Re: anyone eles here likes that 2006 drum intro and wants it back as well?

Curiously I've never really listened to the MC5; I find it difficult to get past the vocals, all despite that I obviously recognise and love their influence on the likes of Spacemen 3. Having that music ID'd does seem to take the charm away. When there was still the possibility that it might have be...

Re: Apple lossless

Anything on the version of the FALAA mixes used, or if they've got the correct '84 version of Body Electric on Body & Soul? They're the most common mistakes with the various streaming/digital services. Also that only the shortened vinyl versions of several Floodland tracks have been available for qu...

Re: anyone eles here likes that 2006 drum intro and wants it back as well?

I quite like 'Weird Dutch Drunken Trumpet Music' on some of the old tapes (1984). It's the ending of Sister Ann by the MC5, from about 6:05 here. Credit to Scardwel for the ID. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tnmqu__cnJA Memorably described as "lederhosen oompah music on bad acid" on one of the FB gr...

Re: What?

Coincidentally, I'd noticed that a bunch of Front 242 shows from 1987 to 1991 just recently appeared on the various streaming services as well - and now I'm wondering if the same explanation is behind those.

Yeah, I have to say that whichever side you take post-split, Wayne is a very engaging raconteur, and probably a very good guy to go for a few pints with, at least so long as you get out before things get messy.

If you speed it up to 2x it's a far more pleasant experience. Mostly due to it being over sooner.

Peter Hook and the Light doing Movement and Power, Corruption & Lies in Dublin. This was the show he subsequently released, so if you buy it or stream it, this was the one.

Re: Proof, Morrisey's a Wank of the Highest Order

Morrissey is one of the most self-obsessed, narcissistic "pop stars" we have. It's all "me me me me me" with him, he loves putting himself forward, he preens himself on the attention he gets, and for all his pretences at being a sensitive artist for studenty bedsit types to relate to, at heart he's ...

Re: RSD BBC Sessions release

I'd sooner have the tracks out there, even if mislabelled, to be honest. It's true that the neglectful mismanagement of the Sisters back catalog has been shocking, but the other side of the coin is that if one gets Von involved to do it properly, it will likely never happen. Obvious best case is qua...

Tickets bought, all 3.

Likewise I highly doubt these are going to go ahead, and if they do it'll be very touch and go for me, but I know I'd have regretted not buying.
