    "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."

Deep Blue

I was originally only going to one Blue Nile Show in Glasgow this week (on Friday). However my friend Steve from Stockport in Cheshire having demurred initially on travelling (“I’ll leave it Rab – they’re bound to do Manchester”) realised his error and bought me a ticket for the show tonight (Wednesday) in return for airport transfers and a kip for the night. We shall spend the day limbering up for the gig and look forward to meeting our German friends Marc and Andrea as well as any other familiar faces we encounter in the afternoon.

In celebration here are The Blue Nile from 1996 on Jools Holland playing Tinseltown in the Rain.
