𝐍𝐨𝐭 𝐁𝐚𝐝 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐀 𝐂𝐨𝐫𝐩𝐬𝐞

I have felt proper shite most of this week.
 Gum& teeth infection , asthma , earache , head & neckache . I've felt my age ( 70 ). 
 I spent most of yesterday afternoon trying to catch up on my sleep. [Which thankfully , i did . ] 
It being sunny & warm and I kept thinking I should be " out having fun " Still. " Mustn't Grumble " ... Anyway , Cath dragged me out to The Shoulder of Mutton in Mytholmroyd tonight for a drink in The Beer Garden. .
 Thankfully , all the Big Boys were inside watching Manchester City on the telly. Not a bad photo , considering..... not bad for a corpse .....?

Wild Horses

a clip here  of a young couple from Hexham from the audience . 

Martin  had met them once after a gig in the North East . They got chatting and , backstage, sang to him one of his own songs 

He then told them that they sang it better than he did, and promised them "one day you will sing that on stage with me" and tonight in Hebden Bridge , for the first time, they did!

☆"𝐸𝑛𝑔𝑙𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝐹𝑜𝑟 𝑌𝑜𝑢𝑟 𝑃𝑙𝑒𝑎𝑠𝑢𝑟𝑒." ☆ : 2023

Chris spent New Year in Halifax. 
 So today I picked him up and we then drove for a Turkish Bath to Harrogate . 
A lovely sunny afternoon. In Harrogate itself, they had a Big Wheel . a Fair & Ice Skating .But, a bit the 'end of the season vibe ' about the place . ( like Blackpool in October) 
Not that many people about..... maybe, the rich entitled posh kids of Harrogate had been all shagged-out from the holidays......?

Well, for no obvious reason, this is Primal Scream . i've seen them live twice ( including last summer at The Piece Hall in Halifax ) I have to say they are the best live rock band I have ever witnessed. I'm never sure if audio alone does them justice, but blog, my rules!
