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

No Posts Today...

I don't think I can be bothered posting any cool sounds today.... I've had 11,017 hits in the two months since I started the blog, with well over 3000 downloads off here. Sadly this traffic has not translated into feedback, comments, banter etc. Thanks to those of you who do take the time to get in touch, leave comments etc. It can be a lonely life as a serial blogger & its important to feel "loved". It can be a thankless task @ times & that's how it feels right now...


  1. i know exactly what you mean mate,thats why i've nearly quit so many times. I've done the same,stopped and wondered why i bother,then posted rants at the people who just leech your stuff and cant be bothered to leave a simple comment.In the end its gotta be something YOU want to do because nothing will ever change on the feedback front.believe me i've tried!!
    chin up...

  2. You are doing a wonderful job,you truly are loved,even though you support City.

    Do keep up all the good work
