2 Weeks....It's been a long time....Now I'm back....Batteries re-charged and ready to go. What's been happening in my absence, all old news but still worth a comment or two. In a bid to make themselves more electable the Liberals ditched Ming Campbell because he was too old. England did the triple and took defeat graciously as ever; It was the plastic pitch, they used illegal fuel, his toe was in. Still eventually everyone got over it, felt proud 'we'd' got there any way and accepted that....Shit happens. Talking of which California burned and superstars paniced. Once the flames subsided The Terminator summoned Bush, who rushed of to see the poor White Anglo Saxon Protestants and said he was with them; just like he did(n't) when New Orleans flooded. Fire, Water.....what next Pestilence? All change in the media..Ant and Dec finally shown for the frauds they are. Cut backs at the BBC; there's only so much you can spend on repeats. NME gave away a rather fine and free Love Music Hate Racism CD and had an article discussing the subject with today's rising stars; Tom from The Enemy is shaping up to be another generations Joe Strummer. Great stuff. On a sadder note Paul Fox, bassist in The Ruts passed away. No Ruts No Love Music Hate Racism. On a possibly lighter/bizarre/sinister note I'll end this post with a story from Southampton; where in one street 8 cats have been taken away from their owners and dumped 25 miles away. Their owners then received a letter informing them what had been done and why? the answer being that their cats had been crapping in gardens and killing birds. There's nowt so queer as folk. I wonder what would happened if they got hold of the local 'ASBO Yobs' Anyway that's yer lot. Broadcast over. If you didn't get yer hands on the NME's CD, its available here: http://www.nme.com/lovemusichateracism Worth downloading for The Enemy's brilliantly titled Fear Killed The Youth Of Our Nation and Carbon/Silicons re-vamped The Network's Going Down.

This one sided 7" was given away free with a live album of the bands. Unfortunately the LP was stolen with along with others, many years ago. Fortunately this was in my box of singles, which the thieving bastard never got their hands on. So here yer go, it's (Do The) Caveman by East London proto-goths Wasted Youth, recorded live at their final gig on 6/12/82 at The Venue in London.
Right then here's some Psycho Sex, courtesy of a Lords of The New Church 12" These 4 tracks: Real Bad Time, Things Go Bump, Follow, Bang Bang Baby Maybe were released in 1986 on the French label; Bondage International. Not the bands finest songs, but still top stuff and essential listening, from the purveyors of the finest sleaze rock this side of Iggy and the New York Dolls. For a little bonus I've added the two tracks Good To Be Bad and Mindwarp which the band recorded for the soundtrack album to the film Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2. You know what you've got to do, just click.
