Amazon Prime Day Don’t Miss It.

Amazon Prime Day 

 

You’ve heard of Black Friday, yeah? The name that was given to the shopping day after Thanksgiving in the USA. More recently they’ve added Cyber Monday where the electronics and electricals are sold cheap. Well, the good news is you can buy plenty of Christmas gifts and birthday presents earlier in the year.

 

When Is Amazon Prime Day This Year?

 

One way to find out is to ask your friend; “Alexa, when is Prime Day?” Prime Day is the middle of July, so for 2019, these dates fall on 15th & 16th July. What most people don’t understand is there are also offers available beforehand. These Pre-prime deals are also available just for Prime Members. You can even use the search engines, just type in ‘ when is prime day and hopefully the correct answer comes back.

 

How Do You Get These Offers?

Prime Day starts with signing up for AmazonPrime, believe it or not. Yes, it really is that simple. Just sign up!

There are some great savings to be had, some good savings and there are also a few quite average discounts. Keep in mind though, these are being offered with the free delivery, so that is an extra bonus.

 

There are other advantages with Prime, we really enjoy the video and tv services. There’s great viewing with some Prime Original series, which are only available to watch as a Prime customer.

We covered the tv and film aspect here briefly, but there are plenty of great series, shows, and films. Literally, something for all the family to enjoy.

 

Premier League Football On Prime

I bet you weren’t aware of this? Well, you can watch 20 Premier League games live & exclusive on Prime Video this December.  No better way to recover from the Christmas Day festivities, than spend a day watching all the Boxing Day Premiership games. Now might be the time to grab the new TV you’ve been promising yourself and get sat down to enjoy great viewing.

Faithless Concert – Nailed It.

 

You Gotta Get To A Faithless Concert

Enemies becoming friends, When bitterness ends, This is my church….

If you don’t know the track, just from those lyrics, you need a kick up the arse.

 

Without a doubt the best live performance I have been to, for the sheer passion and dynamics between performers and audience. I first saw Faithless many moons ago at the Faithless Concert in Manchester in March, 2007. Funky Scottish electro musician, no these aren’t my words, Calvin Harris was supporting and boy what a load of crap that proved to be.

I saw Faithless in Manchester and loved every damn second of the concert. As someone who has bought all their albums ( usually on the day of release ) this was a group I knew I had to see live.

Rollo, Sister Bliss and Maxi Jazz just rock the music world wherever they play. Sales of 15 million+ records and counting is ample proof of the sheer brilliance, of this electronic act.

 

Now it really is a toss up which track I prefer. Insomnia is a popular one with the masses, as it’s one of the most played dance tracks. We Come One is another favourite of mine. Don’t Leave, Salva Mea, Not Going Home,  Mass Destruction, One Step Too Far or Muhammad Ali all are great in their own rights. Want your own copy of Insomnia? Click here for it.

 

 

 

A couple of interesting facts; Felix’s ‘Don’t U Want Me’, was produced by Rollo, selling over 2 1/2 million copies.

Dido is Rollos sister, so he co-wrote and produced Angel and Life for Rent, her first 2 albums. Again these both went on to sell over 12 million copies EACH!

Faithless Concert – Nailed It

So if you ever get the chance to go and see Faithless live, do it. Back in 2007 I enjoyed the passion of Sister Bliss and the energy of Maxi Jazz which made it an unforgettable evening.

 

Unable to make it to a live performance, then you need to check out the latest pricing on the whole range of albums by Faithless.

Proper Music – According to FLS

The Music I Grew Up With.

I have little interest in most of the modern day ‘noise’ that’s referred to as music. Personally, I enjoy a band being able to play their own instruments, read and write their own music.
