The Flaming Stars ‘Like Trash’

I’ve just got back from a wonderful pre-40th birthday weekend away in Edinburgh- what a fantastic and beautiful city. Many thanks to those readers who gave us some tips on where to go. We particularly enjoyed a few pints in The Bow Bar on Saturday afternoon and visited Mathers on Broughton Street a couple of times and several other bars and restaurants down there besides. In one of the record shops, Avalanche on Cockburn Street I think, I found a 7″ copy of this Flaming Stars single, amongst other vinyl goodies. London’s The Flaming Stars have been producing quality literate garage rock since 1997. And in a link to the upcoming election, like trash is how most of us are going to be treated if the Tories get in on Thursday. Use your X to stop them.

So What Should Someone Do In Edinburgh For The Weekend?

I have a birthday approaching that starts with a 4 and ends with an 0. To celebrate Mrs Swiss is taking me away for the weekend, the May Day bank holiday weekend, and we’re going to Edinburgh, somewhere neither of us have been since the late 1980s. So, to any of the readers of Bagging Area who know Edinburgh and have any ideas about the places to visit, bars to drink in, record shops to spend an hour or so in, or anywhere else that might be fun/cool/interesting/off the beaten track, please leave a comment or email ldotturner23atntlworlddotcom (replace dots and ats for symbols, I don’t want tons of adverts for performance enhancing pills in my inbox thank you very much).
40. Jeez.
