About Me:

Who really knows what to write here. Complex and got fingers in several pies! First and foremost, family man love my wife of 22 years and our 4 kids. Judo, a 32 year obsession and counting. Mod, from hearing the stories of the Gilmerton mods in the 60’s from my old man, and watching Quadrophenia in 85’ when we got our first video player, I was 14. Been into it since then in all its various guises since, take from that what you will!

Top 5 tunes at the moment:

Top 5 tunes, change from day to day and week to week. I live a good drive over the Forth Bridge to work, so often spend time sitting in traffic which is my sanctuary. Windows up music on, head bobbing as I destroy classics with my shocking singing voice! There’s the obvious favourites, Small Faces, The who, some Kinks etc etc not to into the old 50’s and early 60’s soul, being from the latter generation it’s the later music I’m more into, love the Jam, and maybe not too mod but Madness always raise a grin. And as my youth was spent during the Madchester years in the late 80’s early 90’s I love a bit of that. There is more as I say, it changes with every journey!

Vespa, Lambretta or other?

T5 classic and PX200E with a 210 Malossi.
