    Ah would that be A Day In The Life? Edit: Ah I see it's in the story. I flick through my Beatles stuff on the loo from time to time. Not named but now I know....

    Spoilers - well you should have stayed up. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if Collin Morikawa is next - celebrating his win at the PGA by hugging and touching folk then his face....yikes.

    I mean it is very close isn't it? Unless there are other Edinburgh born Callum Malcolms in the same age range... The area of birth would tie in with him attending the Academy And it wouldn't be the first time a transcribed registry office went for the more usual spelling.... But we just don't know! It's like we can taste it...

    You mean the Christopher Tookey who directed episodes of The Cedar Tree, which starred the recently deceased Philip Latham? (Yes, I went there!)
  17. I do love an inadvertent pun. Anyway, just been speaking to two friends this evening - also redundant with immediate effect.

    Headboys Revisited. Not that it's going to be much help, but found out Lou Lewis' real first name was Brian (So possibly Brian Lou[is] Lewis?) and he attended Harris Academy, Dundee, later becoming a teacher? Calum Malcolm appears to have attended Edinburgh Academy, leaving there in 1971: https://web.archive.org/web/20131019072238/http://www.linnrecords.com/linn-calum-malcolm.aspx

    Headboys. Nothing of import - I saw a lovely interview with them which referenced another initial interview with them - unfortunately that initial interview is not available on the net. And it's the one we need! Although I think they may have been formed in Edinburgh where they were at the time, the preceding group Badger originally seemed to hail from Dundee. That is apparently where Lou Lewis is today. Plenty on Calum Malcolm except a bleeding bio. Heatwave. All I have is Eric Johns Rasmussen. Apparently born in Jamaica, his artist page says out of Los Angeles and now seemingly based in Australia (Sydney?): https://www.sydneypartyentertainment.com.au/eric-rasmussen Can't find a lot on Roy Peter Carter (English by Jamaican descent) or Bill Jones (aka William L Jones) (b. Dayton, Ohio): https://worldradiohistory.com/hd2/IDX-Business/Music/Archive-Cash-Box-IDX/70s/1979/CB-1979-06-02-OCR-Page-0008.pdf Calvin Duke serves up nada.

  21. Brexit? That'll be a good redundancy bung, given your service, but coming out to a world of job losses...feel for you Biblio. Good luck getting something new quickly.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

  24. With campaigns for both sides having started up, thought I'd open a thread for discussion of the UK's upcoming referendum to remain or leave the European Union. In the words of The Buzzcocks Clash, should we stay or should we go? Are you in a quandary to vote in favour of staying, even if that means siding with Tony Blair and David Cameron? Will Caroline Lucas' decision to vote for staying hurt any re-election chances she may have even if she is on the winning side? (See Labour in Scotland). Would we be better off leaving? What happens if the constituent parts of the UK vote differently? What interventions can we expect from the international community? So many questions distilled down to "Leave" or "Remain". Bound to be quite a few personalities involved and no doubt some social media abuse hurled about - like the Isle of Man flag, this thread has legs. Let's fire the starting pistol.
