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?

Did it cross the line or not?!

You were there – how did you see it? Was Tommy Langley’s goal-bound effort over the line or not? Some games from yesteryear retain “turning points” and this game was no exception in front of a crowd of just over 6,000. Some footage of the goals from Sunderland’s only ever visit to the Recreation Ground. Names like Tommy Langley, Steve Berry (played for both clubs … Continue reading Did it cross the line or not?!

Deep Space Rituals: 11

When I  mix electronic music. it’s like one big recipe book; the page is ‘space ambient’ but I;m looking for more succulent and filling ingredients. So I can fuse other styles, techno, bleeps. drops of acid here and there, atmospheric vibes. Number eleven in this series is yet another journey into the unknown. This mix is worth it for the Solar Fields track alone, an … Continue reading Deep Space Rituals: 11

Ascot United 1, Aldershot Town 4

An Aldershot Town XI produced an optimistic display and a comfortable win at Ascot United this afternoon.

Th’ Faith Healers and all things Too Pure

With Th’ Faith Healers remaining one of my finest loves and having recently been reunited with a long-lost Mouse On Mars number, I wanted to explore this Too Pure outfit in closer detail. I was aware that other stalwarts, PJ Harvey and Mclusky were on there but who else? That Mouse On Mars track was on this compo which I’ve just ordered from Discogs. Stereolab … Continue reading Th’ Faith Healers and all things Too Pure

Hits And Near Misses – a look back at those Confessions movies

In another stroll down Memory Lane, perhaps better named as Mammory Lane on this occasion, it’s a fond and retrospective nod to those old slapstick softcore movies that were on a par in the seventies with the Carry On films, though the Confessions quadcore had more revelations, full nudity for one thing (in the case of the ladies) but the success of these productions was … Continue reading Hits And Near Misses – a look back at those Confessions movies
