North Wales Little Folk. A man dressed in green. Welsh Pixies

Deborah Hatswell BRITISH BIGFOOT REPORTS
Published on Oct 8, 2018

Witness Report. I would like to report a strange experience that happened some time ago now, I have never forgotten this incident and Im happy for you to share it.  I was with a few friends many years ago, driving around north wales at about 5am we were driving on the country lanes, and right in front of us a small man who stood about 3 feet tall appeared from a bush at the side of the road.

Pretty neat tale … wish I could see a cryptid. The little people are an ancient lot, having been reported as far back as history goes. These diminutives are just as exciting in my world as the huge ones. Anything nature has to offer is a turn on for me.

Strange Finds at Cannock Chase. Dolls Heads & Bones

Deborah Hatswell BRITISH BIGFOOT REPORTS
Published on Oct 9, 2018

A gentleman who was visiting Cannock Chase in Staffordshire came across some very strange finds. He contacted me by email and kindly agreed to share the images of the finds he came across that day, “I had also heard wood knocking in this area, it didn’t sound like a woodpecker, a much slower and a heavier sound of something being struck. I would be surprised if it was children responsible for the structure as the location is quite off the beaten track, away from the well trod areas of Cannock Chase. The collection of bones (sheep or deer?) was kind of bizarre too I can’t see a reason for them being there inside the structure.

Kind of creepy. It begs the question of “Who?” Was it a disturbed person putting down clues or memories of a fantasy or something more sinisster? Or was it a creature of some sort? Perhaps one day we will know. Perhaps not.

LINER NOTES

In January 2018 I excitedly touched down in a freezing New York City, having flown in from London. I was in the United States to record an album of purely acoustic blues with two incredible American musicians—legendary singer and guitarist Joe Louis Walker and virtuoso piano genius Bruce Katz.

Blues music has thrived and survived for well over a hundred and twenty years, and currently boasts countless festivals around the world. But these days, much of what is considered blues is something quite distant from the music’s roots—a loud and proud classic rock-infused sound originally forged by iconic artists like the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Gary Moore and Eric Clapton and carried on these days by guitar heroes like Joe Bonamassa, Walter Trout and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

This album was intended to head in completely the opposite direction. It was to be a celebration of the dynamics, grooves, lyrics and, above all, the feeling of unadulterated traditional blues. Blues played intimately and at a low volume and with the wonderful space that is created when drums and bass are taken out of the equation.

But why did I want to make this album? After my years of leading The Dirty Aces, a British blues-rock band, I had returned to basic traditional-style electric blues in 2016. The resulting album, For Those Who Need The Blues, and the unexpected, incredible audience response that followed, reminded me of the awesome power and emotional impact of pure blues.

It was at the Amstelveen Blues Festival in the Netherlands in December of 2016 that I met the great Joe Louis Walker, whose set was after mine. Joe invited me to sit in on a couple numbers and then we talked music for hours after the show, and about perhaps working together in the future. I was amazed by Joe’s razor sharp musical memory and his extensive blues knowledge, all coupled with the incredible power he wielded on stage. He is a guitar virtuoso with tremendous feeling and an incomparable singer. I came away from my meeting with Joe with my head buzzing with a germ of an idea for a recording project.

A blues musician spends a lot of time in planes, trains and automobiles, and in cheap hotels. This gives him a lot of listening time. I found I was being drawn to acoustic albums by bluesmen who usually recorded with bands, like Sonny Boy Williamson, Junior Wells and Muddy Waters. Freed from having to be loud and heard above a band, these artists displayed an incredible amount of soulful, goosebump-inducing subtlety and sensitivity. These stripped-down performances also put a stronger emphasis on the lyrics—the plain-speaking, truth-telling, experienced, tough, ironic and humorous lyrics that are among the blues’ greatest achievements.

The more I listened to these albums the more I yearned to create something similar. I realized that Joe Louis Walker was the perfect musician I needed to do this record justice. I reached out to Joe and after a few phone calls and emails he was committed to the project.

Joe had the great idea to fill out the sound by including his friend, pianist Bruce Katz. Bruce is well known to blues fans as a long term member of Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters and also for his work with Gregg Allman, Delbert McClinton, John Hammond and Big Mama Thornton, as well as for his own solo career. Like Joe, Bruce is one of the most incredible musicians I’ve ever encountered. He manages to combine near-perfect execution with down home funk and feeling. He can range from classical to jazz to blues at a drop of a hat, and is a master of all. It was Bruce who suggested Scott Petito’s wonderful NRS Studio in Woodstock, NY. Scott is a recording wizard with an impressive client list including the likes of Mercury Rev, John Scofield, John Medeski, Rory Block and Levon Helm.

