Re: Liverpool Psych Fest

Well that is one less thing to worry about :D. We'll be having a busy year this year so the chances of being able to do the usual LPF thing were looking very remote to say the least. Things should be sorted for 2019 though 8) .

Re: Favourite release of 2017

https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a3614354110_10.jpg This was one of my favourite releases of the last few years. Sadly, Dom only puts out 300 copies of each Polytechnic Youth LP so it is very hard to find these days. The LP has been reissued in the last week so those of you in the UK who need a copy shoul...

Re: Cavern of Anti-Matter - 2018 Album

Any LP that opens up with a 16:35 tune is likely to be OK in my book. The fact that it is a CoAM LP is simply and added bonus.

Re: This message board. Time for a change.

It always goes quiet between releases. It is 6 years since SHSL and 10 years since A+E. It is difficult to maintain the momentum when the new material is so sparse. Things will pick up when the new LP/Tour are announced. It'll be good to catch up with people at Spiritualized gigs again. It seems I o...

Re: Record Store Day - Highs Lows and Heavenly Blows reissue

Is this getting a UK RSD release? It is madness that the Spectrum back catalogue is pretty much unavailable now, particularly on LP. I can't see how Sonic would to sell 3-500 copies of each LP per year in the UK, and more if he got sorted and toured properly. I guess you could say the same for Spiri...

Re: High capacity mp3 players

Mark, I used JRiver as a media serving/ripping package waaay back (maybe in 2007/2008). This was brought about for two reasons (i) iTunes didn't handle FLAC then and I had loads of software already and (ii) I had 2500 CDs to rip. In the end it was such an awful product that I gave up on pushing file...
