Went into a pub yesterday some prat came up and called me "Bruv" lowlife scum ruined my afternoon.

Here is some info I got on the net:
STONEHENGE is as much the work of 20th century engineers as prehistoric man, it was revealed yesterday. One million visitors a year marvel at Britain's most famous ancient monument. But the idea that the existing circle of stones was created 4,000 years ago is a myth, according to historian Brian Edwards.
He has uncovered photographs showing fallen stones being hauled into place using cranes and scaffolding during a series of facelifts beginning in 1901
Lintels were put back up and the giant supporting stones pulled upright. It is thought 14 were set in concrete concealed under the turf and only seven are in their original sockets. Mr Edwards, 44, a post-graduate research student at the University of the West of England in Bristol, said: "Stonehenge was historically cleansed and the true history was hidden away. For too long people have been kept in the dark over the Stonehenge restoration work. "I'm astonished", he added: "What we have been looking at is a 20th century landscape which is reminiscent of what Stonehenge might have looked like thousands of years ago".
"It has in factbbeen created by the heritage industry and is not the creation of any prehistoric peoples."
Most guide books make no mention of the huge construction works begun during the Victorian era or the other restoration work carried out in 1919, 1920, 1958, 1959 and 1964.
The way the monument looks today is very different from when the giant stones lay strewn across salisbury plain in the 18th century,when there were only two stones standing upright.
English Heritage senior archaeologist Dave Batchelor, who will undertake the task, said: "The decision not to cover the reconstruction work in any detail was taken before my time"
"The work is a very important part of the history of Stonehenge and when people are told about it they are fascinated. The information was dropped in the 1970s but we are moving to remedy that."
English Heritage spokeswoman Elspeth Henderson said: "I don't think we have deliberately sought not to talk about the reconstruction.
"It depends what you focus on, and we think most people are interested in why it was built and the different elements of its development."

What a song this is! It gets me thinking about the universe and the meaning of life Bill knows I'm sure - he even says so in this song "... I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know!"

I've also decided to stop managing the folkmob website - bit of a thankless task really, I've been doing it for the last 10 years or so with NO input from any of the others apart from my mate Dave K. The new regime (excluding Dave, Sue & Mick) don't seem to appreciate the work that I've been doing over the years to promote folkmob and in view of recent comments made by certain people and the draconian attitude of some of the self-appointed busy bodies I've decided to pack it all in and call it a day!
I have been attending Crayside folk on Mondays much more fun - and no committee!

I went to The Seven Stars last night with my mate Dave Kenningham. There was a music session organised by the kentish rock stars "Tone deaf Leopard" Quite a nice pub with friendly staff and punters. I met the famous Rafflesbear who I have known for a couple of years only from his posts on mudcat he turned out to be a really nice bloke called Richard and he and his wife Linda are the parents of Martin Neal formerly one half of that excellent Folk Duo NORCSALORDIE who are sadly no more! The session was pretty informal and everyone managed about four or five songs. Pete The Hat turned up at about 9.30 just in time to celebrate his non-birthday with some loverly cakes cooked by Linda "Mrs Bear".

