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 !

  6. Glad you all liked it, a real classic which hadn't surfaced before - here thanks to Adrian's Stranglers blog at auralsculptors.blogspot.com which besides masses of Stranglers also includes a great series of "Best of 20 gigs from 1980" of which this was one. Really worth checking out - and don't forget to thank him in passing! By the way, Adrian puts up his gifts in FLAC and mp3 @ 192; for best quality (which this one is definitely worth), best to go and get the FLACs and convert them (with dbPoweramp etc) to mp3 @ 320 rather than take his 192s ... see here:

    Cheers, Dave Sez.
