  1. The Vinyl Thread

    Some decent deals here if you've got gaps to fill that include Elvis Costello, Elliot Smith, Sonic Youth and some other half decent odds and sods. John Martyn's One World for 8.99 is a steal https://thesoundofvinyl.com/*/Black-Friday-Sale/
  2. Acts you don't "get"

    Absolutely love the Streets. That first album summed up my 20s so well. Genius album. And although the overall quality was patchy later, every album had one or two great songs. I got nothing but time and respect for Mike Skinner.
  3. The Vinyl Thread

    Nick Cave types; that triple album best of from the other month is now just under 20 quid on Amazon. it's a steal at that price, I reckon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06XFR4ZFF/ref=ox_sc_mini_detail?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

    Give the latest Tyler, the Creator album a go. Better than Kendrick. It's a fucking masterwork.
  5. Kendrick Lamar

    Fuck, These UK dates clash with Kraftwerk at the Kremlin Palace and theres no way I'm missing that. Been waiting for Kraftwerk to come back here since 2004 tempted to head to Berlin for the final date of the tour

    I didn't really get on with The Epic, bought it off the back of the hype and was, in all honesty, disappointed, but this is lovely stuff.
  7. Bon Iver 2017

    Monday 26th for me, dead happy. Just got to find the money to fly back from Russia now. And a hotel

    Oh Ezra, Ezra, Ezra. 2 of my favourite gigs ever and now this? Don't ever fall in love, kids.
  12. Bon Iver 2017

    I'm so envious of you going to see him. Was astonishing at Primavera this year. Will be trying for tickets on Tuesday morning, but not very hopeful of bagging any.
  13. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    ah man, not going to get a sniff of those Bon Iver tickets, am I? First dibs to those with the cancelled tickets from the roundhouse, then an o2 priority sale on Sunday. Will be meagre pickings left come next Tuesday
  14. 2017 - How was it for you?

    Yeah, definite shift in Mac de Marco's preformance between Primavera in early June and this, 3 months later. Getting bands who've spent the summer doing European festivals is obviously more cost effective but does, I think, fall into the trap you describe. It often seems to be either that, or smaller bands who've just arrived for an autumn tour. Not many one off performances, really.
  15. 2017 - How was it for you?

    Lots of the wilder live acts seemed pretty restrained. End of the festival season and I think some of them were a bit worn down. The Moonlandingz didn't really go for it, that for me, never really left orbit, Mac demarco never really cut free and even FJM (although I didn't see it) was more restrained than he's often been. Got me pondering a bit.
