Hello and welcome to Oh! Blogger!, written by Jamie Bains.
I’m a 21 year old sociology and politics student with a huge passion – and nerdiness – for music. This blog started from a love and discovery of the Manchester post-punk band The Fall (the blog is named after their song Oh! Brother, and they are in the picture above) and the wider punk movement, which involved obsessive vinyl and CD collecting, listening and sharing with followers.
After a prolonged break from writing, I returned to the blog in September 2020 to write about a more diverse selection of artists and genres. You can currently find reggae, ambient house, punk, jazz and a whole host of other styles from the weekly It’s Monday Playlists, and future content going into 2021 outside of these playlists will almost entirely focus on new and upcoming artists and albums.
Have a browse through the Artist/Article Index for all my writing on the blog since its inception, and I hope you enjoy the content!
If you are an artist, label or PR company with material to share or a fellow writer, feel free to get in touch via the Contact page of the blog.
