  • Cream of The Crate: Album #117 - The Walker Brothers: The Walker Brothers (Self Titled)

    "[The Sun Aint Gonna Shine] is an all-or-nothing existential ballad, a Spector-style wall of sound fronted by Scott's huge voice." (The Guardian - March 2014)


    Album Cover

    This is album number one hundred and seventeen in the series of retro-reviews of both vinyl and Cd albums in my collection.

    The series is called
    "Cream of The Crate " and each review represents an album that I believe is of significant musical value, either because of it's rarity, because it represents the best of a style or styles of music or because there is something unique about the group or the music.

  • A decent woman? The breastfeeding and visibility debate is nothing new

    A decent woman? The breastfeeding and visibility debate is nothing new

    It’s a predictable tale of controversy in modern public space: a woman or group of women are welcomed to or excluded from a place because they are breastfeeding. The event makes the midday news and ushers in debate about whether breastfeeding is a fact of life or something that should be cloaked away in private.

    Last week, a Sydney cafe owner’s sign welcoming breastfeeding mums in for a free cuppa made its way to headlines and internet viral status. As usual when this issue arises...

  • How does ice use affect families and what can they do?

    How does ice use affect families and what can they do?

    US TV-style ‘interventions’ aren’t the answer.

    Some of the greatest impacts of drug use are on families, but families sometimes feel in a position of little control when it comes to responding. Often they receive mixed messages about what they should do.

    Ice or crystal meth, the strongest form of methamphetamine, has arguably the biggest impact on families of all drugs. It increases the risks of psychosis, violence and impulsivity and decreases emotional control. This...

    ". . . we get to the closing Roadrunner, which might be the most unhinged live performance from rock’s first decade." (Recordcollector)

  • Ruminations From My Veranda #25: Surprise, surprise and, wow! Thank goodness for that!

    Surprise, Surprise - and wow! thank goodness for that!
    Hi, I'm Rob Greaves.


    This is the twenty fifth posting in this on-going, if not somewhat ad-hoc column called "Ruminations From My Verandah".
