  • No worries man... I guess the weather in southern Europe probably makes a big difference for me personally. My life is basically based outdoors. Also I've skateboarded since 87 so I never have problems having an in. But in Amsterdam at the spots I g…

  • No advice... (why am I even replying I guess it's the allure of a European capital... the locals are pushed to the side by high rents and institutional investors and you have a large transient population. Nobody is settling in these kips without b…

  • Jimster said: Yes!  There is real, dry, humour in there.  The lady with the log etc.  He can't keep up the darkness incessantly. ..."My log does not judge..." I had a spare week last week to watch the entire Twin Peak series back to back…
  • Jimster said: Junior said: Thread hijack, what say you on the Miles in general? Visionary or talented self marketer with a top ear for collaborators? Good question. Visionary with a top ear for collaborators.  Visionary enough to not …
  • Interesting... when I read the thread title I immediately thought Sabbath... but for me throw in Can, Neil Young, Herbie Hancock, Alice Coltrane, John Martyn, Weather Report, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden... there's probably a ton more. The only artists I…
  • There's still two stores in Dublin, Ireland. Are these the only ones left outside Japan? I know one of the stores in Dublin has a whole floor dedicated to vinyl. Pretty well stocked across the board from what I've seen in there.
  • Stumbled upon this guy's mixes when I went looking for some 92 era hardcore stuff. There's a bunch of early DnB and Hardcore mixes. Well worth checking out. https://soundcloud.com/mickeybeam
  • I'm no boxing fan but I found this article a really interesting read. The description of the fight is quite harrowing. I'd never heard of Emile Griffith before. http://www.theguardian.com/sport/2015/sep/10/boxer-emile-griffith-gay-taunts-book…
  • Not record related at all but I guess the sheer scale of the pillars of creation have always fascinated me. It's where stars are born. edit: this is actually the higher res version they took in 2014 with hubble.
  • For reasons I now cannot fathom the sight of these guys in a cave used to scare the crap out of me as a child.
  • Bummer... the one weekend I'm not in Bristol. Flying back to Dublin to see my sister and her baby. Bristol is small. Pleasant enough to spend an afternoon and evening in... not much in the way of records though.
  • Electrode said:There's a pressing defect on the outer run-in groove of my Bob James 2 which causes the first several seconds of Mardi Gras to skip :holygrail: Mine has the exact same defect... bad run or bad luck?
  • I'm from there but haven't dug seriously in the city for years. In fact I live in Bristol now but this place opened in the last couple of years and would be worth checking out. https://www.facebook.com/recordspot?ref=br_tf But in gener…

  • I'm pretty sure that looping a song for that amount of time in an office environment would lead to what happens in the video below (I work in a school so the op's premise wouldn't really be possible there). Maybe the song in that video? But f…
  • batmon said: Did u learn anything? O'Reilly is mental?
  • Yeah his 'Overdue Account' post is pretty legendary. It's like next level trolling or something.
  • So just to collate things... A - Apache / Amen Brother B - Big Beat / Bustin' Loose C - Champ / Cramp Your Style D - Different Strokes / Dance To The Drummer's Beat E - Escapism / Engine No.9 F - Free Your Mind / Funky Presiden…
  • Just listening to it again... Y also has You'll Like It Too by Funkadelic in there. There's also a really common drum fill between I and J that I know I know or at least used to know. Steve Miller Band?
  • DJBombjack said: J also has Johnny The Fox - and It's not Jam On The Groove, it's Graham Central Station - The Jam Thank you... this has been bugging me all day. The penny has finally dropped.
  • That was fun. J is on the tip of my tongue. A - Apache B - Big Beat / Bustin' Loose C - Champ / Cramp Your Style D - Different Strokes / Dance To The Drummer's Beat E - Escapism F - Free Your Mind G - God Made Me Funky / Goo…
  • From a personal perspective I guess I could narrow it down to... James Brown Miles Davis John Coltrane Robert Johnson

  • I honestly thought it was going to be 'Endless Flight' until that popped up wayyyy back.
  • DocMcCoy said: Yeah, I've noticed this too. Lots of collections of Irish rebel songs in the "folk" sections, albums telling the story of the Paris Commune, all kinds of peculiar-looking records. I really need to start taking a punt on some of thi…
  • I once found a faded photograph of three girls topless sunbathing on a cliff. The whole scene looked like it was straight out of the seventies. For the life of me I can't remember what the record was...
