Celtic Frost

In 1986 my friend Davie Watson let me listen to his new Celtic Frost album Into the Pandemonium. As of this morning, I now have all the Frost albums on CD, with many thanks to Jane, HMV, eBay and Amazon.co.uk.

Next artist to collect: Voivod. I already have on CD their first four albums (War and Pain, Rrröööaaarrr, Killing Technology and Dimension Hatröss) and their latest ‘Voivod’, featuring their new bass player Jason ‘Jasonic’ Newsted (formerly of Flotsam & Jetsam, Metallica and Echobrain).

Powerpoint band

My brother, Eddie, has asked me to play guitar (Burns Brian May, of course!) in the Powerpoint band once a month. Powerpoint is a Christian youth event held at St Thomas’s Episcopal Church on Glasgow Road here in Edinburgh; I think it is overseen by Youth For Christ (YFC) – at least, it used to be. I played my first ‘gig’ with the band this month.
