HALLOWEEN!


How ironic….Society condemns acts of violence, torture and evil, then for one night a year people celebrate the ghoulish, gruesome and macabre. HA, HA, HA, HA, HA!!!!

WOW! What a sickening spectacle the media have created…The Death of a Devil. GOTCHA!….The politicians celebrate with retribution and revenge for Lockerbie, Yvonne Fletcher and victims of Libyan semtex used by the IRA. The hypocrites….no mention of the Western weapons sold to Gaddafis regime over the years and used to suppress the Libyan people. Still at least NATO’s ’just war’ came at a fair price for Britain….£300 million, I mean who wants new schools, hospitals and homes when we’ve got bombs to build? Oh yeah, that’s right, the people of Libya cos they’ve had theirs destroyed in the revolution/uprising/war. Still….democracy costs, and perhaps we take our freedoms for granted here in our safe European homes, like free speech and the right to protest. That is unless I start suggesting that people go out and start a riot, then I could end up in prison for four years, and anyone turning up at said riot with their faces covered up would be asked by the police to remove them. Our leaders are no better than the dictators they oppose in a World Of War!

JAYNE COUNTY - Betty Grables Legs (5 Track mini-album vinyl rip)



Back in the 70’s Jayne County was the real deal, man enough to be a woman. The Dolls had the frocks but were full on heterosexuals. Wayne as he was known then was a transsexual or is it transgender performance artist working the same New York joints as the Dolls. In 1977 he relocated to London and formed the Electric Chairs, who became infamous in the punk scene thanks to their foul mouthed ballads like; Fuck Off and Toilet Love. By 1980 Wayne had become Jayne and The Electric Chairs were no more, although Jayne continued to release records throughout the decade, including this one from 1989, a 5 track mini album on Jungle Records. What you hear is what you get….back to the garage New York Rock’n’Roll. get yer hands on Betty Grables Legs here. In 2011 Jayne is still giving it to the man, just go and check out her blog.

It's a funny old world, but who's laughing?

So then Colonel Gaddafi is dead….No surprises there then, it was only a matter of time. Another dictator found hiding like a rat in a drain. One less obstacle in the way of the Westernization of the World, but a whole lotta problems in Libya and the rest of the Arab Spring uprising nations fighting for democracy as their leaders clinging on to power, thanks to less involvement by Western NATO forces. Factions will be fighting in the power vacuums that are going to develop. Western politicians will be breathing a sigh of relief as all their dodgy dealings with Ghadaffi will be buried in the hole where he was hiding. He could have been taken alive but was executed instead, by rebel forces loyal to the USA, the UK and the French. I wonder who’s gonna be getting the contracts to help rebuild Libya? It’ll be people like that best friend who former British defence secretary Liam Fox took to work.
These are trouble torn and interesting times. The British state stuck the boot in first at The Dale Farm travellers camp by sending in riot police with Tazars and shields, no wonder they got piss thrown over them. Anti-Capitalist protests are taking place across the world from New York to Athens; people want an alternative to the bonus culture of greed. People aren’t happy with the cost of living; Chelsea football fans have taken a stand at the price of tickets to see their team play.
Still The Stone Roses have reformed and are gonna make us all happy, as people sit shivering and in darkness cos energy prices are too high, or are beaten down by the authorities when they exercise their freedom to protest.

THE STOOGES - My Girl Hates My Heroin (Vinyl Album Rip)




Not much to say about The Stooges that hasn’t been said, so I’ll get straight to the point. Here’s a rather crackling, but still cracking rip of an album released by Revenge Records in 1989 of some Raw Power era Stooges rehersal recordings from 1973 in Detroit. Enjoy! Or Destroy!


Notes from the cutting room floor.


With all the politicians talking about economic growth, and how it is or isn’t happening but more importantly to them how it needs to be happening, has got me thinking…..The Frankenstein monster of capitalism which over the years has been all consuming has now become out of control and can’t be fed anymore, it is now starting to eat itself. Our economy can’t grow anymore because it is sick, fat and obese through over consumption. People are in debt for the stuff they didn’t need but wanted, so they now can’t afford the stuff they do need. The end result is that we are now sinking into the shit that capitalism has produced, and our present leaders can’t or don’t want to see this because that would make them and their ideologies responsible for not only what has happened in the past, but more importantly what is gonna happen in the future, which is anyone’s guess. I mean they tell us to pay off our credit cards, and in the next breath are encouraging us to spend, because its good for the economy. You can’t have your cake and eat it! Especially when ‘fatty foods’ aren’t good for you.


The longer we keep our heads in the sand the longer and harder they will fuck us up the arse and that goes for our politicians who’ve let our country get fucked by pandering to special relationships with America and complying to directives from Europe, while all the time making sure they’re alright by letting the money makers gamble our money away on stock exchanges and the public services waste it on layers of bureaucracy and middle management with their great and costly ideas of how to improve services, which has resulted in services being cut back for the public and job losses for the workers. Is this the equality of opportunity capitalism offered? No it’s the opportunity for inequality to grow, which it has over the past decade.

You fat bastards!

In a bid to stop Britain sinking under the weight of its unhealthy and obese citizens politicians have been talking/thinking of introducing a tax on foods that contain too much fat. It’s the consumer that will pay this tax, not the producer. Studies have shown that it is the poor that have unhealthy diets. Let them not eat cake! The producers need to be stopped from manufacturing and marketing their junk foods. Make the producer pay! It’s the weight of their wealth that’s making Britain sick and unhealthy!

Life's a gas!

“Arbeit Macht Frei”- Work makes you free. People think that freedom is having the choice between a thousand different products that do the same thing. I think that’s slavery and people have becomes slaves to and for the machine in a world of concentration camp capitalism!

TV nature programs, well I'll be damned!

While watching BBC2’s Autumn Watch wildlife program last night, I couldn’t help but notice that at several places during the program presenter Chris Packham dropped in the names of at least 3 Damned songs (Grimly Fiendish, Neat Neat Neat and Smash It Up) into sentences when he was referring to all things feathered and furry….Bizarre!….I have heard that Chris is a ‘punk rock fan’, but is this the sort of thing we pay our TV Licences to hear? Yeah too bloody right it is! I’m wondering if next week we’re gonna hear about Badgers in their Safe European Homes and how Wild Boars Stay Free in the New Forest or how London’s Calling for migrating geese.

SCREAMING BLUE MESSIAHS - Live @ The Paradise Club, Boston 6/4/88 (FM Broadcast)



One of Britain’s great long lost bands. The Screaming Blue Messiahs were a mutant Rock’n’Roll hybrid of Punk, Rhythm and Blues and Rockabilly. Howling and hollered vocals, guitars chopping and slashing with destructive abandon over the thumping, threading bass and machine gun attack drums.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything by them, so here we go with a FM Radio Broadcast of a show they did at The Paradise Club in Boston USA on 6th April 1988. The band had been booked to do two shows at the club and were expecting a relaxing couple of days there. On the way to the gig they were told it was in fact two back-to-back shows that night. This is the second of the two, and what a show….Enjoy!

It's only words.


“HATRED AND PREJUDICE SPREAD THROUGH OUT THE LAND / WHERE PEOPLE CRITICISE WHAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND / THEY LOOK NO DEEPER THAN WHAT THEIR EYES SEE / THEY LOOK NO DEEPER THAN WHAT’S ON T.V“ I wrote those words in 1988. In 1992 they formed the basis for lyrics to a song by a band I was playing in. I’ve re-issued them for this post in 2011, because something’s never change.
