I’m very happy to announce that, starting this week, Off The Tracks welcomes another guest blogger into the fold, a new voice. Jon McLeary’s Ghost of Electricity: War Stories was introduced over a year ago – and continues to run weekly.
The new voice here will be one belong to Michael Ross. He’ll contribute a new fortnightly column that will debut this Wednesday, it’s called Radio Nowhere. In fact I’ll let Michael explain:
Right then, welcome to Radio Nowhere – the little corner of Off the Tracks that Simon has kindly/bravely/foolishly loaned me. I’m going to be popping in here every fortnight to ramble on about music stuff. Older stuff more often than newer stuff I expect, but a bit of everything I hope. Albums? Definitely. Books and movies? Certainly. The Top Ten Hair-Metal Albums of 1988-1991? Naturally.
It’s going to be about the music, but also a bit about the whys and wherefores (and sometimes the how the hells and what the fucks) of being a music fan. Nothing revolutionary, but a different tone and style than Simon delivers, and no doubt some different artists too.
If it seems like you guys are buying into it I might even get cocky enough to tackle topics you suggest. But for the meantime, read… enjoy… hate… comment.
