  1. West Country Freaks

    Head on down the A303 to catch BBC 6 Music Stuart Maconie’s Freakier Zone West Country Freaks spesh, including Flying Saucer Attack, Portishead, Coil, Spinal Tap… and Urthona. Jeez weez sure in righteous company there.

  2. Half a frigging billion years old

    On Salisbury Plain yesterday we came across these fairy shrimps, living in a temporary pond formed by the ruts of tank tracks. These endangered critters have been on Earth for about half a billion years (Upper Cambrian) and have a really interesting life cycle. The Plain – which we’re increasingly digging I tell ya – is a stronghold apparently. OK, so now we gotta build a pond over the winter.
