  1. Listening right now: Every track is a smash to my ears.
  2. I love Zombie Zoo, so damn catchy. For me, A mind with a heart of its own and Makin' some noise. Although I recall the latter being loads of fun when I saw him live in 1992 in Birmingham.
  3. An interesting subject. Just wondering, what tracks do you not like on Full Moon Fever and Into The Great Wide Open? In my head both would have none, but I just listened and both have a track each that I could skip. Would be fun to compare.
  4. Exactly the same for me. My finger hovered over 'buy' for a while but I resisted. I see its no longer available now. Had I not got those two, I would have jumped in.
  5. Rattle & Hum is often mocked but there is an incredible album of songs in there. Heartland, Hawkmoon 269, Love Rescue Me, Angel of Harlem, All I want is You, God Part II, Desire. Had they instead worked that out to a standalone full new album, instead of including what were pretty pointless live songs and self indulgence then it would have been huge. They could have released Rattle and Hum as a standalone documentary/live album. Discounting those pants, Bad on Rattle and Hum is simply magnificent. Man, could he sing back then:
  6. I'm excited too. Finally we have a challenger for Born To Walk in the "GLOAAOTPATCYHA" awards. He has turned this into a one horse race for way too long. .
  7. The LP set has dropped below £70 on amazon UK, for anyone seeking a bargain : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Album-Collection-Vol-1987-1996-VINYL/dp/B07BLJDYVK
  8. This is just bizarre. Imagine Bruce kicking off The River tour once again. By all accounts, even the band were a bit bored with these songs towards the end last time out.
  9. To go with their Manchester gig in July, I grabbed a ticket for their Leeds gig in December yesterday. I actually really dislike the arena there but it's the only one I can do due to work. Not managed to hear the new one yet, but the reviews sound incredible. Plannig to sit down this evening and give it the attention it deserves. Their best for me are Trouble Will Find Me and High Violet.
  10. I never 'got' The Hold Steady as I always found them a bit hard work or I guess you could call it abrasive. This new solo album however is awesome. My album of the year so far.
  11. 100% agree!! If you look up best ever Glastonbury performances on line and Springsteen never features, which shows a definite missed opportunity As U2 did perfectly a year or so later, Glastonbury was a perfect opportunity to smash it by playing hit, after hit after hit. But he chose Seeds, Outlaw Pete and Hard Times Come Again No More. Instead of a walking on with an acoustic guitar to play a Joe Strummer song that nobody knew, imagine the impact had he done this:
  12. Those guys are great. I hope to catch them again soon.
  13. Inspired by the fake news elsewhere today... I have booked the following so far for 2019: 22nd January - J Mascis - Liverpool 24th January - Israel Nash - Manchester 3rd May - Josh Rouse/Grant Lee Phillips – Manchester 12th June - Wilco - Brussels 13th June - Wilco - Brussels 16th June - Wilco - Amsterdam 10th July - The National - Amsterdam
  14. Up until reading this post, I had no clue a band called Ambrosia existed. I will try and come up with some better ones, but for now that is all I have.
