" I’m taking you with me to see another time"

"If only the 4 Skins had told us ACAB,
If only The Ramones had let us know we were a happy family,
If only The Buzzcocks had shown us how to do it ourself,
If only Crass had shown us there are things more important than wealth,
If only The Vandals had shown us it was OK to smile,
If only The Dead Kennedys had helped us put our government on trial,
If only Rancid had played live, and brought with them that vibe,
If we had Sick Of It All and Madball we could put them all on the frontline,

If we had GG Allin we’d have learned it’s OK to be hated,
If we’d have had The Refused then we could have innovated,
If we’d had Poison Idea then they couldn’t push us over,
If we’d had Minor Threat then we could have done it sober,
If we’d have had Against Me we could have done it all unplugged,
If we’d had Operation Ivy we could have done it then fucked off,
If we had The Blitz, The Clash, Disorder, Propagandhi,
The Exploited, NOFX and anyone that’s handy,"

"And it’s up to you to go out there and paint the canvas,
After all, you were put on the earth to do this,
So shine your light so bright that all can see,
Take pride in being whoever the fuck you want to be,
Throw your fist in the air in solidarity,
And shout “Viva la punk, just one life, anarchy”

City circuit

Last night Derbyshire, 40ish miles was just too much, too cold too dark, you when you set off in the sun and it just gets darker and colder, its like swimming out to sea and knowing you've got to get back.....tonight it was the urban 8, a figure of 8 around the city, a few degrees warmer, different riding different dangers just as much fun!

Lowland ride

To nights lowland ride canals and rivers fast lanes blind bends and no cars, only the lack vision slowing the ride. Another 60ish miles and nothing fell off!

Bad vibrations

Epic ride yesterday including a trip to the Bath again but this time with Mand on the back. Its was great to go riding together and sit and drink tea and watch the world go by. I got up this morning checked the sporty and found that the head light support cracked on both sides it was only held on by a couple of mm. A quick hunt in the shed and four holes later this work of art was constructed function over beauty for sure but its all getting changed over winter. Time has told on the sporty...............its time has come.
