Brian has taken up his responsibilities for Ralph's Life from today and has picked his first Video Of The Week. It is Afflictions by young Welsh band The Pitchforks.

Afflictions, written and performed by The Pitchforks.
Recorded and produced by Steffan Pringle at Musicbox Studios, Cardiff.















Brian's fist ever choice of a favourite video in 2018 for Ralph's Life is Best Things by The Boston Shakers which was filmed in Liverpool venue EBGBS

"What do you get when you mix Fun Lovin' Criminals with Tijuana Bibles and stir in a bit of John Mayall and Dr Feelgood? Liverpool six-piece The Boston Shakers of course.











No 4: Pyramid Park





No automatic alt text available.
Winter 2017 saw Cambridge based artist Pete McCallen a.k.a. PYRAMID PARK release the second single Born To Be Brave from his wonderfully crafted debut album Vulnerability.


Recorded in Glasgow at Gloworm Studio’s with producer Iain Hutchison, the alt-pop artist and Hutchison created an album based on their mutual faith. References are as broad as Phoria, Two Door Cinema Club and Gabriel Khane.








No 5: Luna Rosa


No automatic alt text available.

Luna Rosa are an Alt-Psych Indie four piece hailing from Corby.They profess to playing, "drums and bass that shake the cranium, guitars that wail like a banshee, anthemic lyrics that will have the masses bellowing from the utmost top of their lungs as they are forced to move by the wall of sound that now induces them. Brash and raucous scenes held on a plethora of euphoria as Luna Rosa have taken to the stage."












We are delighted here on Ralph's Life to be premiering the video to accompany Mule, a track from the album It's Hard to Be Happy When Your Heart Is Full Of Sin by Equinox. Ralph reviewed the book a year ago almost to the day, followed by a feature on the album prior to its release earlier this year to a raft of critical acclaim.

The video for Mule sees the starkly disturbing spoken word of Equinox overlaid on an exquisitely simple soundscape by American musician Nat Lyon








No 7: Tiger Lilly

When the muse comes a calling they say there's no stopping her inspiration; just ask songwriter/musician Andrew Norquay

After years away from music due to commitments as a commercial diver, the creative roar within Andrew has erupted, bringing a new energy and adventure for his alt rock sound.
