God Save 6Music

This morning The Times reported that two of the BBC’s digital radio stations 6Music and The Asian Network will be shut down as part of corporation wide cut backs.

Scriptwriter, journalist, broadcaster and sometimes 6Music DJ Andrew Collins put together this great piece covering the reasons behind any closure and why the loss of 6Music (and The Asian Network) is bad news for everyone.

Just some of what we will all be missing if 6Music were to close down.

Deftones put on their Rocket Skates

Deftones have just released Rocket Skates their first new song since a car accident left bassist Chi Cheng in a coma.

Sergio Vega has joined the band on bass but I wouldn’t say he has changed the sound much; Rocket Skates is typical Deftones, loud riff heavy and awesome.

The new album Diamond Eyes is out on May 18th I for one am hoping for more of the same (again).

Download Rocket Skates at or direct from here, want to win stuff by blogging/facebooking/tweeting about Rocket Skates? You can do it here. (Yes I would have posted this anyway, why? Because Deftones rule.)
