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!)
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.
Today on the anniversary of Buzzcock, Pete Shelley's death, we announce that a blue plaque in his name has been unveiled on the exterior of his former Leigh home. Malcolm Garrett (below), a designer who worked with Buzzcocks, unveiled the plaque & Pete's family were in attendance pic.twitter.com/F25dGIEJJd
