A long drought of gig-going (my first this year!) ended on Saturday when I went to see The Outcasts at The Amersham Arms, New Cross. Having heard very little material by them, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Opening with a cover version (1969) didn't bode well, but it was all good from then on. Decent punk/punkabilly. Didn't know any of the songs but me and a reasonable sized audience enjoyed it.

Would definitely go again

Thank you TUTs. See you at a gig soon as long as I can still climb on stage...

Bounce on. With a pogo stick, of course.

Saw them just the once, at The Electric Ballroom in October '79. I don't think that 'Mirror In The Bathroom' had been released by then. They were really good though.

Looking inescapable, isn't it. Just got to keep plugging away, Fred.

Elsewhere...I was driving in to work yesterday and, along a narrow-ish lane in Bromley, spotted 3 blokes in tracksuits jogging, 2 on the pavement and a third in the road alongside. As I got closer, I was expecting the guy in the road to get onto the pavement. He did not. Miffed at having to swerve a bit to avoid the jogger, I gave him a bit of a 'look' as I drove past...only to realise I'd just avoided running over Millwall manager/legend Neil Harris!

Hang on a minute...

YES! The mighty Cyprus stuffed San Marino 5-0! Scotland are OFF the bottom of the table!








Has a more futile clutch at the weakest of staws ever been made?

No.

Sorry for my tardiness in replying. It's just that checking the whole 30yr history of the internet to make sure that yours was the most pathetic took a while.

I haven't read a newspaper for nearly 20 years so this is, quite literally, news to me

I suppose a change of allegiance to North Ferriby United is out of the question...

Otherwise, it's not been your best season Fred, has it?

Dick Dale: 'King of Surf Rock' guitarist dies aged 81

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-47606592

I was lucky enough to see him in Brighton back in the 90's and have a chat with him about guitars and his playing style - lovely man. I'll miss him.  :(

Of course, he'll probably be most remembered for the Pulp Fiction link:

Got to see him play at the John Peel-hosted Meltdown Festival way back when. Wandered out into the audience (Dale, not me obviously) on a thousand yards of curly lead, playing 'Misirlou'. Jarvis Cocker, sitting directly in front of me, was suitably impressed.

RIP Dick.

Nope.

Spiral Scratch? Gone. Never Mind The Bollocks? Likewise. Damned Don't Cry Wolf on pink vinyl? Disappeared. Rattus & No More Heroes? No more.

I could go on, but it just makes ya sadder.

I asked him how he allowed it to happen. To be fair, he did have a bit of a point when he said he didn't think he'd live much past 30 and certainly didn't think such records would be treasured in the future, so kind of let his kids get away with vinyl genocide.

Meh.

Sadly, no.

My bro and I, having similar taste in music, would take it in turn to buy whatever caught our fancy. He bought CTRSWTA.

When I  moved out of our flat (as he had gotten married with a sprog on the way) we decided that it would be fairest that I only took with me what I'd actually bought...which left the aforementioned valuable vinyl at the mercy of my brother's kids.

They systematically destroyed his entire collection.

Luckily, I bought the singles, which I still have.

Note to 15 yr old self:

Nick this lp from your brother.  He will, in just a few years time, allow his children to destroy it.

Your theft will be appreciated forever.

Guess who owns the original of the cover painting from "The Crack"...

https://www.udiscovermusic.com/stories/henry-rollins-the-ruts-the-crack-artwork/

Quote
“When I met the guys I had a million questions waiting to leap like a cobra from a basket,” Rollins elaborates. “One of those questions was about The Crack’s artwork. Segs told me it was this amazing four feet by four canvas and that John Howard basically rolled it up and took it from England. He moved to New York and sold it to an art collector in the Upper East Side.”

Sometime later, when Segs visited Rollins in LA and Rollins showed the bassist his collection of rare Ruts memorabilia, The Crack’s artwork again came up in conversation.

“Segs said, ‘Henry, you’re the collector, you should really have the artwork,’” he says. “So I said, gamely, ‘So you’re putting me on mission?’ He says, ‘OK, Rollins, go get it.’ So I was dispatched to go into art-acquisition mode.”

Read this a couple of days ago.

Good that it's in the possession of a proper fan
