Fifteen years ago today Joe Strummer passed on. Here is a You Tube post dedicated to him, and one of the songs that followed Joe throughout the years. “Junco Partner” is an American blues song first recorded by James Waynes in 1951. It has been recorded and revised by many other artists over several decades, […]

Charles Manson – Side A Charles Manson – Side B The true identity of Lance Fairweather has puzzled Mansonist scholars for years and probably never will be revealed. Apparently, the man valued his anonymity as much as his life, for reasons that will become obvious from the following account. We do know that he was […]

The Apostles Side Demolition Company Side ‘Cartography’ The first side of this cassette tape features The Apostles. To be more specific, for this release many of the songs were written, performed with various instruments and recorded on a four track recorder by Dave Fanning. So in effect it is pretty much Dave Fannings ‘solo’ project. […]

Necro 1983 I’m really chuffed that Tim, the old drummer of Necro, found an old C90 cassette tape and a clutch of photographs in a box in his house sometime ago… To me, this stuff is gold dust! A crystal clear recording of the band playing the ‘slower’ three piece line up set without interruption, […]

Below are snippets of memories for two gigs from Tristian ‘Stringy’ Carter. Crass at […]
