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 !

JOY DIVISION : High Hall, Birmingham University 2nd May 1980 (Final Gig).

A historic recording this afternoon, as this is the last ever gig performed by Joy Division, though it was never intended to be. They were less than a fortnight away fom their debut US tour, though Curtis' suicide ended the dream. Above is a photo from this gig & the Students Union poster.
