RE: Have you had Covid yet?

All three of us that have worked Deep cleaning them from the first UK case we got in York managed to dodge it for over two years until we all succumbed i the same week. hardly surprising it was going to happen as we all are in one vehicle. The other two lads had horrendous hangover style headaches and no energy for days as their symptoms whereas mine was just like a bad cold. I had one day where i went to bed early as I felt awful but other than that a bit heavy headed, sneezing and blocked nose. No temperature or taste loss. Weirdest bit was I was testing everyday and coming back negative. The first day when I, and it happened overnight, felt massively better was the day I tested positive. Another anomaly I've noted from three families I know is that the kids, kids boyfriends/girlfriends, father have all got it yet, one of the families twice yet the mother in all three families hasn't. Weird that the mothers may be asymptomatic or just superspreaders.

RE: [VIDEO] What gig did you just go to?


Von Hertzen Brothers at The Parish in Huddersfield. Excellent venue for gigs.
Great band from Finland. Quite a varied repertoire from Folk to Rock with bits of electronica and Prog sometimes.

RE: The Sparks Brothers

It is brilliant even if you aren't a massive fan. I can also recommend one that I think was on Sky Arts about The Go Go's. Pretty enlightening too.

RE: Energy crisis

As was stated earlier the problem with wind power, and I think the huge wind farms off shore and on land near us look amazing, was shown several years ago when we actually had the last bad winter with a good week or so of snow. The one time when people really needed power not one turbine was turning for over a week. Maybe it is a phenomena of our weather here but there was absolutely no wind over this period of time.
As for Heat Pumps, then unless you are extremely well insulated you aren't going to get benefit and as for the prices here they are astronomical. I have a friend in New Zealand and they are fitting them there at no more cost than a traditional gas Central Heating System if you want one fitting?
Her reaction to the charges here was somebody is lifting our legs with those prices.
Lifting your leg so high you can get it behind your head.
Maybe we can get New Zealand suppliers and fitters here?

RE: [VIDEO] What gig did you just go to?

Saturday I got a ticket from a friend for Nick Masons Saucerful Of Secrets gig at York. The really early Floyd from the Syd Barrett era is not really my thing but saying that I really enjoyed it. Plus they played Echoes and One Of These Days which were pretty epic. Great live band including Gary Kemp of Spandau on guitar who did his best Barrett and Gilmour impressions. Impressive.
The next night is was Carl Palmer, only surviving member of ELP. Again not a band I really like anymore but it was out local town hall and I was intrigued as there no keyboards!
All the original parts are played between the guitarist and bass/chapman stick players. To cut a long story short I rally enjoyed it. The two young guys were amazing. Guitarist really connected with the crowd and having a laugh with them. Carl himself seemed very amiable and quite humble. He came stage front to introduce each track, maybe explain a bit about them and had plenty of amusing banter with the crowd. Two great nights out.

[VIDEO] RE:What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

Absolutely loving the new Marillion album. The past few have been a bit hit and miss for me but this one has had rave reviews, highest chart entries all over the world for a very long time and a rarity for me as I love every track.
Especially loving this track. Very likely to be a gig highlight. The end section, it is in three parts on the album, is a bit of a tribute to the Health Service and the nurses incorporating how they managed to save a good friend who appeared to have terminal cancer and all the long hours during Covid.

RE: [VIDEO] What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

I first heard the Alex Lifeson track on YouTube and immediately thought that sounds a bit like Poppy.
I posted that and the first reply was highly dismissive. Probably because she's done so many style changes from awful sugary pop at first to the last two albums which veer all over from Electronica, Growly Metal, Punk, Shoegaze with just some very clever compositions. Anyway  I posted a link to this and the following post was "He has a point!"
I think is incredibly similar?

RE: The 355



Sorry but as soon as I saw 355 I was immediately drawn to one of these. The Gibson 355 in white. Always wanted one. They unfortunately cost thousands if you can find one.
Anyway wrong 355. I'll get my coat................

RE: [VIDEO] What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

Loving Poppy's new album Flux. She's changed style yet again. Quite grungy and shoegazer stuff on the album although in fairness no two tracks are alike and there is pure pop to punk.

RE: [VIDEO] What gig did you just go to?

Saw Genesis too at Leeds. I'd seen them several times before including the 82 reunion. I didn't really want to see this tour as being a massive fan of Phil as a drummer I didn't want to see him like that. But at the last minute I was offered a ticket near the front so had to go. Have to say I like all eras of their music and loved every second of the show. During the reunion show Phil played drums on every track bar Turn It On Again. On Monday night I'd swear Nic plays more in Phil's style than Chester ever did. During some of the instrumental sections I completely forgot it wasn't Phil playing. Sad to see the later dates have been postponed as I know a couple of friends that were supposed to be going to see them. Then saw Steve Hackett on Thursday doing the Seconds Out album in whole. That was excellent too.