Over three days of rehearsal and five days of recording, mixing and mastering, the three of us became very much an organic unit. We picked songs, both obscure and classic, by the likes of Sonny Boy Williamson, Blind Willie McTell, Big Maceo, Roosevelt Sykes and Son Bonds—but we played and recorded them very much our own way.

As I’ve gotten older, my love for blues music has only gotten stronger. My life experiences have caught up with the meanings of the lyrics and the healing feeling of this timeless music. The album title reflects the fact that we felt that each song we chose took us on journeys, both lyrically and musically, to the heart of blues music. We invite you to take those journeys with us.

Giles Robson

Giles Robson has been described by Blues Revue Magazine as “A phenomenal talent…a harp maestro at the top of his game.”

Mighty and masterful Blues from a most excellent group of players.

When I snagged this off of Cathy Palumbo’s fabulous blog… it was an animated gif – wherein the girl’s hair was rippling in a most appealing way. Tré cool, actually. But now, as you can see, it’s still a gif but it’s only one frame of it.

It disturbs me. I have even had some turn into jpgs for God’s sake! And they’re that way if I go back to check.

Uncovering truths will often make you feel uncomfortable. If you are open minded and not closed minded to truth then you will progress and learn. We must support this man’s right to speak and to have his work published. He has been hounded and beaten and labelled as a Nazi and Fascist, Accusations which are ridicules. This man trawls through the detail of history and tells you what he has discovered. The Ashkenazim Khazars, the ADL and the other Zionist groups and governments are desperately fighting to keep these facts under wraps. Remember enormous reparations are still being paid to Israel by Germany based on lies and exaggerated fables and legends. Of course people died in these camps, of course a lot of wrong doing took place, but facts are facts and not a single person was gassed, not one. There is NO evidence to the contrary and plenty of evidence that these killings never took place. People died at these camps from Disease, starvation, ill treatment and execution. BUT NOT GAS. The 6 million figure is a gross exaggeration. Red Cross and East German government figures put the total deaths at every camp as 272.000, and 282,000 respectively which includes homosexuals, communists, gypsies, murderers, pedophiles etc. The 6 Million figure is a Kabbalist number, a magical figure which featured in news papers in the early 1900’s.

Carinodens ‬fraasi‭, ‬C.‭ ‬belgicus,‭ ‬C.‭ ‬minalmamar

Art by: Wouter Verhesen, oceansofkansas.com

NameCarinodens ‬fraasi‭, ‬C.‭ ‬belgicus,‭ ‬C.‭ ‬minalmamar

Name Meaning: ‬‭Keel teeth

First Described: 1969

Described By: J.‭ ‬T.‭ ‬Thurmond

Classification: Chordata, Tetrapoda, Reptilia, ‭Squamata,‭ ‬Mosasauridae,‭ ‬Mosasaurinae,‭ ‬Globidensini

Carinodens existed during the Late Cretaceous and was discovered in the Netherlands, Belgium,‭ ‬Morocco, ‬Russia, and‭ ‬Ukraine.Carinodens at first was named Compressidens, but that name was very short lived because a species of mollusk already claimed that name, so the genus Carinodens was born! Carinodens is closely related to Globidens, and they are a sister taxon to each other. Both Carinodens and Globidens (globe teeth) had round shaped teeth for crushing molluscs, ammonites, and other hard shelled invertebrate prey. This style of teeth, represents teeth from the crush guild, which are teeth that are specialized in particularly eating hard shelled prey.

But when I heard Lindsay Beaver, I knew she was a talent that just couldn’t be denied.

Lindsay delivers blues, R&B and old school rock ‘n’ roll in a voice brimming with attitude and soulfulness. She’s described her music as “punk blues” but that’s too narrow a term. She comes at every song with urgent intensity, soul-baring emotion, a distinct swagger and a take-no-prisoners confidence. And she does so while standing (not sitting) behind her drum kit, driving each tune with her tough, less-is-more playing.

So how did this young woman from up north attract the attention one of the world’s premier roots music labels? By the combination of her indisputable talent and her utter determination to be heard, as well as by her all-encompassing musical vision. What other Alligator artist would name her life-changing inspirations as Billie Holiday, Queens of the Stone Age, Nick Curran, The Ramones, Little Richard, Amy Winehouse and Sam Cooke? As she says, “I really like music that has drive and passion. It’s not genre specific.”

