Read about Gertrude Bell. A great story.

She helped create Iraq. There was a film recently on her. It was stunning. Her grave is still tended everyday in Baghdad. I want to visit it some day

Any on here like him. I got an album off of a colleague a couple of years ago. The songwriting is really good.

Going to dip my ears in further. Southeastern has been recommended to me

The Stone Roses & Ian Brown. They used to mean everything to me

Worked for the rail division.

It wasn’t the company it was the people. A great crowd.

Still life goes on. I am on the motorways now, which is ok.

I had a job I liked, but it was with Carillion. Sometimes it was stressful but generally ok. The gaffer was hot headed but decent & fair
The rest of the people were ace & everyone looked out for each other.

Obviously I had to get a new job, which didn’t take too long, as my industry has had no investment for years.

That ain’t the problem, I miss my old one which now doesn’t even exist ! The place is ok, just not as good & in a different industry. Still keep plugging away

They are a great band & I really like them. I have never seen them, but would be worth a look

Good read that. A wouldn’t mind a look. The airport sounds great

I have always been slow

Just got this on the off chance. It’s brilliant.

Best new band I have heard since wild beasts. Sort of early Simple Minds, Campag Velocet & Manicsy. The singer is ace a bit like Pete Voss crossed with Malcolm Owen. Proper visceral.

They sound fuck all like the libertines, the coral or oasis. Refreshing

Just read this in one sitting. Very good & honest.

He has certainly lived a life. The bits on growing up in West London were excellent. Certain bits were quite disturbing though.

A great album. The musicians on it as well. Ian Broudie. Ian Mcnabb, the drummer from icicle works. Chocolate bubble gum is ace

The wild swans are and have been a Liverpool supergroup

I know Phil de Freitas drummed on revolutionary spirit & he sounds magisterial
