Re: Indietracks 2016 photos and memories

Sorry Dan, didn't want to offend you. I thought it was a light-hearted comment but I'm sorry it came across the wrong way. I hope you enjoyed the weekend.

Re: Indietracks 2016 photos and memories

I didn't either but I thought "what's this, have Martha gone all Urban?" It was the wife, who's got a tolerance for these things, that enlightened me. "Urban"? "Tolerance"? Seriously? Do you have no idea how problematic this post is? Tolerance in respect to liking Urban music which I'm no fan of. S...

Re: Indietracks 2016 photos and memories

Get the only gripe out the way first. As Pete Green wrote, "no danger of hearing Catfish....." but there is a danger of hearing Drake. Why a DJ at Indietracks, if he's read the programme notes, should play Drake at one of the discos in the shed puzzles me. I hear that "popular" music in every shop ...

Re: Clothing considerations

I have expanded and so some old fave t-shirts maybe declined. I have a new Michelin t-shirt and a new God Save The Queen pic cover which should do the job. Bought them in Uniqlo last week, I wonder if I'm becoming as bad as those teenage girls you see wearing Ramones t-shirts. Might wear one of my o...

Re: The Sarah Records thread

Just started it. I'm cautiously turning each page wondering if my name might appear. Clare has probably scrubbed me from her memory and really I didn't contribute much to the Sarah records story, well nothing that under thirteens should read anyway.[/quote] Were you in a Sarah band?

Re: The Sarah Records thread

I've just finished the Michael White book. Has anyone else read it? I liked it but in the end I just wanted more of it. It's done well but it somehow seems a little incomplete. Maybe that's just the nature of the subject matter though, eh. Just started it. I'm cautiously turning each page wondering...

I got Belle & Sebastian. Hmm, I was hoping to get Neutral Milk Hotel, I knew I shouldn't have picked that strange cartoon character girl playing a guitar, I don't even know what cartoon she springs from. I now expect a storm of disapprobation from anorakers in the know. I mean B & S are OK, I've alw...

Re: Records of 2015

Bang The Drum by the Maureens. I think they're Dutch and if you love Teenage Fanclub you should like them.

Get the first lp too. Brilliant powerpop, trust me.

Re: Indiepop in the 21st Century

I loved that Strange Idols song. And the Cavalcade made many a decent song in their short life.

Can You Keep A Secret? by the Birthday Kiss. So damn catchy.

I Am A Believer by the Poems. Also damn catchy.

Julia, We Don't Live In the Sixties by the Indelicates. See above for description.

Girls in bands

Yet another mediocre music doc on BBC4. This time we had some female journalist carefully picking through the BBC archives ( hence no Huggy Bear ) and interviewing any woman who deemed it worthy to help fulfil said journalist's vision of "girls" in pop. Started well with a couple of Liver Birds but ...

Re: The Sarah Records thread

I attended the Rough Trade event. Thought I'd be fighting my way through gangs of Japanese Sarah obsessives but it was a very quiet affair. I suppose if the book had been written in the nineties there would have been hoards of people. Matt and Clare were on good form and the questions thrown at them...

Re: Music for Misfits: The Story of Indie

Dreadful. The three programmes, not Romo, which is beyond dreadful. As probably one of the few people on here that was into music at punk's conception and followed its development as it turned into post punk, indie, c86 etc., with a swift swerve away from Oi and Goth, I found the whole thing loosely...

Re: BBC Four - The Story of Indie.

That wasn't great was it? Not a mention of the Desperate Bicycles whose rallying cry surely inspired a dozen or more bands to form. What about Fast, Deptford Fun City, Step Forward? It was even worse when we ventured into the eighties when it seemed that only Rough Trade and Creation were of any not...

Martha, Martha, Martha. Me and the wife got in our dinghy and rowed back to the Premier Inn after them. Probably my most enjoyable performance by anyone, better even than the Lovely Eggs or the Cavalcade back in the past. So sad that we could only see four Colour Me Wednesday songs as we had to fron...
