    "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."

What the?

Some things it seems are always with us. The boom and bust economic cycle, the weather and bad news spring to mind here. And then there are these curious annual events like the publication of Old Moore’s Almanac, the solstice at Stonehenge and of course the Eurovision song contest.

I haven’t watched it since Clodagh Rodgers was in her pomp but I heard an article on the radio news yesterday about Greece’s entry entitled ‘Alcohol is Free’ by Koza Mostra & Agathon Iakovidis. I thought it my duty to investigate this on behalf of my readers and found the video below.

‘Curious’ doesn’t do this justice. The band in a kind of ‘lets go to work’ stroll through a food market try to look their best in a selection of facial hair, tank tops and comfortable trousers that wouldn’t have looked out of place at a 1970s Liberal party conference.

Almost certainly this is the only music video to feature close up shots of Feta cheese, an aubergine and hanging tripe.

Performed by men in kilts…….playing ska….
