Hot Off The Presses

Just a quickie…Punk Torrents will be open for registration from sometime around teatime today until Sunday eve. It’s free, it’s friendly and it’s full of moist musical morsels.

A Bit Of Housekeeping

Over the next few days (or, more likely, months), I intend to take front and back photos of the covers of all of my albums and singles uploaded here. I’m also going to take one of the label, whichever side is more interesting. Then I’m going to edit and resize the cover pics so that […]

My personal responsibility this […]

A Friendly Request

A couple of the Blogger bloggers in my side bar don’t allow comments from non-Blogger bloggers. I’ve grabbed a few things from their excellent uploads but I can’t leave a thanks without signing up for a Blogger account.

If you use Windows I’d suggest using uTorrent as your client (I’ve not bothered or needed […]
