OK,hands up ,who had one of these? My first record player was almost identical to this(different colours) and I’m guessing there are quite a few of you looking at this and suddenly being reminded….?

……and been sold here!¬† There are still a few record stores selling lp’s but this store specialises¬† in 12 inch records(and 7inch!). You need anything on black shiny plastic? Send them an email and I’m sure they will get it to you (tell them I sent you!)

Now this is a real oddity! No one seems to have any info as to why this is atop a doorway leading into rented offices. Not too many people know of this as its tucked away behind a church in a seldom used back street.

Monday is ‘people day’ here from now on,and that gives me an excuse to post another pic from another great gig at the Cluny. The Drams used to be 3/4 of another band that I really loved. This is Brent Best,the singer,guitarist,and songwriter.

My Friday post is always a bar,club or shop these days,and so this piece of art counts as its outside ‘The Gate’. The Gate has many bars,restaurants,a casino and a cinema. Im not sure if I like this or not?

I was a little concerned about this bird as it didnt seem to be well. I got pretty close but it never moved.This picture was again taken by the Ouseburn where there are a few swans living.(ps-sorry I cut off its tail!)
