Killing Joke are actually playing Wellington in June (just before we leave to go back to the UK)...

I had been grumbling that they were only playing one show in Auckland...but have just announced a Welly gig (in small venue, too - Bodega where I am seeing Jello in a few hours)...sorted!
permalink Yay!
KJ (as long as Big Paul turns up) are VERY good live at the moment
permalink ooh, I see it's the original line up touring
with Mr Youth...splendid!
permalink I did.

Very impressed indeed http://www.ebay.co.uk/...

Beautiful day here on t'wirral...vodka and cranberry and a warm fire pit for when sun goes down

A Coal Chamber gig was the one and only time I was sent crowdsurfing. Unfortunately the crowd fucked off and I ended up dropping 6' onto my shoulder. There may have been swears.

Still, worth it just to be that close to Rayna Foss (bass) :)

permalink now this is an intresting life synopsis
Jeffrey Allen "Jeff Skunk" Baxter (born December 13, 1948) is an American guitarist, known for his stints in the rock bands Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers during the 1970s. More recently, he has been working as a defense consultant and chairs a Congressional Advisory Board on missile defense.

http://en.wikipedia.or...
permalink As the only board member
With a Steely Dan derived username, I'd like to pipe up and say that I agree.
permalink more from "Al's slightly dodgy music recomendations"
Much of the time 6 Mix is poorly used. Many weeks it isn't even a "mix" as such. Often it's a load of pretentious twaddle. Grandmaster Flash, on the other hand, has picked up a theme and run with it. It only stops for trailers. I wish they'd not done that- two hours straight through would have been even better.
And yes, there are some choices on that track list that have never been played on 6music, and likely will never again...


Two hours. Potentially genius.
permalink Ironman 3
with the cubs, good film, slightly introspective but good nevertheless
permalink we rather enjoyed that
though quite why the bad guy died that time and not the other times is a bit odd.

oops, spoiler alert.

But then I am totally gay for RDJ...

and the total lack of AC/DC was most welcome this time round
permalink Star Trek 12 looks good

permalink Interesting
Ta
thread so, the new Daft punk album
is apprently a bit bobbins. That single certainly is, despite a superb groove. Pharell fucks it over. Anyway, all this is a convulted way of getting you to click this
permalink OK, what's going on here?
Yesterday you are all for Emile Sande, today you're criticising the new Daft Punk tune?
I agree that Pharell's lyrics are sub-optimal, but Nile Rodgers did the guitars and all that shizzle! I think it's quite good, and I'm keen to listen to the album.
Also, there's a great mondegreen in it - the lyrics appear to go "she stayed up all night to get bummed"
permalink Also, as a sub-reply,
this is a great example of how the new music licensing model is great.

Let's say the new Daft Punk album is bobbins.
In the old days you'd buy it listen a couple of times and then never again. Daft Punk would make the same amount of money as if it were the best album of the decade.
Nowadays, you set up a playlist on Spotify, and if you listen to it twice, they get paid for that, if you listen several times, or continually, they get more.
It's fundamentally fairer, although I accept that some balancing needs ot occur, I don't think Spotify pays enough per play. If the scale of fees was right, it would be better for consumers and artists at the end of the day.
permalink Yes, but...
...duck.

http://www.thisiscolos...
permalink I saw that,
and rejected it as it was:
a. not rubber
b. silly
c. a waste of time and money
d. not art (according to my own extremely wide and imprecise definition of art)
permalink I concur, but I place value on b) regardless
:)
permalink I concur
purely on a

Art is often silly and a waste of time and money. I like that about it.
permalink Where is Godzilla
when you need him?
permalink the Nile Rodgers guitar
is superb. But the song as a whole is a bit dull. And seems to have avoided having Daft Punk involved at all.

