Just back from crewe flea market and two scratchy records in my sweaty hands. The Indian film "Purab Aur Pachhim"(East & West) 1970 on the Odeon label is a classic piece of Bollywood with a wonderful song called Twinkle Twinkle Little Star which I have put in the files of the Boot Sale Sounds yahoo group. It's one of the oddest songs I've heard for a long time. Just found the poster in Dogpile which is even more bizarre with the twin towers in the background! Also got a Kanda Bongo Man comp. on Globe Style. Hazel found a thermometer for her growing thermometer collection. It has a nice metal case shaped like a cruise missile. Popped round to see Tony and saw the new DVD single of the Fat Cats which was great (see the website in links where you can download it).

A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a dad , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
