Strange Powers

I am dicking around with garage band so here’s a Magnetic Fields cover.

This song brings back many memories. Of Coney Island in spring, of singing in a living room in Stoke Newington.

Well. Two memories, at least.

The images on the video are half of Stockport in 1972 and half of Derby and Skegness in 2018. The Stockport images are from Ian Nairn’s Across Britain. He approved of Stockport, and I must confess it looks rather space age mashed with Victoriana, that railway viaduct framing things nicely and the precinct dominated by that glorious escalator to the stars.

My past blogs haunt the internet like ghost ships on a digital sea.
