    This is like someone asking, "hey, how about this, why don't you have sex like the way Bullock does with Sly in 'Demolition Man' instead of having actual sex?" Although less cumbersome, and certainly less repellent than the above suggestion, not without problems. I'm not adverse to...

    2020 albums worth a listen...

    Here's one I stumbled upon by accident. Brings to mind Young Widows [anyone?] with more of a punishing motorik beat. Dank, unforgiving noise rock. Like waking up with your face in an ashtray full of stubbed out Johnnie Blues.

    Check this out! The top ten VCRs to buy in 2020. Some mouthwatering hardware in there, but surely those dual dvd/vhs players are on a fast hiding to breakdown, scrap city?

    The Joinery is a long time gone now? Didn't go to his place. There were no bars open. I did see his son or grandson, I assume, Billy Keane on the street looking very distracted and nervy. Right, that would be class to have a character like that running his own shop. I read that initially as...

    Damn, I was wondering about those old mom and pop electrical stores that might survive on selling kettles and toasters. Right next to Matt the Rashers too which would have been perfect as I'm on the keto diet. I was knocking about Listowel the other week hoping for that very type of store...

    Cool, @shitepipe Liking the sound of that Nashpaints. Will check the others in due time. On an unrelated note, this album from Dublin noiserock group called Shifting just released today. A no-brainer if you like to be smacked in the face to ominous, David Wm. Sims bass, with £5000 Travis...

    I'm looking to stockpile working VHS players. No preferred brands. Just as long as it's working Will offer cash, or possible trade for records/cds/books. Might be a bit of a long shot, being 2020, but you never know what people have knocking about that they don't need or use.

    https://brickroad.bandcamp.com/releases Just got wind of this Songs of Peace & Happiness by Brickroad. Which is the alias of Ethan Bokma. Modal-type, drawn-out Terry Riley vibes tip to my ears. Very pleasing.

    5 go down to the sea / nunattax

    Wow, glad I went into this thread. These guys are class, at least at first few listens. Never heard of 'em before. Kills me what the singer reminds me of, but music brings to mind James Chance, Pop Group, Associates which is of course no bad thing. Interview with yer man Ricky done by Dave...

    People Who Died

    Devastated. Gang of Four were never my Mission of Burma. The impact was more subtle. Me and a mate interviewed him after some poxy show in 2006. So naive. "But Andy you are a Marxist because..."He was hammered but still ran rings around us. In fairness we were probably stoned out of our tiny...

    Looking through it now. Jesus, their write-ups are torturous.

    2019 albums worth a listen.....

    This is out over a month ago, but just listened today - the first Pan American album in four years or more aka Mark Nelson of Labradford. May take a few listens to sink in, but nice to hear Nelson's voice for the first time since? early Labradford, I guess. The track, 'Muriel Spark' is a...

    Speaking of Godspeed, has this been posted yet? Apologies if already posted. Kevin Doria from Growing with Ephrim Menuck from GYBE. Songs steeped in swelling frequencies and symphonic drones...ticks a lot of boxes in a 'sitting in a crappy apartment in Ringsend, 2003 smoking poor quality...

    2019 albums worth a listen.....

    New one from United Waters. Second track here, Arrowheads, has a really moreish sound. Very moreish. Ben Chasny probably overstates the case for them a little with the blurb on there, but definitely some cool guitar stuff happening with this band. Their last album had a handful of blinders, but...
