Astrophobia (J)...I miss you mate! This place has never been the same since you left. If by some chance you happen to read this, I hope you are well and doing good, and keeping floating above all the world negativity and seeming freefall downwards. Your pal, Nick.

Only just found out. He died on Saturday, aged 65. '(I'm) Stranded' released in 1976, was a great single, which I bought at the time and it really had an impact back then, helping get me into the whole punk 'thing'.

I would normally put this in single track of the day, or favourite music promo vids, but Killing Joke are worth a mention on their own and I know there are one or two fans here in DV...A storming new track from their forthcoming EP, released 25th March. Killing Joke still relevant...still moving forwards...still tackling the chaos head-on...still making great music. Killing Joke ~ Lord Of Chaos

This is outside the box of all things Bill Nelson, because we all love Bill, the man and his music, which is why we're all here in the first place, (obviously). But if you're ever feeling a little down and need a little instant lift in spirits, may I recommend listening to 'Zoom', by Fat Larry's Band........It worked for me the other day, eased a smile back on my face and put me back in forward gear......I hadn't heard this song for many a year, forgot about it really, to all intents and purposes, but what a (Christmas) cracker it is!...played it again just now, and instant smile back on mush. So a Happy New Year 2022 to Bill and Jon and crew and all here at Dreamsville, and Zoom, onwards and upwards!..😎😍

Just learned today the sad news that Mensi of the Angelic Upstarts has passed away (yesterday, I believe) aged 65, after a recent battle with Covid. Can't imagine too many people here being into the Upstarts, I can only think of myself and Radium Girl, but they were a great band back in the day, an anti-fascist/working class punk band formed in South Shields in 1977, who had some powerful songs and were always good live. 'I'm An Upstart' remains a punk classic........other songs of note include, 'The Murder Of Liddle Towers', 'Teenage Warning', 'Police Oppression', 'Leave Me Alone', 'Never 'Ad Nothing' Mensi, far left ...always loved the band logo, and the cover art for this single It was of it's time, of course it was, but that's how it was always meant to be! I'm An Upstart still sounds fresh and vibrant today, and, in this case, is still relevant.

It's an album I don't see mentioned too much here in Dreamsville..Jon, Alec, Steve and myself have given it praise, and that's ok to all the others that have not (and apologies to those that have, that I haven't mentioned)..it's all about personal connection. The reason I mention this?..well, my very favourite BN albums include Sailor Bill(#1), Golden Melodies, Stereo Star Maps, Dreamland To Starboard, Dazzlebox, Gleaming, Return To Jazz Of Lights, Rosewood(1), Mazda...I'd better leave it there, or there will be a list of 20, lol....But, I find myself going back to Lamplighter, time and time again. I'm listening right now...my family are all safely sleeping, I'm still up burning the candle, habit of a lifetime, understanding and forgiving woman in my life (I'm so lucky), totally relaxed, a few Jonnie Walker Green Labels, all's well with the world...at least until we watch the news tonight. Point is, the more I listen to this wonderful album, the more I fall in love with it...It's actually competing with Sailor Bill😲.....sometimes I think it might be my favourite Bill Nelson album. ...And!...any Be Bop fans that haven't jumped into Bill's solo recordings, well, that's fine too, but if you're looking for mind-blowingly fabulous guitar work, please try this album...Fantastically haunting, always touching the melancholy, reaching back to something we once knew, but definitely a firm message for the here and now!............gloriousness...It's superb!! Any thoughts???

A nice visualization of our solar system, and good fun too. In this interactive demo, the Moon is one pixel across and everything else is scaled to that, including the distances between planets. Get ready to scroll. A lot. If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel ...just use right and left arrow keys accordingly.

Quite a few will, no doubt, have seen this photograph, but I hadn't (as far as I can remember) until recently. Thought it was worth putting up on the forum and it's a fabulous shot.

