GIVEAWAY COMPETITION!

So, on the 20/5/13, it’ll be the one-year anniversary of RichReviewz, and while it’s still a goldfish to a lot of whales as far as online music journalism goes, I’m proud of it so far. So, in celebration, I’m doing a giveaway competition!

What are the prizes? Well, I’m giving you guys the chance to win three CDs: Slayer’s “God Hates Us All”, Trash Talk’s “Eyes & Nines” and Pig Destroyer’s “Book Burner”, as well as a Tangled Parrot t-shirt of your chosen size.

To win these, all you have to do is simply share this post on Facebook, easy as that. I’ll take names of people who have shared the page, then when the competition is over, I’ll put all the names in a hat and pick out a winner – then I’ll mail said person, ask you for your shirt size and address, and then send the prizes your way.

I have to warn that this is a UK ONLY competition. I can’t afford to pay for international p+p sorry, as much as I’d like to. Competition ends on 1/6/13!

So yeah, you’re in for a chance to win three awesome releases and a t-shirt for free. GO!

Top 10 Disappointments of 2012

Basically, this is a personal list of disappointments, be it that an album wasn’t as good as I’d hoped or a band broke-up or whatever. A negative list, but I’m sure a few of us can agree on a few. Continue reading

My “I’LL BE YOUR MIRROR 2012” (London) experience.

What can I say about a Friday and Saturday at I’ll Be Your Mirror? I saw Slayer play Reign In Blood in its entirety, saw Sleep play (never thought I would), met Steve Brooks of Torche/Floor and had a great time sightseeing. Continue reading

I’m going to I’ll Be Your Mirror in London.

Yes, that’s right, I am going to the ATP event held at the Alexandra Palace, that is co-curated by All Tomorrow’s Parties and the post-rock titans Mogwai. I’m really excited and it’s going to be great! I’m only going for the Friday and Saturday, and then hopefully sightseeing on the Sunday, but this is all about the music. So I’m drawing up my plans and timetable, and this is what I have planned.

For the FRIDAY…

4.30 – 5.15: A STORM OF LIGHT
5.45 – 6.15: YOB  (leaving early to catch…)
6.30 – 7.30: MELVINS
*
8.15 – 9.15: SLEEP
9.45 – 11.00: SLAYER

*Wolves In The Throne Room might be a possibility for 15 minutes after Melvins finish, depending on how difficult it is getting from one room to the other. Unfortunately, I might have to miss them.

As for the Saturday, I have a lot less clashes due to less bands that I want to see, which means I might actually be looking at the stalls, the cinema and taking part in whatever might be there. So for SATURDAY…

1.45 – 2.30: FLOOR
3.00 – 3.45: HARVEY MILK
5.00: MIXTAPE SWAP
6.45 – 7.30: MUDHONEY
8.15 – 9.15: BALAM ACAB
9.30 – 11.00: MOGWAI

Seeing as I have a lot more gaps, it’ll be cool to check out the merch stands and other stalls I’ve heard about. Also, if anyone is going to IBYM and planning to take part in the “Mixtape Swap”, give me a shout, would be cool to meet people with similar music interests and swap tapes (or CDs).

So yeah, I’m damn excited. It’s a dream to be able to see Slayer play their iconic Reign In Blood in its entirety, one of my favourite albums of all time and one of many CDs I’m surprised I haven’t broken from overplay. And it’ll be the second time I’ll be seeing Melvins, which is crazy for me. It’s just going to be a great event, and the variety in music is astounding – I actually wish I was going for the Sunday so I could catch El-P.

If you’re a music nut who’s also going, don’t be afraid to hit me up for a meet, or recommend me a band to see that I haven’t put down already. I’ll be putting up a review of the event sometime next week, so keep an eye out or subscribe with the button on the right of the page – it’s going to be emotional!
