An evening drift around Kensington, in search of mews
With time on my hands after work one evening this week, and my passion for London Mews reignited, I set out on a Psychogeography inspired, Urban Wander around Kensington in search of more. This first mews I have passed plenty of times before, but usually in...
With time on my hands after work one evening this week, and my passion for London Mews reignited, I set out on a Psychogeography inspired, Urban Wander around Kensington in search of more.

Cowboys International - The Original Sin, Virgin records, c.1979
I have neglected this blog for far too long. 2015 has seen me buy a brand new turntable, a Denon DP 200 USB , for anyone who's interested. Not the highest spec by a long way, but it does the job nicely and has reignited my passion for vinyl. Most of 2015 ha...

A short wander around the leafy suburb of Richmond, London
Richmond-upon-Thames has always been one of my favourite places in London to visit, but I've not been there for a while. Last week I was fortunate enough to be able to spend some time there for a work event. Most of the time was spent locked away in a confe...

The June Brides - There are Eight Million Stories, c.1985
I only ever owned one June Brides record, which I think was No Place Called Home , but alas that's long gone in what was a somewhat over enthusiastic clear out several years ago. I'm very pleased to say that I managed to pick up up a copy of their album The...

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).
