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

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. Ascot, who play in the Combined Counties League Premier Division, arranged a free admission game for 125 spectators via an online booking facility and spaces were soon snapped up. The conditions were warm but blustery at the Racecourse Ground (the second one I’ve visited this year!) and I … Continue reading Ascot United 1, Aldershot Town 4
