Still at home, still on the couch. This is shite. But I’m having proper food, talking to people etc, well done me (read that last bit in a really sarcastic Scottish voice).
Now onto Weir’s Way DVD box set #2, so today I was following the River Tay from Ben Lui’s coire through some very familiar landscape and always interesting history. As joyful as it was frustrating. Equally frustrating is that some test kit’s just come in from Leki, Smartwool and Mountain King. Add to that, the scene below is where I was standing exactly a year ago.
Help ma’ Boab.
Still, the umpteenth reissue of Black Sabbath’s Born Again album came in on Saturday and disc two has two songs I’ve never heard plus the live set they played at Reading Festival in ’83 as recorded by Radio 1 for the Rock Show, yes kids, Radio 1 Rock Show. This is good news, my 28 year old recorded off-air C90 cassette of the show has seen better days. Sabbath playing Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water and Ian Gillan screaming like a scalded cat with a clothes peg on its bollocks over 70’s Sabbath tunes has never lost any of its initial amazement for me.
