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.

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

2015 2016 2017


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

Just got myself a Stereoping 8000 controller for my Korg DW8000. This will replace the rather clunky Philip Rees C16 which worked well but had a rather “homemade” feel about it and the functions not labelled.

This is part of a series of units they make for various synths, if it is successful then I may buy the ones they have for the Yamaha TX-81z and the Kawai K4

I absolutely love this picture from Entertainment magazine to mark the 20th Anniversary or Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Just had to include it here

From left to right Amber Benson , Alyson Hannigan , Nicholas Brendon , Emma Caulfield , Alexis Denisof , Charisma Carpenter , Seth Green , David Boreanaz , Sarah Michelle Gellar , James Marsters , Michelle Trachtenberg , Kristine Sutherland

And in front, the legend himself, Joss Whedon

If only it had included Anthony Head (Giles), Eliza Dushku (Faith), Julie Benz (Darla) and Juliet Landau (Drusilla)
