  1. Went to Berlin at the weekend to see Ryan Adams. Ryan Adams was ace and so was Berlin
  2. My go to podcasts are the following Richard herrings Leicester Square theatre podcast distraction pieces podcast with scroobius pip athletico mince the Adam Buxton podcast hip hop saved my life with romesh ranganathan All well worth a few hours of your time
  3. I went as well, I mean it's bob Dylan one of the greatest songwriters of all time, I also had very low expectations seeng Dylan in 2017 is probably never going to meet your expectations. what you really want to see is a mid 20's Dylan armed with nothing but a guitar and a harmonica trying to change the world. sadly what you get is a 70 something year old Dylan backed by a swing band doing some questionable versions of classic songs. That version of blowing in the wind for the encore was terrible. that said he is still one of the all time greats
  4. The Afghan whigs are sounding better than they have ever done at the minute. Really looking forward to the new album
  5. Arrived at forever records in Nottingham at 5.20 this morning and was still number 7in the queue. First guy arrived at midnight! however early bird catches the worm as I got everything I wanted My RSD swag list Sugar - copper blue 25th anniversary edition Bruce Springsteen - Hammersmith odeon 75 Townes van zandt - austin city limits live The flaming lips - onboard the international space station Goldie - inner city life 2017 / burial rmx Follakzoid feat j spaceman - London sessions Jason Isbell - welcome to 1979 by 8.20 record store day was over and I went home for a sleep
  6. Great win for Lincoln out if the for about 88 of the 90 mins but never gave in and ended up winners.
  7. Being from Lincolnshire I went as well enjoyed the day, great atmosphere and great to see over 9000 people for a non league game. lincoln looked ok didn't seem to panic and then showed great character coming back from a late goalie win 2-1. loved the way Matt Rhead used his ample frame to stop the Torquay keeper form setting up the wall by basically standing right in front of him. Would probably get booked at a higher level but got away with it.
  8. I would imagine being a 4lp set with the RSD premium attached if you get change out of £50 it would be a miracle. if I get Springsteen, Townes van zandt, Jason isbell and sugar copper blue I would be more than happy
  9. Obviously not growing up in Leicester mine are a bit different. The record shop in Grantham, think I kept them in business for a few years! Barry the owner would keep promos etc for me and pre internet I would go in with a list of stuff I wanted, had read in the NME (back when it was relevant) or had heard on john peel the previous week. Back then they would put the show listings on teletext the following week and I would make notes and then check the listings before going in to order them. selectadisc in Nottingham simply the best record shop ever. the music exchange Nottingham, sadly now closed but a great place where the people would remember you, and you felt valued. One of the guys from the music exchange has now set up forever records in Nottingham
  10. True but sometimes going later can be a nightmare with people rummaging through the scraps just or the sake of buying something and then calling it "A Vinyl" i do do want that Springsteen Hammersmith album and a few other things so may well be an early one for me
  11. Was definitely worth it the venue in Nancy was an old boat around 150 people far better than a massive arena! Can be a bit of a pain I agree but I went to a couple of places I would never have thought of going and Nancy in particular blew me away an absolutely stunning place
  12. What about follakzoid ft J Spacemen! Surely that has to go on as well then? That will be pretty ace I reckon
  13. It's all part of the fun I am currently sat on a train after flying out to Lyon Wednesday for a frank turner gig followed by a train to Nancy (4 long hours!) another FT gig and then Nancy-Paris-london-Grantham today. i intend doing Paris Strasbourg and Brussels for Dillinger escape plan in a few months
  14. Obviously keown has forgotten his time at Leicester when rumours suggest he was let go for allegedly trying to undermine the then city boss Micky Adams. i seem to remember stories of a massive bust up after a game at QPR away http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11712/2312246/foxes-let-keown-leave snake
  15. For me it's the act of taking some time out and putting a record on that works as chill out music doesn't matter if it's boards of Canada or Dillinger escape plan
