Re: Things I am listening to now then

The Goon Sax. I think this might be my favourite record so far this year. https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRYrQOmN13RZ8y-bhIjq5DSHUJ6mFcQP70120WB_CiLx8BF8Deq7A There's something so comforting about hearing Robert Forster's son singing about haircuts and mentioning Edwyn Collins....

Re: nonfiction books about '60s girl groups, soul, pop rock?

The best book I read on the subject was Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow - Girl Groups from the '50s on... by Charlotte Greig. There's a second hand copy on Amazon for 1p at the moment. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Will-You-Still-Love-Tomorrow/dp/1853810029/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458951356&sr=1-1...

Re: Lie about Bands

I told my friend that Dan Treacy was Hugh Grant's brother. Dunno if that counts. She believed me anyway. Got her own back when she told me that, back in Tokyo, she had a pair of hover boots and that she could get me some posted over if I wanted. Did I?! God, I was so excited until she laughed in my ...

Re: 'Orrors

Watched three 'Orros on Sunday, thought I may as well share my thoughts here: The Witch Actually saw it at the cinema. Brilliant atmosphere of creeping dread, religious mania, nightmarish imagery, amazing acting with Yorkshire accents and the world's most sinister goat. The attention to period deta...

I would happily never hear Write About Love ever again, even if it meant forfeitting I Didn't See it Coming, which is pretty fine. The rest of the album reeks.

Re: I've got to DJ at a wedding...

Thanks everyone! I don't really have any pop music on vinyl (although I think I've got Milkshake on 12" somewhere) so can't play that stuff. So far, I've got some obvious girl group/ Motown & Northern stuff (Baby I Love You, Slow Fizz, Stoned Love, River Deep, I can't Help Myself, Tainted Love, The ...

I've got to DJ at a wedding...

...so what shall I play? I think the guests will be roughly 1/3 relatives/ older people, 1/3 'normal' people and 1/3 hipsterish types. Think I have an hour slot. So far, I'm thinking of Motown, girl groups, a bit of Northern Soul and some Blondie/ Roxy/ some decent indie stuff. Someone suggested The...

Re: what book are you reading?

Has anyone read any Elena Ferrante? Keep having her recommended to me but evrythingform the cover to the synopsis puts me off.

Just read my first Kent Haruf book (Plainsong), it was great. A tiny bit schmaltzy and the female characters are generally 2 dimensional but a lovely read anyway.

That piece about the new Pastels album is beyond embarrassing. I like the rest of the magazine though. I miss fanzines.

Ha! I bought A Home at the End of the World just through reading the posts up thread. So thanks. I'm about half way through and really really enjoying it, much more so than the other book I got after reading about it on here (the bloody silly House of Sleep). I've got Adrian Tomine's Killing and Dyi...

Re: Music for Misfits: The Story of Indie

Much, much better than I imagined or even hoped for. It's as though someone actually did a bit of research. Definitely worth a watch. And a laugh at Alan McGee as he gives both barrels to C86, conveniently forgetting that Side A track 1 was a song from his record label, his beloved Primal Scream, a...

Nice Day For A Sulk, from the same album.... That song was the first chink in the armour for me. Particularly following Chalet Lines. Talking of which, does anyone remember the review of FYH... in NME? while 'Chalet Lines' is a minimal, brittle sketch of half-forgotten romance. http://www.nme.com/r...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

I prefer to give the inhabitants a say
Before you blow their town away
I like to watch them play
I like to marvel at the random beauty of a simple village girl
Why should she be the one who’s killed?
I also like IYFYCIL but these are some of the shittest lyrics SM's ever committed to vinyl.

Re: tipple, sauce, hootch, etc.

Where do you get them from? I just buy my ice in nowadays which seems a bit grand, like those people who buy ready sliced/ grated cheddar. Plus, once I forgot, saw a friend, went for a couple of pints and had to cycle home with water pissing out of my bag.
