Minds Music Monday – Fitba Toons

In light of His Nibs’s post about the bloody fitba on Saturday, I decided this MMM should highlight tracks representing the nations.

And seeing that in said post he declared his love for the English team, then we have both Jerusalem and When Spirits Rise to represent both England and Scotland.

In fact, Scotland play at Hampden Park this afternoon. And that, my friends, is the extent of my knowledge of the (reputed) “beautiful game”.

I had compiled a completely different post and wanted it to be my MMM post, but it is awaiting approval, so it may just be a bonus post later on today, or will be posted some time during the week (fingers crossed). But I promise that the normal Sons And Fascination/Sister Feelings Call track-by-track celebration Minds Music Mondays WILL RETURN next week!

Until then…Yes, Sir – you *can* indeed boogie! (I miss your dad dancing!)

In Memory Of Pete

Wigan Council via their social media platforms shared an image of a familiar face earlier today. Pictured is Malcolm Garrett, outside of Pete Shelley’s former home in Leigh. Wigan Council had Malcolm unveil a blue plaque at the home. Something I am sure he was very honoured to do.

Today is the second anniversary of Pete’s passing. He is still very much missed by all. Today was a lovely way to pay tribute to his memory and legacy.

Jim Interview With Georgey Spanswick For BBC Local Radio (on syndication)

On syndication throughout England, on Thursday night, Georgey Spanswick interviewed Jim…and what a lovely interview it was. Even brushed upon the old “Prip” name again.

Gotta say, boy, we love you for those “weird ears” 🙂 Makes me think I should restart the “Left Ear Appreciation” fan page again. Lol. Best to leave my fetishes for my mind only, I guess. Lol

Loving the “Poison Arrow” duet at the end. Georgey has potential for future BVs. What do you say, Sir?

Click on the image of Georgey to hear the interview. Enjoy!
