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 !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

The Blog Is Dead... Long Live The Blog...

As manu of you will now be aware, every file you click on is now marked illegal. This is because Rapidshare have decided that I have contravened copyright, and closed down my account, in the process destroying just over 3 1/2 years of accrued / saved files & sharecodes. I have appealed, though with no joy. The rotten feckers....

I have left this a few days as I was debating the best course of action, given that I need to move home very quickly as things have deteriorated so badly on the home &  financial fronts.

After much thought, all I can do is keep the blog going, though you will need to bear with me for a while. I have started to re-upload some material, though obviously,. 3+ years of music is a massive undertaking. 95% of the files are safe on my hard drive(s) though they will onviously need to be gradually reuploaded again.

I may consider reuploading some of the more popular downloads first, as well as bringing in new files not sen on the blog before. Any help will be gratefully received....

Bless you all, Skamanc, Jan 2013.
