"I don't care, when they stare, at the way that I'm always with you we're a pair, it's not fair when they say we're a special brew! woh woh woh woh ."

Well, here I am back from Norfolk with an empty wallet, extreme tiredness and germs caught from my Niece and Nephew. Still it was nice to actually get out and about and see the old crapholes again. Lots of ghosts of the past which no longer exists. The only problem I have with Norfolk is the fact that it's so far away and I have to travel for a minimum of four and a half hours to get there. Still, I went all sorts of places and spent my hardly earned spondoolicks. The funny thing was that due to all the car boot sales and shops I went to I ended up having to buy a new holdall to bring it all back (vinyl will be ripped for your delight asap). I travelled to Great Yarmouth which is somewhere I hadn't been for twenty years or so. It pretty much is the same as it ever was although if you try to walk on the pier you'll get wet as it burnt down or something (witchcraft according to the locals). Speaking of witchcraft I wasn't as I first thought burnt at the stake for having a PSP and laptop with me. Still I met up with and old friend or two, we had a good old chinwag about the past and maybe one day I'll go back, who knows? To Norfolk not the past. I must say that despite all my reservations about visiting the place I am looking forward to going back... My god I'm sicker than I thought. Mind you the last time I came back from holiday a week later I was out of work so I should be grateful I've only come away with flu this time. (Don't read this too close to the screen as I may get you ill). I did like my mates mobile home though in fact I wouldn't mind one myself and despite my reservations it didn't look like a Star Trek Shuttle pod after all... well not on the outside anyway ;)
Anyway enough old bollocks here's the music. Firstly I've uploaded The Brit Box which is the dogs bollocks as far as I'm concerned just look at the track listing in the comments. Also there's Connected/12"s 90's which has a great track listing too. That's it for now I'll upload a load of vinyl what I've been doing in the next post

mac ... when I went to school Scotland ,Wales and a bit of Ireland were in Britain. Has this changed ?

Of course it has, most things you would have learnt in school have since been proved wrong. Except the troll language, that's still bang-on.
