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 !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

JONATHAN RICHMAN : It's Time For.... (1986)

Yeah yeah.. I know... the 3rd post in less than an hour - what do you get if you cross insomnia, exhaustion, high blood sugar & a few tipples too many ??? Correct - Skamanc at this moment in time...
More Richman, courtesy of blog visitor Dave, who very kindly sent me a couple of cd's recently, in addition to his 4x taped gigs. Enjoy & please leave a comment thanking Dave...

This link is proving troublesome : sometimes it connects & doesn't at other times... Here is the direct sharecode :


This general malaise manifesting itself in lack of comment / leeching is starting to giving me the right hump again...  Please show Dave, Martin, Mark, Deco & lastly poor old Skamanc the slightest consideration...I thank you.


  1. the link is to the Dead Kennedys, not Jonathan Richman.

  2. Thanks for letting me know. The moral of the story is to not draft posts nor try to alter HTML when you're pissed up !! Link is now repaired & has the correct sharecode.

  3. Another Jonathan record I missed. I've loved his concerts over the years. A true original. Thanks so much for posting.

  4. link is dead !!!
