Time for a bit of ‘panic posting’ as Mark Shirley rightly called it so here is a quickie with a tenuous Dead Kennedys link and an excuse for one of the best song titles again.
Martin suggested I was like a Hawkwind Roadie on a Status Quo comeback tour with my swift return to blogging before Mark pointed out I’m back on the shelf in four days’ time.

Yep, #countdowntolockdown means I can fill in the gaps before boozers
bite the dust once again pour flaggons of cask down the carsey.
I’m not sure what will happen to 607 – The Golden Eagle DE1 1DZ but I hope it emerges from the debris alive and kicking in December.
It’s a cracking boozer off the beaten track in Derby centre and not always on ale trails but it is definitely a pub worth visiting.
Associated with music, I popped in here on a Thursday as I couldn’t watch my lad play football due to covid restrictions and had an hour to kill!
(discussing California Uber Alles)
You know you’re in a good boozer when the first two songs you hear are Presidents of USA “Peaches” and the Rolling Stones “Gimme Shelter” Throw into the mix two blokes in their sixties (the new middle aged in pubs) talking about the Dead Kennedys.
(Gaffer clocking up the miles)
Friendly punters and a very friendly gaffer who brought over a pint of “Golden Eagle” that was more than decent.
It’s a Thursday night at about 6.30pm and there were probably 20 punters inside and outside of this boozer…enough to survive long term?
