On a roll very early this morning.
Probably fall a sleep early tonight. :smt015
Like Keith said you were on a roll - perhaps you had better have a snooze Jim ......... :smt036

My daughter Faye is due our first grandchild in May, and I’ve been at her house preparing the nursery room for her, so it’s been early starts. I should be finished today and back to normal tomorrow.... I hope :smt023

Vinyl released 2020 - Keith and I supped a few pints with Robert Vincent when we seen him live at 81 Renshaw Street Liverpool, he was supporting Ethan Johns. He’s a great bloke and this is a great album, one of the best Americana albums released last year. Which isn’t bad as he’s a fellow scouser. 8)

In this town you've got to see their light
In this town you've got help them fight
In this town you've got to own their pain
In this town you feel


If you ever visit Liverpool 81 Renshaw is the place. You can have a pint, eat and buy records and listen to live bands. They have a great selection of new, indie and used albums and the ale and food is good. :smt023

Said it was coming down
Said it hadn't happened in over thirty years
But it was laying on the ground

Nice shot of Mike Peters, did you take it?

No I didn’t take it Richard, i missed him as I was away on holiday. You regularly get artists dropping in to promote their albums and do a few acoustic songs off it. Here’s me and Keith with the great Sid Griffin from the Long Ryders and Coal Porters at his gig there. He was on with the excellent Peter Case. 8)

Haven’t heard their stuff yet Keith, but they are getting rave reviews. 8)
Best of the year so far imho. I picked it up on the reviews and bought it after test driving it on Qobuz.

Michelle Shocked - Short Sharp Shocked (1988)

The first vinyl album I’ve played this month!

That’s a great photograph of her on the sleeve, taken during a protest in San Francisco in 1984. The photograph was more closely cropped for subsequent releases. She has suffered recently because she chose to express her homophobic views publicly.

A great venue and night that Jim, Ethan John and Robert Vincent another we had there. A old school mate of mine (Clive, Jim you met when we went to the Prowsie christmas show) took Mike to meet Prowsie and McNabb at 81 Renshaw a few years back and the photo is the result. Another result was McNabb playing the Gathering in Llandudno.
