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 !

2nd in the new Kronenbourg ad series (Motorhead / Ace of Spades being the first). Wonder who's next up ? Don't sup the stuff myself - a few pints & I can have a fight in an empty room...

For Paul Baily - sincere thanks for the latest batch of (replacement) discs. A true gent & friend of this blog.

THE PRISONERS : Cricketers, Kennington, 9/9/85.

Live tape from regular haunt the Cricketers Pub, Kennington, South London. (Seen Wilko Johnson there many times during my years working down there). Another gem courtesy of Rodd from Oz.

Apologies for the lack of updating recently. The good news is that I've finally got a full time job (Engine World in Bolton, starting Monday 20th), but the downside being less time for the blog. Lack of c-box activity on my part is down to being on Tmobile, again !!

As always, thanks for the fantastic support - keep the files & comments coming please.
