Anyone who has listned to some of the recent podcasts would have heard me attribute music to Dylan Owen.
Dylan is my Uncle and I’ve been borrowing some nice instrumentals from him for the podcasts. He’s long established on the music scene in the North West and you can check out stuff his MySpace page above. He doesn’t just do guitar noodling but he’s a great singer songwriter.
Since he’s been lending me tracks it’s probably worth me pimping some more of his stuff.
So, here are a few personal favourites – info on CD’s and gigs can be found at http://www.dylanowen.co.uk/index.htmlThe Lager Lout and the Sociologist:

starting to get that ‘new bike’ itch. Now that winter is hard upon us the road bike just doesn’t look that tempting at the moment, what with having to clean every inch if you don’t want it to fall apart in this weather.
And so thoughts turn to purchasing a winter training bike and my eye is caught by this one:
Why? Well, it’s rugged and tough, simply built and with tyres able to handle the crud that lines the roads around me at this time of year. Plus, you can take it off road and it has points for a rack if I want to cart luggage and it may even be able to drag along a trailer when Sam is old enough. It looks like it will be quicker on the road than a mountain bike, which is where I spend most of my time.
So all I need now is £650 or there abouts?
