  1. John Martyn telling Danny Thompson to “put that f*cking silly violin down” on “Live at Leeds” after an observation on Ravel’s Bolero being designed solely for accompanying the sex act.
  2. Mrs skb558 liked the odd Spin Doctors tune. “Abracadabra, I wanna reach out and grab ya, Steve Miller Band ooh Spin Doctors, very similar” Ron Manager, Fast Show
  3. Anyone going to Birmingham tonight? Look forward to a review. Any other William Nomates going to Leeds next Tuesday and fancy a beer beforehand?
  4. Thought I’d better listen to this ahead of Leeds show week after next having never bothered before. First and last time. 🙄
  5. Forgot about this… John Martyn - Live at Leeds
  6. The only track I like on Frampton Comes Alive is ‘Do You Feel Like We Do’ ; takes me straight back to the hot summer of ‘76, eighteen and not a care in the world.
  7. Genesis - Seconds Out Jeff Beck & Jan Hammer Group - Live Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Weld
  8. Never seen these as anything other than fugly
  9. Great post. First gig was Wishbone Ash in December ‘72 as a snotty-nosed 14-year old. Won tickets and a copy of Argus in an NME competition. Saw the band loads of times in the 70s and very early 80s. Saw the AP variant a few times since, most recently on their 50th Anniversary tour. Awful, left after the first half of their set. Have only seen MT’s band 3 times and will be seeing them again in December. No bloated noodling and as close to the original band as my fading memory allows me to recall. Met Martin after a gig in Pocklington a couple of years ago and asked him about his Thunderbird; Epiphone with replacement pickups. Coupled with his Ashdown rig he gets a great tone. Lovely chap. He was one of the reasons I picked up a bass in the first place.
  10. For those that don’t already know, the PBS Documentary is on Sky Arts tomorrow evening.

  13. Flicked through the doc on my phone and must admit there are some goose pimple bits. My first gig was Stafford in ‘76 the last was Birmingham in ‘83 but I’m getting closer to buying a ticket for Leeds as the days go by, just for ‘closure’ .
  14. According to another article referenced in the above, he recreated the photograph 5 years ago and allegedly suggested to the photographer that he, Elden, should be naked. "I said to the photographer, 'Let's do it naked.' But he thought that would be weird, so I wore my swim shorts," Spencer told the New York Post. Money-grabbing twot
