I’ve been in discussions the past 48 hours with CN Williams, head of Swansea-based electronic music label, Reelhouse Records. Clifford has kindly agreed to sign several forthcoming Wez G releases… I had a busy week last week, with several tracks having the finishing touches applied to them in the mastering studio. It is pleasing to be able to announce that the debut EP of my Megman vs Wez G project is all ready to go. Boom Beat Zoo EP will demonstrate the exciting fusion of live guitars with electronica. Megman Merrett, a talented Caldicot musician with much experience, has been hammering out hits in the studio with me for a couple of years now… Boom Beat Zoo EP, so called because of the animal association with most of its tracks, is an exciting debut EP, which will hopefully start to generate us a fanbase and assist us in funding further Megman vs Wez G EPs and hopefully a studio album…. The aim is, that once we have finally discovered our true sound, that we take this unique project to live audiences. Boom Beat Zoo offers a glimpse of the sound we are establishing. It covers a wide variety of genres, appealing to electronic aficionados as well as those who prefer acoustic music. Some of it is Cafe Del Mar-esque chillout, others more dancefloor friendly bangers and the epic Kicking Squirrels reminds me, as the producer, very much of the sound of legendary Rock n Roll band, the Doors. I’ve been hard at Ableton to give the project its necessary instrumental oomph and it’s been a steep learning curve… We have about 40-50 unfinished jams ready to progress and we are hoping that the public get behind the release and spend a few pennies on helping to finance the continuation of Megman vs Wez G. Reelhouse Records have taken the plunge and signed the debut EP and we look forward to striking up a successful business relationship with perhaps Wales’ finest independent dance music label. When you look through the Reelhouse back catalogue it is a bit daunting to see such luminary figures releasing tunes there, as Byron Stingly and Lenny Fontana, to name but a few… We hope that our sounds are fully appreciated by the Reelhouse market.   The second new track to be released on Reelhouse Records is a Wez G original: Shine Melody is a funky touch-edged disco…

Match Preview: Chelsea vs Liverpool (29.12.13)

            Brendan Rodgers, as manager of Liverpool, has never lost two games in a row. He accomplished this feat whilst at Swansea too. Yes, we slipped on the carcass of the Christmas Turkey on Boxing Day and fell to Manchester City in a game we should have won. Perhaps it was a case of too much Christmas Day revelry, knowing we had made it to the top of the league for Christmas? Anyway, we cannot change the fact that we go into today’s match at Stamford Bridge in fourth place. Chelsea are a point and a place ahead, in third. Looking at the table after Saturday’s games, it is quite frightening to see that Moyes’ Mancs are just two points below us now. For all the giggling we’ve been doing at them this season…. we really ought to shape up and assert ourselves until we hit the summit again…. and stay there this time. It’s tighter than a pair of leggings at the top this season. On paper, one might suggest that today’s fixture is an easier one than our visit to the Etihad. However, we go into the game with a squad, already plagued with injuries that has been weakened even further. The proximity of the January transfer window will be a godsend for us. If we are to maintain contact with the top four and possibly attempt to win the league we need a stronger squad. Jon Flanagan is still out. Steven Gerrard, closer to recovery is still absent, along with Daniel Sturridge plus the other long-termers. Victor Moses is ineligible due to his loan conditions, ruling out a Boxing Day player. Our squad is thin on the ground. Aly Cissokho, who didn’t win the praise of the fans last week, is likely to deputise at left-back. There is talk of Daniel Agger replacing Mamadou Sakho in the centre half position though some more cautious liverpool pundits have stated that it’d be better to wait for the Hull fixture to make this change. Simon Mignolet will need to be less shaky today, and we’ll need the midfield firing up well. I thought our attacking triangle against Man City did very well. Philippe Coutinho seemed to sparkle and Raheem Sterling continues to be in top form. There has been a question mark over Luis Suarez’s record against the top sides. He has failed to…

Match Preview: Hull City vs Liverpool (01.12.13)

