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 !

100,000th Visitor Hit...

This has just been reached : the visitor(s) in question being blog regular Pauli (Germany) & an unidentified visitor from Leeds, UK.

As I said previously, I'll happily do a data dvd packed with files from the blog for the 100,000th visitor - it was either Pauli or the person from Leeds - to be fair they can both have one.

Just contact me via e-mail (address at top of main page) with your address details & a list of the files you'd like. Don't use the c-box, to keep your cntac t details safe.
