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 !

CRISPY AMBULANCE : Frozen Blood 1980 - 1982.

Interesting compilation album here, consisting of live and rehearsal tracks, one John Peel recording and some songs broadcast as a Piccadilly Radio (Manchester) session. They were often written off as Joy Division clones / copyists which is untrue - a recent quute I read described their sound as "dark, quirky pop", which is more accurate. They shared a record label with Joy Division and often supported them on tour. Alan Hempsall also stood in for Ian Curtis on several occasions, most notably @ the Derby Hall, Bury, as seen in the excellent "Control" film.
