Re: Belle and Sebastian

Much like everybody else I think the two first albums and the first four EPs were brilliant, while the subsequent releases had a few gems and varying amounts of filler. There's always a track to go down as one their best in nearly every album, like Boy With The Arab Strap in BWTAS and There's Too Mu...

Re:

I made so many typos in my post, I should be immediately drawn and quartered. Back on topic: I hate anything to do with Stevie Jackson. I hate his songs, his voice, and his hair. There is a direct Stevie-to-poop ratio on every album. I think on Life Pursuit, his poop has even seeped into Stuart's b...

Besides being a great songwriter, Colin is unbelievably prolific and the nicest human being alive. I wish I could turn out half as many songs a year as he does in a month.

Re: recording on computers

I have been using Sonar and Win 98 for years. I've done an album and two EPs with that set up. If it ain't broken, don't fix it. My soundcard is an Aardvark PRO 2496. Aardvark's gone out of business, but I've never had a single problem with the soundcard, so it's ok. It has a breakout box with 4 pre...

"Air" is a brilliant song. The Owls are a vastly underrated band.

It's Brazil we go Dutch all the time. Ok, maybe not always, but it's not frowned upon at all.

Re: what time is it?

Ok, I get it, it's supposed to make it easier for you to tell whether the watch/clock is upright or upside down. Is that the correct answer?

Re: The one that got away

Moose - XYZ It's not really that I can't find it, it's just that I refuse to pay 50 quid for it. So I keep waiting for it to be reissued or for someone to donate a copy to me. I had it (think I sold it a few years ago) - unless I just can't find it on my racks. Still on my HD though. Got the origin...

Re: Who's in which band?

Currently I'm not IN the band, I am THE band, as I'm recording all by myself. And I have just released a new CD! :)

I own a guitar too.
