2018

view & download these photos (it's free!) here:
 https://zimnoch.smugmug.com/My-historyfamily/2018/ Your not going to get any description or explaination  .You know that, dont you?   But it does look like I might have had a good & busy year. I saw surprisingly few gigs this year.
Though what I did see , was quality.
Jane Siberry ("so so good" in my best Donald Trump voice) . I listened to her music in 1997 (long drives from Boston Spa) Every bit as beautiful as I hoped.
British Sea Power ( for the 5th time in my life) Why are they not big?
Simone Felice at The Deaf Institute in Manchester (what quirky venue) .I love the bloke.
 But my best gig was Young Fathers in Manchester. So much intelligence.So much forward thinking .a knock out concert.
Young Fathers- Holy Ghost from Oscar Hudson on Vimeo.

poortoun : "a city with my name on, i will enter in disguise" : Jackie Leven.

see all this week's sepia saturday posts

I am having incredible lucid dreams at the moment: like a box-set I keep getting repeats of 'Previous Espisodes'. Mostly of places I used to live. Hebden Bridge:Halifax:Cheshire:Liverpool:London's East End;London's City ..etc. Warm dreams...but I wake up wondering where I am now......No Partisan!

Jackie Leven:Winchester: 2001. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_Leven
It's 7 years since dear sweet Jackie died....... 
here   is my post from that time...........
This week's sepia saturday theme is around that of "bedroom".
 Here are two photos I took of my bedroom in 1972.
 I can date them fairly well, due to the wall display.
I was back at my Mum & Dad's house in Halifax after a year in the City of London youth hostel where I had been working.
I display a pencil sketch of me drawn by a lass from Wales. Some underground newspapers & graphics from OZ magazine on the wall.
No Maps you notice? Just a calendar.
Within months, I was off to Liverpool & teacher training college.
This was my security between the two......
Strange to say, I feel myself ( a little) in that same place again...
