Ooh, is that Sir Fred of Harris in that clip?

Re: They're bringing back The Krypton Factor!

I'd rather they brought back the Crystal Maze. The good news is that they probably are. The worrying news is that ITV1 themselves are going to revive it, rather than the bods at Chatsworth TV who devised it in the first place for Channel 4. The bad news is that it will probably be with celeb contes...

Re: Your IndieTracks 2011 Wishlist

francois (NAP) Francois and his current live incarnation would be a superb headline act for the church - would hate to see the delicacy of the music compromised in the big shed, though. I was lucky enough to catch him in the Betsey Trotwood last November and it was the best performance I saw outwit...

Looks like I got out in time last night, then! (I know, I know, proper lightweight, me. As well as being the world's slowest drinker of beer). Splendid to make all of your acquaintances last night. Hope this will be the first of many such meet-ups I can get to! Blank Frack is not allowed to go back ...

Re: Archaic but brilliant computer games we miss

I'm missing having a working BBC computer at the moment, If you're ever in the Sheffield area, I've got several still on the go (including a Master), and an Electron. They got exhibited at CG-Expo UK in Croydon in 2004 and 2005, plus last year's Retro Reunited in Huddersfield, and will hopefully ge...

Re: Archaic but brilliant computer games we miss

We have an original 128k Spectrum, and my favourite game is Nifty Lifty. It's incredibly hard. Although often I find nowadays that the hardest thing is that the Spectrum isn't at all intuitive so you want to do something obvious and it throws a hissy fit. Neato. We had Nifty Lifty on the Beeb as we...

Re: Outfit of the Day

I'm in the fortunate position in my new job (library database manager for a university) that nobody is too bothered what I wear, either, which makes a nice change. I still like to look like I've made some sort of effort, though, so it usually ends up being a smart-ish t-shirt, black jacket and trous...

Aye, looking at the website that definitely seems a whole lot more plausible.

But somehow less fun.

Re: Offbeat @ indietracks; Spotified playlist now online

Bless you, Chris. I'm a big fan of the projection-screen-at-club idea, saving as it does countless "oh bother, what song's that? I knew it once..."-type moments, harrassing of busy DJs, etc. Extremely glad to be reminded of "Twee" and "Heavenly Pop Hit" on Friday night!
