Victorious Saturday

Here’s a Drumming Dragon

And a couple of Long Legged Ladies

A promise for tomorrow afternoon: Seaside Stage at 2pm


My favourite music today – Neneh Cherry DJ/Toasting etc “Uptown Top-Ranking”

(There’s rather a lot of 1999-sounding electric guitar bands for my taste, but lots of good stuff in the World Music Village.)


Send them Victorious

SATURDAY Southsea Skiffle Orchestra 12.30 (lunchtime) on the World Village Stage (on the Golf Course, by the main entrance)

SUNDAY Aubrey Small also at 12.30pm in the Real Ale tent (by the D Day Museum)

See the 60s never die! Play Up Pompey!

Tuxedo Junction

The “lads” are doing their thing this coming Sunday afternoon at Bar 69 in Palmerston Road, Southsea, 2—5pm.
Thereon in the evening at The Ferryboat Inn, Hayling Island, 7—10pm. It’ll be a bit of a rush combining the two but we’re young enough (???).
The usual eclectic selection of toons plus a few newies for your delight, should be a good day !
If you can’t make either of those 2, the following Friday (Sep 2nd), it’s that intimate but fun venue The Auckland in Netley Road, Southsea.

It’s a Beautiful Day

It doesn’t take much to wake my inner hippy

This young man busks in Palmerston Road; his name is Charles and he sounds like those great guitar players from the late 1960s West Coast


We had a brief chat and he told me that he particularly loves the music of It’s a Beautiful Day. He was a bit surprised to learn that they played in Pompey a few years back (courtesy of the Spider Man) and enjoyed supper served at our place by MRA

He told me he’s in a band that are on Facebook. I thought he said they were called the Mudlarks – a good Pompey name – but I can’t find them there. I found an American band with that name but much older. I’ll look out for him again and check it out.

PS ‘Fossy’ found it (cheers):
