WELCOME to Mr Blint's Attic, devoted to the worship of the sadly neglected, under-rated and generally ignored 1977 triple album Consequences by Godley & Creme (formerly of 10cc) which featured a play written and performed by British humourist Peter Cook.

May 2015 - Lots of news! First up, Kevin Godley has published an autobiography on iBooks and he now seems much warmer about Consequences than he once was. I hope to produce some extracts soon. Thanks to Paul Hamilton for alerting me to that, and for sending me some amazing scans of Melody Maker articles from 1977. Have a look at them here.

Andy Langran sent me photos of his THREE copies of Consequences - Japanese CD, cassette and vinyl. A true fan! Thanks, Andy.

Blint and you'll miss it.
10cc's Graham Gouldman was Simon Mayo's guest on Radio 2 today. He talked about his sadness at Lol and Kev leaving the band, and there's the briefest mention of our favourite triple concept album featuring Peter Cook - at about 1h 11m.

Sample news
Grateful for @bobthesheep for alerting me to No Brain by Madvillain - now where might that opening sample come from I wonder?

Consequences on the radio!
Klaus Wolter emails to say that he's doing a special about the Gizmo and Consequences on his radio show in Bremen, on Friday 19th July 2013 at 8PM German time (7pm UK time), it will be streamed here:

Stuart Maconie featured Consequences on BBC 6Music on Sunday 3rd Feb 2013. Find out more here.

Many thanks for photographer Philip Chudy for sending me this scan of a promotional poster for Consequences which he did the photography and artwork for.

neither rewards nor punishments -
there are Consequences.'
