Euratom Rebels, obviously.
We're surely due an electroclash revival, so we'll say they're an electroclash duo based in Stoke Newington (although the members are originally from Chelmsford and Brussels).

Everyone should read this magnificent Sean Price interview by Gareth Ware. It's kind of everything.

Re: The distant islands fantasy travel thread

So it was hard enough to get to Ascension Island already, but now the runway's out of action.

Re: Vegan & Vegetarian Food

Actually the robot was the good bit. They were selling it as being beneficial to the cows quality of life. To emphasize this they showed how non-robot milked cows lived which is what made me decide to become vegan. If all cows were milked by robots I might not have become vegan. OK, now it makes se...

I just saw a report on the news about robots milking cows and I've decided to become vegan.
Surely this goes against everything we understand about tonieee and robots.

I might come back and write a "part 2". I might just leave it at that.
I hope you do James. Fantastic post, beautiful pics, beautiful times. I'm in bits thinking about the Deirdres. They always do that to me. So do your dinosaur trousers, for that matter.

Wonderful post, Trev - thanks for sharing! Yeah, I miss Spiral Scratch - the club nights were fantastic too. There are loads of other things I could have mentioned on that blog post.

Indiepop high points 2007-2017

This week I've been thinking about the last ten years of indiepop, because it's ten years ago this week since my first solo record came out. Of wider general interest, I expect, Indietracks marked its tenth anniversary last year. And it must be getting on for ten years since Anorak started up. So I'...

Re: Pete Green!

Last week I was a studio guest on the Steel&Wire show on the Sheffield Live radio station. It was a lot of fun. We had a pleasant natter and I played a little live session.
