Re: It's terrific by train

Potentially of interest to certain Anoraks: Raildar, a website with various UK train things, including (at last) an interactive Google map showing the position of every passenger train in the country in real time.

I *know*.

Re: The folk

A few days ago I saw Cath & Phil Tyler. Anyone else heard them? She's American and he's North Briton, so you get this kind of mix of English and US folk styles. No, I don't really know what I'm on about, but they were ace! I bought this by them: [bandcamp width=350 height=470 album=1184032534 size=l...

Re: Indietracks announcements - 28-30 July 2017

Cate Le Bon is quite famous isn't she? I feel a bit silly for not really knowing. Any recommended listening, anyone? For something gentler, folky and beautiful I'd suggest maybe the first album, Me Oh My - I really like Sad Sad Feet . The albums get more upbeat and possibly poppier and more experim...

Re: Indietracks announcements - 28-30 July 2017

Lovely surprise to see MSTU playing! I thought the show they did last year would be just a one-off. Brill! Cate Le Bon is quite famous isn't she? I feel a bit silly for not really knowing. Any recommended listening, anyone? Really looking forward to Grace Petrie - she's one of those people I hear ga...

It'd be especially nice if you stay up at the expense of the illegitimate franchise.
Losing to them three nights ago courtesy of a ninetysixth-minute winner was assuredly not part of the greater plan. Botheration, sod and toss.

Re: Sheffield

Also - I'm definitely going to Preston Friday if anyone would like a lift. I'm staying in a Premier Inn. I'm planning to drive there in the afternoon so I can have a detour to good old fun packed Blackpool and eat chips on the windy sea front. Coming back Saturday lunchtime-ish. Ah... I wouldn't ha...

This was just the greatest thing. I'm still on a high. Even Indietracks itself has its work cut out now. Thanks again, Jo and Chris!

Re: Sheffo 23/02 - Peaness/Nervous Twitch/Ganglions

I can't decide whether Peaness is the best band name in the world or the worst. Either way it's certainly of its time. I'll look forward to seeing 'em anyway - hearing a lot of good things. Thanks for making another good thing happen, Dan.

It's probably best for me not to go out midweek these days anyway. I'm thinking of going to the pub on Friday if any one fancies it? Maybe. Let me know if you do!

Oh it's shocking isn't it that. Rather indefensible really. But I can't help laughing my head off at the ''My kids are getting no Christmas presents now because of you'' line.
Genuinely hilarious. Shades of John 'Bring Yer Facking Dinner' Sitton.
