Out of the Blue I had a nice email from a young lady called Roberta (do you remember that GREAT Frankie Ford song of the same name?) about her band Curxes. (She sent the same to Mick). Incidentally she works in PIE & VINYL. Not been yet? Get down there. Great pies, lots of vinyl, good coffee, very nice people, surprise events (Castle Road):
“I am contacting you just to say how useful I’ve found the ‘Portsmouth Music Scene’ section of the site when researching Portsmouth venues from the second world war, so I wanted to say thank you. I recently completed an animation for my band which features buildings from the Blitz juxtaposed with some of the more familiar places in Portsmouth & Southsea now and thought you might be interested to see it (regardless of the wailing and synthesizers, haha).”

What’s absolutely delightful and just right for us is the animation – especially for the mushes. Kids fighting against a spinning backdrop of great 45s, record sleeves and Pompey Buildings.
