Re: So these Verve reissues

thought many here would appreciate this- a rehearsal version of Judas from 2008. I think it sounds tremendous- the Verve magic really was still there at times. shame they didn't play more of Forth live (largely because of who know who)

Re: Stereolab - where to start?

saw them on Sunday night in Birmingham. no equipment problems, not shambolic, a pretty tight set all told. I'd put the show in the "good but not amazing" category personally. they mainly emphasised the droney rocky part of their sound which was positive, the more kitsch poppy ones just in there as a...

Re: Stereolab - where to start?

Thanks for the report Ian. Looking forward to seeing them as it will be my first time.

Re: The Dylan Thread

so the Rolling Thunder documentary drops tomorrow, anyone else rather excited? initially I was sceptical of the accompanying CD boxset, thinking it might overkill. but I am more tempted now as the price is pretty reasonable (much better than previous Dylan boxes on a sheer £ per CD basis) and I real...

Re: Dr John

won't pretend to be an expert on Dr John's career but I love Gris Gris- what a superbly unique stew that album is, it's a classic. although I can't recall, there's a good chance I first became aware of his work via the Spiritualized connection. there's some great pics online of Jason with Dr John (p...
