The Red The White and The Blue are Paul Cronin on guitars, Ed Loades on vocals, Rick McMurray (Ash) on drums and Taka Hirose (Feeder) on bass.  

Delivered as a music/comic combination entitled ‘The Balloonist’, this is a story about a love triangle between two feuding brothers and a girl that turns deadly told over ten songs which will be released on the 1st of every month. The band also promise to keep us on our toes with surprise guest appearances and hidden content. Here is video number one entitled ‘Crisis’…

James Walsh(Starsailor) talks to ohDearyme about drugs, fame and his soundtrack for the new film ‘Powder’. Also featuring interviews with upcoming talent – Liam Boyle who plays soul searching Keva – (lead singer of fictional band The Grams) and Jo Woodcock.

Whilst it wasn’t my cup of tea it might however, be yours. With a very strong soundtrack I felt that the storyline let it down. It’s hard to place my finger on the part where it was lost…too many cooks in the kitchen perhaps? Too much of a desire to capture the ‘misunderstood’ youth? I don’t know. But onwards and upwards! And each to their own – you could always watch it yourself and make your own mind up because..after all..we should always remember ‘if you don’t control your mind, someone else will’ John Allston

As a huge Back To the Future fan – Nike have released the ‘future’. And it’s clever advertising has worked on me… apparently Tinie Tempah bought the first pair of the limited edition trainers at a snip – £23,610 and all proceeds are going to the Michael J Fox foundation… I WANT SOME!. Let’s hope they didn’t scrimp on the manufacturing though if you get what I’m saying..

Thanks to Steven Heycock for camera,





FIRST FESTIVAL OF THE SUMMER – Wychwood Festival 2011 – a family festival based in Cheltenham, a gentle ease into the summer and a fantastic start for those who like clean toilets – space and to be able to watch a band without getting urine thrown in your face…yes – I think the words I might choose to describe it would be ‘clean, tidy and respectable’. They even had hot showers. My only real gripe being the festival transport being pretty much nil (I had to grab a lift from some strangers to the bus terminal – a nice friendly couple – but throughout the very short journey I had convinced myself they were Rosemary and Fred West and I was to be buried beneath a blossom tree – there’s being eco friendly and there’s being safe ya get me? I guess a vivid imagination could be life saving)

But anyway – I’m still alive! Yay! They were nice lovely citizens after all! Yay! Here’s an edit of the joyous occasion. Interviews featuring My First Tooth, Pandas and People, Robyn Hitchcock and Mark Morriss of The Bluetones. To save arguments I have written them in no order of importance or preference.

Special thanks to the ever talented Dean Anderson and Dariush Rashidi – for Camera work and Co-Direction!
