One screening only at GFT - The Monorail Film Club
on Sunday 25th January presents The Transatlantic Feedback
Not to be missed!!
Digesting the past week and the ramifications it has on things down the pike. I believe wholeheartedly in the "what's for ye will not go by ye". Loosely translated it means if your number comes up then you have to deal with it. And that I will. As, if and when.

In the meantime, it's a world without Ron Asheton. Here's Mike Watt on the subject. In my opinion there would never have been a Stooges reunion without him. I remember the time that J. Mascis brought Ron to Glasgow with The Fog. I wasn't there but the excitement was palpable. In my opinion, that "tour" set the scene for Iggy to get his old troupe together. Anyway, here's what MW had to say.

If you go over to Jim Marshall's place then you can find out what James Williamson has been up to. No Raw Power for Coachella then methinks...

The only good news I received this week really is that Annika Norlin won the best lyrics Grammi. If you go to the website, you'll see a photo from the occasion that pretty much sums up what is so special about this person.

And there goes another one...

RIP - Dave Dee
