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 !

DANCE CRAZE : The Best Of British SKA...LIVE!

Here is all its glory is the Dance Craze movie, which I have had numerous requests for over the past couple of years. Some great footage on here & an essential document of the times...

I apologise again for the lack of blog activity recently - still no pc access @ home regretfully, plus I have had to buy a new car so that's the computer savings spent unfiortunately. Still, enjoy the clips & leave a comment or three !!

For Dean & Lee plus all 2 Tone fans EVERYWHERE !!
