December 6, 2008

It’s been a busy week, a great week… catching up with friends, checking out stores, talking music and snowboarding, driving the car without any windscreen wipers when it’s pitch black and snowing, doing some mileage, pasting the hell out of as many stores as possible, drinking Irn Bru and mulled wine……
Yes I’ve been heading North!!!!
First stop, Detour in Bath to tweek the pasting we did a few weeks back and see how ‘old fixie’ was doing, kidnap her and run to Bonnie Scotland…..


Saw a tee that was wicked! and strangely familiar………can you see what it is yet?????


Manchester – There’s a new store you should check out in the Capital of England (MC Tunes) called Thomas St Post Office…they know their Shit from their Shizel….

Check it out by Night and Day….







Epic!!! Zane smashes it at the Firestation!!!!

December 2, 2008

Tinnitus….the funny ringing that’s been in my left ear for 16 years to the day from when Sir James Martin (Faith No More) went to work on stage with the amps set at 11 at the Glasgow Barrowlands and I was in the front line.

Those Glasgow gigs were good times….
Rage Against The Machine stopped their Barrowlands gig in ’93 because my mate John was getting trampled on by security after a bit of crowd surfing.

I lost one of my DC Syntax’s in the mental fight that was the mosh pit at the Prodigy, (Glasgow Green) but miraculously found it later on and then went to see Green Velvet take the Arches apart, with a muddy foot, before getting the first morning bus back to Edinburgh!!!!

Anyway, there’s nothing like being at the front at a gig when the music is off the scale and the crowd is going mental!!!!!
Saturday was brilliant, Zane smashed it at the Firestation in Bournemouth, in a nice jacket……..enough said!!!!!



As for Rage and the Prodigy…check out Zanes Masterpiece shows this week on Radio 1.
