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 !

DVD Sale... Ska & Motor Vehicle Stuff

Thanks to Phil for this new cover...

The appeal for a new lap top goes on, though thanks to everyone who has bought dvd's to date...

I am hoping to sell a few copies of the Dance Craze film on DVD format (which it has never officially been released on). The VHS tape is, of course, long deleted, and these have been on e-bay for a while.

I am currently in dispute with e-bay & need to directly sell a few units to replace my old PC, which is dying fast and is taking longer & longer to perform even the mos basic task. For example, logging on to the net is about 30mins now, and an average post on the blog takes about 2 hours.

I am after a cheap & cheerful, half decent laptop and so am selling copies of Dance Craze, including UK postage, for a fiver.

I also have a unique, professional remaster of Dance Craze, with new graphics, black white sections & lead ins & outs between tracks. This is also a fiver, though I will do both for £9.00 again inclusive of UK postage.

Donations to the blog are of course still most welcome...

Payment can be made via Paypal, to the usual blog address :




I hate to make the blog look like a market place, but I need a "new" PC asap as I can't keep relying on the library, and they're only open "sensible" hours.. Plus, if I get one, I can make good use of the free wifi in McDonalds etc to keep the blog rolling along !!

The DVD is a good quality copy & is boxed with a basic label & sleeve. If you buy both there is one box, with the 2nd disc in a clear slip sleeve inside the box...

I am also selling copies of Autodata, which is well known to any one in the vehicle trade. This covers the majority of vehicles on the UK roads & is essential for the vehicle spark & mechanic both amateur & professional. Includes all manufacturers' data & diagrams etc. these are £15 though an official copy would be hundreds of £ ( as well as the monthly upgrade fee).

In addition to these, I have Technical Service Manuals on cd/ dvd-r for Ford, Vauxhall and BMW (including Mini). These discs are a fiver each or 3 for £10

Though I didn't tell you this, all the above could be copied, duplicates burned & re - sold...

I am starting to sound like Del Boy trotter here, but every penny coming into the blog will be a big help in solving the computer problems I am experiencing. Ironically, I have turned down some overtime @ work in order to visit the library to use the computers...


  1. Well, I'm going ta bleedin' comment if no-one else does .. keep it up for us all, skamanc! Not looking for ska DVDs (but have "Election Night Specials", semi-official bootleg, 4th May 1979 - Maggie's big night, to offer if you haven't got it). Let me know by email, Dave Sez.

  2. I want the technical manual for my car(ford). I was searching everywhere for a DVD or CD and luckily found your post. Can i have these by placing an online order?

  3. An online order is most welcome Caroline. I can be contacted @ waltjabsco@hotmail.com regarding this. It's also the paypal address if making any payment. Regards, Skamanc.