RE: Lorry drivers

Maybe we can all go out on a Thursday night at 8pm and clap  for the lorry drivers after all it worked for the NHS didn't it?.............

RE: [VIDEO] What gig did you just go to?

Been using a pair of the Elacin ER20 for years. Good quality, really do bring the volume down a bit and tame that harsh top end you get in some venues from cymbals. Doesn't dull the sound just takes the piercing edge off.

RE: [VIDEO] What gig did you just go to?

End of the month for me. Can't wait. Seen all him on all of his last few tours and Seconds Out is a favourite album of mine anyway.

Many eons ago our band used to cover Sharp Dressed Man and Gimme All Your Lovin. RIP

RE: I thought car insurance was supposed to be cheaper this year?

Sure I read somewhere that your renewal quote from January will not be allowed to be higher, using the same conditions, than those offered to new customers? 
Always bugged me that they did this.

RE: [VIDEO] E3 2021 | Summer Game Fest

2142 and they are still using standard rifles, machine guns, fossil fuel burning  helicopters and tank models from the recent past and present. I was hoping for something a bit more advanced or futuristic.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

Took me an hours drive to get each of mine and that's through the Ambulance Service. My mate who is practically wheelchair bound and at risk as is his Mrs had to wait ages to get their first jab and were offered them in ridiculous places bearing in mind they have no transport. Eventually he managed to get his first not too far away by bus. He's been waiting for the second but in the meantime started getting real bad stomach pains and has been diagnosed with diverticulitis. A few days after this diagnosis he got a very brief message to say a nurse was coming to give him his 2nd jab. He wasn't convinced it was legitimate so rang the surgery to confirm and it was. Two days later jab done. He suspects that when the surgery talked to him on the phone and he said the only time he'd left the house since it all kicked off was for his first jab it set some alarm bells ringing.

RE: [VIDEO] death kiss

Not sure but if you like big 80's analogue synth stuff then maybe have a listen to the group called Gunship. Great massive synth sounds and a very 80's film feel.

RE: Stabal music - on-line concerts...

I did a similar thing with a site called Veep to see a Poppy online gig. Was very well presented.

RE: help with song title

All music by Mike Lawrence is the only credit on there. Found the track mentioned and Shazam doesn't recognise any of the music at all.

RE: help with song title

I'm on it. Downloaded a dodgy version of the film for purely historical education and to find out what this track is?
Honest Guvnor!

RE: [VIDEO] RIP: Prince

I don't think a lot of people realise what an incredible musician he was? His drumming was impeccable, great groove on the bass and guitar like a modern take on Hendrix. There were a lot of nods to Hendrix in phrases and style in what he just played there.

RE: [VIDEO] What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

Here is what you wouldn't expect as a Prog song. Glitching done live. It is crazy how tight the band plays the beginning. Never thought they could pull this off live.

RE: [VIDEO] What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

Looking forward to their new album. Modern Progressive Rock that actually doesn't sound stuck in the 70's.
Craig Blundell, their ex drummer played for many people from Steven Wilson to Matt Berry and demoes for Mapex and Roland Drums, Nathan King on Bass the brother of Mark. Jem Godfrey music producer and writer of many top 40 hits and every jingle indent on Radio 2. John Mitchell also front man or guitarist of too many bands too mention and producer of many more.

RE: [VIDEO] The Nevers

Looks interesting but also a bit X Men moved into the past?

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

Not at all convinced that the majority of these who claim they can't wear one have even tried. I've Asthma and manage to wear one for hours on end. Admittedly they don't feel that pleasant when you first ever try one but give it 5 minutes and you don't notice anymore. I've never noticed it restricting my breathing in any sense whatsoever so I tend to call bollocks on that excuse for the majority of people. As for not liking it over the nose and mouth then I also wonder do they never wear a scarf over their face on a really cold day, ever worn a crash helmet. Now that is weird when you aren't used to it. As for the excuse they are useless then we have been wearing one or an RPE hood for over a year, 4 nights a week in a Covid environment and both of us haven't caught it yet and lastly i'd ask the same person if you can't wear a mask to protect others too then in future when family and friends are round and you cough or sneeze then why cover you nose and mouth wit your hand. From now on you should just snot your germs out over them! :)
