Sloopy lives on
in a very busy part of #TheTube
& everybody, yeah
tries to treat her
like she's some kinda #newb
Sloopy, I don't care
if the trolls try to put you down
Cuz Sloopy can tell you
have the best gig in town
The Vibrations were the 1st
to record Berns & Farrell's tune
The #Yardbirds version
really made all the boppers swoon
Even the #DC5
Rick and the Raiders?

🖊️ New on the blog this weekend: "All Roads Lead to Aldwych: A Visit to the London Transport Museum (and More)".
I had a bunch of photos from my last trip to London, and attempted to cobble them together into this photo-essay which touches on some London transport history. Disused stations, the Northern Heights project, the Isle of Wight. It's all there.
There's even a Canada connection too…
After admiring it from a distance as I roll past on the Metropolitan line at 50mph, I finally stopped by Kilburn Station (between rain showers!) to photograph this beautiful, young ‘prunus mume’ specimen on the platform in its late stages of bloom. 🌸
Not many unopened buds left; the plum blossom in bloom will likely shed their petals in a few days.
Big ‘mujō’ [#無常] vibes. 🥲
#TOTP with John Peel and Janice Long. Peelie's last appearance until 1995.
Lots of close-ups in the #BlowMonkeys performance, but the group seem to get lost on the huge stage.
#RandyCrawford a favourite of Steve Wright In The Afternoon. Not my bag, then or now.
"No bad language on this show", promises John, after #JoolsHolland referred to «groovy fuckers» on a live trailer just before the Friday show. Producers Peter McHugh and Royston Mayoh were fired from #TheTube.
Not so much @PoemsOnTheTube but poems about being on it. Though they do get a mention. I even remember when they started to appear in carriages!

Le Métro de la mort (1972)
Un film d’horreur qui n’a d’horreur que sa lenteur, pour le reste, c’est vraiment décevant.
Put my TrainTrackr London Tube tracker in a frame and up on the wall, and it's officially the coolest thing I own. A bit of a bugger to photograph behind glass though.
