There’s been a huge response for Best Live Albums, a new concept in best live albuming that should be with us in the spring. At the time of writing over fifty contributors and to get fair, they couldn’t have done it without me. So in this article you will find an A To Z of all titles sent in so far along with the contributor’s … Continue reading #BestLiveAlbums
Firstly a big thank you 🙏 to all those on Twitter who have submitted entries for what should be an intriguing journey to determine WHICH Mozza song proves to be the most-loved. As you should have seen by now, each contributor has been allocated a country to give the tournament the feel of a cup competition. I’ve made a provisional FIRST ROUND DRAW which you … Continue reading World Cup Of Morrissey
So after our astonishing (and yes it was astonishing having lost the previous three games), over Southend I’ve decided that Solihull is a ground that I will finally get to tick off. “Over the moors, take me to the moors” is an affectionate nod to The Smiths’ Suffer Little Children which I’m sure you all know and if you don’t then you’re simply too young. … Continue reading Over the moors. Take me to the moors.
This diary entry will detail (thankfully) things other than the drubbing handed down to us by basement boys Torquay. Because as bad as that was, I never got to see the game having been left stranded at Upwey station because of South West Trains late service meant I missed my first connection. I then discovered that the next train to Castle Cary was two and … Continue reading Torquay United 6-1 Aldershot Town
SATURDAY 15 OCTOBER 2022 Chelmsford City FCMelbourne Community StadiumCapacity: 3,065 (Seats 1,311)Address: Salerno Way, Chelmsford, CM1 2EH £56 OPDR Almost a four-hour journey for me but I am planning on going for two reasons: one is it’s another ground to tick and two, to savour the embarrassment of another first round FA Cup exit by way of an underling. It looks like a long walk or a … Continue reading Shots @ Chelmsford City
MONDAY, 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2022 My first visit (incredibly) to Meadow Lane. Been to the City Ground a number of times in the past. Train tickets ✔️ Accomodation ✔️ Match ticket ✔️ Paid for match ticket over the phone and it’s to be collected at the hut behind the Jimmy Sirrell Stand. ACCOMODATION Hotel? Not Trivago. I’ve found Booking.com to be the best for sourcing the … Continue reading Notts County (A) – Matchday Post
I’m sure I speak for most when I say we are continually fed up, when on public transport, the constant sound of people playing smartphones (often at full volume) when we are forced to hear music (questionable these days IMO) and inane phone conversations. It’s unnecessary (get some earphones for £10), discourteous (we really don’t want to hear that) and disrespectful (this really impairs the … Continue reading We don’t want to hear that!
When we think of this tag it’s a far more broader church isn’t it. Interestingly, while researching this, in many lists online, Love Will Tear Us Apart didn’t feature at all though I’d consider it fits the bill. I’ll recognise it as a classic but won’t be nominating it as my ten will feature personal favourites. And I hope you will too! In fact the … Continue reading PunkAndNewWaveClassics
So the title of this project comes from a Nanci Griffith album but the idea is right there on Twitter in the form of #FemaleVoices. which will have been started by someone, somewhere and a whole bunch of people will post a song per day. At first, though I could easily fill thirty one days in July, I thought about skipping it owing to time … Continue reading Other Voices
