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 : Witchwood (Official Bootleg) 2000.

Here's a gig I was lucky enough to be at : The Witchwood, Ashton Under Lyne in May 2000. Cleverly "bootlegged" by the Chameleons themselves. I've got this somewhere, along with the tickets from their December 2001 Middleton gig (now that's one I'd like to have on the blog...) Many thanks to Vincent (France) for the files. I've added some artwork to the file, so download & enjoy...
