5 weird and wonderful Batman soundtracks you cannot miss

July 8, 2015


Awful Batman soundtracks existed way before Christopher Nolan made the franchise grittier than a crumbling gargoyle’s arse crack. Throughout 80s and 90s Batman actually featured more musical numbers than a Mardi Gras pray-away-the-gay camp. Batman, Batman Returns, Batman and Robin and Batman Forever soundtracks were all wonderful and confusing than the last, all capable of sticking in […]

I’m voting Yes to leave the union – I’ll always wish we had the power to improve it instead

September 16, 2014


I am a Yes voter, I decided so last month.

TITP looks dreadful this year

February 23, 2012


Click this link for the T in the park line up Last year I went to TITP and it was one of the best experiences of my life, Foo Fighters, Pulp, Tom Jones and Slash just done it for me, (in that order) mixed with the death of the News of the World and the revelation […]
