LAA Contingency Arrangements Survey 

We have had a few calls regarding this survey: It certainly seems more about information gathering than “seeking views” hence the unease it has caused.

I have a Sandy Denny day once a year, usually in autumn to reflect the mood of most of her writing. No one since has sung like her. This is one of the few live recordings and seems apt.


I heard this for the first time in ages yesterday, probably my favourite Weller song, and what a performance. Missing live music “so bad”.

Anthropic (Cold Times)

Holy Show 

Out of the blue two exceptional albums arrived this week; the glorious “Shore” by Fleet Foxes and “In Waiting” the stunning debut from Pillow Queens. Given the latter more need the career defining boost gifted to a JRS Friday Song here they are.
