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

Sawdust Caesars 1978 - 82 : '79 Mod Compilation (Various Artists)

The usual "Thanks" to Martin Smith...
Generic '79 Compilation with some well known names balanced by the more obscure. Even Phil Daniels is on here...Feelgoods buffs will note Lew Lewis' "Lucky Seven", the track that led to Wilko quitting during the "Sneakin Suspicion" recording sessions as he wanted the LP to include his own song "Paradise"...
We are the Mods...
