Re: But you can't hear the words! The instrumentals thread

"Halcyon" came out later the same year as the cover of "It's A Fine Day" - September 1992 compared to February 1992. I think I only heard Halcyon a couple of years later, during my rave shame years. Loving the Altern8 mask, by the way. Top one, nice one, get sorted , as the wee girl chirruped! It s...

Probably not, because then it really would be proper grim rather than just Swedish grim which is the equivalent of "quite pleasant, actually" in Britain.
And it would still have been released as "Show Me Love" in Anglophonia.

Re: having a weird name and booking a ticket

Although it does mean the electronic check-in machines at Dublin airport can't read her passport, so we always have to join the slow queue. do you not just check in at the machines using the booking number? anyway, your solution (writing o instead o-umlaut) is the thing to do.

Re: UK Indiepop Dark Ages

Interesting thread. I was wondering if maybe the Indiepop Dark Ages represents an actual falling off in indiepop activity as people moved on to other music or dropped out of music as they got older. The revival then maybe is akin to other retro scenes (like mod or psych revivalism) - young people tr...

Re: what book are you reading?

apparently it was about 25% shorter when it first came out, so maybe it had far less rambling in it.

Re: what book are you reading?

I keep finding myself thinking there's a great missing novel that nobody's written, about 'our ' milieu, not just Anoraks but people similar to us, who've seen through the illusion of the work ethic and the cultural myths that sustained our parents' generation, and are looking round for better and ...

Re: what book are you reading?

One book I am definitely no longer reading is Stranger In A Strange Land, by Robert Heinlein. As my friends on Facebook will understand, this book is shite.

Re: Standard Fare

I think “brilliant” may be a bit of an overstatement. I agree that about half of their album is quite good but a number of the songs are simply university pub pop. I’ll bet every college town has a band that sounds similar to this. I only know them from seeing them live at Indietracks, but I think ...

Is Nottingham still ground zero for Anorak? It must be great having that awesome comic shop whose name I can't remember as your local.

I heard they/she do/does not really play live that much anyway. But yeah, I reckon they would be fun live. Kind of like Goth without all the annoying features of Goth.

Re: 'Orrors

Was that the one with Ruth Negga and that other bloke who is in every film? I think it is meant to be good but I have never seen it.
