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

THE CHAMELEONS : Rock Garden, London, 29/4/82

Many thanks to Phil for sending me the link for this !!


  1. Thanx mein freund Mr.Ska- your blog made me to a chameleons fan. before i knew the name, maybe one song and the amazing cover art work - you bring me the cham. nearer to me and to my ears.AND NOW Herr Pauli is deep in love. i found great records,great songs and the chameleons runs on my mp3 player- thanx again.that`s blogin

    i`m glad: dzeko finds his form, im sure he brings joy.

    P.S. i love the dusty springfield song on your new player

  2. Thank you so much Skamanc !!

  3. Another Chameleons link removed. They must be actively scouring the net to stop their music being available.

  4. Yeah Stevo. Uncanny this... No more Chameleons or related stuff will go on this blog. I promote them more than they do themselves on their Official Site - how often does that get updated ? Or, when one takes the trouble of scanning & sending press material to their site, why is it ignored & never posted ? Fuck 'em.

  5. Obviously I have numerous Chameleons files that I can put onto a data disc for any interested parties...
