And where did it come from?
I’ve really no idea what most of this stuff is about.
I’m cloth eared so happy to make do with £30 in ear thingies. Like the last comment though.
Five comments in and no mention about compression.
PS. ABBA were my first musical love but I’m not bothered about this.
Disclaimer. I’ve not watched the YouTube clip.
Sorry, it’s the Daily Mail but I think she did good.
Tucked away on their Numbers EP from 2002, it’s an 8 minute proto trippy/baggy/ guitar fest (but don’t let that put you off) with some of Kilbey’s finest stream of consciousness lyrics. It’s ace loud.
I love the Church but I’m a bit nervous about the forthcoming album.
…that Lene Lovich wrote the lyrics for Supernature by Cerrone. That’s my new favourite fact.
Tuning into Lauren Laverne this morning on 6Music during my ablutions, and I caught half of a song. Another one of those earnest, sensitive singer/songwriters was my first thought. Gently strummed chords, the barest hint of a melody. But Christ, the vocals! Thin, reedy, nasally and whiny. It was familiar but I couldn’t quite place it. It got worse as it went along. One of those American folkies beloved by the press I reckoned.
Almost right. It was Kermit, Am I out of touch?
I’m in charge of the Washing machine at Steady Towers and I’ve been thinking.
I don’t think I’ve ever used half of the functions it has. Never used the “Reduced Ironing” button, never had the need to do a pre-wash. Could count on one hand the number of 90, 60 degree or wool washes I’ve done.
So how about a washing machine that only has a 40 or at a push a 40 and 30 degree wash?
Sell it for £150 quid, gap in the market surely? I’m sure there will be reasons why . And do you have any Dragon’s Den type inventions you’d like to share?
Seems to have resurrected himself of late.
A mate of mine has put this up on Soundcloud so I’m sharing it where I can.
Of course it’s ace. And I’ve got tickets for the Manchester show in October…surely we’ll be allowed out to play by then?
Off to meet my mates for a mini jolly boys in York in a couple of weeks. Some of us might go to the big match at Bootham Crescent where the home team take on Altrincham and I know York is a nice place for a bimble. Your usual recommendations for food , drink etc.
I know there are a few fans on here etc.
A European tour plus one date in London. Saturday 13 June O2 Forum.
I’m planning to go!
Some great small venues out there still. Some still fondly remembered…Hello there the Roadhouse in Manchester.
But plans fell through. So I treated myself to Dad’s Army, the episode with the captured German submariners which you’ll know for the “Don’t tell him Pike!” Quote. Almost as ubiquitous as Fork Handles.
Anyhow, the performance of the actor who played the Submarine Captain was a tour de force. A swaggering cock sure but comedic performance. Step forward one Philip Madoc. You nailed it, and some. Married to Ruth Madoc apparently.
So, I might have not got my rare night out but still, little victories.
The Chameleons, supported by a very rockist Icicle Works at the Ritz, Manchester last night…a top top gig.
And Reg was back!
But a thread for those songs you hear and go ‘Wow, what’s that , where did that come from?”
My choice, Party Fears Two by the Associates…bonkers.
I was “researching” the year 1912 for a crossword clue and stumbled upon this…scroll down through the months!
I know it’s naff, I know it’s terminally unhip but I still love Crime of the Century.
As much as I love Black and White by the Stranglers, Signals by Rush and Life’s Hard and then you Die by It’s Immaterial, non of which are particularly whiny.
Good fun, this.