Lindsay Beaver grew up in a working-class home in Halifax, surrounded by music. Her parents listened to everything. “I sang soul music my whole life,” she says. At age 11, she discovered Tupac Shakur and fell in love with hip hop. At 14, she heard Jimi Hendrix and then, in her words, “everything changed.” She bought a guitar and learned to play. But her musical direction was sealed at the age of 17. “It was the first Billie Holiday record I got. I heard her sing ‘Don’t Explain.’ It was a very heavy moment. Billie led me to lots of other jazz, and jazz led me to blues.”

After high school, Lindsay received a scholarship to train as a classical soprano. At the same time, she put together a small jazz band featuring her vocals. “My drummer didn’t want to keep bringing his drums over to my house for rehearsal,” she recalls. So my dad scraped together enough money to buy a drum set to keep in the house. As soon as I sat down at that set, I got it.” If Lindsay has a multitude of vocal inspirations, she has one key drumming inspiration—the immortal Earl Palmer, who recorded with everyone from Little Richard and Fats Domino to Frank Sinatra, the Beach Boys, Ray Charles and Elvis Costello. “He was the perfect drummer. He understood how to play for the song.”

At the age of 19, Lindsay first experienced Canadian blues icons the Garrett Mason Trio performing at a local club. “I’d been learning music my whole life, but the concept of making music my career hadn’t yet occurred to me. The first Garrett show I saw, the crowd was lined up down the street. Once we got in, people were everywhere and his trio was on fire. I thought then, ‘I want to do that—have a band, actually be a real musician.’ I went to the Sunday blues jam for the first time that weekend. But I didn’t tell any of the blues guys about my singing. I figured that if I told them that I sang, nobody would take me seriously as a drummer. So I did my jazz gigs in town singing and then would go to the blues jam as a drummer.”

With the encouragement of her drum teacher, Lindsay applied to music school in Toronto to study jazz drumming. “I barely got in. All I could do was shuffle really well. I wasn’t good enough for a scholarship; I’d only been playing for a year when I applied.” While studying drumming she played and sang in local bands, but quickly realized she had her own musical statement to make. At the age of 24, she founded the 24th Street Wailers, leading the band from behind the drum kit and singing her own originals as well as carefully-chosen covers. She explains, “When I first started out with the band, I couldn’t find a singer I liked and I couldn’t find a drummer I liked, so I decided to do both.” She and the band began making a name for themselves in Toronto and across Canada. Over the course of the next few years, the band cut five albums, three produced by Lindsay, even winning a nomination for a Juno Award (the Canadian Grammy).

Soon she attracted the attention of Texas guitar legend Jimmie Vaughan. “I opened for him in a small town in Ontario. He really dug the band and we got to be friends. After that, when he would come to Canada he’d invite us to his shows. He told me about how much I’d like the Austin music scene and I came down to check it out and kept coming back.” She began sitting in around town, and finally moved to Austin in 2018. She’s definitely established her reputation there, as witnessed by the terrific Austin musicians who chose to appear on the album, including fiery guitarist Brad Stivers and rock-solid bassman Josh Williams (both now in her touring band), plus pianists Marcia Ball and Matt Farrell and guitar ace Eve Monsees.

Lindsay Beaver has already played across the U.S. and Canada and toured Europe multiple times. Now she’s ready for the next giant step in her career–her first album under her own name. It’s proof that no matter where she comes from and how unlikely her story, she can deliver a song with so much honesty, passion and soul that her impact is undeniable.

I think that’s the most extensive set of notes I’ve seen from Alligator, but my mind is almost gone, so maybe not.

She sure packs a wallop, doesn’t she?! Good gracious! And she’s good!

When the Porsche restorers at Singer Vehicle Design announced they were partnering with racing firm Williams Advanced Engineering, we were excited without having seen anything. Even more so after we saw their first collaboration. And now that we’ve seen their latest project together, we’re wondering who we have to kill to get some seat time.

This is the Singer Vehicle Design DLS Goodwood. The DLS stands for “Dynamics and Lightweighting Study,” and it’s a 1990 Porsche 964 whose owner requested Singer and Williams restore and modify his car with an emphasis on—you guessed it—reducing weight. And as you probably guessed from the name, it’s set to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

Also, it looks rad, like all of Singer’s restored cars. That goes without saying.

Let’s talk specs. This guy has a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat six done up by Williams so it’s good for 500 horsepower at a howling 9,000 RPM. The motor boasts lightweight throttle bodies with supposedly F1-inspired upper and lower injectors, a unique oil lubrication system and it has dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. They moved it forward for better weight distribution too.
