For devotees/future devotees who may not have seen it there is a long overdue campaign to get Tim Smith some proper care (and a shot at rehabilitation) here:
Help raise £100000 to fund Tim Smith's healthcare costs for one year
Nearly 80% in just a few days

The ferry has sailed with our cash and all quiet with the festival ticket refund front too but hey, I almost nearly got to participate in a pub quiz with Gibby Haynes - what have YOU done with your life!?
Ok as someone who has never heard Nevermind (apart from the hits, obvs) or delved any deeper than that into Americana (is that the genre?) - on first glance this would be way outside the comfort zone but fup me if the first track didn't grab me by the bollards!

I remember being in London in Tower I think when this was just released - it was a BIG little album, if you get me. Here's my first (2nd) impressions, based on memory:

2 - Crying - 4:51 - memories of this...
Fair play Dudley! For what it's worth, I don't care if you finish, or even participate in the racing contest - you've done a good thing.
Hard to put into words but hope this makes things slightly easier for you and family Gary.

Can we have an XTC album next? Don't think they were on my list but maybe for the 2017 generation
There was a cool oft-rotated MTV sting/insert/thingy circa '92 that had Something's Got To Give on it, if anyone remembers that? Or TV, or M*TV? Probably had visuals of youths skateboarding on their skateboards and that. Haven't listened to this album in a long time btw, will maybe give it...
This one (Clear Spot) is the default Mojo-friendly capt. Bf choice according to marky Smith as he says at some point in this video linked below. He's up for Strictly Personal himself.
I picked Shiny Beast which is the "Vic Reeves" choice but might change that to Doc at the Radar Station...
