I've just been to Tescos to get some supplies in for a couple of events we're going to this weekend and came across Greene King's "The Beer To Dine For" - it comes in 750 cl bottles and was about £1.69 a bottle - I would guess it will be similar to their IPA, which is mighty fine although...

The Slits weren't always an all girl band - after Palm Olive left they recruited Budgie on drums before he joined The Banshees. On first listen they were shockingly awful but did have some sort of strange appeal on further hearing, if you could manage to bring yourself to do it! I'm not sure that I ...

Wadey - there's a distinct Bonzo Dog/Viv Stanshall influence here, to my ears anyway. I liked it, mind you I'm currently pissed and this sort of thing is just what goes well with pints of snakebite!! I bet I have some strange dreams as well, once I get to sleep! This is the sort of stuff that Friday...

Crass mentioned The Passions supporting The Cure - they were on The Cure's Fiction Records before going to Polydor - so I dug out "Michael and Miranda", their Fiction records LP, and what a great album that is. "Oh No It's You" still brings a lump to my throat, it has a lot of me...

For Wadey and his young pals who didn't see the band with Hugh in and who are now calling them a cabaret act, you should have seen them in Hugh's final few years, brass section and all - now that WAS a cabaret act!! The current line up with "youngsters" like Baz and Paul (you were 6 when h...

Wadey has dangled the bait, but then I re-read what (s)he'd written and I thought that really there's no point geting into all this again. What I would say to Wadey is go to a Stranglers gig and tell me you don't enjoy it, that's what it's all really about as the past's gone and won't come back, acc...

Norfolk Coast - Hugh's solo stuff has never done much for me even when he was still in the band.
