    Not a clever move!!

    Blackpool had to apologise to Bradford City after yesterday's match over their pre-match choice of music. Billy Joel's 'We didn't start the fire' was perhaps a little insensitive in the circustances!

    Have you been to Shrewsbury?

    Next away match Shrewsbury have you been there previously? My first visit was 27th October 1973, it was in the days of no organised transport and getting there was very expensive until we found a "Merrymaker" excursion. These were cheap trips aimed at families to visit places of historic...

    A Cultural Review 2015

    I haven't seen many films this year - so it's been a year of new podcasts, new books, new TV shows and new music. New podcasts: Lore has been interesting - a bi-weekly investigation of myths/ No Such Thing as a Fish - funny at times, fascinating in others - produced by the team behind QI...

  7. Late(st) Supporters Forum update

    A couple of weeks back I promised a report back from the latest Supporters Group Forum meeting, apologies for it taking so long but things have been a bit hectic and time has been at premium, anyway I’ve now managed to find a couple of hours spare, so here goes. Hope you've got a couple...

    Monday Night Noxious Club

    At the risk of upsetting Berrichonne Shrimper with my unfettered ego, I'd like to tell you about a radio show that I'm kicking off tomorrow night on The Source 96.1FM. As TravelZoners will know, I like to get a bit of Shrimpers-related stuff into my public service broadcasting and I hope to find...

    iPad Advice

    I'm looking at buying an iPad to use instead of my phone at home (bigger!) and to take on holiday and maybe read books on it. I have an iPhone & iPod, so this seems natural and sensible keep it in the family, especially backing up my music. I will only use with WiFi, so a sim card is...

    Help wanted - iPod or other MP3?

    Morning chaps, any thoughts/advice on the following? I have had a 30gb iPod for about 10 years, and it is now giving up the ghost. I think I have managed to copy all the songs from it to my laptop, but looking at replacements, they no longer sell the classic iPods, only the iPod Touch, which I...

    James Bond (Spectre Soundtrack)

    I've mentioned on here a couple of times that I've been trying to tempt Pinewood with a couple of tracks for the Spectre theme tune. I'm not in the music business and I don't have many contacts but I wrote and produced both tracks and did ultimately manage to get the first one (00 Inside) in...
  12. Essex Boys

    Hi all, With the summer break dragging, and not much on here aside from 47 pages of chat about kits, thought I'd take the chance to post a link to a song my dad has written. He's been a Shrimper for decades and is getting back into his music as he gets closer to retirement - got to have...

    The Invasion of Gillingham - another short story

    Another fictional short story based on fact. Yes we did take 2,000 fans to Gillingham in 1921, yes we did take seven boat loads etc, only the names of the individuals are fictional. Not for everyone I know, but for those that wade through it this story is a tribute to your parents...

    What Gets Your Musical Juices Flowing and Why?

    Simple really. What's your favorite style/genre of music and why. For me it's grown remarkably the past few years. Being an old soul boy I have always loved the jazz funk, soul and dance anthem classics from the late 70's, 80's and 90's but now being involved heavily in the local Internet radio...

    More local restaurant reviews.....

    IL Torrente, Benfleet. Food OK but overpriced and I think they are trying to cash in on an upmarket South Benfleet clientele. They didn't have Amaretto which is odd for an Italian restaurant and I saw them make an Irish coffee and stir the cream in. Don't think they will be around long unless...

  20. Roots Hall 1971

    Hello, My Son-in-Law is researching the history of music in Essex, and wonders if anyone remembers or has photographs of a concert which took place at Roots Hall in July 1971? It featured Yes, Atomic Rooster and Mott The Hoople, amongst others. Do you know why it was held? Also, has the...