Well another year over! Phew!!! It was quite eventful. We had a lot of great guest performers at the Tudor Barn, mainly thanks to Brian Bruce who took on the role of A&R man for the club during 2003. The acts that were special for me were Derek Brimstone, Ron Trueman-Border, John Barden, Bill Gardener, Digable Cat, Joe Bouzouki and I mustn’t forget that wonderful exotic dancer who performed at Dave kenningham’s 50th Birthday party!
A group of Folkmobbers went to The Canterbury Fayre festival in August. This was a great event bringing together classic acts spanning five decades, including Arthur Lee & Love, Robert Plant, Mike Heron, Nick Turner, John Otway, and Roy Harper. What a pity it was the last one.
Linda Smith & Dave Bryant hosted two wonderful musical garden parties, that were well attended by folk musicians from near and far. The star performers though were a herd of feral parakeets leaping from tree to tree!
There were two camping weekends at Knockholt. 134 people attended the first one in June!!! That must be a record. It was a special 10th anniversary event and the weather was fantastic. Dave Bryant brewed a special “Knockholt knockout” ale and special guests Joe Bouzouki & The Missing Puddings played an acoustic set around our campfire. The September camp was a lot quieter but still enjoyable – I just love that steak & ale pie served at The Tally Ho.
Members of the FolkMob continued to support other musical ventures throughout the year, including: Performers night at Mycenae House every Monday, Jazz, Blues & Beyond at The White Swan every Friday, Jennifer’s Club at The Alma, Johnny Phelps’ nights at The Monty Club in Eltham and of course Alec and his band The Greenwich Traditional Musicians every Tuesday at The Cricketers.
New in 2003 we saw: the opening of Oliver’s Bar in Greenwich a great little downstairs venue providing live Jazz & Blues four nights a week; The Beacon in Hayes which has a super session once a month hosted by our old friends Walking The Witch.
There were also some goodbyes – notably our old mate Nigel Saunders, who ran off to Australia to seek his fortune – good luck Nige. The Duke Of Edinburgh in Lee seems to have died off – never was the same since Sheila & Brian went. The Anchor in Lewisham also fizzled out. Dorothy “Call me Dee” finally left The White Swan. She may have been a miserable old bag, but she did more for live music than any other Landlord that I know of in the borough of Greenwich. The final death knoll for The Guildford Arms, which was transformed from a little run down back street boozer, that played host to the Folkmob most weekends, into a trendy (upmarket?) wine bar & restaurant full of snoots.
Seems like a lifetime ago!

Went to the May Fayre at Eltham Well Hall yesterday. A few of my Folkmob friends were performing, so I brought Lucien with me. What could be a great local event is spoilt by money grabbing scumbags who were out to make a quick buck at our expense. The first one I encountered was charging £2 a go on some crap bouncy castle. the woman in front of me handed £8 to this bloke and her 4 little kids went on this piece of rubbish for what must have been 30 seconds before they got fed up and jumped off. I paid him £2 thinking that this would be for a long go on the piece of inflated plastic. "5 minutes only" said the scum. Give me my money back you thieving bag of crap! said I, and count yourself lucky that my grandson is with me, or I would have punched you on your criminal type hooter!
Then I was charged £1,50 for a crappy little doughnut - you know those little ones with icing sugar on that cost about 20p in Sainsbury! Then £2 for a little bottle of fruit Shoot, these are 8 for £2 in Sainsbury
FAMILY FUN day - yes lots of fun for the crooked bastards raking in the money! But not much fun for a young family struggling on income support I'm sure!
Yes this is our wonderful Greenwich socialist Council that allow these criminals to exploit the poor and the sad thing is that nobody complains!

