  • Ruining football, making LFC and Arsenal lose... 
  • Kilgoretrout74 said: ppadilha said: This one is pretty face-melty too: both come from this film made about them around the time they recorded Novos Baianos F.C. at the end they play a version of Alunte that goes pretty fucking hard …
  • Crowdfunding Raj moving this to reddit is better than the deep web a55ass1N I was posting originally.   
  • ppadilha said: Brazil has the crazy name game on lock though. My brother once met a woman there named Xisalêire - pronounced like "She's a Lady". Her parents were big Tom Jones fans.       
  • klezmer electro-thug beats said:Kyoto had only a few shops but I had a good time at Jet Set. I once bought a car from Japan because it had a Jet Set Records Tokyo sticker in the window.
  • He also says "Disk Union, Jazzy Sport, Face Records, there are still a few others but I can’t always remember their names!  Also HMV Shibuya has an unreal 2nd hand section and a friend who works for HMV tells me that Tower Records have just bought 5…
  • ketan said: Ooh, have a great trip -  no digging advice, but try to reach Kyoto and Nara.  They are really special! Also, install the Google Translate app on your phone so you can use camera mode - there's not a lot of, um, support for Engli…
  • Hi Thes, good to see you here.  Humanity matters.  Humanity and Music. Donated. IF anyone wants a rare matching THES YO! YO! YO! Christmas Jumper (L), I can flip mine for this charity.
  • AI will never compete with this.
  • Everyone had it on cassette back in the day since it was first exposed.
  • "Rock Hard in a Funky Place" is the best track.  Worth it for "Soaked in banana cologne, no wonder you're all alone." But yeah, not 20k worth it.
  • Spotted in this chippy I'm stood in now. Yes the chippy sells booze. This is the kind of classy establishment I am known to frequent. Could be original 90s N.O.S.?   "It's aged to perfection!" - Things R.Kelly Never Said, Ever.
  • Electrode said: ketan said: i've always imagined that it tastes like burnt gasoline.  ?? It has flavor, but to give you an idea, buy a habanero at your local grocery store (it has the same ~100K Scoville level) and nibble it. It "cre…
  • Danno3000 said:Sweet! Throw on some drop bars and and you have yourself a gravel bike! I don't get on with drops for any length of ride, my back tells me so.  Also, the state of our Nottinghamshire roads is probably akin to [insert warzone he…

  • ketan said: Nice one - I liked that album when it came out and didn't realize a whole remix project dropped. Gonna keep an eye out for Machinedrum mixes now.   Which reminds me... Been chatting on Insta about what constitutes Jungle and …
  • It's not a bad selection at all.  If you are in the mood for pacy electronica.
  • Hey Frank!  I disagree.  Humanity is important and this was/is one of the few online places you can glimpse the best of it and/or escape, momentarily, the worst of it. It's possibly an age-R thing where the younguns are in their family phase and do…

  • David Soul! I am old enough to remember "Starsky and Hutch", and the iconic Ford Torino. He had some chart hits over here off the back of the show, and he was also a good foil to James Mason in "Salem's Lot" which is imho still undefeated for Most…
  • I remember Zappa and Phil Collins were in the show too... I thought "I wonder if you could have made a band?"  Turns out very probably - The musicians who appeared on Miami Vice:Glenn FreyGene SimmonsLeonard CohenPhil CollinsTed NugentLittle Richa…
  • Dukodelic!!! Just about warm enough to get out weekend mornings. I did, in olden times, commute in coldest months but got fed up getting throat and sinus infections.  Just not worth it.   I do get to ride out to the old monastery ruins as they do …

  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.  I could see this coming and fully understand the move.  Life, and social media ploughs on and on. I'll miss it because it was one of the few places we could talk shit globally and generally agree.  Made a lot of friends…
  • Maybe the lack of internet allowed such parallel universes to exist?  For example with Claus, the classical reviewer was struggling to find anything on him in classical books, whereas if he'd copped a jazz book, there was at least something known ab…
  • mini said: R.I.P. Amp Fiddler Met him maybe 2 or 3 times, says on Wiki he was 65?  I don't know if that's correct but whatever he was on, he looked younger than me and certainly not 65.
  • My introduction to Brasilian culture was in the late 80s when I was at Uni in Manchester.  On my course was a woman from Brasil, first time meeting anyone from there for me.  Her dad was/had been the mayor of Salvador in Bahia.  She was five or six …

  • A great album and this is the deepest tune, a tour of the Amazon no?  With Ron Carter bonus. Jobim was always fond of journeys and checking the sights and sounds.  Otherwise it seems random AF.   Brazilian culture accepts lyrics from a way broader …
  • There's goals in them there Villains, sure.  I was surprised they did Arsenal who I thought were playing with swagger at this point. What about Everton?  Since the points deduction, they are playing like Spartans.  I for one await the relegation to…
  • City dire without the one RODRI.  But I watched the first half and everyone was out of position and playing with no confidence.  Villa deffo wanted it more, simple as. I think Arsenal are going to do it this year, again, as long as they can stay fi…
