Hello all,

Just a quick request. Does anyone have a For Against album they’d be willing to send my way, online of course. Just comment please. I need it for an article and, once again, my local record store has let me down. Any and all help is appreciated, thanks!

Free internet radio, broadcasting the best in indie, rock, 60s: new and old, mods and rockers!



Feedback [18 Apr 2006|10:45pm]

Please read this and give me some feedback, preferably in the next hour!!

The terms rock, rap, funk, pop, school choir and opera are not often heard all in the same sentence, but when it comes to describing Jason Mraz it’s impossible to choose only one genre. Mraz recently played a show to a sold out crowd of 900 at Glasgow’s Queen Margaret Union, on his mini acoustic tour of the UK. Jason was accompanied on his tour by his acoustic guitar and sidekick Toca Riviera, Jason’s back up vocalist and percussionist. The duo played a set comprising of songs from all of Mraz’s albums and included a few covers that won over the older members of the crowd. If your taste in music is more Westlife than Maroon 5 then Mraz is not for you. With a stage presence that is fluid and natural, Mraz is something fresh in a world of choreographed poster pin ups. Not pop enough for the teeny market, and not emo enough for the current charts Jason Mraz is a force to be reckoned with as he wins over the music misfits of the moment.

This silver-tongued magician can rouse a crowd in minutes with his infectious melodies and can instantly turn the tables causing even the coldest heart in the room to melt at the sound of his angelic tones. A show with Mraz at the helm is a dazzling journey through as many different styles as possible in 90 minutes, leaving the spectator feeling dizzy, slightly sweaty and positive their ticket price was worth their hard earned cash.

I had to write 250 word pice for selection onto an arts journalism course. It's just for the tutor to get a feel for my writing!
Please give feedback!!

Writers? [20 Nov 2005|01:38pm]

Hi all.

I run a website/promotions thing called GrooveStealer. The promo side is going really well with just a small team, but the website is really rocketing and we're getting far too much stuff to cover when there's only a team of five or so at the heart of it.

Thus, we're looking for music writers around the UK to help us out. If you've a couple of hours a week to spare to listen to some music and write about it, maybe knock out the occasional feature or article - and, of course, receive free CDs, gig tickets etc, and you'd like to get on the GrooveStealer writing team, please get in touch with lewis@groovestealer.co.uk, and I'd be very grateful. Thank you very much.

Hello, there. I'm an American student who will probably end up in London for a couple of months this summer. I'd be doing an internship for either Sony/EMI or most likely MOJO magazine. I'd really really love to work for one of these companies but that won't be possible if I have to get my own flat/pay full rent, etc. I'm sure I'll have more details later, but I just wanted to pose the question now: would any of you possibly be able to let me sleep on your couch for a couple of months? I can paint you pretty pictures, cook really well, amuse you with my American accent, and play awesome music.

I am traveling to the UK for the Glastonbury music festival from my home in the United States in June. I will be writing for the Richmond Times-Dispatch and Nine Times music magazine. In addition to this, I am the assistant music director at a local radio station, Richmond Indie Radio. At Glastonbury I hope to conduct interviews with artists that will be put on the Richmond Times-Dispatch website. (Massive numbers of people read the RTD and go to its site. The Tri-Cities area has over a million people.) These interviews will also be broadcast over Richmond Indie Radio.

I have been trying to arrange numerous interviews at Glastonbury. However, I recently found out that my contacts with music management companies and promotions companies do not hold over to events in the UK. I am asking for your help on a couple of counts. Do any of you have UK music contacts? I’m especially looking to find Peter Doherty’s manager (Rough Trade UK). It’s really distressing how hard it is for me to line anything up. I feel that I’m fairly connected in the US, but I can’t even get interviews with American artists like Ani diFranco or Brendan Benson because of the way the managing companies in the US hold control over their events.

In addition to this, I’m looking for more outlets that would be interested on articles on Glastonbury and the music scene in the UK. Please let me know if you can help with any of this!

Hey, peoples.

My name's Lewis Denby. Having spent my last few years dabbling in freelance web journailsm, most contributions going to www.videogameslife.com and www.roomthirteen.com, myself and a few others have decided to set up a new music webzine called GrooveStealer. It's in monthly editions and, although the first one's not out until June 10th, you can find the website at www.groovestealer.co.uk.

Basically, although we've managed to piece together the first issue with just a five-strong team, we're aware that in order to make something really impressive out of this we need to expand. As such, we're looking for budding music journalists all around the country to write reviews, articles, news pieces, and so on.

Unfortunately, we can't offer any pay at this stage: it's something we're all doing voluntarily. However, occasionally, we will be able to send CDs for review and - with any luck - the occasional free gig ticket, though the latter will be rare. These aren't too abundant though, so they're awarded on merit, for quality of journalism and commitment to the site.

So... if you're interested, wing us an email at lewis@groovestealer.co.uk. You don't need any prior experience or to be the best writer on the planet. So long as you can write coherently, nonjudgementally and entertaningly, that's all we need.

Up for it? Drop us a line. Thanks for your time.

Just to let you know that I joined :-)

My name is Emily, I'm almost 16, and I live in South Wales (unfortunately).

I love most types of rock music - indie, punk, metal, emo, grunge, riot grrl..., if you're interested in knowing more of my musical tastes, just ask

Music journalism is near enough the only thing I can do, and I love it. So it made sense to join this community, hope it'll be fun

I am an American going to the UK to write about music for two weeks in June. I wanted to know what some good clubs or shows from June 27 to July 3 are. Also, keep in mind that I'm stil under 18, so I have no idea what rules are for entering clubs when I'm not of legal drinking age. So, any suggestions? Also, other than shows and clubs, how should I learn about the London music scene?

I'm an American who'll be going to the UK this summer to write about Glastonbury and...other stuff. I've got plane tickets and such, but as of yet only have Glastonbury lined up. I wanted to know what you think are some good touristy areas in England and Scotland, and if there are any good concerts/clubs in or around London for the last two weeks of June. Has anyone heard of or been to StayBeautiful? I'm a big fan of the Manics and figured I might try that out, but I've really got to come up with some ideas for this trip and these stories! Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I've created a forum at www.silobass.co.uk/forum for UK based bands, musicians and people with a general interest in music. It's only just started and needs to get going (which is where I'm hoping you will come in) but I'd like to think that we could help get some new bands discovered or at the very least share new music and experiences with each other.

Thanks for listening and remember www.silobass.co.uk/forum