"Every moment of his reign was polluted by cruelty and avarice. The Catholics of Alexandria and Egypt were abandoned to a tyrant, qualified , by nature and education, to exercise the office of persecution."
– Edward Gibbon (The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, 23)
The mention of an unnamed martyr of Nicomedia by Eusebius seeded The Myth that was to become St George, though there is no evidence whatsoever that such a character ever existed!
The ‘real' George was rather different than the one portrayed in popular English Christian fiction. As Gibbon and others made clear, ‘St. George’ was a legendary accretion around a notorious 4th century bishop, George of Cappadocia (in modern Turkey). Even the Catholic Encyclopedia of saints concedes that the story was borrowed from some incidents involving the treacherous Turkish despot.
The future archbishop of Alexandria began his career as a money lender in Cilicia, Southern Turkey. By ‘assiduous flattery’ or other means he acquired the contract to supply the Roman army with bacon.
"His employment was mean; he rendered it infamous. He accumulated wealth by the basest arts of fraud and corruption; but his malversations were so notorious, that George was compelled to escape from the pursuits of justice."
Edward Gibbon (The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, 23)
Making his way to Palestine, George set himself up in the religion business at Diospolis , where he became a profane grandee of the ruling Arians. As a wealthy and influential opponent of the Catholics he was well-placed to take the bishop’s chair in Alexandria when Athanasius was driven into exile.
In his new lofty station George gave free reign to his greed, corruption and cruelty, establishing several commercial monopolies and pillaging the ancient temples.
"The tyrant…oppressed with an impartial hand the various inhabitants of his extensive diocese,"
Edward Gibbon (The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, 23)
.So incensed were the inhabitants that on at least one occasion George was expelled from Alexandria by a mob and troops had to be deployed to get him back into the bishop’s palace.
His end came with the elevation of Emporor Julian. The angry pagans of Alexandria (probably aided by Catholics) took their revenge on George by throttling the bishop and dumping his body in the sea. It seems highly probable that some supporters of the murdered bishop recovered what they claimed to be remnants of the erstwhile bishop and made off with them to the nearest centre of Arianism, Lydda in Palestine. Emperor Julian himself sequestered the extensive library which George had acquired.
Yet the notorious prelate was to achieve a nobility in death which had been denied to him in life. The family of George built him a tomb and a church to house it at Lydda, and the shrine soon attracted a profitable traffic in pilgrims. At the same time, in the mid years of the 4th century, the hierarchy of the church had been seriously alarmed by the apostasy of Emperor Julian (360-363) and a resurgent paganism. His brief reign had threatened their but recently gained temporal power and the hierarchs were desirous of every possible device to prevent such a calamity again.
The Catholic Church was more than prepared to overlook George's heretical and criminal past. The ‘official’ legend of St George was created to symbolize the complete and irreversible victory of Christianity over paganism. Hence the image of St. George as a fearless warrior, defeating enemies of the faith by Christian forbearance, no matter what trials were to be overcome. In many of the ‘traditions’ the climax of the story actually has George smashing pagan idols.
Evidently the George cult spread outwards from Palestine. In the late 6th century two churches were identified in Syria with inscriptions indicating the veneration of a martyr called "Georgios". By then, the venality of George's real life had either been forgotten or merely white-washed. Thanks to the creative scribblers for Christ two hundred years later, his name was attached to a colourful story of piety, fortitude, divine deliverance and – ultimately – a princess and a dragon.
"This odious stranger disguising every circumstance of time and place, assumed the mask of a martyr, a saint, and a Christian hero, and the infamous George of Cappadocia has been transformed into the renowned St. George of England, the patron of arms, of chivalry, and of the Garter."
Edward Gibbon (The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, 23)
Quite a success story for an unmitigated rogue – and bacon salesman.

One of the greatest injustices of the 20th Century. Back in 1967 a young Irish scientist named Jocelyn Bell whilst studying at Cambridge was anylising data from metres of pen-graph wave observation printouts produced by a radio telescope array which she had physically built with help from other students over a two year period. She noticed a strange blip the other researchers had ignored. She brought this to the attention of her superiors and was told "just interference from pirate radio stations" She peruaded them to allow her to investigate further and after many sleepless nights and hours spent analysing more printouts and comparing results with another nearby radio telescope, she discovered what we now know as PULSARS her superiors laughed at her at first "Little Green Men" they sniggered refused to allow her to publish. Later after she had discovered 3 more pulsars they realised she was on to something and published a paper in Nature magazine!
In 1974 Antony Hewish & Martin Ryle received the Nobel prize for physics Jocelyn wasn't even mentioned! The pompous wanker Hewitt said in a BBC interview something to the effect of "It's like a ship on a voyage of discovery, any of the crew can shout "Land Ho!" but it's the captain of the ship who discovered it! - I am the captain - Jocelyn was just crew doing her job" How can this sort of bollox be allowed to happen? We must petition the Nobel prize people to put things right!

When I was 16 I started going to this pub in Blackfriars Road called "The King's Head" This place was famous amongst hippies & rockers from all over London for playing continuous "spaced out" music at high volume with full psychedelic, liquid light shows on all the interior walls of the pub. The place used to get packed solid every Friday and Saturday night. All the walls were plain whitewash so as to maximise the lighting effects. The music was fantastic ranging from Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come through Blue Cheer, High Tide, The Pink Faries, Hendrix, T2, Pretty Things! Friday night at "The King's Head" was where the weekend began. At closing time we would cross the road and jump on a 63 bus to King's Cross cinema for the Midnight to Six rock show, to see acts such as Hawkwind, The Pink Faries, MC5, The Pretty Things, Status Quo, Patto, The Stooges, Skid Row, JSD Band, Cockney Rebel, Kilburn & The High Roads! We would usually drift off in the morning to some cool pad such as the famous Larkhall Rise in Clapham where we would chill/crash out for a while, listening to more sounds and jamming with guitars before continuing our weekend boogey non-stop taking in another all-niter at The Lyceum followed by a lunchtime session at The Tally Ho in Kentish Town with live music from the likes of "Quiver" before finishing at The Roumdhouse on Sunday night! Then back to work Monday morning and that long wait 'til payday on Friday when it would all begin again! If there were funds available then few weekday gigs at The Marquee or Tally Ho didn't go amiss! Oh for those bygone years between 1971 to 1974,

