Portugal. The Man and graffiti/art fans should head over to Arty Graffarti Blog to watch an amazing “making of” clip for the band.

Disclaimer: I might have jumped the gun a little bit last weekend when I told you the Splendour in the Grass Festival was on. It wasn’t. Dickhead! Got the dates mixed up, or I was abducted by aliens…

* Notice what I did there? A little reference to olden days Something For Kate.

I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!
