Re: Scottish Referendum

I was very interested in the Scottish vote for Independence; and at the time, I was flat on my back and had been for some time already; so, I READ A LOT! I tried to consider all the relevant reasons pro and con; exactly why I was convinced at that time the YES VOTE was so very unlikely is no longer...

Strange Friend - The Phantom Band

New Phantom Band album is great. Melodic, uplifting, beautifully crafted tunes. They played almost the whole album in Glasgow the other night. Not a weak track on the album IMO. There's a load of amazing influences distilled into something quite brilliant. Doom patrol is an absolute classic.

THE RETURNED

It's excellent in a kind of 'fuck with your head way'. Nicely acted and shot against a stunning backdrop, with a perfect soundtrack by Mogwai.

Ever so slightly slowly paced but I can forgive that.