What a cracking night at The British Oak last night! Many olsd and new faces including The Moldy Moldy Men, Salvator Piglet, Cellar Dweller,Bruise, and the illustrious former Atomic Rooster Axeman Steve Bolton! Thanks to the regulars who gave up their spots or played shorter sets than usual so that some of the newcomers could play - there were only a couple of people who didn;t get on - but hey, come on you have to get there early to guarantee a spot not 10pm! Well we had 23 performers in total - not bad at all! That's Steve Bolton & sarah in the picture.

This week I've been up in Rugby at The Post Office training facility bashing away on a computer fot a few days.
£109 standard second class Euston to Rugby return on virgin trains - a joke. That Pilchard £Brantson character is laughing all the way to the bank at the expense of the British public. The thing is the bank is probably an offshore account where the grinning knight of the realm doesn't pay tax or put anything back into this country that he has leeched off for years, while his slaves slog themselves to death on minimum wages. To add insult to injury after paying £109 and seeing a poster "WiFi horspot" I checked out the small print andfound out that it costs £5 for an hour access!!! Taking the piss or what! Mind you if you pay £10 you get 24 hours - but that is valid for the next 24 hours only. That's OK if you are going to look at the internet for 24 continuous hours in a row on one of those great marathon 24 hour train journeys that are so common in the UK!!!
Anyway Mr Pilchard I hear you shat yourself that time in the hot air balloon and cryed like a big sissy cos you were scared - tosser!
See y'all soon folks!

We were talking about ocarinas last night. I remember old Bill Gardner used to carry one about, which he said he'd owned for over 50 years. He also told me that, although his one was ceramic, the original ones were made from dried out Sweet Potato! I have since found out that this is incorrect. Sweet Potato IS another name for an ocarina, because of it's similarity in shape. Here is a tutoral that shows you how to make one - If you have access to a kiln!

At the Star & Garter session last night we had two suprise guests - Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze) and Dennis Greaves (nine below zero) I think that it's fantastic that professional Rock Stars take the time to support local sessions!
Back to work on Monday! I've been off for nearly six weeks so it will be a shock to the system getting back into the routine of getting up at 4.30 every morning and commuting into the West End!

I ordered a RAM chip for my netbook and it was sent by my supplier via a bunch of cowboys called UPS It was fully trackable so I looked online and saw that it had arrived at their Dartford depot early Tuesday morning and had been sent out for delivery at 7.10am that morning. That's good I thought I can now upgrade my RAM and install Windows 7 on my netbook! No chance - after waiting all day I looked again online and it stated that my item had neen "missed" and would be delivered next day! Ha ha it's now Thursday and here's the travking record copied straight from their site:

The landlord is never there
The locals like to read old papers and smile
Some have dogs
"I'm just out to walk the dog luv, may be a while"
There are clean bogs
There are plugs
The amplifier fires up
My lager deserves a final sup
I need to learn driving
The folk club is thriving. The ceiling is bare
Lynne isn't there, Richard Russell is buzzing. Some good new faces appear
It's great to hear
The return of Gordon with his mandola and John Lee churning out musical waves on the hurdy gurdy. Welcome back also to Neil sporting a Flying Burrito Brothers T shirt!!!

I had a good birthday on Wednrsday, my head was still spinning the next day, but I managed to get to work OK. Bruise were very good at Folkmob and the beer was certainly flowing. As part of my new "get fit" regime I went swimming in the new Eltham Centre this morning. The water smelt bad of putrid human sweat. I noticed that the water was not chlorinated, so it must be a hotbed of bacteria and all sorts of infectious stuff.A load of schoolkids had just left the pool, so they had probably pissed in it as well, dirty little bastards. I didn't stay in there very long as the stench was overbearing. I think I will have to give up alcohol for a few weeks, I am getting to like it too much! I'm off work for a few weeks with jury service starting on 20th July. Not looking forward to commuting daily to Tthe Elephant & Castle.

