pickwicksThe Pickwicks are the brainchild of Bridport guitarist, singer and songwriter Declan Duffy. The constraints of the acoustic singer-songwriter format, allied to a wide set of influences, have always encouraged Declan to broaden the scope of his music as much as possible. Principal influences are The Stone Roses, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Atlantic/Stax and other old soul, the Happy Mondays/Black Grape, film scores and The Pogues, to name only a few (along with a lifelong love of old country music, but only the most real, of course).

dorset_tubeI was born and raised in Dorset, but now live in London.

twitchKevin Parr has launched his idea for “The Twitch”, a book about a fanatic bird watcher who will do anything to beat his rivals, with Unbound.co.uk, the award-winning, crowd-funded publisher. The book’s darkly comic plot focuses on the intriguing world of “twitching”, competitive bird watching that can involve travelling great distances to catch a glimpse of a rare bird. Readers can read an extract from the book and watch a pitch video on the Unbound website and if they like the idea, pledge support to make the book happen. If the book gets enough support, it will be published.

bridport-tubeTFL and The Mayor of London Boris Johnson jointly announce plans to add the South West town of Bridport to the Underground rail network.

In recent research it was discovered that considering 75% of westbound traffic in the lead-up to various weekends and school holidays throughout the year was destined for Bridport, the addition of Bridport to the network was a “no brainer”.

knife_smallNo 10 Cafe Bar has commissioned self defence expert Horst D. Lindenau to hold knife defence classes for its door staff and bar managers.

Following several incidents in the town involving attacks on members of the public with knifes, No 10 has decided that although no incidents have happened at No 10 it is prudent that its responsible staff receive relevant training to cope with such incidents.

pasties_petrolPetrol and pasties is all about mind control and social engineering and many fall for it. You deserve the government you get I fear and this one is well rehearsed and good at it. They're laughing in the bars at the houses of corruption ... and the tax payer subsidises their alcohol consumption oh woe...
