  • Persian Melancholy

    Persian Melancholy


    Lots of music from Iran today. So sad about those lives lost. A direct consequence of a mindless act of murder by the megalomaniacal idiot in the White House. New releases, concert previews, and a salute to John Mann (Spirit of the West), for whom a Celebration of Life was to be held that afternoon.

  • R.I.P. Neil Innes

    R.I.P. Neil Innes


    Mostly new releases today. Many fine recordings have been accumulating at Rogue Towers this month and now that the seasonal fare is over and done with I finally got a chance to unleash some of it!! Also a brief tribute to the remarkable talent of Neil Innes, erstwhile Python and Bonzo founder, who passed away this week. His finest hour must surely be The Rutles, though.

    Gloomy Winter and BoJo The Clown


    After the sad demise of fRoots magazine I managed to find another source of musical inspiration: Songlines Magazine. Which comes with a fresh CD / download album every month. Quite a few cuts from Songlines 2019 today! Plus a bunch of winter songs and laments for the UK election. Take down the Union Jack. Forever.

    Holding On To Saturday Night


    Tried to cram in as much music as possible to distract me from thinking about a week of medical appointments and difficult meetings. Memories of the Tonder Festival in Denmark are still fresh in my mind so lots more music from their 45th anniversary, and some concert previews, but no special "theme" this week.

  • Return from Europe - with new music!

    Return from Europe - with new music!
