Re: The Football

I was in the learner pool in the local swimming pool with my then 3 year old daughter, and the only other two people in the pool were Norman Hunter and his grandson. I was desperate to say 'hello' but didn't want to invade his privacy. There was a picture of a shark on the pool wall, and I wanted t...

Re: T-shirts!

My girlfriend and I have been making iron-on t-shirts recently. Do you find the transfers last very long? My attempts in the past have rarely survived more than a dozen washes without peeling or ripping. My last transfer was a Strawberry Switchblade one which I had to glue the corners back on every...

Re: The Football

I used to regularly sell CD's to Dean Gordon when I worked at Virgin Megastore at Heathrow, where I also 'met' Jamie Redknapp (and Louise), Luca Vialli and some others I can't remember. Once saw Gordon Strachan going into Borders (I think) in Leeds with one of his kids. I played in the same junior t...

WOo!
That was meant as a very excited "Woo", not an ambivalent "Woo" by the way. Doesn't seem clear on reading it back....

Re: New musical discoveries

I love Cassolette too, and had it not been for stupid "real life" and "money", might have toured the west coast of the US with them this year.

Re: Your Indietracks 2012 Wishlist (and actual announcements

I'd second quite a few of those mentioned already but especially Evans The Death. I'd also love to see some or all of the following: Cassolette The Andersen Tapes The Birthday Kiss Bubblegum Lemonade or Strawberry Whiplash (better still, both) Burning Hearts Saint Etienne would be lovely Twig Sweate...

Re: The Football

In other news, I saw a twenty-something bloke in Lincoln today wearing a crisp, brand new Man City strip. Including the socks. He was only putting petrol in his car. IN LINCOLN. Some things never change. I lived in Lincoln between 80-87 and no-one at my school supported Lincoln. It was all Liverpoo...

Re: Indietracks 2011 Memories and Photos

My musical highlights were Suburban Kids, HSOL, Tiny Fireflies, Very Truly Yours and Crystal Stilts. The last band provided some welcome noise to round things off for me. But the real highlights were meeting so many lovely people for the first time, some of whom I'd previously 'met' online and other...

Re: Pic 'n' Mixx mix CD swap - what did you get?

Hello everyone, this is my first post on the forum, hope you don't mind me joining in.. I got a lovely CD made by a guy called Edwin, with a little 12 page booklet with notes on why he chose the theme 'The Punks Are Writing Love Songs', and some little collages in it. It's brilliant. Hope you like m...
