If This is Not an Exercise, Could it be a Drill ... an evening with Wire
Today's post is a bit of a departure from my usual psychogeography inspired, urban wanderings, but I had to share my experience from last night. More years ago than I care to remember, a good friend of mine brought in a copy of his brother's Pink Flag album...
Today's post is a bit of a departure from my usual psychogeography inspired, urban wanderings, but I had to share my experience from last night. More years ago than I care to remember, a good friend of mine brought in a copy of his brother's Pink Flag album by Wire. To say I was blown away would ...

Apologies for the absence of posts over the past couple of weeks, it's all been a bit manic for various reasons that I won't go into here, but I'm back now with some tales from the river bank. The River Thames between Benson and Shillingford, Oxfordshire to be precise.

I Think I've Hit My Mid-life Crisis - a Vinyl Obsession
So, as I alluded to in my previous blog post, I seem to have hit my mid-life crisis. Whilst I haven't ruled out getting a ridiculously fast car, or running off with someone half my age, my crisis seems to have centred itself around an obsession for vinyl. H...

An Urban Wander near Gloucester Train Station
Having arrived too early for the hospital visiting hours, I decided to take a short wander to see what was around. I knew the area near the hospital was close to the one remaining Gloucester station, but was amazed at the size of the area that the old railw...
Having arrived too early for the hospital visiting hours, I decided to take a short wander to see what was around. I knew the area near the hospital was close to the one remaining Gloucester station, but was amazed at the size of the area that the old railway sheds and sidings used to occupy.

An Early Morning Urban Wander around Hammersmith and Fulham, London
This is my first post of 2015, so Happy New Year everyone. My first Urban Wander of 2015 took me back to some familiar territory, but as always I spotted new things and things that had changed since my last visit. The first picture is all about change. The ...

Yet another coastal wander around Lymington, Hampshire
Between trawling through record shops in search of vinyl I used to have as a teenager, and work, I have found some time for a bit of wandering. I had last week off work and the weather was simply wonderful. We didn't go away anywhere but instead undertook a...

Ghost signs of the former William Whiteley's Depositories, Kensington Olympia, London
Not much time for commentary this week I'm afraid, but just about enough time to share these pictures of the signage on the former William Whiteley's Depository, which sits alongside the railway line heading south from Kensington Olympia station. It was a b...

It was a bit of a challenge to find a good angle, ...

A short Urban Wander around Queen's Park and Kensal Green, London
Unfortunately I had nowhere near enough time to do this area justice, and only managed the briefest of urban wanders during a short lunch break. I've posted about the Kensington Gasworks previously when I wandered along the Grand Union Canal, but had not se...
This was a curious old van. I've seen ones similar to this used as coffee shops, but this one just seemed to be full of cardboard boxes, with a foliage trim to the windscreen. Maybe it's work in progress and will transform into something wonderful. Old Citroen Van, Queen's Park, London ...

Story
Introduction
Avid music listener and collector since the late 1970's. I like all sorts of genres ... punk, post-punk, new wave, industrial, ambient, krautrock, alternative, indie, goth ... naturally I have quite a few items I no longer need in physical format, so here's a link to my records and CDs for sale

I'm also interested in most things vintage, and have 100's of vintage postcards for sale and vintage magazines for sale

Having grown up in one of the London suburbs, I'm also interested in John Betjeman, J.G.Ballard, London suburbs, Avengerland (Borehamwood area where the classic 1960's and 1970's TV shows were filmed).
