One of my favourite things about the internet is its permanence. After all its a system that was designed to withstand nuclear attack and occasionally I will find myself on a friends old myspace or blog that looks like it has been locked away in the depths of a bunker for a decade. Navigating your way through these archaic old remnants of web technology and design is a little like going up in the attic or blowing the dust off an old photo album and I find it really inspiring. I dont know if having so much of our lives online and visible to everyone will make us more honest about ourselves or turn the entire human species schizophrenic but one or the other is happening as we speak and its all going to be online in the biggest history book ever...

Yeaaaaaaaah. So heres some of whats inspired me in the last couple of weeks!....

Broadwater live for the first time in 10 years!

Yup, they said it wasnt possible but it actually happened. After a miserable Chelsea v Arsenal match things picked up when i got to see my mates in Broadwater do their thing at the Enterprise in Chalk Farm road, as part of Camden Calling, a charity event for the homeless. The room was pretty much filled out with lots of friendly faces and the crowd seemed to really enjoy it. So good after seeing these guys at practice so many times to finally be on stage and look like they were enjoying themselves! Hopefully this will be the start of a much more fruitful and motivated Broadwater :) "Lovers", live by Broadwater at the Enterprise, 3rd October 2010

Im not going to go into massive detail about the following myspace pages i have recently revisited because a) I hate classifying music as im rubbish at it and b) Youre probably a better judge but do please have a listen!

First up is my dear brother under his Dot Rotten pseudonym (he got there WELL before the grime artist btw). Chopped Marvin Gaye and Nina Simone? A nice remix of the Boom Bip classic "Roads must roll" thrown in for good measure. I dont get the last track in the slightest but to each his own, Weirdo!

Next up is the inimitable and always original Sam Seed or Chick Norris, both names under which my old uni pal releases some of his vivid and elcectic musical musings. Im not even going to try and categorise this stuff but Ill have you know this cat is always ahead of the pack, just wish he'd do more! Listen to "Pedros Demise"

Another friend from way back when, the rambunctious and prolific Hector Osbert. This guy has more pseudonyms than Ive had buckets of KFC. Check him out here, here and here

More to come soon!

Next time the 5-0 stop you on a dual carriageway at 3 in the morning clutching a 1980s samsonite briefcase containing the above items, just tell them youre an art student.
