Inspired by the Sunday evening Absolute 80s radio show presented by Matthew Rudd, I thought it was high time that I started my own ‘Forgotten 80s’ blog for friends, family and regular correspondents. Enjoy!

Shame about the band!
A pretty unique video performance which I came across this evening featuring Coldplay down under with a stunning performance by Mr John Farnham. What a song. What a voice.
After an exceptionally crowd-pleasing Rochester Castle Concerts last year which included artists such as Go West, Tony Hadley and Status Quo, this year’s line-up of artists has finally been confirmed with the announcement today that Level 42, supported by Shakatak, will be kicking off the series of shows on Wednesday 16th July.
For those who have never yet had the opportunity to attend one of the Rochester Castle Concerts in Medway, I would strongly urge you to consider doing so this year. Whilst the UB40 concert is already a sell-out, tickets are now on general sale for Westlife’s Shane Filan, Level 42 (announced today), and Saturday night’s traditional classical spectacular The Proms. A warm welcome is guaranteed in one of the most spectacular and special concert venues in the whole of the UK.
Weds 16th July – Level 42 with Shakatak
Thurs 17th July – Shane Filan with Jamie Johnson
Fri 18th July – UB40
Sat 19th July – Castle Proms
Sun 20th July – Under Siege

For those of a certain age, this is, and always will be, THE movie and soundtrack of the late 80s. Enjoy!
