They say that your kids don’t inherit your taste in music – but your love of it.
Although when you are young the worst music in the world is the music your parents are listening to? The flip side to this is that as we grow older the worst music is that which the kids are listening to?
I think I have an eclectic taste in music – although this might have been significantly shaped by an affinity with the rebelliousness of Punk Rock and New Wave. That it still plays most on my iPod is probably a clue! And, of course those shape-shifters like Bowie feature highly.
I listen to music more than I watch TV. I still love live music.
On Saturday night we were at The Bodega in Nottingham for a sell-out gig of local band Ashfields. You can track them down on Facebook and they have an EP out on Spotify. It’s called Home Town.
You can read a Nottingham Post article about them here.
They are a talented lot – although I might be slightly biased about the drummer – Jak Garratt. Yes the clue is in the name.
It’s good to see live music and better still if you know the band and the journey they have been on for the last 12 months or so.
They are worth looking out for…. Honest!
