Knott Memorial Flats - North Shields/Tynemouth.
Visited these flats recently for the first time after seeing them from South Shields a number of times and thinking  what a superb vantage point they have looking out across the mouth of the River Tyne. Apparently built with the onset of World War 2 in mind, using fire-resistant materials and with huge cellars that could double up as Air Raid shelters. At the time, the clock on the face of the building was apparently the biggest in the region. Completed in 1938. Just in time.

Madonna - Borderline.
I’m off to Huddersfield tomorrow for work purposes. That fact and this choice of record have literally no connection with one another..

Paul Simon - Graceland.
Posted this before I think, but I caught ‘You Can Call Me Al’ on the radio earlier and that was that. In the words of Yoda, sometimes you just can’t escape your destiny...you must play Graceland again. I’m paraphrasing the great man a bit I know-let me have it.

Keeping a promise to @__sam_brown__  Whilst rifling through my Dad’s old technical drawings and pictures, I discovered that (for reasons best known to himself), he’d kept a piece of my own ‘artwork’ in the same folder. At a guess, I’d say this probably dates back to me being about 7 maybe. I’m loving the detail and perspective here-those layers of compacted sedimentary rock against a mountain backdrop👌😆. Best of all though?? That Tonka inspired digger..🔥. Nice to see hard hats being worn too....

Diana Ross & The Supremes - Live at London’s Talk Of The Town.
According to the sleeve notes ‘Sophisticated adults go away with the discomfiting memory of having leapt to their feet, shouted, whistled, stamped and lost considerable dignity in their appreciation.’ It’s clear they’ve never seen me dance..now THAT’S how to lose considerable dignity...

Ben E King - Stand By Me.
Not only a magnificent song, but my favourite #metafit cool down track of the year by a country mile. Those strings....

Northside - Shall We Take A Trip.
‘Shall we take a trip down Memory Lane...?’
I’m rarely any other place frankly. My head’s certainly in the clouds..

The Beatles - Beatles For Sale.
My mate’s Dad once drove me and two of my mates all the way from Newcastle to Ipswich for Ipswich v Newcastle on the Saturday. He then drove us across to London on the Sunday for Sunderland v Norwich in the 1985 Milk Cup Final and all the way back to Newcastle immediately afterwards. I won’t dwell on the football as I’m still coming to terms with the Sunderland defeat. Anyway, point being that we were treated to about 12 hours of non-stop Beatles albums, including this one. Happy days (the Sunday notwithstanding...).
‘I've had a drink or two and I don't care,
There's no fun in what I do if she's not there.’

‘Ken’ - Everybody loves a sharp dressed man. Met Ken on his way across the skywalks of Newcastle, making his way home with his shopping. He was very happy to stop for a photo. Suspect he welcomed the rest. Top man...thanks Ken.

Traveling Wiburys - Handle With Care.
I’m ruined. Two enjoyable but brutal lots of exercise today and I’m getting on a bit, so y’know....’handle me with care’. Cheers.

Visited some great new locations in Newcastle on Saturday that I hadn’t previously explored. This one was a highlight - all long shadows and dark corners, punctuated with brilliant shafts of light that revealed the dust hanging in the air. All very 1940’s Film Noir...or for those that know, a bit like an unused still from a Yazoo album cover photo shoot. Whether you envisage Double Indemnity or Upstairs At Eric’s, it’s a fantastic hidden location.

Lou Reed - Transformer.
Newly arrived, so why waste time? Always liked this portrait cover art too...a bonus.

‘She smoked mentholated cigarettes and she had sex in the hall.’
View from Manors multi-storey, Newcastle. Another product of an excellent meet up organised by @nostalgia_kid last weekend. Posted it on my story and some people said some nice things...so here it is again. Serves you all right for being dead canny and such like.

Aztec Camera & Mick Jones - Good Morning Britain.
I know I’m a few hours late, but my morning was otherwise taken up with running and Remembrance Day activity. Anyway, this sounds great at any hour...
