When I started this blog with the intention of giving me something to do in the wee small hours when I would be wide awake due to being on feeding duties with our second child, who would make his first appearance in the world four days after I kicked off this thing, I wasn't sure it would last the month, never mind getting passed Leo's teething, walking, talking, growing into the bit of a gobshite he is becoming at the moment. But ten years, bloody hell, that was never on the cards. In recent years there have been a few occasions when it has been difficult to keep it going, especially this last summer when I rashly decided to jack it in completely but here I am, a decade of inflicting what I believe (in my arrogant opinion as L would say), is music that "needs" to be heard, the odd piece of self-indulgent navel gazing and more than a few pointless rants on those few of you who have persevered.
There could only be one song really. Recently I was wondering why nobody had ever covered this and then I said to myself "don't ever tempt fate like that again".
