    Re seasonality and this virus... I know the flu virus has a marked downturn in summer months, but can we expect the same here? It is already out there in the Southern Hemisphere and while not as...

    XTC recording Skylarking with Todd would be a good one to watch as a fly on the wall, as sessions went they had everything in terms of emotion, but together they created beauty out of angst!

    Really sad, I loved their stuff, each album has some gems. I only saw them once, it was a festival slot, so not their full set but I enjoyed it hugely. I played their albums a lot with my girls when...

    I wouldn’t click on the link, I refuse to read anything the hate-filled and xenophobic Daily Fail publishes. Until a more reliable news source investigates, take this with the scepticism it deserves.

    I missed this on release, it was only after the tragic event that I came across this album. There’s plenty of classic Prince I find more compelling, this seemed like an experiment for him, albeit...

    It is very real, add in poor Manu Dibango a few days ago to this grim statistic.

    RIP to the man who left a timeless classic pop/rock staple for the ages.

    I gave it a first listen today and enjoyed it immensely. True it doesn’t add anything new to the sound, but there’s plenty of room for Canterbury inflected music and compositions of this quality.

    It definitely took place, but there’s no mention of any recordings.

    I had the trifecta too. Back then if a kid in the street had chicken pox, parents would hold a play party and ensure they all caught it. I had a very mild dose, but it was enough for immunity. 20...

    A perennial favourite. The title track is worth the price of admission alone, and although some of the bluesier numbers seem a little dated to me today, I still enjoy a full run through this album on...

    That’s very sad to hear, I never realised Chain had health issues, as he was always an upbeat and informative member when contributing. Rest in peace George.
