Me: "Boss, I have a massive problem I need to speak to you about...."

Boss: "Let me stop you there, you shouldn't think of things as problems, think of them as opportunities...."

Me: "OK boss, I need to speak to you about the massive drinking opportunity I have"

Re: Dave's gear through time

£200 isn't a lot to pay for something these days , I would think double that and you get far better Would changing the keyboards themselves make all that much difference to the sounds, if all they do is control rack-mounted synths? Surely a block of keys is a block of keys, it just needs to be reli...

Most recent one I can find: http://stranglers-ratter.blogspot.co.uk ... pment.html

Re: Dave's gear through time

I just feel Dave doesn't sound as amazing as he did back in the 70's/80's, there's none of that 'Phat Analogue' synth sound, it's just - to use a technical term, all a bit 'Plinky Plonky'? :roll: I'd agree to an extent. Certainly if they do something like "Nuclear Device" with the big fat chords in...

Re: "The Undertones" what a great band IMHO.

I saw that, it's been on before but it's quite interesting. I was surprised that Feargal wasn't in the documentary, is he so annoyed with the remaining members that he won't participate, or is he just "busy"? I also hadn't realised that he didn't write any part of any of the songs, so I'm not sure h...

Re: Pop Will Eat Itself anyone????

I've heard of them, but can't say I'm familiar with any of their stuff. I do watch "Car SOS", though.

Re: NME to stop producing their print edition after 66 years

It's not that surprising, I'm sure the print version has been free for the last few years.
