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 !

THE ADVERTS : Marquee, 27/7/78.

You can never have too many Adverts bootlegs... here's a set from the Marquee, July 27th 1978. (Cue Homer Simpson drooling type voice..."Mmmmmm... Gaye Advert & an Gibson EB0...mmm").



  1. WONDERFUL stuff for the last day of november.

    and the right stuff for our friend martin.

    thanx and all the best

    greetings from freezing germany
    yours herr pauli

  2. Thanks Skamanc,Great Stuff !!!

  3. What a coincidence, I am going to see Tim Smith live in London next Fri and will give him a copy of the gig.

    Thank you so much for posting and sharing this show, The Adverts were one of the best bands from the punk era but quickly moved on musically after the first album. Tim was ready to move on and saw that punk never going to last forever.

    Great stuff, many thanks
