I’ll start with Lone Justice and Wheels.
Me and the better half own a couple of buy to let houses two doors down from us and this weekend we are hosting a dinner party for two young couples in their 20s who have rented from us for the last 6 months and look like staying for a long time (we are nice landlords!).
What should we do for entertainment I was asked. No problem leave it to me I said…kids these days love vinyl.
Off to Amazon to buy a £100 bluetooth turntable i can link to my sound bar near the TV and happy days will follow as i now have an excuse to get all the old vinlys down from the loft as I become an “old git of wonder” on Saturday night for a captive audience who WILL listen (one months notice after the contracts run out!!).
I have a vast Waterboys collection to impress them with. Where should I start?
I propose “Rags”.
I have no expectations. But just having discovered my Genesis early period box set in the loft whilst on a company call I might reacquaint myself with that and the Led Zep CD/DVD reunion set from whenever that was released, also on the desk.
These are wishes rather than reality!
Lone Justice from 1985.
I went out and ordered their debut album the next day on this performance and it was a good decision!
The Pfizer/Flynn judgement today doesn’t show the industry in a good light.
I have worked in and around this industry for most of my career and this does not represent the values or the ethos of those that work within it in my opinion.
The music, apart from the hit singles, never did it for me and I remember the ridicule he had as a pilot in the 1980s.
He is a nice bloke, the wife is a bit weird though.
1970s – my experience of death as my pet rabbit died. Sad Cafe were a sub standard 10cc IMHO but sill great.
1980s – Kayleigh by Marillion. Truly a great song.
1990s – REM Losing My Religion by REM. Being jilted three weeks before a planned weeding hurt deep. This song helped me recover.
1990s – I am allowed two in the 1990s. Meeting my current love and mother to my two kids – Marillion again. No one Can Take you Away From Me,
That looks like a must see!
I know he did many great parts in his life but for me Sunday afternoons as a kid were The Protectors.
I love it and especially Matte Kudasai.
If you are into stone circles and Neolithic history and want to see a new side to Julian Cope from your perceived view of him then watch this.
It is marvellous!
Bargepole’s post below got me thinking on this great unanswered conundrum!
Saxon epitomise the true spirit of NWOBHM.

I had completely forgotten about Dee c. Lee’s massive hit.
Comparing the new Bruno Mars video to Wham’s Club Tropicana brought her name up in the credits of the second video.
The joys of re-discovery.
Jimmy Page/Led Zeppelin – Stairway To Heaven David Gilmour/ Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb Don Felder and Joe Walsh/Eagles – Hotel California Allen Collins/Lynyrd Skynyrd – Freebird Jimi Hendrix/The Jimi Hendrix Experience – All Along The Watchtower Eddie Van Halen/Van Halen – Eruption Brian May/Queen – Killer Queen Slash/GN’R – Sweet Child Of Mine Prince/Prince And The Revolution – Purple Rain Tony Iommi/Black Sabbath – Paranoid
We are 4-0 down after the first morning which is not good.
For a bit of light relief, ahead of the expectation of a reverse whitewash in the afternoon, enjoy this video from the last day of practice.
Got my Janic Gers circa Gillan band sorted.
Today I was made aware of a work colleague in my new job whose name is Joe Apathy.
We have an Indian office so I may have lost some context but it still made me smile.
Rush at their progtastic best.
I love this band!!!!
You have gotta love a bit of Loverboy!

I have just watched the last episode of this on Amazon tonight and it is the best hour of TV I have seen all year.
A 10 episode series I have watched on and off over the Summer but bloody hell the finale is amazing.
Enjoy if you can get it!
I start a new job tomorrow and the blurb I have been sent tells me that office attire when not seeing clients is Smart Casual. I will wear a business suit without a tie,
What do you do with description?
