What is Cool Music Central all about? Cool music, of course!

I've been looking for exciting new music ever since my school years, back in the early '80s. Bands like The Jam, Siouxsie and the Banshees or Bauhaus were some of the great new names of that era; now they're among "alternative" rock's classics. The mission of Cool Music Central is to discover the great new music and music makers of today that could hopefully define what is considered classic in the future. Along the way, we'll remind you of some of the great music of the past, we'll write the occasional record review, we'll make lists of our favorite new releases, we'll go to concerts and tell you what happened with exclusive photos and videos. It'll be cool!
