Wednesday [10 to 13]

Luvverly day out there, 10C and sunny.

13.  Ripper

Today has turned into a very sad day for me. I just heard, via Planet Rock that Burke Shelley of Budgie passed away a couple of days ago. First saw them in 1973 but many times after that. A hugely underrated, legendary band.

We have one metal fan I know of who'll be sad.  Meanwhile, try this:


12.  Yep, this was being talked about out there

Playing Russian Roulette with the lives of millions: justice awaits the psychopaths and sociopaths trying to kill us:

[More are waking up but only because the MSM either realises it has to be on the winning side of history and arrests are imminent or whatever - have you noticed how many are now sending MSM links here?  This is also why it's conversation out there today.  It's about to hit the fan.]

11.  Housekeeping

I'm back, all done, about to tuck into some chicken and chips, bought a laptop, shopped. Steve, as long as I don't actually forget one!  Blogging starts in about an hour [properly]. Right, 12:45 p.m. and ready to blog - anything to blog about?  I need to do some reading of today's drops, both places and blogrolls.

Just to let you know James, 6. is a repeat of 29. from yesterday - you could replace with the following :)

Explosive stuff..

    1. I went to a few of their gigs in the early 1970s. They often played around the Herts/Essex borders. A friend of mine was a great fan, so I often jumped in his Cortina 1600E when he was off to a gig. Those were happy days, another link gone.

    2. I was at every one of their gigs in our area. Our faces became known to them. This was around the time that Ray Philips was the drummer. He later left the band and formed another band called Woman (never did find/hear any of their stuff) and Pete Boot replaced him, though myself and lots of others thought that Philips was the better of the two, up to that point, Philips was the only one that used a double bass kit and was capable of playing it (the drum solo at the start of 'You're the biggest thing since powdered milk' is a classic). Tony Bourge played a Gibson semi-acoustic which was often stuffed with chip paper to stop the feedback. He later joined Philips and formed a band called Tredegar. Happy days indeed.

      As you may know, the band came from Cardiff. There's another Welsh band from Bridgend coming up today in much the same way, which I think of in the same way as Budgie, though their sound is different obviously - I'd call it post grunge. Its probably the Welsh connection that makes me think that way.
