Hello and Welcome to my Tumblr blog - Spirit Of Autumn Past. It's named after a track from one of my favourite bands, Mostly Autumn.
I'm a child of the seventies and eighties so expect to see lots of retro music, television and pop culture on here.
I have a very wide musical taste encompassing Prog, rock, pop, punk, soul, funk, disco, folk, reggae, classical and country. I can and will stray into areas that could be classed as "cheesy". I make no apologies for this - life is too short for musical 'guilty pleasures' :)
I love Kylie Minogue and I adore Marilyn Monroe. I love classic Hollywood movies from the 1920s-80's so that'll be up here as well.
I've been to a lot of gigs over the years and it's something I still do. Sometimes I write about them and sometimes I take pictures so I'll share that on this blog also.
I support Wolverhampton Wanderers for my sins and I've been to about 60-odd grounds supporting them. (I have a loose ambition to do all 92 league grounds eventually) so there will be football (or soccer if you prefer!) up here too.
In short I created this blog as a place to chill out and have fun and to share some of the things that I like in the hope that others will enjoy them too - and if they do, then that's fantastic.
