Re: Albums that have never been released on Vinyl?

The first and final Gorkys LPs only came out on CD. I wish someone would do a decent series of reissues for them.

Re: what book are you reading?

Is it just me who's feeling a bit jaded by the templatey feel of a lot of new writing just now? Sorry for quoting two of your quotes on the trot, I'm not a stalker or anything. Anyway, I echo the 'no's above. I even disagree with you about Sarah Hall (although that short story collection isn't one ...

Re: what book are you reading?

Wow! Amazing. I'm increasingly fascinated by the way Europe's optimism in the 1950s was expressed not just politically - through the creation of social security programmes, universal healthcare, transnational political structures - but aesthetically, through design and architecture. (Modernism? Is ...

Twerps

Anyone off to see these tonight? Saw their gig in Manchester last night and it was so good. Quite a bit more sugary that on record. Highly recommended... However, the real reason I have for mentioning them on here is that if anyone is going to either of the London shows over the next 2 evenings, wou...

God, how boring. I thought the Reading festival was dull but one where you have to do maths sounds even worse than one where you ahve to read.













































Sorry.

That's the best Pastels interview I've read in a very long time, certainly by far the best from the current crop promoting Slow Summits.

Re: The Pastels

Insane Energy Drop is a great mix too, containing a soul song that I'd been after for ages There's a reissue (possibly grey area) 7" of that Softiques song kicking around. Monorail Music gets it every now and then. It's a fabulous tune! It's pretty cheap on discogs, too: Blabbermouth! How many have...

Re: The Pastels

That is odd.... Stephen's tweeted something (somewhere- I can't find it now) hinting that they'll be streaming a few tracks prior to the release of the album. I know that this is common practice but I kind of hope they don't, particularly seeing as 2 of the 9 tracks have been done as part of that Ma...

Re: Chickfactor London shows, 17-18 November

Does anyone know if there's anywhere decent to go after the show on Saturday night? Also, any suggestions of a decent pub near the venue? Having said that, is it an early start - 6pm or something?

Re: Pointless

Was The Smiths round in the final or penultimate round? Anyway, I got 3 Pointlesses in that and my wife got 3 in the Blur final round too. (Actually, I kind of cheated with The Smiths one because I gave 4 answers rather than 3; 3 were pointless and my other choice (That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore) was...

Re: What Are Some Good 2012 Indiepop Albums So Far?

Despite being assured by Stephen that there would be a new album out this year, I remain sceptical about The Pastels appearing on this list.

Re: What Are Some Good 2012 Indiepop Albums So Far?

Does the Lightships album count? That's my favourite record this year. Go-kart Mozart's latest one has a sort of indipop link too. I wasn't too taken with the Tender Trap album; it was ok but lacked the killer tunes of some of Amelia's other bands. Maybe Pete Momtchiloff was the real hero behind Hea...

It wasn't a mistake; they've just this second had it in. How curious (or not).
