We had a lovely evening yesterday: we went out to dinner with Dave and Jess B-B and their new puppy in their new house. A splendid time was had by all, and I am completely in love with Beaux the puppy who is an absolute darling. But don't tell Archie or Prudence. I would hate them to get jealous. Mercury is in retrograde apparently, and I have a great desire for chocolate. I have no idea whether the two are connected, and don't really care.
And now, here is the news:

THE TRAVEL BROADENS THE WASSNAME ISSUE
Graham travels to Phoenix, Arizona to meet the Space Pharoahs, a Hawkwind tribute band in a most unlikely location. And they even get raided by the cops! Meanwhile Alan is getting all arty in Vilnius, Lithuania, John goes to see Cary Grace and Mauve la Biche in darkest Somerset, Richard Freeman writes about Tura Satana, Richard Foreman about Neil Young's Jeans, Doug writes about Fleetwood Mac, Jon rants on about Krautrock, and The Man’s Daddy has a whole page of Brexit Jokes.
It’s all free!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Friday Night Progressive, and Strange Fruit. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons outside zoos (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have escaped from captivity, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!
