Played the new Magnum album for the first time and the initial impression is favourable. Looking forward to seeing them next month.

Magnum did stop going for a while but came back some time ago. I met them in a record store a couple of years ago. Chase the Dragon was the album that got me into them in the early 80s.

Thanks to Paradise radio I was introduced to Jesse Sykes (they played a track called "the dreaming dead").

Found a used CD on eBay - Jesse Sykes and the sweet hereafter, "Oh my girl" (vinyl much too expensive for a punt!). Highly recommended.

In view of the shit I allow myself to fall into - an old favourite by Coldplay - :)

The first music I've played 'properly' in a fair time now. I wonder if that's what it is?.....

I had forgotten how good this album is. Keith Relf's last work before his untimely death from electrocution.
