an online music magazine about the West Midlands. This is a fledgling project and we are hoping to grow in the coming months and years. Cul-de-Sac is designed to be a one-stop resource for music fans in the region, as well as being a vital source of information for people regardless of their geographical position
Cul-de-Sac has the sort of news, album reviews, gig reviews and so on that you’d expect from this sort of music site but with a West Mids slant.
I’m dead pleased to see this spring up, partly because I’m hoping it’ll take a weight off CiB.Â When I get emails with local bands’ MySpace pages or gigs/nights/etc listings I’m wary that if I mention one I’d have no reason (other than my own bias) for not mentioning them all.Â There are a bunch of sites doing that job better than I ever could.
There’s Live Brum, What’s On In Brum, Birmingham Gig Guide, Birmingham Alive and others for listings. Birmingham Live and The Hearing Aid take care of reviews and again, there’s a few others doing that too.Â However, there was a big Cul-de-Sac-shaped hole for news and reviews.Â I’ve high hopes for this one.
What might be even more interesting would be for a few of the above-mentioned to find a way of sharing their content somehow.Â Just a thought…
