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.

60FT Dolls

60FT Dolls were a short-lived band from Wales. They were essentially a rock and roll band but they got lumped into the whole Britpop scene. My first 60FT Dolls experience was at the Dragonfly club in Los Angeles. I saw that they were playing but I had never heard their music so I thought I'd check them out. I was completely blown away by their music. It was so ridiculously rocking, it wasn't even funny. After the show, I immediately went out and bought their album, The Big 3. I saw them every time they came back to L.A. to play, which, interestingly enough, was another 4 or 5 times. Small bands from England usually never came back to the US more than twice.

Sadly, the Dolls broke up shortly after releasing their second album, Joya Magica.

Here are some of my favorite 60FT Dolls tunes. You're going to wanna seek the Dolls records after you hear these songs:
