Re: Sleater-Kinney!

Very much fallen for this now, i've averaged a couple of listens a day so far this week and it easily stands up to their old records. It's also convinced me that all albums should be 10 tracks long. Another one to add to that short list of bands who can come back and be as good, if not better than t...

Re: Sleater-Kinney!

2 listens so far, albeit whilst making dinner last night so havent heard it properly - The download code isnt active until today due to the US release date which scuppered my plans for the work commute this morning. I like what i've heard though,i'll be very surprised if it isnt amongst my favourite...

Yet you had the opportunity to choose the new round and DIDN'T choose South America..

Re: TV Quick: talk about things on telly succinctly

I quite like Nolan but I think I'd probably like him more if I could get over how ridiculously easy it seems to be for him to hack everything and anything. He just does some fast typing and makes a few faces and he's sorted. This is a real bugbear of mine over a number of shows.. well, 2.. Willow i...

Re: Pop quiz! Who has been in the most Indietracks bands?

At a guess, Ian Cowen has played in 5 different bands... anyone confirm this? Ian probably can :) (pocketbooks, Sunny Street, Electrophonvintage and The Understudies.. Cant think of a 5th..) Dan Chapman must be up there? and Johhny Drums.. Pocketbooks, The Loves, Cosines - there must be more for th...

Re: TV Quick: talk about things on telly succinctly

We saw (and enjoyed) Season 1 - even though it quite quickly became somewhat ludicrous in it's plot. That was enough for us though, i think we may have watched the first one or two episodes of season 2 but then it became one of those shows that just clogged up room on the Sky+ and eventually was dec...

307 plays alone for The Manics came last month due to their Holy Bible shows.. Other than that, good year for The Chills - the 2 shows i saw in the Summer were highlights of the year.. Night Flowers are surprisingly high (no bad thing).. Still havent clicked with the latest Comet Gain album, but it ...

Re: Don't Google It - A Monday Survival Quiz

Did you notice that as I knew I had no chance of knowing the answer to the B & S question that I didn't even read it properly and thought I had to pick two of the four options? I did the same with the Beatles question, and only put 2 answers instead of 4, although i would have had to have guessed a...

Okay, can Anorak be interested by a Christmas music quiz (notwithstanding everyone's got Christmas stuff to do, this thread has generally dwindled from it's glory(ish) days and Anorak seems to have entered a permanent semi-comatose state)?!?!? Well, let's see if anyone has a few moments to spare to...

I'm feeling a little confident with this one.. i expect it's misguided. 1. Bob Wratten has just returned with a new band, Lightning in a Twilight Hour.

Re: Music small talk, music big talk

How come they get a Pat Nevin DJ set and Indietracks doesn't? One of the many highlights of Bowlie 2 was the Pat Nevin DJ set on the Sunday night, mostly for the conga during Orange Juice, but equally for spending the majority of his set drinking qudaruple vodka red bulls with Trev. Yes, Indietrack...

They're building a pub under a pub ! Ah! Not quite..
