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 !

The Specials, Australia, July 2009

Here we have The Specials gig from Melbourne, Australia, 30/7/09. Complete gig, and a pretty good quality sounding audience recording : http://rapidshare.com/files/359494211/SPECIALS_Melbourne_30-7-09-FULLGIG.rar There's also a part gig from Sydney - sadly the whole file is still apparently unavailable : http://rapidshare.com/files/359474563/specialssydneyoz2009.rar ENJOY THEM, PLAY 'EM LOUD & LEAVE A COMMENT. THANKS !
