  1. Pixies – Live from Brixton Academy, London. June 3rd, 2004
  2. New surprise Mystery Jets covers album. Not heard it yet though..... https://www.nme.com/en_asia/news/music/mystery-jets-release-surprise-covers-album-home-protests-2831903
  3. 25.2 million over 50s plus assorted other high risk, vulnerable and eligible key/essential workers (some overlap in that figure obviously). 26 or 27 million odd? https://www.statista.com/statistics/281174/uk-population-by-age/#:~:text=In 2019%2C there were approximately,after the Second World War.
  4. New Sigur Ros. Going to try this. Sounds a bit intense but this track is pretty good. https://www.nme.com/reviews/sigur-ros-odins-raven-magic-review-2829352
  5. Just defined as professional https://www.classical-music.uk/news/article/performing-artists-exempt-from-quarantine-regulations
  6. Yep. There is a specific mention of Performing Artists in the exemption, along with recently signed footballers etc and some others as well. So although it's a been presented as a rich man's pass, it also opens things up for bands wanting to come here and play and not have to quarantine. Other new categories of traveller excluded from the usual 14-day coronavirus quarantine include professionals in the performing arts, TV production staff, journalists and recently signed elite sportspeople.
  7. Possibly. I've no idea. I was just going on what had been published as a target ie the 1 million. Wasn't me saying that was rubbish.
  8. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-55171563
  9. Ah yes, My mistake. Combining the two looks to be about 3 million per week, coming out at about 16/17 weeks. Not sure why NHS is publicising one million per week unless they are looking to underpromise and overachieve.
  10. I'm not that mathematically able but based on your figure there of 1.25 million per week, and the first phase group numbering approx 25 million needing two doses, it's going to take 40 weeks to get through just the primary phase.
  11. The first phase includes all over 50s plus NHS/Frontline etc etc. It's the nine groups which comprise this phase.
  12. But what the government care about in your point is irrelevant to the vaccination programme which will continue apace.
  13. Why less? The medical advisors have repeatedly said they need to get to around 65 to 70% before they can start to control the spread. Not talking about deaths or hospitalisations, but the spread.
  14. Alas! Bugle, toot, wiffle waffle, cavalry, penalty, patience, ramping, greatest ever........and so on.
