A new album out this week and it is rather good.
I was a big fan back in the day and the new album has made me go back and rediscover how good they were.
Poor Misguided Fool was always my favourite tune.
An hour or so of your life you will remember if you remember them.
The TMS team seem to be struggling with their culinary experiences during the break.
The teams seem totally unmatched based on the two sessions completed so far. 3-0 will follow (weather permitting).
So we head into the next Ashes tour without a stable batting line-up up top.
5-0 to the Aussies?
We need more New Model Army!
I have an aol.com account and when I view it on my iPhone the account name that appears in the recipient name is not mine yet when I send an email it is still correct and checking the aol account details show is it is fine.
Everything seems normal on my MacBook Pro.
Any tech guys on here have an idea what has happened?
The other half is attending a wedding in Kilmarnock a week on Sunday and I will be looking after the kids.
We thought it would be good to combine both events with a short holiday in the area. I know nothing about this part of Scotland so any recommendations gratefully received. My kids are aged 6 and 8.
Clearly not XTC!
I am talking secondary school age i. e 11+.
I turned up in the Autumn of 1976 as a supposedly bright kid to a Grammar School in Norfolk. The punk wars had yet to reach us and to be honest never did. At this point in my musical life at was all TOTP Thursday night fandom with a particular love of ABBA.
As the punk years evolved outside of my frame of reference I was swept along with the pop of the day and on my 13th birthday in 1978 I was gifted a cassette tape player and a voucher that would enable me to buy two cassettes. I bought Parallel Lines by Blondie and Out of the Blue by ELO. My clearly exquisite taste in rock/pop was born on that day!
As the years developed in school I became known as the pop chart nerd who could tell you what number your favourite band was that week and developed friendships with similar musical focused chaps. Then in 1979 I saw Motorhead perform Bomber on TOTP and shortly after my best friend bought Metal Rendezvous by Krokus as he has just got a record player. Thus began a long lost » Continue Reading.
Strange interview set up but some great old footage here I had not seen before.
Some wonderful person has set up a dedicated YouTube channel featuring over 100 archive Yes videos. Just search for “Yes Waves”.
An example is this 2.5 hour concert at Loftus Road from 1975.
Enjoy, because I will be!
But I might be wrong,
No bias here though.
My dear old thing you really deserve it!
This is an example of why I will always love UFO.
Enjoy, or not, and share your favourites.
Too many preening middle order glory hunters and no decent batsmen to accompany Cook and bat at 3.
Bring back Joss Butler at least and drop the extra Spinner.
I was wrong.
Deep in the mists of time on here and the original word blog I was an avid promoter/defender of Styx and received much piss taking.
Having just re-visited them on Spotify i will now admit i was wrong…apart from the Paradise theatre album.
I bow to the greater wisdom of The Massive on all things AOR!
A great Test Match.
Full details here (the album not my new job!)
I was a fan in the 1980s and also liked the Travelling Wilburys stuff as well.
Then I just lost interest. Have I missed out in the later years?
Southern Accents is my favourite album alongside the double live album from the 1980s Pack up the Plantation..
I am sure many of the Massive are aware of this but if you were not…
Both bands developed amazingly over the time from their first successful release to their publicly acclaimed zenith.
Love Me Do to Sgt Pepper
I Will Follow to the Joshua Tree
And the winner is…
