Dedicated to reviews and news of music for film, TV and games

Thursday, October 21, 2010


Still no reviews for you, I am afraid. I think I'd best give up making promises. I just hadn't realised how much other work had piled up whilst I was engaged outside. I'm catching up as fast as I can though, and I think that's all I'd better say for now. But, at least here's some news from Top Dollar PR:-
