The page includes downloads to previous shows on the description too, so if you’ve only just found out about this, you can still check out anything you’ve missed out on.
Just some fun I thought I might share!
This is a copy of the final paper I had to do for my class on “The Sound of Rock” during my time at The University of Ottawa, a class for which I received an A+ grade.
We were given a selection of texts and songs to choose from, and had to write an essay about one of the songs using one of the analytical techniques present in one of the texts. I chose Ryan Moore’s Sells Like Teen Spirit: Music, Youth Culture and Social Crisis (2009) and Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” from their Significant Other album (1999). Don’t ask me how I managed to write over 2000 words about a Limp Bizkit song which is less than three minutes long. But I did, and here it is.
Yes, you can now read lots of my work at Born Music Online. Being in Canada, my current focus is on album/single reviews and occasional articles, but when I am back in Birmingham I also intend to do reviews of live shows too. Please support Born Music by liking our Facebook page, we need to get the word out as we’re a new group!
Born Music aims to focus on the Midlands music scene, but also give attention to nationally-known, established acts as well. You can find a list of all articles by me, here, if that takes your fancy.
Local bands, feel free to submit your work to me (contact me here, on Facebook, or on Twitter, links on the left of this page), if you want reviewing.
