Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

The Genius of Howard Devoto (Pt2)

Another Manchester related post this morning, featuring Howard Devoto post - Buzzcocks. Other than The Specials, 2009 also saw Magazine reform & tour the UK, though unfortunately I couldn't make any of the dates. Here is a collection of several John Peel Sessions recorded by devoto, Adamson & co. http://rapidshare.com/files/338708994/Magazine_-_Maybe_It_s_Right_To_Be_Nervous_Now_CD3__The_Peel_Sessions.rar
