  1. Best song on the album. Those string and horn arrangements are stunning, and comprise one of my favourite Bruce moments, ever.
  2. I love this. My goodness, he's written some great songs over the years.
  3. I've said it before and I don't mind repeating it. Fuck off Ron with your childish "I know something that you don't" posts and photos. What's the point?
  4. We've just had one. And a DVD. And an archive thing. And a studio album.
  5. Indeed. I myself have occasionally thrown sand in people's underwear over the years, and may have lobbed in a grenade or two. But this one has reached a new low. Or high, depending on your position.
  6. David Byrne's American Utopia. Sorry Bruce, been following you, queuing for you, bleeding my bank accounts to the point of anaemia and beyond for decades, but David nailed it on Broadway. Saw the show twice as a theatre/arena production. But this tweeked Broadway show puts you in his dust. Joyous, inclusive, funny and musically ahead of its time. It makes SOB look like an anachronism.

  8. Was on my top three music books of 2019. Must read it again.
  9. I watched it in Imax the other day with my eldest, who's developing into an amateur expert on WW1 and 2. He spotted some minor inaccuracies but it didn't detract from a splendid film. Have to agree with the ravings about cinematography. Outstanding.
  10. Second series of Sex Education is hilarious, with a sprinkling of pathos. Great writing.
  11. I discovered recently that it's Bowie himself playing that dirty riff on Rebel Rebel. Always thought that it was Ronson.
  12. And rather than sweat it out with the Great Unwashed in Cardiff 2013 (archive series, archive series) he had himself one of those there hospitality suites instead.
