That time of the year again to unleash the infamous "Wheres my Rocking Slips Santa gone ? Gone for more Fanta / Mirinda ?" video made by the legend that is Noel Ferris ! Actually sighted at The Horslips Con...he hasn't gone away you know.

Thanks Digger.
Any snow yet in mainland Europe?

The Defenders single was from winter 1979, 40 years ago. Philosophically, I imagine,
it marked a moment reminiscent of Dicken's Christmas Carol in that it simultaneously pointed at that ( present) moment in time, and backward (collecting up an unruly school of cohorts from Horslips and the Radiators), and forward ( having 75% of the what would become the Zens present).

And snow? Do you think the uk will have snow after Brexit?

Snow has been and gone so no white Christmas this year.What's to come after Brexit is anybodies guess,hope travel to England won't be affected by visas and the likes.I was already gone from Ireland when that single came out so missed it(no internet in those days to keep one informed).

This site is also gone very quiet,Taff does his best fair play to him,Rory took the hump over something and left us and doesn't seem to be returning.Pity really,we are all still waiting for those stories that will probably never come now.Happy Christmas Rory in case you still sneak a peek.

Is it worth pointing out that the 1979 surfin reference in Happy Surfin Santa was some 12 years before the internet appeared?
What unearthly story was behind that title?

I'll just remember Defender/Radiators Philip Chevron, Bill Morley, and Mark Megaray tonight, they arnt with us any more, maybe up in Venus, .....and then I'll wish our Fantasia club another Happy Xmas 2018.

Many Happy Returns to all.

In as much as I'd love to be able to like The Defenders Christmas offerings, I think they're indefensible.

DTCWA is a bit of a masterpiece really.
