scootering. . . 35 years old, still no 1, now- even better!

Well, this isn't how I thought we would be marking the 35th birthday of Scootering magazine! Of all the things the publishing and magazine industry has had to weather over the past few years, who thought the biggest impact we would ever see would be from ... the flu!? Of course Covid-19 is no ordinary flu, it is devastating in every way, but I think very few people (if at all any) saw this coming. By 'this' ... I mean the effect on businesses across the world. Whether it be Carphone Warehouse, Carluccio's or Flybe (to name just a few),,. companies both big and small have gone under. In the world of publishing, newsstand sales were temporarily paralysed, as buyers struggled to gain access to their favourite publications. The supporting ad-sale…

Though (at the time of writing) we can't actua I ly get out on our machines for any scooter club action, we can at least eye up some tasty kit, ready for when we do. Of course, those key workers still commuting on their machines might want to take a peek also. Here are the first items on the kit-hit-I ist ...

Mark Broadhurst gives Scootering magazine an exclusive insight into his specialist in-house rumble restoration polishing service ... Mark explained that to develop and perfect the process he's invested more than £30k in specialist equipment. "It all sounded very easy at first; but now after fine-tuning the technique through a lot of learning, adjustments and investing a vast amount of time, money and effort in the service, we're delivering fantastic results." Just about any customer's request for a particular finish can be met. "Some people want a polished engine, some want the engine to look like an original as it left the factory; a bit dull, but clean and smoothed off and this is where our specialist machines also deliver the results. Basically we can deliver any type of finish that the…

all or nothing the musical - via youtube

Theatres are closed across the globe as people are rightly staying at home, so there has never been a more important time to bring the joy and excitement of live theatre right into your living room.

All they ask in return is that you donate what you can to support NHS staff during and after this crisis via their JustGiving page for NHS Charities Together. The video is two hours 16 minutes long, the stream and sound quality is excellent. Enjoy. The video can be found at: https:// youtu.be/QhDs7NawY98 The…

a(nother)quick one with billysullivan

It's their first long-player since Year Zero was released two years ago, their first full-length recording with Acid Jazz records. We caught up with frontman, singer, guitarist, songwriter and scooterist Billy Sullivan for an exclusive chat about the new record and more. A Life Worth Living is the first material from The Spitfires that you haven't written solo. How was it collaborating with someone else? Up until A Life Worth Living I'd never shared the songwriting. For me, it was something new and at first, the idea of it was a bit unsettling. I was introduced to Simon Dine via Gary Crowley. Simon worked with Paul Weller on three albums, among other things, as well as his own project. He sent me a few bits and pieces to play around with. Simon…