As for Emile Sande, you seem to have mistaken my linking to that as an endorsement.
permalink though again
I like what Ferry has done with the tune, the Sande vocals detract.
permalink You're just not one the 'boarders I usually associated with posting music.
And you've done it twice in less than 24 hours, and I've had issues with the choice on both occasions.
I have to admit I haven't listened to yesterday's on the basis that it's got Emile Sande in it.
It could be brilliant, she's certainly got some talent, but one of my failings is that I am predetermined to hate things that lots of people like, which very much includes Emile Sande.
I was extremeley upset to find out that I actually quite liked Jake Bugg's album, for example.
permalink Predisposed.
Predetermined makes it sound like it's in your genetic code, rather than just being awkward ;)
permalink i dunno who emile sande is
but the new daft punk tune is shocking
permalink imagine the lovechild
of Grace Jones and Max Headroom
permalink +1
:)
permalink worse than that
it isn't shcoking. It's bland.
permalink i was in a caff and looked up to the screen to see who were the bastards fouling the air
quite shocked to see the helmets and the 'DP dance'.. fucking horrendous

(also found out one direction have done a cover of blondie.. i don't know what the rest of their music is like but they should be shot for that alone)
permalink What
No UKIP circlejerk ?
permalink Farage and his smug face
all over the TV :(
permalink I'm not sure what's worse
his moosh or the faces of a load of blubbing LibDems
permalink Lib Dems losing their deposits
is quite satisfying . . . maybe they will turn on Clegg now
permalink I've actually just cheered a Lib Dem victory
mainly because it involve absloute arsehole Cambridgeshire County Council leader Nick Clarke being booted out. Seems much of his vote share went purple.
permalink except this turns out to be untrue
none of his vote went to UKIP. At all. The lib Dems beat him fair and square.
permalink he looks like someone shit in a sock

It needs a couple of listens to get into, but it's pure genius throughout.
permalink Something for the friday club ?
http://lifx.co/main/#
permalink We've generally been quite happoy with the flexibility and convenience offered by
light switches, but I like the thinking.

If it didn't involve coloured lighting, which I am a bit suspicious of, I'd be very enthusiastic about Phillips Hue.

Also, Friday Club seems to be more or less dead since I moved, their motivation seems to have waned.
permalink Hue is stupidly expensive and a total gimmick.
I'm not convinced that people would actually like controlling their lights with a smartphone once the novelty had worn off.
permalink The sound control
on the lifx seems like a nice touch, certainly for smoking
permalink indeed.
.
permalink They're still not cheap though,
basically the same price as Hue.

Also, I would want mini screw fittings for lamps in my living room, which neither Hue nor LIFX seem to do.

My policy has typically been to keep the light levels as low as possible to mute the impression of untidiness. I also have an issue as a result of sitting with a lamp on my right, and nothing on my left, this means that after watching a movie or something, my left pupil is considerably more dilated than my left.

I expect my lighting will get sorted out in a few weeks anyway ;-)
permalink you do, do you?
:)
permalink I wish I hadn't clicked that.

permalink Since we're on about music...
We went to see Nabucco the other day, and I enjoyed it so had a look in Oxfam to see if they had it on CD. They didn't, but they had Tosca for 80p so I bought that instead. Only disc 1 is missing, so I've only got the second half of Tosca.
permalink Which I assume is called "ca"
The person that donated the CD to Oxfam clearly couldn't give a "tos"
permalink Ha.
I've just ordered a variable temp kettle for £50. I think the one you were looking at is available without the toaster for £60: link.

There's no price difference between amazon and curries.
permalink Cool, I will look when I'm outside of the webnanny
Thank you very much!
permalink I'm having a Haim moment
...
permalink whatever happened?
???
permalink Could listen to Falling all morning...
Though Spotify has lead me on to this now - www.amazon.co.uk/Just-...
permalink I've been avoiding them a bit,
until the album comes out, I didn't want to get all excited and then only have a couple of tracks to listen to.
What's the score though, they've been the next big thing for ages now, and the album's still not out...
permalink Due out in June
Playing all the festivals but no real UK tour
permalink I have a deep
hatred of Haim, stemming from the first single sounding like what Justin Bieber sounds like. I unfortunately have heard things by Bieber. I don't want to be remindeded of them.
permalink you're either turning into cowjam
or you need to up your hrt dose
permalink my pc speakers

permalink I'm going for a bike ride at 9am tommorow

permalink that looks good
I really never did enough cycling around the place when I was in Cambs...

This was a short run this morning:
