    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Newton Faulkner




Just picked up this album (Hand Built by Robots) by Newton Faulkner. Just my cup of tea – singer/songwriter, unfussy production, good arrangements and thoughtful lyrics. This track is called Uncomfortably Slow.

  1. The singer/songwriter genre is very popular just now and this track is very pleasant. It can be very difficult for artists such as this to break through to a global market unless backed by a massive pluggers budget.
    The net and sites such as myspace are overflowing with guys like this who can now make music and get it out to people without the need of major label assistance.
    I'm sure if people had the time to surf the net they would find at least one great undiscovered talent each day, one of the advantages of blogs like this is that others can now assist in posting their own findings for others to pick up on.

  2. Presumably Newton Faulkner's record co. are supporting him because I first learned of him from a tv ad!
    I have enjoyed Damien Rice and Scott Matthews a lot and even Jack Johnson is good Sunday morning listening.
    What you say is true and I see it only as positive that so many more people are making music and sharing it.

    That was my point, money buys exposure which on many instances, not this particular one though, results in lesser talents gaining eexposure whilst greater talents remain in the shadows appreciated only by the few in the know.
