  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    It's obvious that you don't live in the UK - the drivel we get on the radio would send me round the bend!

    Hmm - yeah - great gig and I was there - bummer about the excessive heat in the Royal Festival Hall though. Blinding set however, and you can hear my raucous gob at the end of the set - he he he hmm ;)

    His set at Glastonbury (same formula) was almost as good - though he should have done Stephanie Knows Who at the end rather than 7 and 7 is...

    Kind of Blue, Ah Um and Love Supreme.
    All mentioned above.

    I picked up a mono Mingus - Dark Saint and the Sinner Lady (only had the CD up to now) - and this might just replace the Coltrane - oh, in a year or so...

    Tony - can we have a "dating section" - I think I want to seduce Joel, we seem 'musically compatible"

    :D

    Nice – I’m envious. Which pressing did you find – US Impulse with heavy gatefold sleeve or the UK one on HMV? I’d kill for a mint original US stereo copy, mine is the 80s DMM Impulse which does actually sound excellent.

    Joel does indeed appear to have rather decent taste! I intend to pick his brains on Japanese traditional music sometime soon….

    Tony.

    This has proven to be very difficult, but here goes:

    Lloyd Cole and the Commotions : Rattlesnakes

    Prefab Sprout : Steve McQueen

    Aimee Mann : I'm With Stupid

    Anyone out there approving of my choices??

    It's the UK one - a lucky find in Lancaster Market whilst being entertained at Chez Duerden. The US one would be far to lucky!

    There was a Davis / Porgy and Bess that looked like a UK original, but at £18 decided it was a bit much - although if it had been a favourite Miles I might have gone for it.

    I got a Speakers Corner reissue of Mingus, Mingus..(etc) recently - good pressing. I might get a similar of DSATSL to compare the Mono with Stereo. The mix/balance seems very different from the stereo CD.

    Uber-flat mono jazz and nerdy 180g re-issues. I'm just confused!

    Yes, kevinl, I strongly approve of 'I'm with Stupid' by Aimme Mann. I reckon it's her best album.

    Today, I'd vote for:

    Gene Clark 'No Other'
    Laura Nyro 'New York Tendaberry'
    Husker Du 'Zen Arcade'

    I've got "Lost In Space" by Aimee Mann. Guess I'll have to check out "I'm With Stupid".

    I'd have to agree with anything by Aimee Mann, or 'til tuesday for that matter. Everythings Different Now is a fantastic pop record.

    So difficult to answer this question. I'm sure that in a couple of days i'll totally disagree with these choices but here goes....

    1/ The Icicle Works - 'The Small Price Of A Bicycle'
    2/ Frank Zappa - 'Bongo Fury'
    3/ Yes - 'Fragile'

    I have left out compilations as this is cheating IMHO....:D

    This week's version:

    Manu Chao, Clandestino
    Ojos de Brujo, Bari (Spanish Flamenco Punk; brilliant)
    Bardo Pond, Dilate (Velvet Undergound meets Portishead; the singer is so-so, but otherwise the album's brilliant)
