RIP Steve Priest

We just haven't got a clue what to do...

I've been to see Borussia Monchengladbach and St Pauli play a couple of times, so I tend to look out for their results.

I am also in possession of a BMG scarf and a couple of St Pauli Turbonegro shirts so...I guess I count as a 'fan' of both.

Not the kind of information that I'd bandy about at The Den or anywhere else in SE London, of course  ::)

Looks great, Alan.

Is there another form of link other than Facebook? Only I could pass this on to a whole load of people who would love to drop in for a punky lockdown party but wouldn't be able to through what appears to be the media outlet of choice, me and Fred at least included.

Grateful for any ideas 👍

Spanish sport commentator, Liverpool and Rep of Ireland footballer Michael Robinson.

A very good player as I recall.

Can't see any gigs this year. They won't have any form of shot for it any time soon and I really can't see gatherings of large groups of people being allowed until such a vaccine becomes widely available.

Bollocks innit?  :(

I'm happy to go with the flow.

Not that I have a choice of course but I trust in those who do  :)

Roy Hudd, actor and comic, dies aged 83

Always a nice man to talk to about either Music Halls or Crystal Palace.
Did a very good turn as Bud Flanagan in the BBC comedy drama about the beginning of Dad's Army too.

Gentle humour from a gentleman.

Nice result tonight Shayne!

Thought you'd be pleased. Just for Millwall fans, obviously. Absolutely no Schadenfreude here...

Sounds promising!

I'd love to see BBC4 step up and use it for their prestigious Friday night Muso slot.

If they were to do such a thing, they'd have to put it out to local (specialist) cinemas first to maximize their return on any investment. I see C4 as being far more the likely sponsor.

With 40+ years of groundbreaking musical activities under their belts, it only seems right that hugely influential British art-rockers Wire should (finally!) receive the feature documentary treatment. And who better to give it to them than lifelong Wire megafan Graham Duff, the writer/director/actor best known for creating the Johnny Vegas cult favorite sitcom Ideal.

Duff and producer/co-director Malcolm Boyle have set about creating the definitive cinematic portrait of Wire, and the film, still in production is entitled People in a Film:

“We’ve already shot serious in-depth interviews with all the members of Wire, including original guitarist Bruce Gilbert who has given the movie his blessing. And we also filmed Wire writing and recording their new album at Rockfield Studios in Wales. It’s fascinating to see how the band work together. Lots of harmony, but quite a lot of friction too.

It seems ridiculous there hasn’t already been a documentary about them. So we want to make something which mirrors the strange and often surreal world of Wire. They really are a unique proposition. Their intensity is only matched by their often silly sense of humor. Who else but Wire would perform a gig inside a row of cubes? Or employ a support band to play their entire 1977 debut album in full, so that they don’t have to?”

Duff and Boyle are currently looking for investors to help them finish the movie. “We’ve just launched a crowdfunding project to fund the recording of the last batch of interviews and edit the final film.  One of the things we want to do is come out to the US and shoot interviews with Ian MacKaye and Henry Rollins.”

Spoke to Graham Duff (I've known him through Malcolm Boyle and Lucy O'Brien for a few years) just before Xmas and, during the course of the conversation, asked him how the documentary was coming on. He said that the film was in the can and that all it now needed was the post-production input from someone along the lines of C4, the BBC or similar to finish it off.

Looking forward to the result.

Monty Python legend Terry Jones, 77:

Very sad. And so soon after his old collaborator Neil Innes.

Two big losses.

Glad that I got to see both Innes and the Pythons live
