No really mod related, but if embdy likes thir crime fiction ah kin recommend "The Way of All Flesh" by Ambrose Parry.

"Ambrose Parry" bein' a pen name fur the joint efforts ay Christopher Brookmyre (author ay "Quite Ugly One Morning" n' aw the other Jack Parlabane novels n' also a St Mirren fan - so he probably shares pedallin' duties wi' Mr Bond ay this parish oan the Buddies supporters tandem travellin' tae away games) wha' has co-authored it wi' his missus (an anaesthetist by trade).

Set in Embra in 1847 when anaesthesia wis in it's experimental stages a young trainee doctor gets tae wonderin' aboot a series ay deaths involvin' young women.

Yin ay the characters always well dressed n' a bit ay a dandy - so there's yir (very tenuous) mod connection.

Ah'll say nae mair than that, but it's a good read.

Thanks for the heads up, Laird ... I just love Brookmyre's work (especially the Angelique de Xavia novels)

The performance art bank robbery sequence to the musical accompaniment of Madness' "One Step Beyond" and SAHB's "Faith Healer" in his "The Sacred Art of Stealing" is one of my favourite pieces of writing (about time someone made it into a film IMHO)

I have met Brookmyre a couple of times , usually when he was sitting on the back of the tandem going to away games . He is a man of few words l suppose because he has written all of his down , and I didn't know his wife was an anaesthetist , as far as l knew she still believed in God. .
" A Big Boy Did It and Ran Away " remains my personal Brookmyre favourite and for some reason the title always makes me think of the Laird. .

His kid and mine went to the same nursery. You're right,he's a quiet guy for sure. Been to a reading of his many years ago also.

You're also right about his wife being scared of spiders!

Pocket Guide to Mod by Smiler. Got this yesterday & read it already. Excellent read full of great reminiscences including forum member Martin G.

He's ubiquitous this guy...sure I just saw him on the Modcast Christmas cruise on youtube earlier!  ;)
