    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Oil City Confidential Review

I was going to have a go myself but instead let me point you in the direction of Gart Cartwright’s excellent review in the Times which captures the film well.

Oil City Confidential

Not much time this morning. I was at the Glasgow Film Theatre last night. It was one of fifty venues chosen nationwide for a special screening of the new Julian Temple film about Dr Feelgood, and also in a large part about Canvey Island in Essex where the band members were brought up.The film was well worth the admission money, the live jam session afterwards beamed by satellite by Wilko Johnson and friends rather less so (although it did have its moments.)
