It’s exactly two years today since I made my first post on this blog! 2019 has been a roller-coaster year in the world of Scruffy Storms. I changed the name of the blog at least three times before finally deciding to stick with Scruffy. I had a few […]
On this day in 1999, Suede released their fourth album “Head Music”. Here are my rather excitable scribblings about that day, written in my diary exactly 20 years ago.
