    Socket to me
    Yesterday it was young skateboarding evangelists (Anna Vines, Matt Edge and Jen Brewin, pictured here). Today it's Socket. Click on their link and you're transported into the world of a rookie rock band, five sixteen-year-olds, whose drummer is the youngest son of one of my Ridley Hall peers.

    There's no audio on the Socket website but their influences reveal that this lot are probably very loud'n'proud. "This band is great fun! Gigs galore, thats what we're here for!" Tom writes on his personal page, and credits Mum, Dad, music teachers, girlfriend and God with thanks.

    When I was sixteen nice Christian boys were told, for the sake of our souls, to avoid R'n'R at all costs. Unless it was Cliff singing 'Miss you nights'. Had it existed then, skateboarding would probably have had dire eternal consequences too. Hallelujah - (to quote the Happy Mondays) - we've progressed.
