This blog is all about being a music lover in Glasgow - gig reviews, ramblings, the odd interview, discoveries and musings that hopefully capture some of what is going on in the ever diverse Glasgow Music Scene - be it established, touring or up and coming acts, as well as delving into my record collection from time to time.
Also started a regular podcast in 2016.

Moby with Wayne Coyne - The Perfect Life
Published on Sep 4, 2013
'the idea for 'the perfect life' video is pretty simple...wayne and i in mariachi costumes walking around l.a picking up a very random and disparate bunch of disenfranchised oddballs and leading them via trolley to a giant party on a roof overlooking l.a while the sun sets.' - moby
The video is as good as Moby's description, the song is even better. Taking in 'Play' style gospel piano and vocals with an added lysergic dash of Flaming Lips leader Wayne Coyne.
One of the best things Coyne has ever done is his single 'The Golden Path' with the Chemical Brothers and I've often wished he had recorded more electronic music. This is nowhere near as dancey or as psychedelic as that particular masterpiece, but it is brilliant.
