Interesting developments on the Word Magazine website, they've added an album map.
The map in typical Google Maps fashion pinpoints the spots where iconic album cover photographs were taken. You can zoom in by double-clicking an area of the map or by using the slider on the left hand side. Click on a blue marker to see details of that album.
Some recommended locations for music connoisseurs are:
- The Smiths - The Queen is Dead
- Microdisney - The Clock Comes Down The Stairs
- London Calling - The Clash
- Heaven Up Here - Echo & The Bunnymen
- Coles Corner - Richard Hawley (It's not Sheffield)
- Spring Hill Fair - The Go-Betweens
But don't stop there - you can add your own favourites to the map. It's really simple to do - well for some people....
By the way, there is a Summer Open Neck shirt on Friday 25 July 2008, I might go along...

The result is a series of themed virtual pavilions dedicated to ‘Geography’,‘Culture’, ‘Economy’, ‘Society’ and ‘International’, each containing 20 exhibits that convey the artists’ ideas about the things they have seen and experienced, indexing the background to their inspiration alongside the exhibits. The exhibition focuses on issues that pertain to the changing nature of everyday life in the North, such as new housing and architecture, transport infrastructure, established industries and traditions as well the current push for regeneration through cultural landmarks.

After a few months immersed in the madness that is north-east football, Mike Ashley Newcastle's owner, is sufficiently confused to give in to the clamour of the Geordie fans.
The appointment may not ultimately end in a crucifixion, but it will certainly end in tears.
