    Not just books
    Seeking out tokens for this weekend's ordinands I was tempted to buy up News from Nowhere's entire stock of cards bearing this cartoon. That's my slogan... and that's why they know me in there.

    However on the way out Mandy handed me a flyer drawing me to another aspect of the shop - their considerable stock of local folk and world music, something which I've tended to overlook, on the whole, tending to do my alt. music shopping just off Bold Street at Probe (today's purchase: the sunn 0))) / Boris collaboration Altar).

    Mandy got an hour on Stan Ambrose's Folkscene show last night to play her selections and talk about the links between the shop, music, life and movements for change. All very good (and I really ought to lighten up and embrace more of this music). I recommend you take time this week to click Folkscene on Radio Merseyside's Listen Again.
