Pete Shelley RIP

Tonight I type this with tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart on the news that the great Peter Campbell McNeish more commonly known as Pete Shelley, lead singer and guitarist of our beloved Buzzcocks has sadly died earlier today of a heart attack in Estonia where he now lives.


My heartfelt condolences go out to Peter's Family his current band mates Steve Diggle, Danny Farrant, Chris Remington and all of his former bandmates, friends and fans worldwide.

I last spoke to Pete at an event in Manchester earlier this year, a wonderful man who will be sorely missed by us all.






Peter Campbell McNeish RIP
1955-2018

Buzzcocks at The Electric Circus, 28 November 1976

Buzzcocks at The Electric Circus, 28 November 1976.



Not sure of the source for this pic and it might well be one of John Maher's from his scrapbooks that he's been posting via his @flyingmonkphoto Twitter account.  Incidentally if you love Buzzcocks (and if you don't why are you here?) then I would urge you to follow John's Tweets, they are a fantastic historical reference for Buzzcocks and related information.

Musicians Be Like Kids in The Sweet Factory

Dave Tomlinson may just have found the Formula to modern day creativity.  It comes in the form of a music recording studio and it's available to book now. I'm pleased to share with you;



"The Sweet Factory."


I've been following Dave's progress with this project to build a modern, comfortable recording studio located in Lincolnshire and I have to say having been in a few over the years that this one is simply wonderful.

I haven't seen it in the flesh to be fair but the fantastic photographs that Graeme Oxby has taken which I have shared here really show this remarkable place off in the best way possible and what a wonderful modern recording facility it looks to be.

Musicians and recording artistes who want somewhere special to create their work would do well to check The Sweet Factory Out and book a session in it soon because I have no doubt this is going to be a sought after and fully booked studio in no time at all.



Check out The Sweet Factory at their Website Here.

Thought I'd upload a few pics of my Spiral Scratch shirt for you to check out.  Hope you like it.

I wore it for the first time at the Buzzcocks gig 21/7/2017 at Uppermill Civic Hall.  Met the band after the gig backstage who liked it.
