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 FACES : Paris Theatre, London, 1971 & 1973 (BBC)

Formed from the ashes of the Small Faces, when Ronnie Lane, Ian MacLagan & Kenney Jones joined forces with Ron Wood & Rod Stewart. (It took, therefore, two men to replace Steve Marriott !!) The result ? One of the hardest working (& drinking) acts of the 70s and an excellent outfit to boot. This material was recorded live @ London's Paris Theatre on May the 13th 1971 & January the 4th 1973. (The venue for many of this era's live bootlegs, most from the BBC).



Dedicated to fellow Faces fans Martin, Pauli & me old mucker Steve Richardson (Whitefield M45).

Plus special thanks to Alan Pardew & Mick McCarthy (for inspiring their teams to draw with Arsenal, beat Shitey Stretford Celtic / Man Yoo &, in the process, do City a BIG favour). 


  1. it`s only rock`n`roll...but we like it.....
    great post today. oh the old rod stewart-he was a cool guy - too bad-rod: to retire early !
    no fight today-fuck u hsv and your fuckin new grass pitch-real men loves mud.....
    have a lazy sunday and the best thing:Mr.Ska is
    B ! A ! C ! K !
    What`s up with mr.dzeko? in the bundesliga every match- he makes his goal !in the paper, he said the premier league is hard and full of fight - hey ! welcome in football`s homeland.
    but i`m sure he turn the corner

  2. Dzeko will come good. He's so far scored only one goal (vs Notts County in the FA Cup), but he will find the net over the season. He looks a bit unfit, probably due to the Bundesliga Winter Break, but again, will be okay.

  3. i always find he is a really good player. unfit,winterbreak yes it is the bundesliga :-)
    cheers my freund
