New Model Soldier gig

New Model Soldier played possibly their last gig as singer David Kurley says farewell due to upcoming migration to Portugal. The band supported David’s other act, Babyshambles. Good set from both followed by a night of excellent DJ model soldier

After the gig I bumped into Jennie and Josh. Richard Hawley was in the background behind my ear

Häagen-Dazs ad – music by Richard Hawley

For Richard Hawley London Roundhouse 2007those who watched X-Factor tonight and managed to stick it through the ads each break you may have enjoyed the melodic track accompanying the new  Häagen-Dazs advert. It happens to be from one of my favourite relaxing musicians Richard Hawley. The track titled Open Up Your Door can be heard on last fm.  It’s not, in my opinion, his strongest track, but it suits the ad perfectly. Now if you want a really good Richard Hawley track try this one: The Sun Refused to Shine – shear genius!

Oh, and he’s from my home town of Sheffield…all the best people came from the Steel City 😉
