  1. That's really good! nice job.
  2. Nils is keeping himself busy.

    I didn't bother in the end. I have been listening to his music a bit over the last few days and I like his playing a lot but I find I soon get bored of twiddly guitar solos, I actually don't think he has that many good songs to go with it. Were it a band show I would have made the effort but this 2 man show again is not for me, especially at that cost.
  3. Most off topic question ever posted on greasylake?
  4. New Poll Prelims - Bruce's best backup vocal

    I recall reading on line a review from someone who was at that show. They said the whole thing was a shambles on the night and sounded really rough and badly prepared. They were then stunned at what it sounded like when it aired on TV, so I guess it had a tonne of overdubs.

    That might not be the full tour. I just grabbed it from seetickets. I believe they cover England, Scotland and Wales only.

  7. An optimistically sized venue though. Maybe his promoter is banking on UK fans being completely ESB starved right now.

    Bloody hell!!
  9. R.E.M. Where to start?

    I would not take that site as gospel. It is just filled in from others recollection, like yours.
  10. R.E.M. Where to start?

    Inspired by this thread, I took a bit of time out to rank their albums, as per my current feeling: 1 - New adventures in HiFi 2 - Reckoning 3 - Murmur 4 - Automatic for the people 5 - Fables 6 - Life's Rich Pageant 7 - Green 8 - Out of Time 9 - Document 11 - Monster 12 - Up 13 - Accelerate 14 - Collapse Into Now 15 - Around the Sun 16 - Reveal Other than the number 1 (which I see as a perfect record), it does certainly show a band with diminishing returns and a band that was right to end when it did. Saying that, the recent clips from the Scott McCaughey benefit shows where I believe all but Stipe performed together have been brilliant to see.

    Anyone in the UK looking for a vinyl bargain: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01KXQBQIK/ 3 LP Out of Time box set down to £18.95

    Joker.
  13. R.E.M. Where to start?

    Crazy talk. How can anyone like Murmur and Reckoning but not Fables?
  14. R.E.M. Where to start?

    Although I would be there like a shot, I hope REM never go back. Most fans will admit that they quit as it was heading to stale and a reunion would be for nostalgia reasons only. From interviews given since the split, all of them seem to be on the same page about that, so I reckon it would be as likely as The Smiths. re a vinyl box. There has been nothing whatsoever mentioned, however the recent reissues have shown they are not adverse to making big bucks out of their back catalogue and I don't believe there is another band of their stature who are so badly represented by their back catalogue.
