The weather I am experiencing in south west England is thankfully considerably more comfortable than is being experienced in parts of the north west seaboard of North America. We knew 25 years ago – and indeed earlier – that dramatic events like this would occur more frequently and more frighteningly right through the 21st century. And yet we have done so little about it.
An otherwise dull and tepid day can be brightened, albeit momentarily, by something special, in this case the simple pleasure of an excellent cappuccino.
Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias were always good reliable fun – a mixture of comedy and music forever changing and forever funny. Snuff Boogie!
I enjoyed my time at the London School of Economics. I recently found my diaries for the LSE years – 1976 to 1978 – and started to transcribe them in February 2021.
If LSE, KCL, GeogAss, Ents, the 3 Tuns, Florrie’s and the Joint School of Geography mean anything to you, there might be something of interest here. I have a lot to add over the next few months! I would love to hear from you if you were around at the time.
LSE Diary posts
A pretty good day for me, like so many others in my time at the LSE. This entry from my diary in 1976 has me listening to Caravan in the morning and getting down to the Marquee in the evening to see a completely unknown band called AC/DC…
It is 1976 and with punk happening it is sometimes easy to forget that jazz-rock was also a pretty big ‘underground’ scene at the time, with lots of wild and whacky bands and tunes crashing out of all directions to challenge ear-brain co-ordination.
Second year at Uni and I was engrossed in Ents (entertainments), beer, music and gigs. No wonder I only scraped through exams!
music, film, gigs, TV…
