On 16th November 2015, Real Gone celebrates its 6th birthday. In some ways, it’s not an important anniversary – it has none of the milsetone charm of a fifth anniversary, or reaching a decade of creativity – but on the other hand, every year Real Gone exists it’s a milestone, nonetheless. People are still reading; bands are still hitting us up for review and we’re still attempting to open people’s ears to a world of cult music.
This weekend, Real Gone reaches a special milestone – five years of internet presence. As that famous musical philosopher Mr. David Bowie once sang: “Five years…what a surprise.” It’s been a really hard road to get so far, but it’s certainly been rewarding – over the recent years, we’ve met a bunch of really great people and heard some amazing music, a huge amount of which might have passed under our radar if we weren’t constantly reviewing stuff. Who knows…maybe some of those albums would have passed under your radar too?
