Re: The Beatles!

Not long before that, they played Failsworth. It's now a haven for religious nutters, next door to a caravan sales place. But quit near PlanetMicro, so it'd not all bad. Except it is. The Beatles were shit. Trite, obvious, done before tunes, dressed up in whatever clothes they could sanitise from t...

Re: the first single release of the decade

It's the first release of the "10s". The "10s" is a ten year period, otherwise known as a "decade". Why does it even matter? Enjoy some nice free songs! It's been said before (by me), there's no year nought. BC1 to AD1. So, the first year of the first "decade" (that'd be your quotation marks, not r...

Re: the first single release of the decade

That's lovely and all, but what counting system are you on? One with a year nought, maybe? Actually, bet it isn't lovely. Probably a bit shit. But either way, it'll be this decade, and not the next one. Kthxbai. Tb xxx

Re: Things I am listening to now then

The Singing Loins - Start Screaming. I used to think they were getting better, but it was an illusion fostered by the awesomeness of "So Long My Old China" on Songs to Hear Before You Die , which made me blub (a lot, especially this time of year). Truth is they peaked on Songs for the Organ . One of...

Re: Your favourite cover versions...

Is it very wrong that I'm pretty sure I didn't know Supernaut was a cover? Or maybe I did know that. If I did I've forgotten. It is a pretty incredible song. My brother nearly lost his mind when Ministry played it live one time when we saw them. Or maybe it was acid and heat stroke getting to him. ...
