More Free music

Head on over to another of Toby's excellent Rock-Til-You-Drop ventures at Rock-Til-You-Drop Records. Sign up and once in you'll find music from Pocket Rocket, The Zone and MagicShip. You have to pay a nominal amount for some of the downloads but a lot are free. Where can you go wrong?

PocketRocket's stuff is toe-tapping, sing-a-long indypop type stuff, reminds me of The Smiths, Squeeze, Divine Comedy, Jarvis Cocker, even hints of Supertramp to my ears... Loads of jangly guitars some great sax playing and one the whole a solid type professional sound that deserves you checking them out.

The Zone are slightly heavier more rock orientated. Long term follows of my blogs my remember a band I reviewed a year or so back called The Reflective who are a local Kent bluesy rock post punk thing. The Zone and them should tour together as the audience would definitely be the same. Try if you like Green Day, Pixies, Metallica, etc.

MagicShip you should know by now - they are the best band from Twickenham! Seriously the album Love Tel Motel makes you think of California, The Byrds, Tom Petty etc. but with a Brit accent and attitude.
