Soundtracked for much of the day by my current top 50 acquisitions of 2015...

News that a new Alice Cooper album is out on September 11 - the long-awaited Hollywood Vampires covers disc with a cornucopia of guest stars...

Original AC Band alumni Neal Smith and Dennis Dunaway feature on one track - disappointing though that Michael Bruce is absent from proceedings...

And another massive King Crimson box, based around their 1995 album "Thrak", is on the way too...

A wander down to Stockbridge...

Near the church, no longer a church, where Count Brodski enjoyed his initial nuptials back in the day...

This was during "Count Brodski : The Wilderness Years"...

This is still a church...

This is an attractive lane...

...where the beast was about its unseen business earning funds for new releases by his faves Alice Cooper and King Crimson, before stepping out into a brighter day - track two side one of "Young and Rich" by The Tubes, whom we will see shortly with Count Brodski and Lady Penelope...

Later, down towards the Forth and its various industrial complexes... pick up my corrected second pair of glasses and my corrected sunglasses...

Home to cook - tasty pasta- and watch two episodes of "Supernatural" and an episode of "Star Trek : Enterprise" and to listen to some music and to waste my time on the Twatter and the Fleecebook, before providing a welcome lift home to the EP, she having had a good night out with chum Gillian...

A Tivo'd "New Girl" and bed...

Once again, riveting...

Highlight of the Day : New Alice Cooper and King Crimson out soon...
