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 !

JOHN COOPER CLARKE : Zip Style Method + 1982 Peel Session

Another cracker I picked up for pennies recently. I really should mention Vinyl Exchange - a long running shop on Oldham St in cenral Manchester. Well worth a visit...

I've blogged this 1982 album before though this is a remastered copy with a bonus 1982 Peel Session tagged on.

REPOSTED SHARECODE : 4/5/11... Now available again for download.

For my mucker Richard Kenyon - percussionist extraordinaire.
