Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

New Dawn!

For a while now, site visitors, including myself, have been frustrated by the slow uploading of BSH - in particular, the sidebars. Hopefully, this issue has now been resolved thanks to some welcome input from Mac MacLaren. Mac, who edits the Lemon Rock website (check it out), supplied the vital key to the solution - I'd have solved it myself in maybe a hundred years time!

Thanks also to Roly for acting as the go-between.

Although, as the name implies, the site is basically aimed at the rock community it covers all genres and venues throughout the UK and looks to be a good spot for emerging bands to gain a presence - and, at less than the price of a London pint per month.

Looks like the fix has worked, man!

Never seen the sideburns load so quickly...
