  10. Tickets for David Byrne and St Vincent at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall were acquired well in advance. I was then asked to attend a meeting in London on the same day. Will I/won't I go to the concert swithering but eventually decided to go for it.Luckily the meeting didn't go over time but it was still a mad rush for train/plane/bus to make it to Glasgow city centre. When I got to the RCH it was announced that the concert would start half an hour later than I expected so I even had time for an overpriced but leisurely pint at the bar!

    2. A_f_R........of course it exists.its also known as ....'early days'.......same difference.....

      and to any of the producers who may eavesdrop in on this little cabal...........its truly shocking there was no place found for a song dedicated to a murdered black working class Londoner whose parents have been 'truly heroic' in their pursuit of justice.I'll bet if he'd been a fictional cowboy called H.Ero he'd have got a shout....but that maybe sums up BBC Scotland for you.

  16. F.F.S. I can't stand how quiet we're becoming.. here's a starter "what's the consensus on the Hydro"? Good, bad, indifferent?

    It's just an idea feel free to suggest a better discussion topic.

  18. C.I.N. "Does BBC Programming influence you into giving"?

    ReplyDelete
  19. OK, I'll offer a wee book review since I haven't been to the Hydro. I'm not desperate to go since I love grotty wee venues, but it all depends who comes that I know I won't get to see anywhere else.

    The book's called The Train in the Night (A Story of Music and Loss) by Nick Coleman. Nick's a music journalist and from out of the blue he was struck down by Sudden neurosensory hearing loss - literally deafening tinnitus, vertigo, nausea, pain, the lot. And nothing to be done about it. The book explores his life in music, especially his teenage years, his attempts to adjust to a life of deafness, a life that seems at its lowest point to be not worth living and finally his finding some sort of way forward. A lot of the book is very entertaining despite the sadness.

    I commend it to the bloggers.


    Anyone read Uncle Vic's book?

    Anyone read this?
