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 SPECIALS : Hyde Park August 2012


No doubt I'll have the bootleg in due course...New Order I can handle, but why oh why are the mighty Specials only on the support bill to those Brit pop wankers ???


  1. got my tickets the other day via a presale link from BT.only thing though the only option ticketmaster give you to get the tickets is to print them yourself! but get this the bastards charge you £3.50 to print your own feckin tickets on top of the £6.50 admin charge.but i had to do it,i couldnt miss seeing the specials in london now could i?my only concern with the bill is that i hope the specials are on just before blur and not before new order.are you going?

  2. talking of specials boots mate,you havent found one of their gig at the albert hall last year by any chance please?cheers skamanc!

  3. I have it on good authority that The Specials are due on at 8pm and will play an hour long set. I agree with you, however, New Order are good but why the hell are a band with the calibre and longevity of The Specials supporting a 90's band like Blur?....someone has got this very wrong!!!
