Bore da, and a very Happy New Year to yas. A little late, granted, but it’s still January and I have the excuse of having had one of those nasty bugs that were doing the rounds. Poor Mickey. I was going to say “Hey, that’s Christmas over for another seven months, the Easter eggs are in the shops and they’re trying to sell us summer* holidays.” (*Summer; expand your vocabulary, look it up). Going to. You know… because the ads for it always start appearing by August, so I was having a pop at the greedy bastard capitalists who aren’t yet satisfied with the current levels of global bankruptcy. But this year they’ve gone even further, I’ve ALREADY seen an advert in a TV mag. January 15th. For next Christmas. 344 days to go. Fucking insanity. Insert rant of your choice here, I really can’t be bothered with it any more and hereby tender my resignation from the human race.

Once again, I find myself in Neil Crud’s debt, he seems to have managed to galvanise me into action when all else had failed. I mean, when he invited me to do a blog for link2wales a month ago, there was nothing more than a holding page on my website, The Magic Net. And that had sat there, all alone, for some eight months. But now, a mere month later, and I’ve added over 20 pages of content! It’s party time here again, we’ve wound up the gramophone and we’re stage-diving off the coffee table into a pile of slightly soiled copies of the Radio Times. It’s rock & roll, I just don’t care, sometimes I even slip off to bed without my Horlicks. Bring it on.

Ooh, this is quite exciting really, my very first blog. Nobody’s ever asked me to do a blog before. Which makes you wonder why they’ve asked me to do it now? My guess would be they feel sorry for me. I mean, me, what a fucking has-been. It’s been 16 years since my band’s (Magic Moments At Twilight Time) last album (“Creavolution”) [pic below], but I do intend to make some new music. Soon. Honestly. Not that the band was what I was really best known for anyway, that would have been the Music & Elsewhere underground music label.
