Somehow this seems relevant. Their last album was a cracker by the way.
Thanks to the “Greatest female vocalist” thread, I now know Timi Yuro was in fact a female girl.
I’d been aware of the name over the years (of course) but had assumed (“Never assume, always check” was a bit of advice I received in my RAF days which I clearly haven’t followed) Timi was a lad.
It feels good to admit my failings…this is the place for all of you to come clean and tell us all that embarassing fact you’ve been keeping to yourself for fear of ridicule and heartache.
Mine goes to the one in Corbieres, Manchester. Apparently Corbs markets itself as a wine bar or cavern these days. Anyway, the jukebox. Plenty of decent Manc stuff as you’d expect, old and new plus a good selection of other stuff. Presume it’s still there, not been for a couple of years.
Honourable mention to the one in Cask on Liverpool Road.
So who is it going to be?
Favourites currently include Tony Mowbray who is doing pretty well at Blackburn. Can’t see him coming at the moment unless Blackburn don’t make it up.
Danny Cowley from Lincoln. Doubts about his style of play not being “the Ipswich way,” whatever that is these days.
Paul Cook from Wigan. Hmm, interesting. Does he play “the Ipswich way?”
Shefki Kuqi. Heart says yes, head nope.
Steve McClaren. Bit of negativity surrounding him these days.
Mark Warburton at Forest. I wouldn’t mind him. Did well at Brentford but maybe not so well since.
I just hope we don’t get one of the usual suspects. I’m glad Mark Hughes is currently employed! We need someone young, progressive and dynamic to fit in with the clubs ethos. I understand Harry Rednap is available.
“You opened up my heart.”
I know it’s all been done before but I like this.
Looks bad this. How did Steve Smith let this happen?
Jose Mourinho and The Streets were both seen as hip new gunslinger but I reckon they’re looking a bit old fashioned these days. Certainly Chris Sutton thinks Mourinho’s best days are behind him and I heard The Streets on 6Music and thought it sounded a bit lame so I must be correct in linking them together.
Any other vague footie/music hybrids?
They’re supporting the Psychedelic Furs on the 15 June, first night of Robert Smiths Meltdown.
Not sure if I want to fork out £95 for the weekend though!
Predictably, the Fall forums have gone into meltdown.
Someone has donated their dodgy Status Quo vinyl ( By dodgy, I mean things like “Golden Hour of Status Quo” including well known heads down no nonsense mindless boogie tracks called “Umleitung.”) in the Age Uk shop in Ashon on Mersey, Sale.
Mine is on a thread about gigs and it’s actually not that good a memory as I can only remember it partly.
Basically, someone went to a gig and took in a whole goose or turkey or something.
Anyway, your fave Massive Memory?
Heard them on 6music recently and really liked it
Shame “One Rizzla.” Kind of Sleaford Mods meets House of Love.Sorta.
Which song is this mis-heard lyric from then smartypants?
“I heard you won the Wallace…”
I’ve been after the Grace Slick track “Dreams” for years and have finally bitten the bullet and ordered the cd the track is off from the Tax Dodgers. Not remotely bothered about having the other tracks on the album, as far as I know, so I’ve forked out a MASSIVE £7.25 for one song. Big bucks I know.
Show me the money.
Some of you might have noticed a few things I’ve posted in recent times about what’s happened in mine (and my wifes) life over the last few (10!) years. Basically , two boys, brothers, adopted. Been pretty big problems with the youngest one, not much help from the local authorities till we stomped our feet, finally some much needed support and at last things seemed to be settling down. Well , I mentioned on Hannah’s “How have the last 10 Years been?” blog that certain problems had been reocurring with the youngest one so that we’d had to get Social Services back in our lives. Rubbish. In short, the last 6 months or so had been , well, crap. It seemed the last 10 years had counted for very little. Last evening I had to go on a walkabout to find the youngest one who hadn’t returned as requested for tea (not late, only by 7) but who , it transpired was out on the mean streets with certain individuals well known to the local CSPO’s . We’d failed.
Tonight, the youngest one came in, giddy, heading straight up stairs only to return 15 minutes later with a wrapped Christmas » Continue Reading.
What are we thinking?
Should Root have put them in? (Yes) Am I fed up waking up and wondering how it’s going? (Yes) Already.
Can we win this? (We’ve got Smith out haven’t we?)
Apparently this came out in April . Heard it on 6Music this morning…it’s ace.
I hope I’m not alone in this but I’m constantly impressed/amazed/ in awe of some of the knowledge and insight on here. Take HP’s current Brexit Trump thread….just exactly how are you able to articulate your views so well on such a complex subject?
Same goes for pretty much any tech thread, I’m pretty much lost at lossless.
Starting to feel a bit bemused by it all!
Before I see the first advert for The Best of Supertramp.
Trent Alexander Arnold, just won the 3.50 at Belle Vue.
Just seen some photos of a very recent Fall gig on a Facebook site. Smithy was onstage in a wheelchair looking very bloated which presumably is a result of chemotherapy for his cancer. It was guininely shocking to see how he was…didn’t realise it was that bad.
He and his band have given me lots of enjoyment over the years…here’s hoping there’ll be more to come.
Slotbadger’s entertaining thread on songs with great endings naturally lead me to this…songs which let themselves down at the last minute.
Here’s Seconds by the Human League which is by far their best song until…
Three plays in, can’t face a 4th at the moment. What a shame.
How much do I love this song?
Not sure I’m bothered it’s aimed at Boy George, it’s just ace. Never bettered imho.
