Brighton Celtic Supporters Club used tae show the matches at a boozer called The Lectern - but no sure if thats still the venue they use.    ;)

Goat absolutely hammered drunk in a boozer called The Basket Weaver yin time.  Wis a decent gaff fae ma limited memories ay the place.

Brighton Celtic Supporters Club show the games in Molly Malone's in West Street now, I believe

I've been "tired & emotional" after an evening in The Basketmakers Arms once or twice myself  ;) :o

Saw this last night at The Duke Of Yorks in Brighton with a live link to the Q&A at the BFI

Thoroughly enjoyable evening & Mr Micklewhite is still a great raconteur !

Nice one mate. Sounds decent. I don't know him really but see Lucas about at stuff over here quite a bit. He is a sharp young lad who has tons of idea compared to many blokes who've supposedly been into this stuff for 30 years. Glad you enjoyed it.

Dependin' oan the topics covered The Chap kin be a decent read - if a wee bit pricey.

Need tae be able tae ignore aw the fannies dressed up as characters fae Ealing Comedies that infest its pages tho'.

That's no way to describe my dear friends at JtG ;)

That Searchers re-issue was given a glowing review in Shindig!

I'm a bit miffed that the SOHO jazz series is now being issued on CD with loads of extra tracks.  I bought them on vinyl and I feel a bit cheated!  >:(
On the jazz front there's the upcoming comp Martin Freeman And Eddie Piller Present Jazz On The Corner.  Both CD and vinyl have same track listing  ;D

DITTO fella !!!!

The latest Mojo has the Jam on the front and covers the " rebirth of Mod" , which of course has never really went away since. .

For some on here it will cover that period of time when one became captivated by the emerging Mod scene and for that reason it is worth a buy . Some good pictures in it too . .

I was interviewed for this (about my recollections of seeing The Jam at The Embassy Cinema, Brighton in April 1977) but unfortunately my contribution failed to make the final cut.

BTW, I've always thought that "To love somebody" lends itself particularly well to soul vocalists, as the Nina Simone's cover aptly shows.

Now, to the "new" PP Arnold's album review...

If I remember correctly Barry & Robin Gibb wrote "To Love Somebody" (at the request of Robert Stigwood) for Otis - But he tragically died before having a chance to record the song.