            Liverpool travel to the KC Stadium for an away fixture that at first glance looks a nice comfortable three-pointer after the challenges posed to us at Goodison in the derby last weekend. In sixteen games against Liverpool, Hull City are winless, though two of the four premiership fixtures between the sides have ended in draws. The big headlines for Liverpool is that the SAS is a man down. We haven’t the largest of squads and the element that has had most success so far this season has come undone with Daniel Sturridge picking up a sprained ankle in Friday’s training. Our attack will be spearheaded by Luis alone this week, though with the kind support of Coutinho and Gerrard, maybe this will be enough to see off the challenge from 13th place Hull. Hull City, since promotion, have had a fair amount of success, with this relatively high league position. Their defence has been particularly solid at home though Liverpool are the first major side to face them on their own soil. They are on a losing streak at present, however, and have lost 4 of their last 5 fixtures. The main problem facing Hull, is that despite playing good football from box to box, their strikers have lacked goals. They have the third poorest goalscoring tally in the league at 9, which is what both Luis and Sturridge each have scored independently. Our defence has performed well, though not so much on our travels. Jon Flanagan played a confident role in the derby and is likely to keep his place at left back, though with much of Hull’s forward momentum going through their Egyptian right winger, Elmohamedy, Flanagan could be in for an awkward day. The other main danger for the home side is their playmaker, former Spurs man Tom Huddlestone. He will be fired up to face the England captain Steven Gerrard and he is the most active of Hull’s passers. The Hull defence faces injury difficulties as they lost Paul McShane to a hamstring injury in their defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend. Perhaps, Brendan Rodgers will be spoilt for choice in his selection for central defence, but the gap in attack should prove more troublesome. Could we see a return of the out of favour Iago Aspas? It looks as though Sturridge could be absent for a while and with some…

Match Preview: Liverpool vs Southampton (21.09.13)

            Liverpool vs Southampton, 21st September 2013 Liverpool return to Anfield for a 3pm Saturday fixture, that, on paper, looks a lot more winnable than last time out’s draw away at Swansea. However, The Saints have proved a stumbling block to the Redmen in recent years, with Southampton winning four out of the last six clashes between us, though most of those points won have been at their own ground. Last season the corresponding fixture finished in a 1-0 Liverpool victory. Southampton, though, at St Mary’s, were the last premiership side to inflict defeat upon Liverpool after they totally outplayed us there and won 3-1. Southampton are currently 11th in the league with 5 points out of a possible twelve, having won one, lost one and drawn two. To be fair it’s a relatively good start. They finished 14th in the Premiership last season so they are performing above average at present. Liverpool are, of course, perched back where they belong, at the top of the league with ten points, 3 wins and one draw. Both teams have only conceded 2 goals so a low-scoring match today looks likely as both have mean defences. Daniel Sturridge will look forward today to adding to his goals tally and if he does score it will be the fifth consecutive Premiership game in which he has done so. Daniel Agger will be back ready for selection after missing last Monday’s fixture against Swansea with a side strain. Whether Sakho, Toure or Skrtel will fill in in central defence next to him will be a tricky decision for Brendan Rodgers to make. Our key star winger, Philippe Coutinho, is out for several weeks with his shoulder injury, so it looks likely that either new boy Iago Aspas or Raheem Sterling will be called up for duties to replace him. This will be the last match left for Luis Suarez’s ban so he will be back ready for selection as of the next game. The Saints have left back Danny Fox missing due to injury. It will probably be a fairly tight game, though with Liverpool’s good start to the season and Sturridge’s blinding form, I predict a victory and thee points to extend Liverpool’s early dominance at the top of the league. The match kicks off at 3pm and isn’t being televised live in the UK so you’ll have…

Match Report: Swansea City vs Liverpool (16.09.13) D 2-2

Well, it was an explosive start to the game with Shelvey proving how keen he was to show the Reds they had made a mistake in selling him during the summer transfer window. Shelvey scored in the first minute with a well-taken goal which left Liverpool newcomer, Sakho, in the shade, his premiership baptism not going particularly well. Shelvey, however, was no saviour for Swansea, as only minutes later he inadvertedly gave an easy back pass to Daniel Sturridge, whose on fire goalscoring record allowed him to suitably capitalise on his former teammate’s mistake. It was 1-1. The first half was pretty evenly balanced in terms of possession, with good passing from both teams and end-to-end action. Mignolet made a noticeable save, Skrtel made a critical last ditch goal-line tackle, and Sturridge was unlucky not to score after a perfect Victor Moses cross. Another debutant, Victor Moses was showing his strength down the wing, and he cropped up to score a beautiful goal just before half time. Liverpool went into the interval a goal to the good with the score standing at 2-1. The second half lacked some of the vigour of the first. Coutinho picked up a nasty shoulder injury and was substituted for Iago Aspas. A key player missing no doubt for a while. Shelvey continued his keenness to prove his worth to his new club and was rewarded by setting up the very dangerous Michu, who banged in Swansea’s second goal, making it 2-2. Liverpool threatened the goal far less in the second half and it was frustrating not being able to round off a fourth consecutive victory. Mignolet has a good game overall and made some decent contributions in keeping the Swans out, but he’ll be disappointed to have lost his 100% record of clean sheets. The final whistle came after a good five minutes of injury time and a draw and one point was all that Liverpool could take. Still, Swansea isn’t the easiest of places to go in the Premiership and get a result. We aren’t going to march through the season winning every game. We have to be satisfied with the away point. It places us back at the top of the league, after four games, a point separating us from Arsenal and Tottenham. A home game against Southampton on Saturday could prove a lot easier than tonight’s fixture. Gerrard The Red’s Man…
