Frank Turner is a folky, punk singer from Hampshire. I was a big fan of him in his post hardcore band – Million Dead, I was really sad when they split up, but the sadness soon fell away when I heard his solo folk stuff. I love how honest and (excuse the pun) frank his songs are. I had a really hard time choosing just three of his songs, I was going to have ‘Worse Things Happen At Sea’…

  Lets start off with this:     The Eden Project looks unbelievably awesome at night. It’s got to be one of the best and most unusual venues around, because of this it manages to pull in acts that wouldn’t otherwise come to Cornwall. I love it as a venue, yes it takes a long time to walk out after the gig and the car park can be a bit of a nightmare, but the atmosphere is so well worth…

  As the nights are drawing in and it looks like summer is officially over, I thought i’d hark back to those good summer days. BackBeat Soundsystem are a very funky, reggae 8 piece from Cornwall. If you imagine a perfect summers day, mucking around with friends in the surf and on the beach – BackBeat are that in musical form. The perfect soundtrack to a windows down-drive to the beach. If you are lucky enough to live in Cornwall,…

  This weeks Three on Thursday is the fantastic although fairly unknown Darwin Deez. They’re an indie band from New York. I love their uplifting, creative sound and the singer Darwin’s quirky look. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them live, which is a splendid experience, they pause and do cool little dances in between songs and are just generally, totally rad. (They also make awesome music videos) All of these songs are off their self titled first album: Darwin…

  What’s cooler than a guy skating around the city at night to the Deftones? I really don’t think there is a video on youtube at the moment that is as awesome. It’s directed by filmmaker Brett Novak and stars the skater Jason Park. Romantic Dreams is off Deftones’ album Koi No Yokan. Enjoy.

I’ve been listening to Planet Rock recently while doing some building and Man Cave work. They’ve introduced me to a few new bands and The Temperance Movement are one of them. They are an awesome British Blues Rock band and this is the first single of their upcoming debut album:

Here is some tasty rock nosh for your ears! Mind Your Manners is the lead single off Pearl Jams latest and 10th Studio album Lightning Bolt and is an ultimate smasher. The song has some really hard edged guitar work but the drumming is my favourite part by far.

It’s all been quite rocky so far on Three on Thursday, so I thought I best try and mix it up a little bit with some dance/club music. Where else to go than Calvin Harris. His album 18 Months is pretty much wall to wall hits. It’s very chart, very club, very dance which isn’t always my cup of tea. But given the right place the right time, it definitely hits the spot. I’ll be listening to this, before or…
