    "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."

Good friend and drummer Martin M and I caught up with some old friends at Glasgow’s UFO club on Friday night. Once described in a newspaper review as the ‘Highly irreverent Rev Doc and the Congregation’, they played a blistering set of jazzy blues for two and a half hours. As usual Doc’s playing owed more than a little to the black arts and guitarist Al Brown was in top form.

Here they are from a previous gig at the same venue.

Check out some more tracks at their website where I’ve just remembered I once did an album review for them

  1. I hope the wee baldy guy bought you a pint Rab.

  2. Rab that was brilliant, I have just listened to it four times in a row. I would like to see these guys or Harmonica Lewinsky at the Toronto Jazz Festival, ( I know it is blues but there more blues bands at the festival than anything else) there is also a blues festival but it is not as big as the Jazz which sees Queen St. in the beach area closed down for 3 nights.
