  1. Cheers. I had a quick listen of Several Shades today, just picked it up. What I perceived as a jump from the Opal Tapes releases to Maxyboy makes a lot more sense now. Will check out the EPs too, not sure why I slept on all this stuff for so long.
  2. Is that worth a listen? Patricia sorta dropped of the radar for me, but I just picked this up. It's perfect heatwave weather music. First run through and I'm liking this more than first tow releases on Opal Tape, and they were fantastic.
  3. Whoop speed straight to your heart
  4. This is great, very excited for the new album.
  5. This is hitting the spot, would like to hear more stuff like this from him.
  6. I was at the St John gig last Friday, first time I've heard him live. Little nervous as I initially didn't like "Butterflies", though having a few listens I've started to change my mind. Great gig overall, all of the support acts were on point too, the Orson Hentschel set was wicked: [youtubehd]guDm0KIjr3w[/youtubehd] It took a short while for Stott to get into gear, seemed like the set was just material from "Too Many Voices". Bass heavy and very noisy. Crowd responded well to him, especially the chap sat next to me off his face on something or other. If the set was representative of the album then I will be happy, I just hope it keeps the grit of the live performance. Mother of mercy, this is worlds away from Butterflies. I am loving both but wondering how they'll contrast on the album. Think he played a live version of this on Friday towards the end of the set.
  7. The chap that sits opposite me has a tendency to burp like Barney Gumble. Every day. All day. Without fail. When he remembers to acknowledge his crime, which is about 50% of the time, he says "pardon". This also bugs me. These are seriously loud burps. No one mentions it, but those that know, talk and support each other.
  8. Any recommendations on where to start with Vakula? Really like those four tracks. Theo Parrish vibe with the first Soul 223 (Stasis) 12", he really needs to release more music.

  9. Ordered this on Monday, thread served as a good reminder. Fantastic album, reminds me a little of Coil's The Remote Viewer in places, especially "Bypass Default Mode Network".
  10. No that's more like hating your mom because she starts to beat you up I think it is more... You grew up in the suburbs, a beautiful small town, halcyon days... You lived with your mother and sister, your mother was a lot older than any of your friends mothers. And your sister? Well, she was always getting in trouble, but she could be a good kid. It wasn't the closest relationship, she was distant when ever you tied to get close, but you bonded over sci fi films. You'd watch them together in the evening when your sister would get back late, your mother never knew she would sneak out after dark, and you never told. A few years later your sister moved out east for school, she never visited much after that, it was just you and mum. She used to make the best apple pies using fruit from the tree out back. A few weeks after your 16 birthday, your mother peacefully passes away. She leaves you a letter and a small sum of money for college... The letter, well, you are shocked to find out that that loving woman, was actually your grandmother... And your sisterrrrrrr, You can not accept this at first, but you come to trust your feelings, as they do you credit. You end up living with your real mother after living with some relatives up north. Your sister finished grad school and now works for a blue chip company, she is a very successful lady, but cynical, too driven. Any warmth you felt is gone. She got married to a guy called Rick Mccallum, she controls him a lot, and you find him too cheerful, too agreeable. The house is fantastic, its big and you get almost everything that you could ever ask for, except that the oven in that big kitchen never once bakes a home made apple pie.
  11. Is it rammed in there? About to head down.
  12. Rick and Morty is great. Period. I've enjoyed both seasons, there is genuine pathos in the show, oh Rick, goodnight, sweet pronce... Anyone watching the BBC show Last Kingdom? Middle Ages, Anglo-Saxons, inevitable comments of how this is the new Game of Thrones.* It does lose its way somewhat after the first few episodes, but it has prompted me subscribe to Audible and download the Last Kingdom books, so even if I am too depressed and/or busy to read, at least I am listening to someone else read for me. I am a better person for having listened to the books. *Game of Thrones, terrible, terrible show (imo). it sucks as a series of books and sucks harder as TV show. ** ** I can never claim back the time I spent with you, oh sordid , sordid fantasy novels of little merit. Why did I think you would offer me something to fill the void.
  13. I'd agree with that breakdown. While the Final Frontier might be pretty lame, It is the dynamic between Spock, Kirk and McCoy that still makes it watchable for me, despite the outrageous storyline. That dynamic is present in all of the films up to Undiscovered Country, lets not talk about Generations though. Abrams delivered a couple of enjoyable films, but they are just space fantasy action flicks. Notwithstanding Nimoy's appearances, and the characters names, the new films lack any trace what makes Star Trek and what made TOS special. Might as well call it Space Force in the 23rd Century. yesss. it's amazing that the TOS managed to nail it imo. replicating what made the TOS work ( the good cast + bond between characters ) but still managed to completely fuck it up with just about every film. The Final Frontier i find funny more just because it's shatners turn to direct a film and i can barely stomach the end product at all. TOS was, and still is some great sci fiction, even if the social commentary was a little hokey at times. The fact that they managed to revisit the characters 10 years later and update them, particularly Spock, while still maintaining the vibe that made the TV series so great is impressive. The relationships between the main characters in the new films are not believable. For me. the death scene from Into Darkness rings hollow, I don't see much chemistry between the characters, they are just aping previous performances (imo) It reminds me of this type of criminal behaviour: [youtubehd]bxU2eqZtYmc[/youtubehd] And Final Frontier is rubbish, but come on, we are in some serious so bad its good territory [youtubehd]dxk1BSQo8bg[/youtubehd]
