Blog de Musique

This is a music blog. Different kinds of music. And commentary on said music. Most of the files uploaded will be AAC files (because I'm an Apple guy) so you best have iTunes to play them. Sorry if you don't. (If any links are dead, leave a comment and I'll reupload.)

I buy way too much music for my own good and then waste my time talking about what music I've bought on my blog.

Soda was another short lived Britpop band from the mid-90's. As far as I know, they only put out 3 singles. I first read about them when they released their debut single, The Young Own The Town. It was around the time when there were a lot of New Wave/punky type bands coming out of the UK and the review I read made it sound like the best single ever. Unfortunately, I was never able to get a hold of the single at the time. This was pre-online ordering days and none of the shops near me carried the single. When their second single, Inside, was released, I made it a point to pre-order it and I was able to get a copy. Soda sound like an alternate version of Menswear (who I liked as well) so I wasn't disappointed at all. I was able to get a used copy of TYOTT years later and it was, indeed, a great glam punk single. Unfortunately, Soda's third single, Dragging You Into My Dreams, wasn't all that great and from there, they faded into obscurity. But their first two singles are worth a listen...
