..and a mere sixteen months after my first post, I finally do my three hundreth! What can I say, it’s been great fun, and continues to be so.
First of all, I thought I’d start off this post with the title track of the album that gave this blog its’ name. The pic at the top is The Cure circa this album. I didn’t do many 17 Seconds club nights but I’m pleased that the blog is still going.
The Cure -‘Seventeen Seconds.’ mp3
I’ve written about a lot of up and coming scottish bands, like the X-Vectors for example…
X-Vectors -‘Now Is The Winter Of Our Discotheque.’ mp3
and watched a few of my favourite bands split up…
Arab Strap -‘Here We Go.’ mp3
The Cooper Temple Clause -‘Let’s Kill Music.’ mp3
I still have to decide on my personal festive fifty, but I guarantee these tracks will be there…
Battles -‘Atlas.’ mp3
Hot Chip -‘My Piano.’ mp3
Justice -‘D.A.N.C.E.’ mp3
Penny Century -‘Nothing Burns Like Bridges.’ mp3
Emma Pollock -‘Adrenaline.’ mp3
As time went by, I got the vague hand of how to post tracks (which I was clueless about when I first started writing a blog!), and started doing interviews too. Getting listed at the Hype Machine was great (thanks Mr. Toad) and getting feedback still makes my day.
Personally, this blog has hinted at some of the ups and downs in life outside of this blog, but much love is due to Mrs. 17 Seconds (I wasn’t even planning it when I started writing this!) and our two cats, our families and friends for keeping me sane.
Here’s to the next X posts…
