Re: Michael Head And The Red Elastic Band,

Totally adore Shack and pretty much Michael Head has done. American Kid sounds like a decent effort. Going to listen a little more soon. Thanks for the post!

LP Price Guide

Evening folks,

Would someone be so kind as to advise how much I should be paying (to avoid being ripped off) for each Spiritualized LP, from 'Lazer Guided Melodies' to 'Songs in A&E'?

Cheers,

I wish Richard really had used Urban Hymns as his solo LP because calling it an album by The Verve simply emphasizes Richard's...

Sorry to those who thought I was condoning Ian's behaviour, I DONT, and made the comment to have a comic effect to empahise the guy's coolness. Hope I caused no offence to any reader that may have been victims/witnesses to domestic violence.
