  3. Thanks for the link for The Mirror. By the way I thought your blog was defunct after a lack of posts for 3 months so I removed 'Anorak Thing' from my "Blog List"

    Now that you're back up and running I've added you blog to mine.

  4. There were several other songs penned by Bob Pierce and Mike Stewart which included "magic Carpet", I recorded the original demo tapes for the band at the Percy Boys club in New King Street Bath England. Chris Warnett is a director of Rotork in USA ..Mike Stewart is a VAT officer in UK .. Nick Bigsby became a producer for London Weekend TV UK Bob pierce is owner of the Bunker Studio in Bristol if you want any records or copies of other songs by this group he is the guy to contact. I never kept any copies of the demos that I did.

  7. The music is there for readers to listen to. I rarely post MP3s that can be downloaded.....it's just not my scene.
