Marillion did that.
Marillion did that.
Biff Byford telling us the joys of whatever….
What a waste of space,
The Brexit “negotiations” are a joke.
“We are 95% there”.
Vote Lib Dem in the forthcoming December election!
A common criticism of us is that we like lists about music.
So lets turn it inwards…
What are your best lists of anything that led you to discover great new things…food, wine, music, cars etc.
I am sure we have never discussed this here before. But I might be wrong.
I like a glass of wine and after reading the Adrian Chiles/Alcohol blog and watching the film after getting back from holiday I can see a bit of me in there.
Therefore, I want to drink less but enjoy better quality wine.
So what is your best achievement this year?
I have both asked and answered that question over my career.
I hate appraisals at my age (52), but me in my 20/30s would have been biting at the bit for that one.
Any good come backs for us older types?
He has a hit a new high with this show.
Not suitable for under 40s!
That was me in the mid-late 2000’s until my first child arrived in 2009.
I haven’t bought many CDs in the last 5 years (maybe 10) and Spotify is my gateway to music. I now look back on my DVD film collection as something I “must” re-visit…I probably won’t as most are now in boxes in the garage and I can get them on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
My CD jewel cases were discarded many years ago and the discs and inserts placed in plastic wallets. These are now all stored in the loft but accessible immediately if an old album needs revisiting and played in the car. This happens maybe once a month!
So most of my £50 is now spent on streaming with a poorer sound quality.
I am going back to my CDs!
Great start fur Russia but they might scrape through with a draw with Egypt.
Portugal v Spain was marvellous.
Over to you…
Me and Mrs Wheaty are off to see Gary Barlow at Blenheim Palace on Sunday as my belated Xmas present/Fathers day gift.
I have checked out his recent gigs on setlistfm and after a bit of spotifying I am looking forward to it.
Rumer as the opening act is a further treat.
Anyone here ever seen him live and what can I expect?
This is a great documentary on how life now exists in South Africa 20+ years after apartheid.
Theresa May responds by doubling the price of Motley Crue and Guns and Roses albums
I have never understood the popularity of clearly successful bands like Depeche Mode and New Order.
I was well into the music of the time as a student but these bands passed me by.
What was I missing?
This might appeal to the people willing to shell out for the Appetite for Destruction enormo box!
Attack of the Grey Lantern is 21 years old this year and about to be given the full re-issue treatment and released on 8th June.
I really liked them back in the day and a recent revisit has not disappointed.
This is a top tune.
So here i am once more In the playground of the broken hearts One more experience One more entry in a diary soft penned
A comment by a fellow AW member in a recent thread assumed I would always be into Motorhead and Angel Witch.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
I love Def Leppard who were never as bad as Angel Witch!
They were great…
The last joke is excellent!
More varied than I remembered!
Some good stuff here that was new to me.
Have nice Easter Prog Weekend all!
As proven here.
It is marvellous and worth a view IMHO
A truly great underrated band with the best ever OGWT performance (see that thread for details!)
