DYLAN (Bob) & Murder Most Foul

Whatever your perspective on Bob Dylan, his new song released this morning deserves a listen. The more I hear it the more I hear and there are shades of Von's writing in their - or vice versa most likely - never really struck me before - but its startling here. Wonderful words for the strangest of t...

Yes - just seen this - 29+ years - there's always hope! Saw them last year at The RFH (Meltdown) they were superb.

Thanks. I see “same master� used for Were All Aware Of That. I was interested as someone had taken the time to register the test pressing at discogs. Plus you never know, the pressing might have been different quality wise. Andrew the 50 were done as white labels on black vinyl ahead of the pic...

Re: Meltdown and The Furs

I'm off to see the Furs on Friday and have not been as excited about seeing a band from my youth since Magazine reformed/played Oxford a few years ago. Which got me thinking, would Eldritch bother to see the Furs in 2018? no Ashton but his admiration for Butler's lyrics holds strong. Wonder how he ...

Re: Wanted

Thanks Flagg. cannot believe you want Brimstone :-) completists only - and yes that would include me! I'd have thought NRUB would be the oddest ask :) good point - NRUB has a certain charm, possibly due to the fact the guy that made that record put himself on the front cover!

Re: Wanted

Over 34 years of collecting I have made the mistake of selling some of my records here and there, and maybe even losing a few to ex-girlfriends or in moves. I'd like to get these back if possible, so I thought I'd put up a list here. Yes I am nostalgic. If anyone has these items and is interested i...

That's funny you reference the Talking Heads, Randall. I always thought would be a particularly good tune for the Sisters to cover. Especially a version like this... a la "I Was Wrong". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYJWq9Jtf94 agreed, great song - I'd always imagined the Sisters covering 'Life D...

Studio sessions certainly - but don't believe many of the live ones came from the band.. other than one or two notable exceptions.

As for Paul's tapes, nearer the bar than the band :D

This takes me back - I knew Paul as Shakey Paul from Record Fairs back in the day (Griffin, Astoria, The One Out near Roundhay Park and others). Last saw him at The Ritz gig in Manchester 85 (we were supposed to be giving him a lift) - not sure to where as we lived in different cities - but out of M...

..for as long as folk by tickets.
