This is the official first post of Electric Mohawk, a music blog I’ve decided to start that focuses on my musical interests… and other things. The premise of the blog is simple (for now); music reviews, rants, and live audio downloads galore!
To give you a taste of some of the music I listen to, here’s a VERY brief and abridged list:
- A Perfect Circle
- Depeche Mode
- New Order
- OURS/Jimmy Gnecco
- Tesla Boy
- Queens of the Stone Age
- The Pixies
- The Killers
- David Bowie
- Abandoned Pools
- The Cure
- Leonard Cohen
The list could go on forever, really.
A Little About Me
I’ve always had a fascination with music for as long as I could remember. Rather than pursuing a career in music education or performance like some of my high school classmates, I decided to go to school for other passions of mine (computing, philosophy/religious studies), but have always kept true to my musical interests. I’m a big concert goer, and always love to go with friends.
Please take my musical rants with a grain of salt. They’re
probably biased, and I’m pretty vocal about some of the music I don’t like (most country music, Nickelback, Nickelback rip offs, overly done auto-tune). Never, though, hesitate to chime in 😉
The site still isn’t 100% designed. In fact, it may not even look the same in a few months. Who knows. I’ll be adding additional features and services as time progresses. Is there anything in particular you’d like to see? I’m open to suggestions.
The name of the site was totally random and seemed to work out. That’s all.
Something rough and quick I put together in Photoshop and Illustrator. Nothing fancy; probably temporary. I got the silhouette image from this Halloween images site (obligatory/legal hyperlink, kinda had to do it, folks, because of the license agreement).
Anyway, enough of the snarkiness. Here’s a little song for you to enjoy….
Old school AFI is where it’s at. Plus, it is sort of fitting with the site title.
