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 PRISONERS : Rotherham Assembly Rooms, 30/8/85.

MASSIVE thanks to Josechu Modforever for sending me this gem. He says its an mp3 rip from a cassette, so the sound ain't brilliant, but is certainly listenable.



For all out there in Blogland & all Prisoners fans, especially Jonny, Rodd & Nicola...


  1. another fantastic gem. oh my god i love the prisoners. a fucking great band.
    thank u skamanch and Josechu.
    i like the cassette sound-it reminds me of the good old times-far away from mp3,digital,hd-and we was so young.......
    and yes! greetings to rodd, jonny and nicola(hey nicola italia is berlusconi free)
    have a great day

  2. Hi to everybody and thanks Skamanc & Josechu for this great Xmas present.
    Yes Herr Pauli, Italia is not exactly berlusconi free, he still has a lot of influence and economical power. Also economical problems are still there. Anyway, definitely a step into the right direction , we are all now a bit more proud of being italian (with berlusconi to represent italy I was very embarassed of being italian). He should also give back the money he (and his companies) have stolen to italians...
    to all the blog readers (and writers), best wishes for a merry Christmas and a Great 2012 !!

  3. Thanx for some more Prisoners guys. Merry Xmas to all Prisoners fans everywhere. I should have some more tapes of Medway sounds for you guys in the new year. Watch this blog.
    regards Rodd in Oz.

  4. Thanks to each of you lads for the support you've shown the blog.

    Pauli - there'll be something for you in the mail New Year.

    Nicola - Amen to that.

    Rodd - thanks again mate & will look forward to the Medway stuff.

    A Happy Xmas & great 2012 for all !
