maybe I am, but it looks like I won’t be in China. Seems this site and its subversive mix of illustrations, paintings and photos is just too much for the chinese authorities.

Check if your site is censored in China @ greatfirewallofchina.net.

All links now dead. Sad times.

A return to the web

after a couple of months offline due to what could well be described as ‘circumstances beyond our control’ its great to welcome back online the website of childrens illustrator Janette Louden.

Soon to be updated with some new images. Happy belated birthday mate.

Last Chance…

it looks to be the last chance to download any of the recent Tommy Boyd ‘Talk Radio’ shows that are broadcast weekly on BBC Southern Counties as the guy archiving them has been sent a cease and deist letter. I’ve been a big fan of the slightly ‘off the wall’ topics Tommy used to broadcast on Talk Radio about fifteen years ago (before it became Talk Sport and was good.)

While I realise these shows are indeed copyright material its a shame that the BBC aren’t producing this kind of online archive themselves, all they seem to be able to supply is an iffy online stream broadcast, which never seems to work that well and is dead inside a week. What with both this archive and the hundreds of old john Peel shows floating around on the internet there is clearly a market for this and it seems a shame these shows are broadcast once and then gone.

Anyway, Tommy Boyd Radio Shows here until next week. Seems someones been uploading the latest show to a file host service on the internet, links are here.

All links now dead. Sad times.

My Nightmare Before Christmas

Minehead Beach
Just back from my second ATP festival of the year, at the new Butlins Minehead site. Nearly turned into my own personal nightmare after one of the wheels on my car decided it had its own agenda and wanted to go separate ways with me and the other three wheels.

A big thank you and recommendation to Longstones Garage, Cannington nr Bridgwater and the ever so helpful Michael, who not only got everything back together in time for my journey home on Monday but also drove me the rest of the way to the festival on Friday.

The festival itself was an interesting affair, new venue [Butlins Minehead – Think a giant motorway services, only with alcohol sold everywhere] and a few teething problems regards the stages and their capacity’s and their wish to create queues everywhere. The largest problem for me was the stages and the fact that they were spread out and the usual ‘pick and mix’ style of viewing a bit of everyone’s set wasn’t really possible. So didn’t see as many bands as usual but the set for the Gang Of Four was really enjoyable, as were The Stooges, shame Mike Watt didn’t get to do a solo set mind, and the MC5/DKT finale was a fine way to end things. Theres some pictures of the Saturday afternoon stroll to find a pub we took, that turned into a 10 mile round trip (You see a sign for ‘The Blue Anchor‘ and you figure its a pub along the coast a little – You’re so wrong) Here.

Trendster Clothing

i‘ve spent a fair bit of time over the past month or so helping to get the Trendster Clothing website online, The site was created to give consumers with a conscience about the environment, a choice of trendier ethical garments. They specialise in clothing that is either sweatshop free, organic or commercial and printable.

trendsterclothing.com Site no longer live.

Tom Russell

great show from songwriter Tom Russell at Birmingham’s Ceol Castle tonight. A really nice, intimate, friendly venue, admittedly located in one of Birmingham’s less attractive areas.

Great show anyway, with fantastic accompaniment on the mandolin by Mikael Martin.

Hes back over in the UK later in the year, check his website for dates.
