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 !

Sorry for the shite pics... Pretty decent Quadrophenia related compliation here. Nothing too obscure but a great listen all the same. CD is available free with the December Mojo magazine...


  1. nice little compliation...great stuff-thanx mein freund.

    quadrophenia to me - is a holy gral. the record came to me - long before the movie starts (thanks to my wonderful brother) the songs a part of my life. the who are a mainstay in my life.
    god save keith moon.
    all the best and a wonderful advent sunday.

    may the best team win ;-)

  2. Thanx for this mate, greeat stuff,

  3. Great compilation...
    Since I was a kid in Courbevoie, a grey suburb of Paris, back in '77, I was the only pseudo-mod of my college... I was a reduce from my 1st listening with magic keith in Who's next and got thrilled by the maximum r'n'b of Meaty,Beaty,Big&Bouncy.. So when i got through Quadrophenia, it was like getting to the peak of emotions, teen fears, exaltation etc... Bring the dream to the street, and soon you became a pseudo-mod but no lamie, no drugs... only power pop power for the rest of your life.
    life goes on! :-)
    PS: Now, i'm in django stuff... every thursday at Forte Prenestino, Rome "Djovedi Django, djam aperta, 100% acoustic", open-jam, unplugged, for the 101 years of Django Reinhardt.
    But it's only rock'n'roll and i like it
