  • Sadly not an original album but brilliant none the less. A but of ska and blue beat from the fantastic Prince Buster.

    • Did you make the cushion yourself, Chris?

    • I did it whilst listening to the album Kai.

    • ... I love some knitting by the fireside...:-)

    • It is certainly on the decilne and very underestimated Kai, but we will keep the faith ha ha

    • Do you have a patchwork quilt Chris?. A great favourite with the DIY community.

    • Yeah got loads of them John, but the truth is they take a bit more work than your ten minute cushion cover. For the patchwork quilt i usually go to the Mod knitting bee.

    • I knew you would be up with the technology Chris, a Mod to your finger tips.

      By the way were you affected by the fire in Glasgow?, it looked horrendous.

    • Hi John. Thanks for the thoughts but the fire was in the city centre whereas I am now out in the suburbs to the north of Glasgow. The fire was pretty widespread and has devastated a couple of places close to my heart. One is possibly amongst the oldest Chinese restaurants in Glasgow and a place I was in less than a month ago. Directly above that was a club I used to go to that was also a really good venue for gigs. I saw the Purple Hearts there in Feb 1982 and a year later the Truth. Great memories of both gigs.

    • Hii John. Yeah I saw that programme when it was first aired a few years ago. Long before that I had formed my opinion about the vandalism the city authorities had inflicted upon Glasgow. Many a thriving part of the city was torn down in order to build dual carriageways and create empty spaces. It was as if they were trying their level best to depopulate the city and drive people into the new towns that had been built around it. I know at the time the housing stock was terrible (1 in 3 houses in Glasgow in 1966 had no indoor toilets) but the houses were good quality and just needed revamped not knocking down.  As you rightly say some of the housing they built as replacements were a disgrace. They were badly thought out, badly built, and some did not last much more than a decade due to dampness issues. The only thing I could not wholly agree with the programme was that it seemed to indicate that the destruction was in the dark days of the past. Sadly I have lost count of the  amount of old listed buildings that have mysteriously caught fire in the past decade and have had to be knocked down. Cromwell did less destruction than these chancers.
