Tonight I went to see Manchester band Blue Orchids at The Trades Club in Hebden Bridge.. They have been going since 1979 . They started life supporting Nico during her "Manchester Period" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Orchids

This is Phil the Ex-Fireman in front of an advertising hoarding in Halifax town centre.
He looks a bit like Ernest Hemmingway.Non?
Phil is my oldest friend. We first met at secondary school in 1963. We went to stay with his family on the Shankhill Road in East Belfast in 1968 and, later, hitched around Ireland ,the same year, meeting Beach Boy Mike Love and spending a morning with him ! True! not bull shitting!
Plus a million other things later (n.b. I am a Grand Parent to his children)
A Sound Gezzer! I Love the bloke.We are Solid.
Anyway.We went in Halifax for our first evening drink in 18 months tonight . Ken & Phil wanted to go in the afternoon , but I'd booked a Sauna/Gym & swim today so it had to be late.
Very dead in Town .Lots of tumbleweed !. Ken bumped into a friend called Julie .... she's the landlady of "The Blind Pig" in Sowerby Bridge . It was her birthday on Thursday ... .[Pictured below on the right.....]
The audio is Eric Clapton .
