  1. Made me think of some of the Bierkeller gigs I attended: Dr and The Medics when there was a live broadcast by Whistle Test, The Chameleons, KRS-1/Boogie Down Productions, Fuzz Box/Ted Chippington. Sure there must be others.
  2. Fully agree. This was just a stop-gap solution to listen to stuff in the interim. Once we move back for good, I have been given the nod to purchase a proper system.
  3. I left the country in 1998, and put all my stuff, including vinyl, into storage. We bought a house in Somerset last year, and moved our possessions into the attic space there. Unpacking my records was the highlight, and that afternoon I dashed out for a bluetooth deck and speaker. Fairly crappy kit, but it did the trick.
  4. I still harbour some guilt for getting them to replace a copy of "The Queen Is Dead" after I complained it had been sold warped. I had left it in my car whilst I visited a friend, and it had bent wildly out of shape in the heat. The guy behind the counter knew I was lying. I knew he knew I was lying.
  5. @EnclosureSurge recognised the bag pic a few years back and put me onto the book by Richard King 'Original Rockers': worth a read if you spent any time in the store. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/apr/18/original-rockers-richard-king-bristol-record-shop-revolver-review
  6. Yes, it is. Likewise, I spent many happy hours in there: just across the Triangle from school.
  7. I used to go the record fairs at Transport House on a regular basis, and have a stash of Joy Division and New Order items in my collection. Sadly I was never flush enough to afford either the original of An Ideal For Living or the Sordide Sentimental release. Both of which went for small fortunes in Peter Hook's recent auction. Probably the most valuable item I have is this: https://www.discogs.com/Various-A-Factory-Sample/release/11395
  8. Building the playlist, track by track, on Deezer.
  9. The Granary was the go-to place for discos in our senior school. One of the few places you could be reasonably sure of getting served booze at 15 or 16.
  10. Ronettes - Be My Baby. In my view the perfect pop song of all time.
  11. Any or all of: Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart Billy Bragg - Waiting For The Great Leap Forward Pet Shop Boys - Rent The Ronettes - Be My Baby The The - This Is The Day Velvet Underground - Sunday Morning Public Enemy - Rebel Without A Pause Beastie Boys - Hey Ladies Nick Cave - The Mercy Seat Run DMC - What's It All About House of Love - Destroy The Heart Sonic Youth - Teenage Riot Glenn Campbell - Witchita Lineman Kym Sims - Too Blind To See It Deee-lite - Groove Is In The Heart Grandmaster Flash - White Lines This Mortal Coil - Song To The Siren Prince - Sing 'O' The Times etc etc I could be here for days.
  12. Good analysis of the case here: https://thesecretbarrister.com/2019/03/12/the-assault-on-jack-grealish-is-14-weeks-imprisonment-the-right-sentence/
  13. Network 7 was regular viewing on Sundays at Uni. Great show for its time.
