For my money they're the best studio in our region Matt. I'd steer clear of Voltage as I've always thought their recordings sound really dated right from the off.
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

The hilarious news that, after the Gruaniad's pitiful hand-wringing and hissy fit over Boris Johnson's letterbox gag on behalf of the professionally offended, it published a 'dog whistle Islamophobia' piece itself in 2013 - with exactly the same gag.

Today's little pleasure is on the same theme as yesterday's. The awful revelation that Polly Toynbee sees the lovely burka as a "garment of lurid sexual suggestiveness" and an "instrument of persecution" that transforms its wearer into "an object of defilement too untouchably disgusting to be seen".



If I had a few in my wardrobe I think I'd prefer to be compared to a letterbox, thanks!

Where was the outcry against this horrifying tirade of dog-whistle racism?

Yes; sack her, shame her, silence her, report her for a "hate crime", put her though "diversity training" etc.

It's the "progressive" way - when it suits, of course.

Used getmein a few times to sell (face value) tickets....much prefer tickets though as you get your dough immediately, albeit PayPal get their grubby paws on some of it in fees...

Really looking forward to presenting Hounds Of Love and Bat Out Of Hell at 'Classic Vinyl@The Plough' this evening. Hopefully it will be a good turnout for some good music, a few drinks and with the added bonus of the chance to win a voucher donated by our local independent record store, Rapture of Witney. I will also be conducting a poll to help decide on the albums to feature in the forthcoming months. Candidates are:

LA Woman
Let It Bleed
Innervisions
Vol.4
Solid Air
Machine Head
Dare
Moving Pictures
Never Mind The Bollocks

Fond memories of picking up my GCSE results in 1988 and achieving 3 passes (B and 2 C's).  My Mum didn't speak to me for a MONTH!

Congrats to your Daughter, Patrick.
