Update 17th Sept - Video from Los Pacaminos gig at Milton.

Did you know that Paul Young, the singer from the 80's who had a string of hits in the top 40 is performing near Derby this Sunday in his band Los Pacaminos. I dare say you can remember some of those songs he did such as "Love of the Common People", "Wherever I Lay My Hat (That's My Home)", "Come Back and Stay", "Everytime You Go Away". Since 1995 Paul joined a group called Los Pacaminos and has been making music for many years touring around the world. This Sunday in Derbyshire, next weekend they are preforming in Switzerland !

  1. That's a great rendition of Wooly Bully ... though I fear the Swan Inn at Milton is a bit further than I'd wanted to travel this Sunday evening. Still I think I included them in one of my Pub Walks books not so many years ago ...

    1. Hi Charlie, Yes there are several videos of there music on youtube. Milton is about a 20 minute drive from Derby.
