Sun Boxes


From the random stuff that drops into my email Inbox this is Sun Boxes. from Colorado. Ambient solar powered sound installation by Craig Colorusso. Very nice and on 7″ vinyl too.

What I want to know is, who are the three people who downloaded Take That’s Never Forget?

Electric Avenue


Regular reader and comment leaver Artog pointed out a while ago that the Electric Avenue ex-Equal Eddy Grant sang about back in 1982 was a real road. He spotted it from the top deck of the 159 bus. It’s in Brixton, SW9. Those postcodes always seem important to Londoners. In the 1880s it was the first market street to be lit by, yes, electricity and it’s beautiful Victorian shop front canopies survived until the 1980s, when some philistine pulled them down. Thatcher probably.

Keeping It Peel Slight Return


A second Peel Session song. It’s half term and I’ve got the time. Early 80s left wing skinheads The Redskins, with Young And Proud from a 1982 session. Get your red docs on and bounce.

Happy 40th Mrs Swiss


Today Mrs Swiss turns 40. The musical aspects of this post might be better off here. She was into them from the start. In fact the first time she took me back to her rented house she had a Mark Owen poster on her bedroom wall. And this song is at least bearable.

Happy Birthday Mrs Swiss.
