james wing

making my way through the west wing at the moment. Into the 4th series in as many days..this is the only way to watch this kind of thing, otherwise life gets in the way. The holidays have been fantastic so far, lots of chill out time and a chance to check out some great reading material for next year. Sad to hear about James Brown, I remember being 16 or so and getting hold of his 'living in America' 45rpm and playing it at a girrls get together. I am afraid I was the only one rockin out to it, David Cassidy and Michael Jackson seemed the order of the day. Aah well can't always run with the crowd. Hope he can do a few fancy moves up there and teach those angels some funky moves. Salute you Mr B.

Here is a great track from Dale Watson enjoy!!

star blues cracker

Back online..been away watching the whole of series 4 of 24. I haven't seen it in a year and I have forgotten a lot of it. Probably my favourite series of this genre. Got series 5 still in the wrapper ready to be ripped open over the Christmas break Yeehaa!!
Listening to an Uncut collection of tracks inspired by Bob Dylan that came out some time back. I often am disappointed in cover versions and Dylan copyists, however this is a cracker and i recommend it if you can get hold of it. The opening track by Douglas September Lady and I is my favourite. Biggest surprise had to be Billy Bragg's version of Deportees. My giddy aunt he can sing!!

Here is a band that I have followed for a while and if you need a present for a family member this is the band.
