Re: Indietracks Clashfinder

Yeah, it showed me that I don't really listen to many of the bands that are playing. Score! Last.fm will only tell me your 50 most listened-to bands, which isn't really enough to cover everything you'll want to see. Still, it should get the highlights. Oh, and best go easy on that Indietracks compi...

Indietracks Clashfinder

I've done a printable side-by-side view of the running-order again this year. As a bonus, you can tell it your Last.fm username and it'll highlight your favourite bands for you (assuming, of course, your favourite bands are twee indie-pop and not Iron Maiden or something).

What are you on about?

Please explain.

Re: Birmingham

Anyway, the post was just to say that I'm thinking of switching to Diamond, I know there are not as many as the others but from what I've seen, the 50 frequency is pretty decent and they're probably quieter than the others. I think the monthly pass is cheaper too but I'm not sure. If you're willing...

My father had taken the paper since he moved to the area as a student, but even he cancelled after its recent "relaunch" turned the churnalism up to 11.

I've seen a fox in the snow twice, now; alas, neither was accompanied by a boy on a bike (what are you like?).
