Blackpool Rock

Today I am cycling from Manchester to Blackpool, an organised annual event. Fifty five miles starting from Old Trafford and then heading north around Wigan and Preston and then west towards the Paris of north-west England. The last few miles are often done into a headwind coming ┬áin off the Irish Sea. Something to do isn’t it?

Blackpool’s John Robb has reformed his 80s post-punk group The Membranes and they’ve released a very well received fourteen song lp Dark Matter/Dark Energy- a punky, angular, krautrock influenced concept album, about the creation and continuing expansion of the universe (also affected by the death of John’s father while recording it).

Do The Supernova.

Technical advice anyone? I’ve got two Boxnet accounts for your d/l pleasure. Both have exceeded 100% bandwidth and neither have reset themselves to zero this month. Usually they revert to 0% on the first of the month but they haven’t. Anyone know why?
