Zaine Griff

July 13th, 2007 · Comments Off on Zaine Griff · Music

Before tonight I had never heard what Zaine Griff sounded like, and on a whim I did a search, and turned up this little encapsulation of the 80s. The irony is that Zaine Griff will always remind me of the 70s When I was at school my friend Barry (his name wasn’t Barry. Thats just […]

I got a postcard the other day about a concert up in London next week.  Spizzenergi are playing at the Luminaire, 311 Kilburn High Road.  The angle for this one (Spizz always likes to have an angle) is the whole climate change thing. The postcard states that Spizzenergi are "greener than Sting, Phil Collins, U2, […]

It must be weeks since I last featured a blatant plug for Spizzenergi or anything else Spizz-related, so here is a link to his new venture – an experiment with podcasts. I listened to the first one and enjoyed hearing some music which was new to me (always a pleasure). i expect the new one […]

Links from Tories

September 16th, 2006 · 3 Comments · Politics, Technology

I have found a couple of links or references to my little site from Tories. One is generating a few visits, and one could generate a lot more in the future. The first is from Adam Brown. Sorry, I mean Adam G Brown – he seems very insistent on the G. Adam is a councillor […]

Free music!

September 13th, 2006 · 4 Comments · Music

There has been a bit of a stir caused by a new music site called eMusic which is supposed to compete with Apple's iTunes site.  Having seen sites like Napster, Wippit, Coke music and all the rest come along and fail to make a dent I am usually resistant to the hype, but I thought […]

Testing 442

June 11th, 2006 · Comments Off on Testing 442 · Music

Lets see if this works… Hmmm… Seems to work OK, but what a lot of hoops to jump through! I had to deactivate the WYSIWYG editing plugin AND create the post in Internet Explorer – for some reason it would not work properly in Firefox. I think I shall push my luck and try to […]

4-4-2 OK

June 10th, 2006 · Comments Off on 4-4-2 OK · Music

This video is even more topical after today’s unfortunate experience with 4-4-1-1 (What was Sven playing at? Between his substitutions and the Mexican ref’s bizarre decisions we were lucky to get a result.) What I want to know is why I can’t just post the code from YouTube to embed the video on here… it […]

We Are The England

June 4th, 2006 · 1 Comment · Music

I can't work out how to embed a YouTube video in WordPress, so I shall have to make do with an old-fashioned link to the video for We Are The England – the 2006 World Cup song by Spizzenergi. Do have a look: its a very catchy song. The video has been online for a […]

Dull Council Meeting

April 14th, 2006 · Comments Off on Dull Council Meeting · Politics

I know council meetings are supposed to be dull, but last night's was extremely pedestrian compared to the last one I went to.  By the end of it I really wished I had gone to see Spizzenergi at the 100 Club instead. (Interesting fact – since leaving the council I have been to more Spizzenergi […]
