Re: XTC Nonsuch 5.1 Blu-ray Package

I got the original when it came out and never really listened to it. When I saw this thread I thought I'd give it a spin and I can't believe how good an album I have been missing for all these years. I will have to buy the 5.1 version now. Looking forward to next spring when Drums & Wires gets t...

Re: From the jam All Mod Cons

Having seen the Jam with Weller, I went to see From the Jam in Dublin last May and thought they were fantastic, better in fact than the Jam. Going over to play Golf for the weekend soon near Oxford and FTJ are playing in Oxford on the Friday so might have to go again, great band, you'll really enjoy.

Re: MIB in Guildford, March 12th.

All set to go this evening only to find out that ferry to Wales has been cancelled due to high winds. Typical. The last time was the Wonky bus trip when Snow cancelled my flight but i am going to get there tomorrow whatever it takes. :x

Re: New Tour - Setlist Spoilers

I don't particularly care what people post about the set list. Come on, who gives a shit really about any 'spoilers'? So what - you (may) know what they are going to play - but you don't know how they are going to SOUND, surely that's what it's all about??? Or am I on my own here??? No you're not o...

Re: Are you sick of hearing Golden Brown live?

Hugh Cornwell revisits the song (listen to the GB version included on the LA echoplex live recording, the "mariachi" version of it to name a few) and it sounds good and fresh to my ears. Stranglers version is academic and adds nothing new. Why add something new? It was massive because of ...

Clockwork Angels

Got the Classic Rock version of the new Rush album and just can't stop listening to it. After 20 albums I really think that this could be their best yet, fantastic bass sound as well.
