  1. 2 new albums for me again and at first glance very different choices, great stuff
  2. Had 1st dose of AstraZeneca this morning, who wants to touch me?
  3. The Maccabees Did it sound as I expected? Better than I remember but not my thing Overall thoughts? Tracks sounded quite samey, some catchy hooks but found it kind of boring. I wouldn't say I hated it which I expected to from hearing some of their material before Favourite Track? Pelican Would I listen to it again? No Will I investigate them further? No Score out of 5? 2/5
  4. I'm drunk at 1350 on a Wednesday as it's my last week of unemployment before starting my new job, considering fixing up an old fashioned
  5. The Cure - 135 Radiohead - 160 (-10) The Rolling Stones - 180 Stevie Wonder - 205 Blur - 175 R.E.M. - 190 David Bowie - 285 Pulp - 11
  6. Arcane Roots - Melancholia Hymns This is right up my street, not what I was expecting from the limited exposure I've had to this band before. I clicked with this straight away and I imagine I'll spin this again many many times. My highlight would be Matter but I love the flow of the whole record, thanks EssexIndie for the recommendation 4/5
  7. Hope it doesn't end too soon as I bought some new t shirts and it's clear I need to trim some fat
  8. Nice, my favourite glasto meal is a warm can of lager and a Nutri Grain bar
  9. Gutted about Code Orange and Billy Talent. Should still be a blast though

    First gig back

    See you there! Really hoping it gets the green light as I'm really looking forward to that one

    First gig back

    Gorillaz 11th august. If gigs are actually happening before then I'll 100% pick up tickets for something else
  12. Have enjoyed what I've heard from Arkane Roots on random playlists in the car before but never dived into an album so looking forward to that I have never liked the Maccabees at all from all the singles I've heard so not expecting much there
  13. Slowdive Quite liked this one, never really come across them before which is odd considering how long they've been around (excluding hiatus). Will give this a few listens as it feels like it may grow on me even more but for now I'd give it a 3/5. Good choice
  14. Been vibing with Steely Dan recently. Never done a deep dive on them before and not sure why
  15. The Cure - 90 Radiohead - 180 (-10) The Rolling Stones - 185 Stevie Wonder - 198 Blur - 195 R.E.M. - 240 David Bowie - 290 Pulp - 120
  16. The travelling band Was it horrific? - No Did it sound as I expected? - Based on the description in OP, yes Overall thoughts - Some good parts but bits of the album lost my attention Would I watch them at a festival? - Probably not Would I listen to it again? - I really liked Leftover Lines so yeah I'd probably spin that again Will I investigate them further? - No Score out of 5 - 2. It's not really my kind of thing but there were a couple of good tracks. Would happily have it on in the background
  17. Got my vaccine booked in for next Saturday which is probably the most exciting event of the year so far for me
  18. I hadn't even thought about star wars as I'm not a massive fan of it anyway. I just call them evil for their history of subliminal messages, some older films being pretty racist, the fact they just buy any competition, they messed around pixar a lot and that they'll sue anyone who utters the words mickey mouse. Also Walt disney was dodgy character and disney still don't really acknowledge that
  19. Enjoyed that finale. Wanda is clearly going to be unbelievably powerful when we next see her which should be interesting Also huge fan of Monica and looking forward to seeing what she can do (she's also smokin') Not long to wait for Falcon and the Winter soldier. As much as I don't like to praise evil corporations like Disney I am loving this output and Disney Plus is growing to be a really impressive platform. Netflix for me hasn't put anything decent out for a while and their film selection is really quite poor
  20. Unfortunately my MCR gig falls into the same date and it seems very unlikely, bit surprised they haven't confirmed anything yet so they could just be pushing it back to like August? Realistically I'd say it's another year waiting
  21. The Killers - 85 +10 The Cure - 126 Radiohead - 150 Arcade Fire - 48 The Rolling Stones - 165 Beyoncé - 117 Stevie Wonder - 180 Blur - 231 R.E.M. - 210 David Bowie - 264 Pulp - 100
  22. The Killers – 151 The Cure - 130 Radiohead - 170 Arcade Fire - 110 The Rolling Stones - 165 Beyoncé -115 (-10) Stevie Wonder - 186 Blur - 211 R.E.M. - 190 David Bowie - 255 Pulp - 117
  23. https://www.banquetrecords.com/architects/pryzm%2C-8%3A00pm-(14%2B)/Archi070821 A one off architects show at Pryzm in Kingston, on sale at 6. Will sell out instantly but I'll give it a go
  24. Another 2 albums I've never listened to, looking forward to getting stuck in once I can stop playing architects latest on loop
  25. Paul McCartney - 6 (-10) The Killers – 150 The Cure – 165 Radiohead - 150 Arcade Fire - 132 The Rolling Stones - 166 Beyoncé - 165 Stevie Wonder - 176 Neil Young - 83 Blur - 198 R.E.M. - 176 David Bowie - 260 Pulp - 105
