This Burning Age – A Muzzle for the Masses (CD)

Live Music Friday – This Burning Age

Yes I know, I said I wouldn’t write about local bands on here again. Last time, despite me saying I’d enjoyed the gig, that I went out of my way to leave my beloved B5 enclosure to get to Moseley upon a recommendation and that my only point was that I wished they’d done some […]

30 Songs in 30 Days: Day 25 – A Song That Makes You Laugh

The Osmonds – Crazy Horses Only because it reminds me of a company do with a 1970s theme, which I obviously organised. I have a clear vision of me and others – much older than myself- head banging to it. Yes we thought we were hilarious. Share the love…
