  1. If you haven't already, check out his current album 'Kiwanuka', it's fantastic.

    I feel the same, dismayed at the lack of tolerance. That's why I avoid all politics on social media, it's just so nasty. I'm stopping up late tonight, big vested interest, watching out for Bury South and Bury North, the way I hear it is both are on a knife edge.
  3. Julia Jacklin - my favourite new artist, seen her 3 times already Lisa O’Neill - Quirky Irish folk singer The Comet Is Coming Stick in the Wheel - Punky London folk Billie Eilish ....and plenty more, it’s been a good year
  4. One Hotpot Two Hats....I’m impressed! One of our old gang, who was always a little bit too much into the festival spirit, came one year and claimed he’d just seen the best gig of his life, The Lancashire Hotpots, and despite ridicule and argument he stuck with it. To this day I’m still not sure if he meant it but I think he probably did.
  5. The issue is of crucial importance in my constituency, Bury South, with one of the largest Jewish communities in the UK, who traditionally vote Labour. It’s looking likely they will change allegiance, especially as the Jewish ex-Labour MP Ivan Lewis, running as an independent, is now recommending they vote Tory. Bizarre, seeing as he’s a candidate! So, from what I understand, my local Jewish community believe, and are scared of, the direction of the Labour Party.

  7. Back in 2010 I met Mick Jones in Strummerville, it was a real highlight for me even though I made a fool of myself telling him several times how much I loved The Clash.

  10. Friends saw him in Aberdeen last week, said he was amazing (And they like Motorhead, The Damned, etc!!)
  11. Yes, it’s the Friday match we have. Can’t see Scotland qualifying though, unfortunately.
  12. After much thought, my favourite ‘cover’ is Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love, because it’s the song that got me into rock music and remains an absolute favourite. it’s hugely influenced by Willie Dixon’s You Need Love but also they made it their own, so arguable whether a cover of not. When does influenced by become ripped off...?
  13. We’ve got tickets for the England match at Wembley just before Glastonbury- potentiality versus Scotland - but no matter what happens I won’t be interrupting my festival experience.
  14. Gimme reggae and I’m going to say I love it! I saw Lee Scratch Perry last week, he can’t even cover his own songs, seemingly making it up as he went along. It was still brilliant!
  15. That’s great, I don’t believe I’ve heard that before. To me their Proud Mary is one of the greatest covers of all time, in this performance it’s two versions in one. I really miss Tina Turner. https://youtu.be/hzQnPz6TpGc
