The Paddingtons another Hull band (bigger than the Housemartins allegedly!) and below them The View who play wonderfully melodic tunes at 90 mph.


The very wonderful Sonic Boom Six and Firecamp


This is The Neat, a happening Hull band, notice Jim Sorrow lurking on the right hand side, he later joined The Paddingtons for a rousing rendition of Janie Jones.


Christmas lights in Queens Gardens and spotlights in the Hull City Hall.

Love Music Hate Racism

I went to the Love Music Hate Racism gig last night, and despite poor sound it was very enjoyable, and at £3 a ticket it would be churlish to complain anyway. I got to see The Neat, Sonic Boom Six, The Paddingtons and The View. Also playing were a band called Firecamp, a group of 6 or 7 black kids from London who specialised in sharing 3 microphones and audience participation. Unfortunately when they came on stage, half the audience went to the bar, ah, the irony. Piccies may follow when downloaded.

Duffy - Rockferry

Already been on Lozman's blog but deserves a second hearing.

Local Authoritarians

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been visiting you as often as I used to. Much of my blogging was done during breaks and at lunchtime whilst at work. Sadly, the Local Council (for whom I work) have decided to restrict access to certain websites, of which my blog and consequently others appear to be on the list. This means most of my blogging will now be restricted to weekends. I will of course find some equally petty way of getting back at my employers!

Thought I'd pop into St. Mary's Church on Lowgate to redeem my soul, but not enough time left this year apparently.

Up with the cock

I took this at 10 am this morning, maybe he got up at 4.00 this morning to watch the boxing too.

All the organs of the body were having a meeting,trying to decide who was the one in charge.'I should be in charge,' said the brain,'Because I run all the body's systems, so without me nothing would happen.
''I should be in charge,' said the blood ,'because I circulate oxygen all over so without me you'd all waste away.
''I should be in charge,' said the stomach ,'because I process food and give all of you energy.
''I should be in charge,' said the legs,'because I carry the body wherever it needs to go.
''I should be in charge,' said the eyes,'Because I allow the body to see where it goes.
''I should be in charge,' said the rectum,'Because I'm responsible for waste removal.
'All the other body parts laughed at the rectum and insulted him, so in a huff, he shut down tight.
Within a few days,the brain had a terrible headache,the stomach was bloated,the legs got wobbly,the eyes got watery,and the blood was toxic.They all decided that the rectum should be the boss.
The Moral of the story?
The ass hole is usually the one in charge!

Different days, different rules

On Tuesday the postman left a parcel on our windowsill because it was too big to go through the letter box, and presumably he couldn't be bothered to write out a card and take it back to the sorting office. The fact that anyone could have walked off with it, I guess, wasn't important to him.
On Wednesday we got 2 cards through the door, a parcel for us, and a parcel for Luke who uses our house as a postal address. When Luke went to collect his parcel, yes you've guessed it, they gave him ours.
