Family Records Rock My Socks

This last week has been kinda tough, so when I got home from work this evening, I was pretty tired and not in the best mood. Waiting for me on the table was this package: When I saw ‘Family Records’ written at the top, I racked my brains frantically trying to think of what I had bought, really hoping that I wasn’t losing my marbles or buying things in my sleep. I opened it up to a beautiful letter from Emma at Family Records...

Remember Remember the 5th of November…

As the day that Pearl and the Beard completely rocked my socks off! Frank and I went to The Castle Hotel in Manchester to see Pearl and the Beard last night. When the tickets were announced at the start of October I knew I had to go, and the fact that tickets were only £5 each made it a dead cert.

Wakey!Wakey!, Casey Shea, To Kill a King Part 1

A.K.A ‘I don’t know any executives…’ Tonight me and Frank returned back to the Rescue Rooms in Nottingham to see Wakey!Wakey again.

We got quite  a lot closer too! Ed Sheeran was playing next door at Rock City and there were massive queues...

Family Records

A few weeks ago, I ordered some Wakey!Wakey! stuff from the Family Records store. Last week, most of the stuff arrived, and there was a note on the invoice to say the poster I ordered was out of stock. I went on the website and it said ‘Out of Print’, so I expected not to get it, but it came today. The fact that it came made my day, but it was made much better by the hand written note that came with it. In the age of ordering...
