    "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."

Amy Winehouse

Want to know what? Amy Winehouse is brilliant. Despite her well publicised drug problems, her man in prison and disastrous stage shows this week (did she turn up in Glasgow?) Back to Black is one of the best albums of the last year or so. What about the lyrics on this?

I cheated myself
Like I knew I would
I told ya, I was trouble
You know that I'm no good

Upstairs in bed, with my ex boy                                                              
He's in the place, but I can't get joy                                        
Thinking of you in the final throes,

this is when my buzzer goes

  1. You are right, it is a fantastic album, helped in part by the introduction of Mark Ronson who along with the use of Sharon Jones backing band the Dap-Kings has given the sound a polished modern soul vibe.
    I first saw Amy supporting Jamie Cullum at King Tut's before Cullum went big and musically downhill, ie mainstream, Amy at this stage was being pushed towards a Billie Holiday jazz diva route, thankfully she has found her true musical soul, let's hope she can re-discover her own internal happiness or else she may end up just another music casualty.
