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 STRANGLERS : The Roundhouse, 6/11/77.

Excellent Stranglers gig from the Roundhouse in late '77. (Part of this gig later formed the Live X-Certificate album). The pic above is from this very gig, with Hugh Cornwell performing his physical accompaniment to "School Mam"... Many thanks to Dave Sez for his assistance with the recent Stranglers posts...
