Catching The Waves Favorite Netaudio Moments 2008

Advent Calendar Door 14 | CTW is responsible for the greasy, erratic and dubious blog entitled Catching The Waves, which, rather appropriately, is based in that greasy, erratic and dubious island known as the UK. He keeps resuscitating it, despite public opprobrium, in gratitude for all the great free music produced by the Creative Commons and netlabel community. Besides, it's cheaper than paying for the stuff. (He has staff to do that for him.) The netlabel scene has restored his enthusiasm for music and enabled him to explore strange, new genres; every day is Christmas Day for netlabel lovers. His blog specialises in recommending albums long after they've been reviewed and recommended by everyone else. CTW is yet to meet someone unpleasant from the CC world. He apologises on behalf of the United Kingdom for forcing the rest of the planet to learn English. He hates HTML and being photographed.

  • Thank you to Mo and all the Phlow team for letting me elbow my way in. I'm enjoying exploring all the different selections and websites - and it's an honour to be in the same company. It's a Phlow party!
