Wednesday 15th July

MISIC & VIDEO:

This is for Bret in Brum who sold us vintage vinyl before we set cast off, leaving behind new Birmingham fizzing with electric joy. I still don’t get what happened in the years between 18 & now, but something big has changed the heart of the Midlands, got it pumping with the rhythm of Smethwick drop hammers, the pride, the sweat & blood of an industrial legacy has eventually jump started my old homeland & I take everything dismissive that I ever said back, sad to be leaving. Thanks Bret, for the handshake, the bothering to find that website, thanks for: Johnny Cash ‘Ride this Train’, ‘Christmas at the Patti’, Chronicles ‘…Like a message from the Stars’ & thanks for keeping the Music & Video Exchange open in the exact spot I bought my first steel strung acoustic, still have it, still play it, now sounding like a reborn Brum.

  1. Some familiarity never breeds contempt! It’s always a great feeling when that one special place just doesn’t change. A beacon standing strong.

  2. Ich hab gerade deine einträge der letzten woche überflogen.Irgendwo hab ich gelesen,du hast wem eine mail geschrieben.Ich bin keine lektorin aber hab dann direkt mal nach post gesehen unter dieser mailadresse,was ich lange nichtmehr gemacht hatte aber da war bis auf eine werbung-leider nix.
    Komisch leer wirkte das mailfach,im gegensatz zu meiner anderen adresse,die ich genauso lange nicht gecheckt hab.
    Die mail die ich von uw bekommen hab,sind auch verschwunden.
    Sorry das ich on time nicht englisch schreibe,hab momentan kaum intern et zeit
