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 !

TELEVISION : Gigs (1975 - 78)

Please leave a comment or two for Dave...

Television - three gigs '75, '77 et '78 and bonus...


The time was when I curated the Television/Richard Hell archive with a few trusty mates. The megaupload massacre has wreaked vengeance, and much must be re-upped. For today, here ya go. Please thank them in passing; it's the least you can do for such a rare gift. Cheers, Dave Sez.
