    Shit. Just read on the Beeb that Dave Greenfield (keyboardist) has died of coronavirus. I still have RN on vinyl, will have to crank up the volume, a bit later. Grip here I come.

    Quite agree. I'll never actively contribute again. However, I do dip into it occasionally and have gleaned the odd useful nugget, over the years, since the mass exodus of 2009.

    I still have Time and Tide on vinyl. I bought it on the strength of the Gangsters theme. Haven't played it in years, although my memory of it was that it was pretty dull apart from the theme tune.

    St Austell - Tribute. (b)
    Nomadic - Yor Shout. (b-in-b)

    Yor Shout is an American Red ale made with Simcoe and Mosaic hops. Went down very nicely.

    Favourite Books.

    Surprised no-one's done this before now. I'm primarily thinking of novels, but if you want to include non-fiction - feel free, I'm not going to be tight-arsed and prescriptive about it. Here are some...

    I like Richard Thompson and still have a couple of his albums on vinyl. However, I think the much missed Bert Jansch certainly gave him a run for his money. In the living world, I'd like to mention...

    Ah, The Warwick Castle, I remember it well. Between 81-83 I certainly drank a few pints in there, with my college mates, as our flat was only 5 minutes walk away. Perhaps the most memorable evening,...
