Geordie (Ipswich punk legend) RIP
at 22:38 9 Apr 2021

Alas an Ipswich legend has left us - Peter McGlen Davison, aka Geordie (despite being a massive Sunderland fan), father of Pete and Kid of The Adicts, whom he managed from 1976-1989, and the man who put on the first punk gig in Ipswich (and many thereafter, and was a regular behind the bar at Murrayside YC in those heady days).

He was my 'in' to the scene, as our English class had all written short pieces for submission to the Star's junior reporter page in the early 80's and my small music scene blurb had been picked up (despite my teacher trying to 'correct' the spelling to Addicts). One day in class the school secretary came to our classroom to get me as there was a phone call to the school for me; it was Geordie who was chuffed with the coverage and hoped I could get more stuff on the band into the paper. He invited me to join them on a coach trip down to London the next weekend when The Adicts were supporting Gary Glitter at the Lyceum.

So I brought a couple of mates along and nervously got on the coach with all the colourful haired and fishnet stockinged crew I'd seen at distance at gigs in the Gaumont, PO stairs etc. To my red-faced mortification Geordie got me to stand up on the bus on the way down ton introduce me to everyone. No going back after that and saw The Adicts a ton of times thereafter, often going down in the van or coach with Geordie.

Lovely fellow. RIP

Peterborough have scored as many goals in today's game

every Saturday I follow the game and chat with various chums on FB messenger, one being a Posh fan and another follows MK Dons, it's not been much fun today (or most weeks tbh)

The Millwall thread bought back some old time memories - who remembers the flat

Cover shot is Jerry (original bassist of Extreme Noise Terror) and Monster on right; both still with us, though the latter has alas been a bit poorly of late

Spencer, bald and somewhat toothless, I last saw at the reunion gig of Panorama in Black (with Jim P. [ex-manager of Parrot Records] and Jim Harding [now based in LA, along with Monkey and Pete of the Adicts], plus Dave Turner guesting on bass [ex-Still Life in Action]).

Many from those days still around, Rikki Flag (who I used to write Terminal Boredom fanzine with) was a season ticket holder in North Stand til about three years ago; while a host of others can be found via the Facebook Ipswich and East Anglia punk history page.

A couple alas are no longer with us, not least Phil Vane and Pete Hurley from ENT (RIP), also Jim Mayhew (Threat), Roy Hedges and Niall

Ginger nuts - harks back to a golden era, or Jaffa Cakes for much the same reason... or are those technically biscuits? (*runs for cover*)

Castle Hill Whitton - sure I was told once but forgot; alas unlikely to relate to the place name, but this is where our major Roman villa is located - as dug by Basil Brown originally, then us oiks in 1989, then a Time Team episode I believe

Ipswich .v. Colchester - depends on what exactly it is you are asking. In terms of absolute age then the Stoke Bridge work produced good Palaeolithic and there are stray finds of very early date from various locales (Colchester may well have similar stuff, not up to speed on them).

In terms of earliest major settlement then Colchester as Camulodnum a very important Roman town, but in terms of continually inhabited town then that's us, as Colchester very much crashed at end of Roma period (so called 'dark ages'). We have Early Saxon burial ground at Buttermarket (I found the first grave!) and continued to grow thereafter.

It used to be between us and Southampton as to who was the oldfest continually inhabited town in Britain (again London was meant to have crashed somewhat, maybe that view's since been revised).

haven't watched on iFollow so I have no idea if just nervousness and not taking responsibility for the shot, or ineptitude

Palace also have Captain Sensible mind, who penned a ditty to Selhurst Park (Sell Her Spark) on his new Sensible Gray Cells LP which is well worth a listen
