I've been listening to this tonight. 7-CD box set. ALL KILLER NO FILLER!*

Re: Game of Thrones

Dany's clearly going to go full on army-slaying with her dragons though, isn't she? And Jorah's heading to her too who's a far better battle strategist as Tyrion. BIG mic drop by the Queen of Thorns wasn't it? How will that curveball mindfuck play with Jaime, eh? PS: Needs more Sandor. Much more Sa...

Re: General Chat About Films And That

Having a nearly-four year old, he's just started to show the bit of patience required to get through a film. Anyway, we watched Boss Baby all together and I absolutely loved it, rather shamelessly. Nice bit of humour for the adults and a good pace to keep him interested.

Re: chart pop / RnB

I DJed a wedding recently, and the brief was indie / motown and modern pop. So the following went down brilliantly and I love them! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQF5aHVOW5s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMK_npDG12Q https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqyT8IEBkvY Bangin' tunes as shit DJ's say!

Re: Indiepop high points 2007-2017

I don't think I could create any kind of list as I don't feel well enough qualified in "teh indiepop wayz" and most of the last ten years has consisted of me doing more boring adult things like buying a house, getting married and having a baby and less fun, carefree things like going to gigs a reckl...

Re: The Football

Its like Sheridan staged the whole move to Notts County move, purposely being shit and then waltzing back in, walking on water to rescue us yet again. Takes a special kind of talent to do that. Mustn't be easy.

The Football

It'd be especially nice if you stay up at the expense of the illegitimate franchise. Losing to them three nights ago courtesy of a ninetysixth-minute winner was assuredly not part of the greater plan. Botheration, sod and toss. gc It's alright. We got this (again!) https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/...

Re: The Football

Yeah it was last night. Boosted the crowd to 7,200 from the regulation 3,500. I enjoyed it, in between agonising pain from a tooth abscess. I got locked out of that Grimsby match, got a call from a mate saying it was full over an hour to kick off. I'd have been better being a Grimsby fan that day. W...

Oh it's shocking isn't it that. Rather indefensible really. But I can't help laughing my head off at the ''My kids are getting no Christmas presents now because of you'' line.

Records Of 2016

I was looking hard because I thought this topic already got started but, uh, it seems it hadn't. Do you people not care about music in this year. Must be all the deaths, innit?

Re: The Hidden Cameras

After several further listens it keeps reminding me of the Magnetic Fields in a way. BY 'way', I mean the way it effortlessly drifts from quaint trad-folk like Log Drivers Waltz to some gorgeous slide-guitar country vibes. It's rapidly becoming my favourite album of theirs.

Re: The Radio Dept.

I love how you just come across a band that's been out for, like fifteenfuckingyears and completely fall in love with them as I have with The Radio Dept. I feel like I'm drowning in a really pleasing and good way every time I listen to them. Which has been non-stop for about 3 days now. Here's to mo...

Re: The Hidden Cameras

I absolutely love the new LP off just one listen. He never strays too far from that brilliant Hidden Cameras DNA but changes enough to make each record interesting in its own way. I love the country/soul vibe he's got going on this one though.

Re: Greggs

Tried two 'new' things from Greggs on Saturday. Well, they may not be new, I've not had anything from there in a few years. Katsu Chicken Pasty Hmm, pretty decent. Very mellow curry flavour, bit of background heat. A sort of coconutty curry concoction. The yellow crusty stuff on the outside was a bi...

Has anyone heard their cover of "I Wanna Be Startin' Something"? It's brilliant, I don't know how old it is.

Re: Halifax

Does any Indiepop happen over Oldham way? I put an indiepop disco on in Oldham once in 1999. The only venue that would even entertain it was a gay club and it had to be on a Thursday night. I was keen to play vinyl but they only had CD decks so I hired some Cold War-era duo-turntables-in-a-flight-c...

Re: Indietracks 2016 photos and memories

I got a medusa-like glare for playing Supertramp at GUTC one year. The DJ who dropped Drake has massive cojones IMO.
