Martin Weaver – “My first real band was a covers band but I was sacked by the manager, he said I didn’t fit in (he was right). The bass player and drummer walked out with me and we became Wicked Lady”
I’ve just had a quick scope around the Skeleton Crew section on here and end up on GREY HAVEN reading the FUGAZI post which in turn took me to You Tube to listen to the debut album, Repeater. After pressing play I got to exactly 46 seconds in to the first song (Turnover) to which the lyrics are “To Turn Off The Alarm” at the exact moment of Mr Picciotto uttering these words the neighbors house alarm went off… It sounded out 3 times and as soon as he had finished saying the word ALARM it stopped!!! I looked down at the digital clock and the time on my screen was 00:00. Although the time has nothing to do with this odds killing case of life intimating art the timing does… coincidence? Or just a very strange occurrence indeed… You decide.
This one goes off like a rouge firework….. strap yourself in and take the ride!!! WARNING: The last 4 minutes may blister your mind!!

The above video consists of a mixture of footage I have accumulated from a few lazy Sunday’s down on the flat rail, If I didn’t take advantage of a wet day and decide to hunt down the clips and put them to use they may have been lost forever….

The music used was extracted from the Johnny Cash dvd Ridin’ the Rails: The Great American Train Story and you can watch the original piece I extracted below in full.

Bo Hansson’s third solo album, Attic Thoughts (1975) features in this installment of crate diggers, a blend of other-worldly progressive rock and fairy tale-like ambiance you only have to look at the classic human-insect themed album art to know what you are getting yourself into with this one…….. Hunt it down and MELT YOUR MIND!
A change of speed, a change of style.
A change of scene, with no regrets,
A chance to watch, admire the distance,
Still occupied, though you forget.
Different colors, different shades,
Over each mistakes were made.
I took the blame.
Directionless so plain to see,
A loaded gun won’t set you free.
So you say.
The video below taken from the old grey whistle test proves we are dealing with fact over fiction! BODY SNATCHERS are walking among us and nobody is safe……. not even Mr Souter!
Pack your bags and run to the fucking hills!!!! They want your life, They want your FLESHY structure.

I could’ve had, I could’ve had religion
But my little girl wouldn’t let me pray
I tell the truth, she drove my spirit away
She drove my spirit away
