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 !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

THE BUZZCOCKS + HOWARD DEVOTO : Manchester O2 Apollo 25/5/12

As many regulars & visitors will be aware, I am a huge fan of the modern day genius that is Howard Devoto. As such, I have pinched this file from the link on Dave's recent Magazine Megapost and posted it directly on the blog.

Here is Disc 3, where we see the original Buzzcocks line up including Devoto after a thirty odd years hiatus. This even features John Maher on drums, who is now a big name on the custom VW scene in Manchester.

I've got a soft spot for the Buzzcocks, but just had an urge to post the "reunion" disc. The link on the megapost is the source for the previous 2x discs...


  1. Good choice skamanc - always follow your urges, particularly if it involves Devoto! Cheers, Dave Sez.

  2. I accept your wisdom 100% Dave !!!
