I guess how much you like this post will depend on just how seriously you take your music. I'll be the first to admit that I can't get enough of the soothing sounds of BvDub or the deeply mysterious sounds that i'm listening to right now of the Xela side project Twells & Christensen, however every now and again something light hearted is needed and light hearted is exactly what Yo Gabba Gabba is, after all it's an American kids show.

It's often said that they don't make kids programmes like they did when I was a lad, and I tend to agree they do come with a healthy dose of biasedness linked to other fond childhood memories and the complete freedom of being a child. Though I will still argue again against that last comment that i'm yet to see a recent series as good as either Willy Fog or Mysterious Cities of Gold.

I've not actually seen Yo Gabba Gabba but from the album, it seems that they do still make childrens TV gold.

I'll let the music do the talking.

Just the tip of the iceberg...just the tip

Don't forget about this, Darren Hayman of Hefner fame is treating us to a song a day for the month of January.

Here's number one, pretty good stuff. There's also a calendar showing his movements throughout the month and who he's planning on collaborating with, should help pass this traditionally long month, plenty to look forward to.

01 It Was Over by Darren Hayman


My name is Darren Hayman. I'm going to write, record and release a song every day during January 2011. They won't all be good but some might be. The songs will be available as high quality MP3s for free for a day or two via Soundcloud Thereafter the songs will be available to buy in MP3 and higher quality formats via Bandcamp Here is a calendar to help show what I am doing and when. I'm pretty full up for musicians and collaborators but that shouldn't stop you asking. I would particularly like to hear from film makers who might want to make videos etc. You can contact me here januarysongs2011@gmail.com On this page I hope to post the songs, a daily blog, videos, drawings and photos. Wish me luck.
