Excellent video and music. That must be what the end of the world will look like if we all get wiped out by a virus.


Edmund...i used to spend all day in Brum on a Saturday going round the Bullring and Rag Market. Woolworths and the outdoor market were bustling. Great times in nightclubs in the 70's. You could get any bus from the old bus station which was in the main area.  I loved the art gallery and the science museum.
I went to see the new Bullring a few years back and never went again.

Em,From when in my childhood I used to love to go like you into all those places,they were great Togo to.
I then started work for Marsh & Baxters in Dale End in the garage in 1955.
Every day I used to walk up into the city grab some hot potatoes for my dinner and gradually watch them pull down the lovely buildings for the rubbish they've put in their places.What a crying shame.


Good video ,ghastly buildings
Make every day a day to remember
Because this ain't no rehearsal
And you ain't coming back
