    "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."

There are still five days left to listen here. Thanks to Lenin the Parakeet for the heads up.

Tom Waits v. The Blue Nile

Aw naw! I hear you say! Has he no’ gone on aboot this enough? Please gentle reader bear with me! I am pure dead excited so ah um about these two gigs coming up. As is my habit I was having a wee strum on the guitar tonight and a wee tootle on the moothie too and I came up with the following (familiarity with The Blue Nile and Tom Waits back catalogue required) and grabbed the BR8 (idiot proof home recording device)

Be kind with any comments(!)
