Re: The Football

When he falters, "We've been written off by many people, you know..." I'm floored.

Re: The Orchids

On a similar ^ note, I've sacked work for the afternoon to read the Orchids chapter in the Sarah book and I'm now having a dram and seriously considering writing a whole book about them.

Oooh, thankyou. This all sounds right up my street. Even though I'm often too drunk to know what my street is. Or what town I live in.

Re: The folk

Thanks for all the suggestions, comrades. I need to have a proper look.

I'm not actually averse to earnest folk and I'm still slightly obsessing over the Radio Ballads, which I won't be able to afford until my child is a pensioner: http://www.topicrecords.co.uk/category/ ... o-ballads/

Re: Maps - glorious maps

Alright then, you're on: crowd-sourced map of field recordings around the shores of Britain And the London sound map , which floors me every time. On both of these, maps are a means to an end rather than an end in themselves, but still. Maps. Sounds. New ways to think about the world that don't make...

The folk

Anorak, I kinda want to know more about contemporary folk music. There's a couple of things I love, like that Alasdair Roberts record about St Kilda , and I really quite like The Unthanks and, um, some other stuff but it all feels a bit vague and I'm not even sure what qualifies as folk and what doe...

Re: Something for the weekend: Cryptic POP!

I'm laughing because work is horrible and insane and all I want is to sit here and get more than seven of these. I almost don't want you to tell us the answers, Andy, and for this to turn into some sort of Sisyphean fun where we just delightedly post numbers at each other.
