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

Thanks & big respect to Martin of Skelmersdale, who's very kindly just sent in a pile of rare Black Slate material, including some obsure vinyl rips. I'll kick off this cold, wet Bank Holiday Weekend with this eponymous title & post the rest over the next few days, along with more Stranglers titles & a few other bits & bobs. Download, enjoy & leave a comment or two. I'm sure Martin would be keen to read these also...


  1. I wasn't asking you to remove the post mate I am happy if you want to post my stuff just give me some credit for it and promote the blog. We are all on the same side here.

  2. No worries mate. I hadn't realised that : a) it was your post & b) It was so recent.
