  1. Bearded Theory 2018

    Happy with Blossoms. I'm originally from Denton which is the next town along from Stockport where Blossoms come from so nice to see a local band doing well.
  2. Where do you buy your vinyl?

    Online - Discogs/Juno Records/Norman Records/Ebay and directly from the band stores. In person - I shufty off to the nearest independent while my wife is shopping but my most used store is probably Swordfish Records in Birmingham.
  3. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Going to Download. Got my wife tickets for Christmas as she's an Avenged fan. Looking forward to it, nice change.
  4. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    $40, like I said I would happily pay that for the album itself. Its the $15 shipping portion of it I have unreasonable objections to. Also the fact that it will probably be sometime in late May before it arrives.
  5. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Ordered gumboot from ATO in the end. Silly really I object to paying the $15 shipping but would happily have paid $15 more for the album..
  6. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Mine arrived a few days ago. Anyone know where I can pickup Gumboot Soup other than preorder through ATO. Not due in until April, which I don't mind, but the shipping price is a bit steep. Been ultra busy since Christmas.
  7. Bearded Theory 2018

    Total surprise. Super announcement for me and my crew.
  8. Album of the Year 2017

    Not if they reformed with a different frontman and entitled the next album - Don't fuck kids.
  9. Album of the Year 2017

    I agree you should if that is how you feel. I took exception to someone telling other people what to do with their list.
  10. Album of the Year 2017

    I haven't said that anyone should get away with anything. If someone commits a crime there is a whole justice system set up to deal with it. There is more than 1 member of Brand New just as Lost Prophets. How is it just to punish an entire band of musicians (+ associates) because 1 of them has committed a crime ? Shall we have a big fire and burn the records we don't like ? Maybe we should have a few public hangings just in case. I like music simply because I like the music, I couldn't give a toss who it's made by. I still think Rock n Roll Christmas is a great Christmas tune even though GG is a nonce. The justice system caught up to him eventually and he got what he deserved. Doesn't make the record shit. What if we found out van Gough was a nonce, should we bin The Starry Night ?
  11. Album of the Year 2017

    To change track - The list of albums I have enjoyed this year in alphabetical order ; All Them Witches - Sleeping through the war Arcade Fire - Everything Now Brand New - Science Fiction Fever Ray - Plunge Idles - Brutalism King Giz - Sketches of Brunsick East LCD Soundsystem - American Dream The Magnetic Fields - 50 song memoir The Moonlandingz - Interplanetary class classics The National - Sleep well beast Oh Sees - Orc Protomartyr - Relatives in Descent Roger Waters - Is this the life we really want Sleaford Mods - English Tapas Trampolene - Swansea to Hornsey Ulver - The assassination of Julius Caesar Will attempt to get it down to 10 with an order by the end of the year, plus I still have albums I've not gotten round to. Been playing old vinyl too much this year.
  12. Album of the Year 2017

    In the same way that everyone knew David Bowie was a paedophile yet he topped a lot of peoples eoy album lists with Blackstar just last year.
  13. Album of the Year 2017

    Well you shouldn't really be using Lostprophets as an example. It was Ian Watkins. As far as I am aware the rest of the band did nothing wrong and were just as outraged as everyone else. So for this album list should we all research the background of every band/artist listed and strike out the ones we don't like and state they aren't allowed ? Be a short list.
  14. Album of the Year 2017

    I'm not sticking up for him, I'm saying it is irrelevant for the purposes of the list. Last I checked Jesse Lacey wasn't running for office, he was singing songs.
  15. Album of the Year 2017

    What the fuck has being a dickhead ever had to do with making great music ? A list of the best albums of the year is a list of the best albums of the year, no qualifiers. Are we not allowed to recognize great records because the people making them are women beaters ? (The Beatles/James Brown/Miles Davis/Sex Pistols/Black Sabbath/Dr Dre/R Kelly etc) or Paedophiles ? (Led Zep/Elvis/Michael Jackson/Chuck Berry/Aerosmith/David Bowie/Rolling Stones etc) Where do we stop ? What about Tory supporters ? This is a list of the albums we enjoyed most through the year. Who the fuck are you to tell people they are only allowed to enjoy things that fit into your moral myopia..