The great SKY SAXON (later Sky Sunlight) leader of sixties psychedelic punk/garage band died aged 71 on Thursday 25th June 2009. His early song "Can't Seem To Make You Mine" was recently used on a TV ad ( don't know which one) but surely he will always be associated with that brilliant anthem "Pushin' To Hard"
I first came across Sky's music during the early seventies on Lenny Kaye's wonderful compilation NUGGETS. I then managed to get hold of some of the early Seeds albums including an original copy of WEB OF SOUND album on a stall in Portobello Market for 30P! Their early stuff was solid proto-punk but they later developed a more pastoral psychedelic sound and Sky in true weighed in fashion Sky went off his head and joined a hippie commune and changing his name from Saxon to Sunlight. During the Punk/New wave boom of the late seventies I remember buying a record by Sky Sunlight and The New Seeds - but for me he never recaptured that raw innocent sound of the early Seeds records.

On a completely different subject, I came across a strange phenomenon the other day called Quantum Lyman-Alpha Blobs - these are pulsating blobs of plama/matter about 8 quadzillion miles across and they are like huge jellyfish wandering around our universe zipping in and out of reality eating galaxies for breakfast. I looked through my telesope last night and saw one with it's hungry eye on me!

Did you know that in the whole universe there is only one electron. It zips from location to location in and out of reality and time. All of every thing is everything and nothing at the same time and time does not exist! Blimey where does that leave me?
Well I reckon that this particular quantum mechanical theory could be applied to the "soul" That would mean that there is actually only one "soul" in all of space and time and it zips instantaniously from person to person across time and space covering every human that ever lived or ever will be. This happens in a never ending continuum that takes less than billionth of quadrillionth of a nanosecond for each cycle. So that means that you are everybody. So you better be nice to your fellow man because he/she is, or will be you!!!

Enough is enough I said. I want to be able to wear normal clothes again. I don't want to die of a heart attack! I am now on a strict selective food regime. No cokes, cheese, white bread, red meat, eggs, potatoes, sweets etc. Lots of fish, salad, fruit & water, one or two cups of black coffee, occasional chicken breast, occasional slice of wholemeal. Now I do go out for a beer now and then, mainly Tuesday & Wednesday for the folk clubs. I am not going to be silly and not have a few pints - so those pub visits are excempt.
Since starting this on 28th March I am back down to 15½ stone and there's no stopping there my target is 12½ stone and hopefully be able to fit into a pair of Levi's again.

Why is everything crap? I went for an eye test a couple of weeks ago and picked up the new glasses the other day - I couldn't see through the things! "you're not used to them yet" said the woman on the phone "wear them for a week and see how you get on" If I wore those things for a week I would have been blind by now. I brought them back and asked for a re-test - these tests cost £28! The optician said "oh dear those glasses are wrong, sorry we are crap, I'll order another pair" £425 spent and they got it wrong - crap opticians D&A Eltham. Later that day I went down to PC world and bought a laptop for my daughter. the spec looked good on the Advent 6552 so I handed over £400 and took it home and presented it to Sarah. All was going well until she unplugged the USB card after transfering some photos - as she pulled it from the USB slot the computer screen went blank. The laptop was dead and would not power up again. I brought it back and they gave me another one - guess what! The thing worked fine until she once again transfered her photos and pulled the card from the socket - it died! Back to PC World I trotted. Whats going on? This computer is a pile of poo" said I "yes, I know we are a crap store and we sell poop" said the assistant. "Well you can take this pile of poop back and give me an HP laptop instead" said I. The HP is working fine to date touch wood

This bloke is the "parish priest" that has decided to close down the Monty Club in Eltham! The twisted bigot has treated some of the hardest working, charitable and kindest people that I have ever met, as if they were dog shit on his shoe. People who give up their free time every weekend to raise money for charity, who work hard unpaid for the parish year in year out! He couldn't even talk face to face - He instructed solicitors to do his mischief for him. I emailed him pleading for him to reconsider - he didn't even acknowledge me. Well his god is watching him and he will get what he desrves.
