Edward Woodward introduces a wargame between two of the pivotal figures in the growth of wargaming in the 1970s - Peter Gilder (as Napoleon - takes on John Braithwaite (Garrison Miniatures).
Of course Mark E. Smith was a wargamer of the Napoleonic period. Steve Hanley mentioned it in his book the Big Midweek which is a great read.
Newly reissued album by the Fall. Good starting point if you haven't heard the Fall before.
boadgame from Airfix but I don't remember it.

Not sure of the date. Mid 60s. Lovely guitar by Hubert Sumlin.
There is a great biography of SJH and it was telling the story of this song. It was a big budget follow up to I Put a Spell on You. Guitar Mickey Baker, song by Leiber and Stoller what more do you need? It wasn't a hit. But it is great and ideal for Halloween so I thought I would.post it.
Lyrics by Leiber and Stoller.
This version of a Donovan song from 1968 is very good fun. Ideal for this time of year.
