Cliff Notes

I've been light on the blogging front recently, but i would have kicked myself if I hadn't made special mention of the fact that today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of The Redskins album, Neither Washington, Nor Moscow. Yes, I am apt to rip the piss of the SWP when the opportunity arises, and I've been known to mention Chris Dean's posho background in negative terms at the drop of the hat on this blog but for all that, I did bunk off school especially twenty years ago today to nip down to Our Price to buy the album on vinyl, and it's not often I can say that I bunked off School for a decent enough reason. (The only other time that springs to mind was when I had to nip down to Our Price to buy Orange Juice's In a Nutshell.

To mark the anniversary, Bazza's excellent Redskins fan site is offering up rare Redskins mp3s to download, and though the sound quality is not the greatest on some of the tracks they are still a must have.

Keep on, keepin' on.
