Re: Record Care

Here is one for the books. I walked into a local charity shop today. After looking ay the vinyl I walked over to the audio equipment. Sitting there was a VPI record cleaning machine. It was marked $9.99 because as the price tag said "Needs new arm". They thought it was a turntable. I brought it hom...

I agree that Baby I'm Just a Fool is a superb song, I wouldn't be complaining if it was in the setlist

is it me though or is the marima part pointless and adds nothing to the song?
Disgraceful stuff! You'll be arguing to bring back the flute next. Down with this sort of thing!

Maybe people remember the Roundhouse show in 2009 where the PA was so loud it rendered the music unlistenably painful :(
I was at that gig with Runcie, Modlab and others. My addled memory of the evening suggest that it was loud, but perfectly listenable :D .

Re: New Spiritualized Album - 2018

Listened to 6Music this morning and thought the song sounded a bit weak, thin and weedy. Later today I played the soundtrack to the video from the new webpage via usb through my stereo and, unsurprisingly, have a different reaction to it. I really quite like it . There is a power to the music I had ...

Re: Moon Duo/Wooden Shjips

Side note Olan. Did you enjoy side 2? It is OK. This is a decent Wooden Shjips record. My issue with it is really that it is a bit Ripley-by-numbers. I don't think they've come near to producing tunes of the quality of 'Aquarian Time' or 'We ask you to ride' on any of the last two or three records....

Re: Moon Duo/Wooden Shjips

Olan. The bummer is side 2 is where it's at. I posted something on their FB page. Maybe that will get their attention. OK Alan, I listened to Side 2 just now. There are no issues with my pressing, which is the European white vinyl limited edition. FWIW, I have more or less given up on TJ who are ab...

Re: Moon Duo/Wooden Shjips

Anyone else get a bum copy of the Wooden Shjips V blue vinyl LP. My side 2 is unplayable. In fact there are three rather explosive pops that sound like they are going to tear my cartridge apart. I have contacted Thrill Jockey and they apparently cant be bothered to respond which I find infuriating....

Re: New Spiritualized Album - 2018

Really looking forward to this. I've avoided listening to any of the bootleg recordings of the new tunes so this will be something almost completely new for me.

I'm a little loopy this morning but it sounds like he is burping the lyrics.
There is a touch of Yoda/Fozzie Bear going on too. The music is OK, the vox are pure comedy gold.
