Bernie Ecclestone newspaper advertisement

Not sure what's to be gained (by the watch company at least) using the image of a bruised and battered Bernie Eccleston in a newspaper ad. Is it an attempt at humour or a two fingered gesture towards his attackers? Very strange.

Re: The Ashes thread

Never been a lover of golf or cricket and yet I enjoy the Ryder Cup and the Ashes because of the rivalry. I'll probably be slaughtered by fellow Scots on this site, but I haven't missed much of the Ashes coverage due to working night shifts. There was a point in the second test which reflected the f...

Re: World Cup 2018 Bid

I think the notion that Blatter is more interested in his own legacy is nearer to the mark. He Introduced the first World cup in Asia, Africa and now the Middle East. Of course, that could not have happened without a rule change and why, for the first time, two World cups were chosen at the same tim...

Re: Iron Maiden fed up of making loadsamoney????

Heard the new single on Planet Rock and wasn't impressed. They are capable of better in my opinion. Not a fan really but a decent band.

Canadian view on Punk rock - 1977

Stranglers merit a mention (barely) in this interview from 1977 - taken from the CBC archives.

Some other interesting interviews on the same page - notably the Clash.

Re: Down in the Sewer ...

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh. Down in the sewer Kicking at a lot of empty Four X lager cans And there sure are a lot of them around here How did I get down here?
