Snooze Button on RTRFM 92.1 / Edie Green

I have been a bit preoccupied recently with my new hobby, which is being a radio presenter on RTRFM. Below is a link to my latest show.

A song for all those people who want their groove back! #iwantmygrooveback

This is a simple song – possibly for Malcolm Turnbull (I think he needs his groove back)

Musical goosebumps @Muse

Sometimes there is a special moment when I hear music, or for that matter watch a movie, when something gives me a physical reaction. I had this listening to Cyndi Lauper sing here in Perth, listening to Pat BEnatar sing Don’t Let It Show, listening to the Arctic Monkeys debut album, and a few other occasions. It happened again last week while I was on a plane from Newman to Perth.  I came across Muse live in Rome at the Olympic Stadium on the entertainment system. This was shear magic.

Now, I have been a Muse fan for a while, but never heard any live recordings. This is ridiculous because I just love live recordings. Some bands are simply better when recorded live. However, in my 40-odd years in this earth I don’t think I have heard a live band as good as Muse. On that flight I got goosebumps from head to toe listening to that music. It was all I could do not to let loose with some fist-pumping, head banging,  shouting joy. This was a moment that left me thinking, Why haven’t I seen these guys play live? Follow Me, Plug In Baby, and Supermassive Black Hole sound magnificent live. They sound great on studio recordings, but Muse live add depth, more feeling, more oomph to all these songs. Listening to Muse was pure joy.

But that moment was more than joy, it reinvigorated me, gave me inspiration to find some new tunes in my guitar. Now,  I don’t pretend to be a great guitar player, or songwriter, but it brings me great pleasure to play and find new sounds. And thanks to Muse, I have found some. Next time they come to Perth I will move mountains to make sure I get there and fistpump, head bang, and yell to my hearts content. So thanks Matt, Dominic, and Chris, you have made my life richer and inspired me to write more music. It may be mediocre, but it’ll be a lot of fun.

That Monday Feeling

I think we all get that Monday feeling every now and then

 

 

White beaches, blue ocean, palm trees & rum

That’s what I was thinking of when this came to me

 

New music – In the City after Midnight

In the City After Midnight

This was something I came up with last week.

 

Dark Nothing

This is something I did tonight – a poem to music…what do you think?
