    Bananagun - The True Story of Bananagun I couldn't really get into this one if I'm honest. I kept expecting the Austin Powers theme to join in at some stage. Now that is just me being facetious but I just didn't find it memorable and even after the 3rd listen it hadn't really gripped me. It was all a bit too 'busy' for my liking at times and just never once let up for a breather. It also sounds like it just plucked the best bits of 60s psychedelic pop and put it together here without offering anything new. Take nothing away from the effort though. It is a really ambitious record and the percussion and guitars here are really very good at times. 'Out of Reach' is excellent. Love the sax making an appearance and the guitar has been very well recorded here. 'People Talk Too Much' sounds like it came straight from Fela Kuti himself. Funky Afrobeat rhythms that are difficult to dislike. I wouldn't be rushing back to listen to it but I appreciate what they've done is technically very good. So for that I give a 6.5/10

    British Band Tournament Round 2. Cream vs Queen

    Queen for their total output.
  4. The Verve for me. Their first 2 albums are brilliant.

    They already did at the last election.

    The Ultimate Beer Thread (No Carling allowed)

    I didn't like it at first but then loved it. Strangely enough I don't seem to get too much of a hangover from it compared to other beers.

    The Ultimate Beer Thread (No Carling allowed)

    I've gone mad for drinking Desperados again lately. Tequila flavoured beer wouldn't be everyone's idea of a good sup but I really like it. A bag of peanuts to munch on is nice with it.

    Before my hair departed I resembled Chris Martin from Coldplay. Now I just look like a baggy eyed scrotum because I haven't slept in 7 years since the kids were born.

    Rita Ora

    I'd ride it. But I'd be ashamed of myself for doing so.
  10. I'm a fan of good guitar players, so Dire Straits it is.

    Madison Cunningham Really enjoyed this short performance. It can be sometimes difficult to capture some artists like Madison in such a small space. Such a delicate and wonderful voice like that could easily get overpowered by other instruments but no sign of it happening here. Lovely tone from the Guitar - I think its a Fender Jaguar, (could be a Jazzmaster I'm blind as fuck these days) and she can really play it. Bass player really solid but looks like he sells shit overpriced coffee for a living. The songs are pleasant to listen to so I'll go check out some of her other stuff. She reminds me of Margaret Glaspy and that's no bad thing. 7.5/10 for me. Nice pick, Howie.
  12. This is like comparing a tin of SPAM to a fillet steak. Fucking hell.

    Tory MP arrested for raping two men

    I wish I could be as ignorant as you sometimes. I might well win more battles with the missus. Well played.

    I haven't had yet time to give a full listen to Howie's choice for many reasons. What I've heard I've really enjoyed. I'll do a review when I can but I echo @Carvalho Diablo review about the quality of the recording and the tone of that bass. Lovely. It all sounds so natural and minimal xx

    Nike deal

    Nike can go fuck themselves.
  16. Genesis by a country mile for me, Clive
  17. Blur are obviously more versatile but I've seen OCS live a fair few times and they're really good. So I'll give them a nod based on live performances.
  18. I'm not arguing that someone can't have an opinion on a bands music. I'm arguing that you can't have an opinion on a band you've never fully listened to which is totally different. Imagine judging Supergrass based solely upon that "We are Young" shite. You'd be missing out on some brilliant music. I've never listened to a Linkin Park album for example, so I'd never offer an opinion on them being "depressing" or "boring" or whatever. Because I'd just be a tit.
  19. Anyone who says Radiohead are "depressing" hasn't ever fully listened to them so their opinion is about as useful as Viagra at a Eunuch Convention.

    Things I have been completely wrong about

    I thought Cul De Sac was Curry Sack up until I was about 16. I'm fuckin shite.
