  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.

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

St. Vincent - MASS SEDUCTION

    Latest album just dropped and to my ears it possesses a very welcome retro sound. Mid 70's - Studio 54 in its heyday, Midtown nights, Chelsea mornings

    Hmmm lots of folk raving about this. I best investigate.

    I have her debut which I really like, this one is a bit like Goldfrapp's Black Cherry in parts but not as good!

    I love her last, self titled album - still waiting for this one to turn up.

    The cover is a work of genius.

    Good performance on Later with Jools - how did pianist manage to play in that headgear though?

    gassor "There may be more posts after this."

    I was thinking the same about the pianist, but suffocation for art's sake is a laudable outcome. In fact I thought her performance was superb. The songs on the album are quite personal following her break-up with model Cara Delevingne.

    I totally agree with this - having just discovered her for myself, I'm really loving the early stuff, particularly Marry Me; the comparison to Goldfrapp is valid, albeit Alison went from Avant-Garde to Disco in the space of one album.

    I LOVE this record. I didn't quite get the fuss about the last, good but nowhere near as good as, say, "Actor". This one deserves all the hype and plaudits.

    Actor is the high watermark for me. This has it's moments - the piano ballads are nice. I think the production is better - certainly she's suffered from sub-par production in the best. It was not quite indie low-fi, more so just poor. The production values on this album suit it mostly...

    Big Tabs frequently wrong.

    How does it compare to 'Love This Giant' the David Byrne collaboration? That album was the first time I heard St Vincent, and I loved it.

    Feminarzististic muzak I struggle with. Like an agenda Brenda.

    I once got jumped on by a couple of mad lesbians when I mistook the ladies bog at a gig.

    Scary people.

    Well worth getting excellent stuff as usual from her. Also, last album had 'Prince Johnny' and 'Digital Witness' which are constants in the car, maybe not the best of her albums but i don't think there's a duff one.

    Sounds best on the limited edition pink vinyl.....

    Seems to be around like a rash at the moment. Appeared on Chris Evans on Friday too.

    I find it an affront to hear this Tosh compared to goldfrapp.

    I bought it a few days ago and it's growing on me, a lot. The music and arrangements are really original and interesting but she also shows her emotional vulnerability.

    She seems to divide opinion: the excellent Robin Ince slagged her off at End Of The Road a few years ago when she performed with David Byrne - he called her "that woman" who played with David Byrne. The response from the crowd was equally divided between cheers and boos.

    I bought her album Actor a couple of years ago, and I'm indifferent to it, but I saw St Vincent on Graham Norton recently, and was much more impressed.

    Actor's my favourite, but the new one is really growing on me. I was very disappointed with the David Byrne collaboration. It all seemed somehow "flat" to me.
