Chris, always liked the Chapel. Maybe my age but sitting in a pew with a cup of tea suits me these days.

Perfect! We need to do a ride together! In fact forget the ride, just the tea would be lovely. Doing anything in May? :smile:

Just listened three times in a row. One of their best I reckon. All the real men live in Macc...

Say what you will but they certainly always had the audience in their palms. I've just twigged the inflatable sheep, fantastic!

I'd rather go down the pub!

Chris, what did you have in mind? May is going to be busy for me. We have damp-proofers coming in the last week in April followed by kitchen fitters followed by a plumber and electrician. And plasterers!

On the other hand, most of the professionals will want me well out of the way!

Blimey, sounds like you're having the house rebuilt from scratch! Just a one-nighter really.... mid afternoon to late next morning sort of thing maybe? Open to all ideas. Train to Matlock and wander round there perhaps? Barley Mow at Bonsall? :smile: Apparently Mrs Perrin is taking me for a week in Warslow 5th-12th so it'd be any time after that, midweek would be good.

(sorry folks, myself and 'Hound had better take this one off-line now :smile: )

My brother was trawling for first press Cardiacs a few weeks ago and I spotted this wee beastie. Turns out the seller used to play guitar for the band and this is the copy given to him on joining. The first punk album I heard as a kid in Oz. I shall enjoy this with a strong coffee shortly as I've the house to myself for the weekend.

Reproduce at will!

Nothing yet, but will be up at six in the morning for another trip to Printworks London tomorrow, before they close.
Forever.

Messrs Vanian, Sensible & Co at Oxford O2 :smile: . Right down at the front which was possibly a little foolhardy at my advanced age with all the jumping up and down, but hey ho. How did your visit up the big smoke go Verena?

Ha, excellent, so are your knees also refusing to speak to you today??

It was brilliant, ta, possibly enjoyed it even more this time, maybe just knowing what to expect so we just relaxed and had fun - well, if you count nine hours dancing pretty much straight through as relaxing...

Evidence once more that bikepacking provides endlessly useful life skills. Like being able to roll home to bed at 3am on a school night and manage a reasonable impression of being awake and capable at work whilst being sleep deprived...

Superb selection of fine techno of the harder kind...friendly crowd...venue breathtaking as ever, will be such a shame to lose it, but so glad we found it just in time.

I'm definitely having way more fun in my middle age than I did in my youth...freed from any hopes and expectations, but also many fears and inhibitions...brilliant! And all enjoyed on just tap water!

Still can't get my head round that London is doable as a day trip on the National Express. Speaking of which, brilliantly Welsh coach driver, hilarious....Lots of giggling valleys "girls" at the front, so as we get into the city, he gets his microphone out and starts "explaining London" to us...."So now we are on the Embankment...Can any of you tell me the name of the river? No? Starts with a T? It's the Taff of course... Along by here now you'll see lots of very posh shops where you can't afford anything. Can't go in there ladies with your pension credit...or your PiP....etc. etc..."

Anyway Reg, why do you ask, you were there right?? On the way back to the coach station, this rolled up piece of tarp on a ledge at sort of chest height right next to the pavement suddenly burst into loud giggles just as we walked past! Frightened the life out of us! Surely that was you???

Trials of Cato. 2nd album currently Gog Magog. We saw them last night in Church Stretton :shock: and they were excellent. I got into them in 2019 and we got the chance to see them in church in Dunton, Bedfordshire (Dunton Folk) and it was just perfect.
Shortly after one of them, Will Addison, left and is currently cycling to Singapore or somesuch :-bd . Will was replaced by Polly Bolton and obviously they changed. I've not really given the 2nd album a fair listening to, so I am now.

Not listening to as such but I bumped into the drummer from EMF yesterday. Had a good chinwag, he's started collecting vintage drum sets, mostly wood framed and has moved into a place local to me.
Mellowed a bit from their heyday :cool:

They've re-done the film too and that's getting screened in Sept, I think. Just brilliant. The vinyl has added songs ie Tom Tom Club etc. All they need now is to sort themselves out, get a few gigs together, make $$$ and the rest of us can enjoy it live. All too many bands reform and make a shot-show if it. I think these guys would do it proper.

Can't POSSIBLY be the 50th anniversary edition .... I'm 56 and it came out when I was about 16 ... 40th surely ...

"Stop Making Sense is a 1984 American concert film featuring a live performance by the American rock band Talking Heads.
Directed by Jonathan Demme, it was shot over the course of three nights at Hollywood's Pantages Theater in December 1983"
