Acting under strict orders from Bella Kitchen (née Gerens), I happened upon a collaborative blog she’s helping to launch. I’ll let her explain.
The musical refuge of British political bloggers is now coming online.
The brainchild of Neil of the Bleeding Heart Show, its purpose is to take some of the strain off us beleaguered partisans as the election approaches and allow us to come together to talk about something else which is dear to our hearts: music.
I encourage all of you poli bloggers out there (or semi-poli bloggers) who are interested in writing something here and there to visit the website and send an email to let us know you’re keen. It’d be great if loads of people joined in. We’ve already got posts in the dock and we hope to go properly live this weekend!
And if you don’t want to write but you like music, please add Heaven is Whenever to your blogroll/RSS feed. You can also follow on Twitter.
The blog has had a good first week, attracting posts and comments from across the blogomong.
You’ll see below that I penned my own paltry contribution, which I have alerted Bella to for inclusion – hopefully it will reach the required standard, because I have a plethora of other bands and genres to talk uninformed shite about.
