Due to improvements in software, and the necessity of being able to access websites on the move via mobile phones and tablets etc.,  we have to migrate to a newer  format. This means we have call in the builders because the pages will get knocked about a bit in transit. We shall try and minimise the disruption but if you encounter pages that seem a bit, er, all over the place, then please come back a bit later and hopefully they'll be sorted! Thank you for your patience

The builders are Coming!

January 2015

Yes, they're here... and like all builders they've got big muddy feet... and they're trampling everything underfoot. We're trying our best to put it right, so please bear with us. Techies have been contacted & recruited and have joined the slave task force all toiling to try and sort out this mess... And when we're back on our feet again, we're hoping to have some amazing news for you. Right now, shhhh, it's a secret....

August 2015

For the last... well, since February last year I've been working on a book about Redcar Jazz Club, culturally a very important venue in the North east of England, whose golden years coincided with that explosively innovative golden decade of the 60s.

    While we put an astronaut on the moon who took a small step for man, but a huge step for mankind, down here we were taking a few steps of our own...  Everything in England's youth culture underwent a comprehensive overhaul as teenagers fought, screamed and danced their way out of the drab post-war years.  Clothes, music, haircuts, entertainment venues, films... and most of all, attitudes.
