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 : Peel Session (1981)

"Crispy Ambulance" were a Manchester post - punk New Wave outfit fo the late 70s, and stalwarts on the City live scene, appearing with all the notables of the day, including Joy Division, Buzzcocks & The Fall. Despite being signed to Factory Records, they never made it like many of their stable mates.However, they left behind a small though excellent body of work. Here is their only Peel Session, broadcast 19/1/81...


  1. Nice one! Thanks again for all the fine Slits.

  2. My pleasure. I'm enjoying digging all this cool stuff out - I'm a fan primarily, then a blogger...
