What do you think the effect will be genuinely? Not being provocative but I have enjoyed CFF before and  after he seemed to have left.

Id love to hear what you think of it after a few listens, Diane.

A bunch of Motown, inspired by an article in today's Guardian.

Stevie Wonder's I Don't Know Why (I Love You) is an utterly extraordinary piece of music. Perfection.


Amen to that bro

Very excited to have splurged (on my budget) for a ticket to see Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band at the end of the month at Madison Square Garden. Not just due to cost, but I think I am completely over the big arena shows, but this is Bob's farewell tour and I was not going to miss it. I'm a huge fan, but my previous times seeing him have always been marred by one thing or another that prevented full scale enjoyment. So I actually bought myself, and only myself a ticket so I can just go and have no distractions and enjoy the farewell on my own terms.

Not for me, but did we know that Supergrass are back with dates next year (after playing the Pilton Party a few weeks ago)?  A couple of decent ditties aside, I've always thought they were very overrated and the 2008(?) Cropredy performance certainly didn't change my mind about that...


Neither knew nor cared after their appalling Cropredy appearance.


Was it appalling?  I can't really remember.  I thought it was just a bit dull....


They weren't good at Cropredy but there were extenuating circumstances. They were in the process of breaking up. Relations in the band were fractious and they were promoting an album that was far from their best. They were generally however a fantastic live band (which you would not know from their Cropredy show) and their first four albums are all terrific and inventive records. Road To Rouen also has a lot of fans. They got lumped in with the Britpop crowd but at their height they knocked most of their contemporaries into a cocked hat. Sadly I can't get to any of the reunion gigs.

Always had a soft spot for Supergrass...Although I am a bit biased as they were/are a local band Roll Eyes...Late in the Day and Richard 111 are terrific songs...It's a shame they were lumped in with the Britpop thing...They were much better than all that...Would love to see one of the reunion gigs...

The new Guided by Voices album, Sweating the Plague.  It's pretty damned proggy!

Listening to it on a sneaky download from a mate.  Can't buy any new music for a while because of financial restraints.  Just when you thought my life couldn't get any more joyless, eh?

But it's a great album, and I'm learning that hearing the music is more important than collecting the records.  To be honest, my collection has started to resemble an albatross around my neck anyway.

Christ, but I'm a cheery bugger.

The topic of just how much music you can buy and own comes up regularly on another forum I frequent. The rise of streaming comes into this discussion,  as do one's age, money constraints,  space and just how we feel about  having all of this stuff around us. Apart from streaming,  all of these fa actors apply to me. I'm at the stage of finding music I've bought only a couple of years ago but have played maybe once, sometimes not at all.

This could be the subject of a new thread, if anyone is interested.
