Playing Belfast too! I'm not actually a huge Cure Fan (I like their more cheerful stuff - goth credentials out the window! ;-)) but they're playing Belfast so very exciting. Now if various variants behave...Any chance of And Also the Trees as support?!

Re: The Great Heartland Biscuit Thread™

It's quite interesting, you know, the number of biscuits that are named after revolutionaries.

Re: The Great Heartland Biscuit Thread™

The new Sisters biography informs in a footnote that :von: and Gary were fans of fruit shortcake, the greatest biscuit of them all. Now the next question is, of course, do they dunk?!!!

Times change. Some of the things he said back in the day were cringeworthy. We've all been out of our face in our 20s and talked **** to be fair and whilst I'm not one for hunting down people because of a tweet when they were 12, hating the French etc wasn't funny then and hasn't aged well.

Ah it's the time honoured not enough new songs thread...count yourselves lucky, the Neph fans, which I'm one, haven't had a new song since 2015 or thereabouts.
