Marmite strikes back

marmite strikes backThey come over here with their Danegeld , their silver nosed astronomers, their imaginative story tellers, their pioneering brewers and lurpak and try to stop us importing Marmite!!! What's wrong with vitamins, bits of dead yeast and some salt ay Mr & Mrs Viking?

 Well the fight back starts here! Give me Marmite or give me.... erm Marmalade or some of that nice black currant jam your Mum makes.....

Calling all book lovers:

Looks like we got us a reader....
I'm sort of assuming if your reading this you like reading (really what's not to like) . Well if you live anywhere near North London you should check out the Stoke Newington Literary Festival coming up at the start of June. (full disclosure) it is run by 2 of my oldest friends but I think the quality of line up stands up by itself.
There's a whole series of talks on music  including Ska, there's loads of kids events this year, Stuart Lee, Stella Duffy, Rowland Rivron & Alexei Sayle all sorts of people you've heard of and some you haven't but will soon. It's all run by volunteers including myself hopefully. So book early and book often.

Me! The very generous Morgan Howell from Super Size Art ran a competition on Twitter and I won this excellent print. Sorry it's not the best photo but basically Morgan paints large versions of classic vinyl not pristine box fresh records but the sort of bent and creased singles all us vinyl addicts have boxes of. check out their website for better pics
