Back October / November time last year I had the pleasure of undertaking a Lynyrd Skynyrd portrait commission. I decided to base it on a publicity shot from the early 70’s. Check it out below and come and follow Dunstan Doodles on Instagram:

Here’s the latest tune from Welsh noiseniks Future of the Left‘s forthcoming album The Plot Against Common Sense.

I Am The Least Of Your Problems, follows on from last year’s Polymers Are Forever and March’s Sheena Is A T-Shirt Salesman EP’s/singles, and is a typically meaty punch-in-the-face rabble rousing tune from the four-piece – thumping along in delightfully hectic style. Check it out below:

The Plot Against Common Sense is the band’s first full-length studio record since 2009’s awesome Travels With Myself and Another, and gets released on 28th May.

R.E.M. have split up

Today R.E.M announced that they are splitting up.

For over three decades the group have been one of the most critically and commercially acclaimed rock bands on the planet, producing a whole string of brilliantly received albums.

The group enjoyed their best run of success in the late 80’s and early 90’s with the albums, Green (1988), Out of Time (1991) and Automatic for the People (1992).

In a career spanning thirty one years they produced fifteen albums and toured the world dozens of times.

Speaking about the split, singer Michael Stipe said: “I hope our fans realise this wasn’t an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way.”

According to bassist Mike Mills the decision was amicable, “There’s no disharmony here, no falling-outs, no lawyers squaring-off.”
