Re: Missing In Action

Interesting topic, this. Scary in a way to contemplate what may have happened to a few of them because I think for practically all of us, we have 'the stranglers' in our blood. It was through this forum that I got to meet Yellowcake at Cambridge a few years ago and it was a real thrill to actually m...

Re: "brother" John Robb

Me, too. He was flawless at the convention and clearly hugely passionate about the band. As far as I am concerned, he is a legend. Scott.

I don't mind if I'm feeling someone who's in their 40's or 50's these days! As long as I feel summat..... Saw Siouxsie on Monday at Shepherd's Bush. Must admit that last time I saw her was back at The Rainbow, I think, in about 1981 and whilst I liked her music I was never that keen either so don't...

Re: Dreamtime on Eastenders

Did anyone notice that while Denise was selecting music for Kevin's funeral, whilst playing Ghosts by the Jam, there was also a CD copy of Dreamtime in front of her too? :lol: :shock: I saw it, too, sadly! Apparently 'Kevin' (RIP) was a huge 'stranglers' fan and a bit of a punk because they were re...

Actually building a website? How very 90s! :lol: Jim Jim's right. Building them is fun but it helps when you know some coding even when using packages such as Dreamweaver. Many people now use sites such as myspace for their web presence as there are no uploading hassles; also, there seem to be load...

Waking The Dead - fantastic series, superlative acting. Scott. Missed this one unfortunately. Very good, keep getting it mixed up with Waking The Dead though. Which one of these 2 shows had an episode with a storyline about a serial killer with a fetish of strangling women whilst holding them under ...
