    Match of the day - catchy little number, very untypical of Genesis at the time, sounds dated now, not least given the price paid for the player! ;)


    Pigeons - dull, repetitive, monotonous, though the lyrics are quite good, in a satirical way.


    Inside and Out - Far better than the other 2, still far from their best though.


    That said, I'd swap Match or Inside for YOSW, although the lyrics Match would stick out like a sore thumb on that album.


    I have the 3 inch CD single of this.

    I'd like to add, that I followed everything about Trump since 2017. Every imbecilic tweet, every scandal, every antic, every lie, every insane moment, every unconstitutional disgrace, every psychopathic crime against humanity. Trump is the worst leader of any country in modern history and these last four years have aged me. And I'm not even American! This whole presidency was like an extremely moronic reality TV show that transformed into a multi-layered political crime drama, there were so many times when I had to question reality. So many characters too... Stormy Daniels, The Mooch, William Barr, Kavanaugh...

    Why? Where has it got you, apart from maybe depressed? I didn't bother, and STILL came to exactly the same conclusion as you.


    It's to be hoped that he gets his come-uppance when the tax people etc catch up with him, but frankly, if he just disappears and Brand Trump never gets near any political office ever again, I'll be quite content.

    Mowed the lawns earlier.


    We're in a rental but I've already told Mrs B that when we buy somewhere the whole lawn situation is to be re-assessed. I hate lawns. Fortunately she's as keen as I am to try having a small meadow instead of a lawn.


    People rhapsodise over neat well-kept lawns but I can't stand them.

    Aren't meadows bigger than lawns?

    That's correct in both cases, and I even learned about or didn't remember the Tony Clarke bit. The Threshold experiment came to an end, because Tony Banks had played a bum note somewhere. Pinder thought the recording perfectly alright while allegedly Mr Banks insisted on re-recording. And that was that. :)

    Your turn, Jonathan!

    All as told in "Chapter and Verse", which I think does not mention Tony Clarke.


    It's quite likely that Tony Clarke did produce the track, he was the producer for the sessions King Crimson did for the first attempt at "In the court.....".


    Threshold was co-owned by the Moody Blues AND Tony Clarke, despite Tony having turned down the offer to become a full official member of the band, even though he was not playing anything, only producing. He did, however, have a lot of input, such as the concept for "To Our Children's Children's Children" Each member had specific tasks, John Lodge was sales, Ray Thomas and Justin Hayward were advertising, press relations and promotions, Graeme Edge general manager for things like contracts, Mike P was studio chief (They had their own studio within the Decca complex at West Hampstead by this time, though it wasn't fully op. till 1972, and didn't see a band recording till 1980/1) and Tony C was recording manager.


    Threshold produced and released albums and singles by Trapeze, (1st 2 albums produced by John Lodge),Timon (later Tymon Dogg), (Produced by Justin Hayward), Providence, and Nicky James, to name but 4, though only Trapeze would go on to bigger things.


    Threshold had an office in London, painted in colours for which they were sued, who by or why I don't know.

    Fair enough, I don't wish to set myself up as the yardstick of 70s band recognition! As you say, they appeared on a range of 70s light entertainment TV shows, many of which my family and I watched, though I have absolutely no memory of the band. If they'd made an impact on the singles and album charts there'd be a greater chance I and others here would remember them but the wiki piece doesn't give chart placings.


    Anyway, I'm guessing that regarding the trivia question it's moot as they surely don't qualify as Sredni 's "two well-known bands".

    I've heard of them either, despite watching many of the shows they appeared in.

    Brilliant album, "Time It's Time" is probably my favourite Talk Talk song.


    My wife used to know Mark Hollis back when she lived in Essex. We were going to Manchester airport the morning his death was announced, we were so shocked we missed the turning for the airport and had to about a 10 mile round trip to get back to it.

    I just read back through the thread and am struggling to see what's reportable.

    The post that is missing is one from Slowdancer, if memory serves, with the picture of Trump behind bars, and a post from another forum about him.


    Seems someone objects to the idea of Trump in prison, AND YET Trump himself was banging on at the last election about putting Hilary Clinton in jail for the "crime" of using the wrong email server. If that is a crime, not sure it is anywhere, let alone the USA.

    Hope it heels quickly.


    The stupid thing I've done is remove my hard hat at work and hit my head on a steal beam!... Ouch!!!!!8|||

    Reminds me of a work colleague years ago who stood up after examining something at low level, hit his hard hat on what was above him, thought himself lucky he was wearing it, and then walked off WITHOUT the hard hat which was impaled on a screw sticking out of the ceiling above him!
