Happy Holidays To The World! Band Aid Perform ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’
Whoever you are, whatever your beliefs, whatever is your situation, I wish every single one of you happiness and good health this Holiday Season, and beyond!
Please don’t forget to notice those who’ve fallen on hard times — the less fortunate amongst us — and don’t allow them to become the invisible. Please help them in anyway you can.
And don’t let any party or politician destroy your sense of hope for a better world. Change has never come easily.
Here’s to a better year!
The original Band Aid perform their fabulous hit from the early 80s: ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas Time?’ Enjoy!
FREE 12-Song Download: Carbon/Silicon (Ex-Clash Mick Jones) New LP, ‘Carbon Bubble’
Great news for all impoverished music lovers out there!
Carbon/Silicon, featuring — one of my all-time favorite songwriters — Mick Jones (formerly of The Clash and Big Audio Dynamite) and Tony James (formerly of Generation X), have just released their new 12-Song LP entitled The Carbon Bubble. It is available at the Carbon/Silicon site as a free download. THAT’S RIGHT, FREE DOWNLOAD! Get over there, and get it!
Also, for those of you who don’t have it yet, be sure to download their fabulous two-song EP, Maybe That’s The Meaning of Life, as well — co-written and recorded with Gary Kemp (formerly of Spandau Ballet).
I’m playing The Carbon Bubble LP right now as I type, and it is awesome! The tracks “What’s Up Doc” and “The Best Man” — a favorite of mine so far — both have an authentic late 70s punk sound — and could easily pass as early Clash tunes. “Reach For the Sky” is great as well — sort of has that now-familiar Carbon/Silicon sound. “Make it Alright” has an early 60s, garage sound — just fantastic!
Carbon/Silicon have written an awesome album! — definitely, one of the best releases of 2009! Mick Jones has still got it. And now he’s giving it away.
Once you’ve downloaded and had a chance to give it a spin, let us know what you think. Enjoy!
