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 CHAMELEONS : San Francisco 16/10/02 (Semi - Acoustic)

1st in a short series of Chameleons posts. A great, criminally under-rated Manchester band, I've seen this lot over the years more times than I care to admit.  

 More Chameleons to follow soon...


  1. Thanx,can't wait for more. I only got to see them twice,both times it was fantastic. VERY under-rated band.

  2. Thanks Phil. The bad news - can't find my 2001 bootleg anywhere. Good news... found Lyon & Manchester bootlegs which will be posted soon. Lining up some Fall & Buzzcocks also...
