MUSIC OF THE WEEK! "Both Sides Of The Gun"

Having only ever been on one side of the gun (as yet, fingers crossed!) and not to often there either, the name of Ben Harper's new double album intrigued me, to say the least.


I was first introduced to this brilliant musician/ poet and or artist a number of years ago by a good friend of mine (thanx Scott) and have been constantly amazed by his raw talent and dedication to creating what i call 'real music' with energy and soul that is rare these days and makes him stand out from the crowd.

It is hard to compare Ben Harper to others but names like; Dylan, Marley, Cooder etc... spring to mind when you feel his awesome stage presence and versatility with instruments and sounds. Ben is truly a musical, lyrical and spiritual genius (& I don't use that word lightly).

Do yourself a favour and check out his
website where you can listen to and experience the man himself along with his talented and faithful band 'The Innocent Criminals'.

'"In the United States, you are presumed innocent before being declared guilty but generally, if you are Black, you are not necessarily guilty but you are certainly an innocent criminal — you are suspect."
