Books and other printed media / Richard Thompson

Maybe of interest for those of us lovers of ancient, arcane music. I plan to read it back to back with Iain Matthews recent memoirs for a contrasting perspective:

Maybe a bit late to recommend a Christmas gift, but this could do the trick. Possibly THE jazz book of the year ( self-present to me, btw  ;D):

Banter / ... And today
« on: October 30, 2020, 06:30:36 PM »
To come full circle, Mo commissions me to post a couple recent pics of him. As you can see, his keen sartorial instincts haven't vanished, not to mention his music tastes  8):

Banter / Mod/Suedehead scene mid 80s...
« on: October 30, 2020, 06:21:10 PM »
On behalf of fellow forumee Mo, who obviously didn't attend my "Uploading Pics" course  ;), I'm posting here some photographs of his adventures as a young mod (and later, suede) from 1985 on, hoping he later comments on them:

General music chat / Elvis

Not easy to choose a favourite album by someone as talented and prolific as Elvis Costello, but if forced to do it it'd be "Armed Forces". If you agree with me and have some bucks to spend this could be an essential purchase:

Mod fashion and style / Daisies dresses
« on: August 15, 2020, 06:08:43 PM »
A heads-up for Becky and the ladies' members(if there is any). I came across this seller in a Facebook 60s group and thought their dresses are quite classy (and affordable) Beck, I guess you know them, but just in case: https://m.facebook.com/daisiesdresses/photos/a.1989098484639818/2709281285954864/?type=3&source=48&ref=bookmarks

Books and other printed media / Stones photies
« on: June 24, 2020, 12:28:16 PM »
More 60s Rolling Stones images? Not an original concept, to put it mildly, but this one at least seems to be quite interesting on several grounds: there's a unifying idea behind (the Stones at their current homes), most pics have been unissued until now, '66 means the band at their youthful peak and Gered Mankowitz was possibly the best photographer the band had. One for the list:

One of the truly greats of British R&B and psychedelia, rock music royalty, has left us. RIP, Phil May.

Websites and Links / Giro '62

Interesting initiative by cycling wear brand Rapha to commemorate the Italian race that should have begun this month. They go back to the 1962 Giro to do a day-to-day reprise of that race. Some nice trivia for cycling buffs (hey, mr. Bond), not least the pics of the riders wearing several stunning "maglias":

The feature is obviously related to the promotion of a Rapha-published book about Franco Balmamion, the guy that won that Giro's edition, a book that looks interesting too for fans of the Golden Age of cycling:

Just pre-ordered this one, after seeing it mentioned in Dave's MC site. It's going to be a long wait and it isn't cheap so I hope it's worthy:
