Plague Tapes #99

We close in on a century of shows, and Dr. Groove is still figuring out how to work the mic.  Life is the constant teacher.  The music is all about Ron Carter on the bass in the second half.  The First half is music you might listen to on the floor of the room where you might let it flow over you.



News:  Delta, Delta, Delta. It’s all about that and the arrival in a few spots in Ireland.  Last week there was a lot of sighing from Dr. Groove because we were going full steam ahead with the July 5th – but Delta appears to be changing the minds, even the intractable ones in the big house, the Dáil.  5 day average cases is 304 – but in Northern Ireland, they’ve had an increase of 122% on last week – with 229 cases.  Scotland yesterday, had the higest number of cases it has ever had.  Delta in England, where the pubs have been opened since mid May – has Delta at 92% of all cases, and they have had 92,000 cases of Delta, and 7,325 cases of people who had been vaccinated already, at least one dose.  We still have only 24% of the 60-70 year old – co-hort with two doses of the Astra Zenica – and that will not be complete until the 19th of July, two full weeks after there was a plan to open the pubs/restaurants. You see the problems, and it appears that they’re might be a delay in that plan, due to the sounds we are hearing from men in suits.  Andrew gives us some detail around the Rave / Experiments that happened six weeks ago in the UK, which is worth catching up with. 

Love & Rage,

Dr. Groove
