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 JAM : Music Machine December 1978

Couldn't find a Jam ad for the venue but anyway...
Camden Town venue the Music Machine is now called Koko (search the blog for a Weller gig recorded there...). Back in December 1978 it was the venue of a Jam gig that is credited with playing a large part in the Mod Revival the following year...

Excellent artwork is from a data dvd that I received - the usual thanks to the original artist!!
