Late Night Stargazing

Apologies for the radio-silence for the past however long it’s been (and thank you to those who got in touch to check I hadn’t actually died this time); fret not, I’m well.

Truth be told, after finding a bit of a flourish writing about my recent hospital exploits, I’ve run into the usual brick wall that is trying to think of things to write about in January.

Call it the New Years Blues if you like. Or Seasonally Affected Blogging.

Or let’s call it what it really is: I couldn’t be arsed, and couldn’t think of anything interesting to impart which might lift the winter fug.

Also: I started back to work this work, the first time I’ve ventured to the office in almost three months. But more of this later.

In the meantime, a late night tune which popped up on my iPod on the way back home from work the other day (or maybe it was on the way in…already the working life is a real blur…I dunno…does it matter…?), the title of which (the first bit, not the bit in brackets) seemed appropriate for to end my New Year lull:


Scott Walker – The Old Man’s Back Again (Dedicated to the Neo-Stalinist Regime)

A couple of 2019 admin points for you:

  1. I’ve gone back to using to share the mp3s I post here, as I know some of you (predominantly Google Chrome users, I think) were unable to access the links when I was using PixelDrain (as I have for the past year or so). If anyone remains unable to play/download stuff I post, please let me know via the Comments or at the email address you’ll find somewhere on this page, and I’ll see what I can do);
  2. As with a recent post, in the unlikely event that there’s a tune you want to hear that I’ve previously posted but the link is dead, leave me a Comment on the page in question and I’ll do my darndest to reupload as soon as I can;
  3. I’ve been writing this blog for over five years now – yet it seems this is this the first time I’ve ever posted any Scott Walker. How the heck did that happen…??

More soon.

** UPDATE – I’ve received notice that there’s an issue with accessing the tune via, so here’s an additional link for it via PixelDrain:

Scott Walker – The Old Man’s Back Again (Dedicated to the Neo-Stalinist Regime)

Sorry ’bout that and all that.

  1. Welcome back. Your new Box links don’t seem to be working – when I click on them, a ‘sign in to your account’ page appears.

    1. Hi Paolo. Thanks for letting me know; that’s the issue people told me about when I used to post links via Box. I’ve added a second link to this tune to the post for you, using PixelDrain like I used to.
