It was Dunmow Carnival today, usually they have great weather for this, but not this year…at least it was only drizzle…mostly. I eventually had 30 minutes to pop out after my dinner and caught the second half of One Step Behind – Masters of Madness, the Madness tribute act. They were excellent and had a good crowd watching, dancing and generally having a good time.

You’ll gather the sax player, Mike Brown, spotted me ;-). More shots of the band after the break.

A non-photographic post…The Stranglers!

I’m not sure why, but I have only ever shared photography stuff on my blogs and that is really only a small part of my interests. One of my other main interests is music…and some fairly specific genres. I both listen and play (although I don’t play anywhere nearly as much as I used to). Most Friday evenings I’ll be mooching around You Tube looking for anything musical that catches me eye.

Last night was no exception and I came across this fantastic full concert recording from The Stranglers during their Feline period. It was recorded for the Rockpalast series – if you do a search for these on You Tube you’ll find a whole host of goodies. In the UK we’ve always had some decent music programming but I’ve always been a bit jealous of this German based series…I mean…they’re full concerts, what’s not to like?
