Eastleigh 2-2 Aldershot Town

At this time of the year it’s often said that Wynter is upon us. And it came early as Eastleigh gave us an icy blast by equalising late on and snatching a share of the spoils at the Silver lake Stadium. A couple of glaring issues from last season are still haunting us: conceding needless free-kicks and not seeing games out. Chesterfield at home last … Continue reading Eastleigh 2-2 Aldershot Town

Dover 0-5 Aldershot: Match report

ALDERSHOT TOWN returned to winning ways in fine style tonight at the Crapple… sorry, small keyboard… Crabble Stadium. Pre-match, boss Danny Searle had said it was “imperative” that we got something from tonight’s game. So I thought a point was maybe the plan and even that would have been an improvement from Hartlepool and Sutton. But maybe he had something up his sleeve after all … Continue reading Dover 0-5 Aldershot: Match report

Aldershot Town 1 – 2 Sutton United

All a buzz for our first home match of the 20/21 season with the Shots Live Stream up and running, if there is radio commentary I’ll find it and update this post live via the Shits Twitter feed. Early questions of course to include WILL WE SEE MCCORMACK? and WILL ALFY START? I like the digital match programme idea. All football league and non leagues … Continue reading Aldershot Town 1 – 2 Sutton United

M100FS (Rock Version) – 98 – “The Saddest Song” – The Ataris

M100FS (Rock Edition): 99 – “Let Go” – Frou Frou

As we’re at the very beginning of this countdown, can I just say that the M100FS stands for My 100 Favourite Songs? Thank you! So Imogen Heap first came to my attention when somewhere, sometime I got to hear Hide And Seek. I was taken. I’d not really heard any voice/synth stuff since O Superman! Which I think may have been Laurie Anderson (but don’t … Continue reading M100FS (Rock Edition): 99 – “Let Go” – Frou Frou

Hartlepool United 2, Aldershot Town 1

Here we are again. An unusual start to the season with no fans allowed into open air stadia yet I can fly among 300 people in an aeroplane. Buffoon Boris. But then, if you employ a clown, you usually acquire a circus. Now we’ve got the live stream initiative plus Rob Worrall’s dulcets on BBC Radio Surrey. He will be at Victoria Park alongside Alan … Continue reading Hartlepool United 2, Aldershot Town 1

100 Favourite Songs (Rock Edition)

So this project finally comes to fruition although it’s not quite the end as there’s a pop version to be done too. I’m uncomfortable mixing everything together and after all, could you really have a chart where Savage Garden, for example, follow a Sonic Youth number?! Keane were another consideration as they could easily slide into the pop category. Originally the shortlist was over three … Continue reading 100 Favourite Songs (Rock Edition)

Who? Where? Why? – The Flying Lizards revisited

At least at the beginning, the Flying Lizards were not so much a band as an avant-garde experiment in Pop Music conducted by musical and visual artist David Cunningham and a rotating handful of experimental musicians. The Flying Lizards landed in the UK music charts in 1979 and were seen on TOTP performing a rather bizarre rendition of The Beatles song “Money”. They’d already had … Continue reading Who? Where? Why? – The Flying Lizards revisited
