I’m very pleased tonight to welcome to this blog a great friend, and co-conspirator in this endless journey. Brendan Blake will be taking the same approach to his frankly mind-boggling record collection as myself, guiding the reader from Abaddon to 1349, via Chris de Burgh and quite possibly David Hasselhoff.
Aside from the reviews of the more outre elements of Brendan Blake’s collection, I’m especially looking forward to the odd future moments when we will cross the streams, and get alternative perspectives on the same albums. Between us, we should cover a fairly large chunk of the essential extreme music released during the last 50 years, and an even larger proportion of the less essential works.
So, welcome Brendan. I look forward to publishing the first review imminently.
