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 !

BLUEBEAT 45's Volume 18

More Ska from Paul's fantastic ongoing series!!

Apologies for the recent lack of blog activity... work is going badly, (ie not as described & very badly organised) plus I'm (again) on the crap Tmobile wireless. As such, my downloading is limited to almost nothing, plus I can't access (or even see!!) the c-box...

In fact, as of now, I'm going back to my old job - better the devil you know & all that. Least it will help me through another, final year of college then we'll see...


  1. Thanks for the upload. Much appreciated.


  2. Hi Buddy Sorry to here the job did not work out for you. Thanks for all your uploads.

  3. Bad luck mate but things always happen for a reason and generally always end up working out ok.
    You'll be right.
    regards Rod in Oz.

    i agree rodd word`s(....things always happen...)
    all the best for you mein freund
    your`s pauli

  5. Thanks for all the messages. It's not a major hassle - least I'm lucky enough to have a post to fall back on. Just pissed off with the situation - the new job paid well but was not a real electrician post - more of a fitter really.

    Also it was badly organised - how can I fit & wire up reverse monitors to vans when essential items kept running out ? (eg looms, brackets &, finally, the feckin cameras themselves...)

  6. Many Many Thanks For Your Latest Posts Skamanc !!!
    All Great Stuff !!!
    As For The Job,Don t Worry Mate,You Know Life s An Adorable Bitch !!!!
    Keep Up Your Great Blog.

  7. WoW!
    Another fantastic volume!

  8. Cheers everyone for the support & comments.

    More Bluebeat to come Exeter !

  9. Many many thanks, London
