No appearance of his daughter this time on My Name Is Ruin as she did at Brighton, I guess she has to go to school occasionally.

A very good support act in the form of Nightmare Air, they will require some looking up.

Clare Grogan / Midge Ure


Guildhall, Portsmouth

09 November 2017


Finally seen my teenage fantasy in Clare Grogan, only about 30+ years late!

She was great fun, very chatty and also a good performance live

Next up was The Christians who were not really on my radar but were not actually that bad.

Headlining was Midge Ure who put in an amazing performance covering his Ultravox, Visage and Solo work and even some Top Of The Pops thrown in.

A great night all round

So the BBC have finally done it and thrown 50 years of tradition out of the window and cast a female Doctor.

Political correctness wins again.

I’m sure Jodie Whittaker is a fine actress but she is NOT the Doctor

The end of watching it for me.

,KRAFTWERK,VenueColston Hall Bristol


Date17 June 2017

Not seen Kraftwerk since the Computer World tour of 1982

Tickets sold out very quick but we managed to get in at Bristol on an absolutely glorious day. Plenty of drink before hand, a necessity as we were going dressed up in traditional red shirt and ties.

Kraftwerk did not disappoint, never sure how much they actually play live but that’s not the point. It’s the total visual and sound experience of one of musics great pioneers that counts.

No it’s not mine, but this site has now been online, in its current form, for two years!


Very few format changes from last time just a bit more content.

Also on that very first day I announced the arrival of Kyle Bennett and Kal Naismith to Portsmouth and a year later (2016) I had indicated that Kal Naismith had been a disappointment. A year makes a lot of difference and now Naismith is currently one of our best players
