Kate Bush Loving Theresa May Means Brexit Will be Fine

Posted on December 1, 2016

When I heard Kate Bush sing "I'm Running up that, road, running up that hill, to vote for Neil Kinnock" I was convinced that this Queen of political pop would never waiver her support for the red flag. Even back in 1978, it was obvious she was a socialist as she sung her hit 'Wuthering Heights.' 'Michael Foot, it's me, Cathy Come home, I'm so cold! Let me in-a-your window to vote for you'. And what about her massive hit Babooshka....

Posted on October 7, 2016

I got chatting to a couple of chaps earlier this evening (one a school friend who I haven't spoken to since about 1984) about the band The Jam and how they split up when they were very young and so on.

David Bowie – What Did I Miss?

Posted on January 12, 2016

I don't know if you have noticed, but David Bowie died yesterday (aged 69) from a long and hideous illness that we all have had contact with directly, or indirectly, through our lives. Extraordinarily, Bowie managed to keep his inevitable demise a secret, denying an increasingly mawkish media and general public of information about his health, allowing him to not only die in peace, but complete an album that in line with deceased rock stars, ...