Ok, everyone's having a pretty tough time right now, and it's nice when random small things can come along and help lift your spirits. Here's a new upload from the legendary Louie Shelton, a fantastic guitar player who's history and pedigree needs no introduction...He's playing Michael Jackson's 'Rock With You' and if this doesn't ease a nice smile back on your weary mush!?...……..great playing, and a little soul restoration.

Bill, I know you are somewhat a fan of Blur and admire Damon Albarn (and rest of band), as talented musicians and songwriters, a group with quite a unique vision. I have already put a thread up in The World Outside The Window regarding this next bit, which is about Joan Wasser, A.K.A. Joan As Police Woman and her soon to be released new album. It's an album of other peoples songs, and this is the second time she's done such a venture. This new album looks to have a fantastic and eclectic mix of material on it, and one of the songs is her version of Blur's 'Out of Time', which just happens to be one of my favourite Blur songs. This made a connection to you, remembering previous ( if somewhat sketchy in my mind now) comments you have made in the past regarding Blur, and got me wondering if you like Joan As Police Woman as a recording artist and have any thoughts regarding her work at all?...I can't remember you having made any comments about her before. She is one of my favourite artists that's for sure and her own work and compositions are truly unique and wonderful....So, I would be interested to know your thoughts, and forum members too. Here is the Joan As Police Woman version of 'Out Of Time', a track she has put up on YouTube herself as a sample, to help promote this new album. ..oh heck, I can't resist, here are a couple of old favourites of mine, just for good measure, that I hope you might enjoy:

I'm a massive fan and am super excited about her new (and imminent) album. I put her tracks up on the old forum several times and this new album looks very interesting..a fantastic mix of songs. Quote: 'Joan As Police Woman returns with her new album Cover Two out on May 1st 2020. This is Joan’s second album reinterpreting songs by other artists and once again, the choices are unpredictable and intriguing.' Pre-order here, if you're interested: https://joanaspolicewoman.com/merch/cover-two/ Here's the tracklist: Kiss (Prince) Spread (Outkast) Under Control (The Strokes) Not The Way (Cass McCombs) I Keep Forgettin’ (Michael Macdonald) Life’s What You Make It (Talk Talk) Out of Time (Blur) On The Beach (Neil Young) There Are Worse Things I Could Do (Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs) Running (Gil Scott-Heron) ...and here's a taster, her interpretation of Blur's 'Out of Time'...and it's magnificent!

What a complete and utter twat!....A total hypocrite...an absolute idiot. Talk about double standards....."Do as I say and not as I do"....Shame on you, Calderwood! https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/apr/05/scotland-chief-medical-officer-seen-flouting-lockdown-advice-catherine-calderwood &: https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/5460581/coronavirus-scotland-catherine-calderwood-chief-medic-covid-19/ Here she is, visiting her second-home, for the second time in the last ten days, full family in tow, happily flouting her own, and her governments strict advice and guidance, in which she has played a major part in delivering to the general public, as if she doesn't have a care in the world. She's been seen alongside Nicola Sturgeon a lot in the last couple of weeks on Scottish national TV, hammering home the message about staying at home and avoiding all unnecessary travel of any kind, including to second homes (for any high-flyers that might have a few extra homes knocking about), and is even the face/voice of a national public information film driving home the same message. Quite unbelievable...one of those things that makes your blood boil really, especially as the vast majority of ordinary decent people seem to be adhering to this crucial advice and exercising common sense and restraint i.e. following the rules, and staying at home! It would appear Sturgeon is standing by her, deflecting the flack, and letting her keep her position (i.e. looking after their own), albeit from probably much more of a backroom position from now on..(at least until all the fuss 'blows over'.) FFS, if you can't lead by example in times like these...her hypocritical and dangerous behaviour and flagrant flouting of the rules, twice!, should not be tolerated by anyone in these current times and I think she should go. Well, just as I'm about to post this, I can hear on 'News at 10' that Calderwood has in fact resigned her position. Wonder if she would have done so had she not been caught on camera??...yeah, right.
