    Christ. Where to start?! Thats a really tough question (for me). There’s SO many. What kinda thing interests you most? - a particular era: their youth, Hamburg, Sgt Pepper, etc - the actual recording processes? - straight up biogs? - stuff written at the time, to get that in the moment sense? There will be people here who can probably do you a decent list.

    I don’t hate animals or anything. But I only like them when they’re on telly. And David Attenborough is teaching me about them. When he dies the animal kingdom is dead to me too. So yeah. That dog animal looks untrustworthy. Shifty. Like all of them. The gravy is / will be fucking incredible. Why spend all that time and effort cooking Christmas dinner only to pour fucking Bisto on it? Ludicrous concept. The gravy is the getting down on your hands and knees and nodding the ball over the line whilst winking at the opposition’s goalie after dribbling round the whole team.

    We could also probably add Royston Ellis (Benzedrine from inhalers - very Kerouacian / Beat] and pretty much most of the staff in the Kaiserkeller, Indra, Jacaranda(?) (Preludin (sp?). Even Tony Sheridan, perhaps.

    This is very, very right indeed. (Plus even that is a fucking great story: ”Tried weed for the first time yesterday” ”Really? Where did you get it?” ”Off Bob Dylan”)

    I can’t do maths. Even when it’s got letters in it it makes no sense to me. So I defer to your expertise. Include Yoko. And fudge the whole fucking thing and keep Clapton out of it.

    Don’t fuckin’ italic @ me. Never know with you. You change the rules depending on circumstance 😀

    We’ve literally spent hours making Xmas gravy today. If that imaginary dream dog had been at our house today he’d have to eat one of the children to survive. (I know which one he’d choose, I reckon...) Australian band or solo artist?

    I mean, yeah, we could go on and on. When I say we, I mean you. Do the math, Stu. Inc. Astrid, Klaus, Mimi...

    This is potentially tremendous news RE: Hot Chip. I’d swayed back to Macca, but was still conflicted to the point that I was gonna claim in this one I’d watch HC on the Saturday and say Macca’s in the Macca’s thread.

    This is wonderful Stu. Excellent work. This is why I always carry a book at all times. I always feel you look less of a loner reading a book in a pub - almost as if it conveys a conscious decision to be having a few beers alone - than if you’re just looking at your phone. The Philip Norman book very clearly shows him as incredibly ambitious and determined, controlling even - compared to John who was arguably quite lazy when not compelled to be doing something - and on occasion quite ruthless at times (Epstein ‘clearing up’ more than one paternity claim in Hamburg for example). I doubt you get to be that successful without being a little bit like that. But it doesn’t mean you can’t also be genuinely nice too. He probably took more interest in a young Julian than John did. And adopted one of Linda’s kids IIRC. This is what also personally fascinates me about the Beatles. They’re ‘just a band’ but we can ‘study’ them - and disagree about them - to the same historical, intellectual degree you would, say, a famous dictator or a country or a significant battle in antiquity. The story is as incredible as the music.

    I remember a questionable Jamaican accent at one point...but smarm? Hmn.

    The universe certainly seems to be inferring as much. In other news: I’m still intrigued and want to hear more about @stuartbert two hats ‘complicated’ theory / forumula thing that demonstrates Macca’s ‘one third’ contribution to the Beatles. Lets have it, Hat Man.

    I’ve done a volte-face. This post was the trigger / catalyst / final straw. Last night mini-est Woffling (3 on NYE), Mrs Woffy and I were dancing round the house to the Beatles. Little un loved it. Done deal now. Edit: Mini Woffy is coming with us to the farm next June.

    I had a dream last night that you were at Macca’s G2019 set and were having an absolute blast. Every time @Wooderson - who was nearby - commented that the set list wasn’t quite as strong as 2004 you rebuked him and said that it was better than any setlist the HChippers could offer.

    I was gonna join in here, but after recalling a few Underworld singles it's just too easy. Moaner, Dark&Long, Dirty Epic...

    Oh shit. I know what’s going to happen. I’m going to get inadvertently twatted too early and end up missing them both, aren’t I? Bollocks.
