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

Very interesting file that's been sitting on a cd for a while...here's Subway Sect live in Paris April 77, The Slits from Erics, Liverpool (also 1977) and the two acts together at The California Ballroom, Dunstable, with a version of the Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray". (Also played live by Joy Division - see "Still" post).

I'm in danger of heading for another 20+ hour day - as such, I'm making Friday's post a couple of hours early. This is dedicated to The Slits' Ari Up who, I've just found out, died yesterday.


  1. very sad,Ari up
    never forget
    long live the slits

  2. Have a look through the blog for loads more Slits files. (search box is at the top of the main page).
