There’s a teeny bit of my town that just resembles 1986 Why do I say that? Well, in 1986 you had a group like Level 42 who represented a nice clean way of living. Level 42 were…a Ford Fiesta XR2 or a Ford Escort XR3i. They were a house on a modern estate at the […]
Found whilst looking for something else.
It’s a thing for sure that when I was once zooming up the M40 to Birmingham for a Vehicle Derek rehearsal and blasting Phenomenon by UFO on the tape deck, that it got to the point in “Rock Bottom”, around about 4.23 where the 19 year old Michael Schenker’s guitar solo reaches peak-pant-weeing-ecstasy and I […]
Back when I lived in East Oxford and could ride my bike to work I developed a special game to play on my commute. It was called Totality. It actually began in about 1986 back in Boston, Lincolnshire when one of my brothers came home once from his girlfriend’s house and told me that he […]
My mate gave me a task on Facebook: choose 10 vinyl albums that greatly influenced my taste in music. One album per day for ten consecutive days. No explanations, no reviews, just album covers. So far I have done three in the last three weeks and…so…well I am not really sticking to the rules in […]
Made for my magazine, “Veeb” sometime in 1994.

The Ladybird books factory Crazy by Icehouse Auf Wiedersehen Pet Walking home down Robin Hood’s Walk A Walk In The Black Forest Wytham Woods in autumn ’95 Cherry boiled sweets As I put this post together it seemed silly to just list these […]
It’s raining and I have the day off work. I am trying to make sense of this lot. I always knew I “kept all my tapes” but it has been a long time since I have dealt with them and making sense of all of these cassettes is quite something. There is the content for […]
What follows is really some very random thoughts that are an extension to series 3 episode 4 of Photo Chat Vlog. I said in that episode that I didn’t have a favorite picture of the three that I discussed, but on reflection I only realized long after I had finished the recording and put the […]
Round about now, 4 years ago, regardless of the difference in time, I was descending from the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in New Zealand and knew nothing of so many of the things that make up my life right now. On a cold, rainy afternoon where it seems as though nothing ever happens, this is a […]
2009 was a significant year for me in many ways, but it was ten years ago today at about this time in the afternoon (4.30pm) on the 12th of March that my dad flew away and left the earth after a short bout of pneumonia and a much longer struggle with dementia. I never knew either […]
