Join the Stroke Association's latest campaign for fair and effective social care.

In England, strokes are a major health problem. Every year over 150,000 people have a stroke and it is the third largest cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. The brain damage caused by strokes means that they are the largest cause of adult disability in the UK.

Campaign here...

New : The D.O.T Diary May 12

Ahh! I'm crazy for the latest serving of The D.O.T Diary - May 12. This is just my kinda thing.
Don't waste time trying to figure out what's going on, just watch it, enjoy it and bits and pieces will fall into place, the rest? well, were not meant to know it all just yet.
So, the boys have attended the grandeur's of Cannes festival and the infra-red photographic artwork for the D.O.T's debut E.P is on it's way. Mike Skinner revealed some examples earlier in May and it's looking deep, cranberry-fied and mysterious. I can't wait to hold the finished product in my hand.



Note the gorgeous little boy in the video, doesn't he have an elegant and eye-catching little face for films? Excellent filming, editing and sound. Mike Skinner and Rob Harvey both impress and humour as always, cross-examining sanity at it's finest. ....insanity?... or was that supersonic audio deceptions?

R.I.P : Celebrating the extraordinary life of Robin Gibb

It is a very sad time to hear that the Bee Gees Singer and Songwriter has lost his long battle with Colon Cancer and Intestinal Cancer yesterday, Sunday 20th May 2012 10:46. Aged just 62 years old.






















The Bee Gees brothers, Barry, Maurice and Robin born to English parents moved from the Isle of Man to Manchester before settling to Australia. The nippers where singing in perfect harmony at an early age, so well infact, that their mother thought the harmonies floating from the front room was coming from the radio. Well, she was almost right, because further to those beautiful days of their youth, the Gibb brothers went on to sell over two hundred million records world wide.


While Barry Gibb had control of the melodic falsetto, Robin bared the the most heart-felt beseeching vocals. Along with Maurice who died nine years ago of complications resulting from a twisted intestine, the Bee Gees created the greatest hooks that stay in your heart forever with hits such as Jive Talkin', Nights On Broadway, Stayin' Alive, Immortality and How Deep Is Your Love.


The Bee Gees were masters of reinventing themselves which I believe is what kept them so fresh throughout five decades of continuously high standards of hit songs.

Their voices blended together in perfect harmony, their sound is legendarily unique in par with no one.






















Robin Gibb said of their song-making techniques "We would write the melodies for the whole song first and then we would write the lyrics" and Neil Sedaka once said "The Bee Gees song writing is pristine" and I think that says it all.

My deepest sympathies go out to the last remaining Bee Gee and Brother Barry Gibb.

Let the celebrations of Robin Gibbs extraordinary life of music, with his brothers Maurice and Barry begin with some of my very favourite songs of the Bee Gees.




Bee Gees - Massachusetts





Bee Gees - New York Mining Disaster 1941 (Melbourne 1989)





Bee Gees - I've Gotta Get a Message to You - Festival Hall, Melbourne, Australia




Bee Gees - Run To Me





Bee Gees - Too Much Heaven




Robin Gibb - Islands In The Stream (Acoustic version)



This is my very favourite of all the Bee Gees finest works...

Bee Gees - I started A Joke
