I'm a huge fan and on his Facebook page so you can stalk me if you wanted (not suggesting you would - just crossreferencing to the grief poor BBW's been getting on that other thread ). His dad did play for celtic - I've seen him (GSH not his dad) play a few times can be 'erratic'...which is a bit ironic given 'The Bottle' "Angel Dust" etc

'home is where the hatred is' is an all time favourite, as is 'pieces of a man'.....i heard he's (ironically) battling addiction to hard drugs now, was this mentioned on newsnight? (esther phillips, who quite famously covered 'home is....' also died young at the hands of heroin).

Couldn't agree more, see my post November 17 on this thread. Apparently GSH has anew album out, a guy I know who writes for a couple of music mags has received a review copy of it and reckons it's pretty damn good.

    • Aria and Dan were again amazing in their quick response to my problem (leaking toilet flush), their excellent workmanship and super politeness.  I have used them several times before and am always impressed. Last but not least,  they charge completely honestly.  Thank you!
    • Fair point. They could then blame themselves rather than older people for apparently ruining their futures.
    • I would suggest the fabric stores around soho.  But if you don’t mind shopping online, I’ve found a couple that might suit what you’re looking for online:   Orange https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/atcham-braid-col-04-orange-cream/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh9GWPOUamGa77QNpGdANkK0r7F7y-4uCliLseY-dfUcZDCTMLDAXQRoCU7kQAvD_BwE   Green https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/plain-straight-gimp-braid-col-617-green/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh-63bOJYHpbGmACA9iPsRXmwmX8iY5y8Ks6XxDq1lnVLdE8gp-pfjxoCXs4QAvD_BwE   i would also suggest Etsy for things like this.   Hope you find what you’re looking for 😊
    • We live nearby and often chatted with friendly Joe. Sad to see him go, he said he was retiring. Heard it’s going to be a café/coffee shop on the day he left.
