OK, it's basically Portishead, but it still sounds great




Your playing some fairly eclectic stuff this week Chris.

At this point in time and for the next few years Mayall’s Bluesbreakers were one of the must see bands. Saw them three times, once with the Bare Wires lineup and twice with the Laurel Canyon lineup. Every time they were superb.

More of a dilettante ....... probably play it twice and then it will disappear into the ether

It’s hard getting to know new stuff as well as the old stuff, don’t suppose it will ever happen.

I used to be able to name every track on every album I owned, now as my collection has grown I can only remember the name of the albums. Too many records.

Rumour at the time was that when Yes pinched Moraz, a replacement was cited as Graham Bond :o

Oi'll give it one, said in a Janice Nicholl's 'Black Country' accent - and that's being generous.

A album heavily reliant on singles, take them out and the rest is dross.

The difficult first album. Where they now New Order or still Joy Division? Perhaps they were New Division

Many collaborators, Lynne, Costello, U2, Mike Campbell and T- Bone Burnett helped to make this a fabulous album. And then of course there was the voice.

An excellent album either way

Good call Chris

Yes, good call

I’ve never heard that rumour

I much as I love Bond’s music I can’t see him fitting in (hence the lad didn’t get the job!)

They were probably not keen on appointing an Aleister Crowley disciple

If it had come to fruition, surely yet another massive change of musical direction

Wife off to her hippie flute circle, kids in Dallas. Just the dogs (and some fucking cats) and me.

When I listen to Joy Division (not often enough), I always pick their first album. I've played Closer twice now, and I'm realizing it's at least as good as Unknown Pleasures.

After this: Nick Cave live in Cologne. I bought it a couple of weeks ago. Probably a boot, but excellent sound. Third listen. Excellent "Weeping Song" and "Stagger Lee".

No, I'm not a cat person.

That's an awful lot of CSNY to wade through in one sitting. Mixture of brilliant, fine and average

You are right Chris, two CDs at the most in one sitting which is plenty, which leaves one more and the DVD.

It's not great sound wise but it's a nice record of what they were about at the time and I'm glad I've got it, besides the sun is trying to come out and I always associate them with sunny days.

CSNY '74 is surprisingly good. So much better than 4-way street.
