Hall of Fame

April 12th, 2017 · No Comments · Music

I have been watching some Youtube clips of Yes getting inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which is a long overdue accolade for them, and a great shame it had to wait until after Chris Squire died. It is worth doing a search because there is plenty in there for the fans, […]

Where are they now?

July 15th, 2016 · Comments Off on Where are they now? · Music

We all know that the Pet Shop Boys are still doing their thing, but I wonder what their co-stars in this video are up to now?  They will all be into their late 20s now, which would make me feel old, if I didn’t already. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this […]

If you look at the Wikipedia page for Assemblies of God you will find this wonderful paragraph: The Assemblies of God should not be confused with the Assemblies of God International Fellowship, the International Assemblies of God Fellowship, and the Independent Assemblies of God International, all of which are Pentecostal denominations. Also not to be […]

Not such grand designs

August 17th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Life

On the way home from having lunch in town on Friday we popped into B&Q for a new toilet seat and came out with more than we expected because they were getting rid of some firesat ridiculous prices. I think it was old stock of a discontinued product line. When we got home I decided […]

Yet another bass prodigy

September 5th, 2013 · Comments Off on Yet another bass prodigy · Music

I was doing a bit of channel-surfing tonight and happened upon a programme on Sky Arts which has musicians playing live sessions in a studio. I think it is called something like the Basement Sessions. When I got to it it was halfway through a song by somebody I didn’t know and I might have […]

The Clarkson incident

December 1st, 2011 · Comments Off on The Clarkson incident · Life

I may not like what Clarkson said yesterday, “with his outrageously politically incorrect opinions which he has for money” but I can hardly complain about it – last year I absolutely cracked up when I saw Stewart Lee in Horsham and he did this routine. Remember “it’s just a joke, like on Top Gear” You need […]

Mistaken identity

March 15th, 2011 · Comments Off on Mistaken identity · Life

Today the BBC website has a story of police idiocy on a par with when the Irish police had Prawo Jazdy at the top of their most-wanted list. Basically, the police an address more than 40 times in 18 months by mistake.  It seems they were getting calls to a house in Repton Grove but […]

The perils of the Bruce Willis vest in middle age

December 14th, 2010 · Comments Off on The perils of the Bruce Willis vest in middle age · Music

Let me say straight off that I enjoy Elmer Food Beat enormously, and was overjoyed to see that they returned to the stage in recent years even if it was just to relive past glories rather then produce anything new.  All I will say is that perhaps the singer might have considered not wearing the […]
