    Perhaps she should have the lawyer charged with murder. That might buck a few people up!

    I quite like them, and having never attended a gig, can't say for sure, but the concert on Sky Arts recently from the late 90's, 3 man era, they didn't impress me as a live band, but as BD says, their songs often work quite well, Motorcycle Emptiness, A design for life, and If you tolerate this are all great BUT with preachy nonsense lyrics, by and large, and another irritant is the drummers lack of imagination. You can pretty much play the same drum pattern for emptiness and tolerate.


    Just back from the town they set their recent video in, Tenby.


    Manic Street Preachers - The Secret He Had Missed (Official Video) ft. Julia Cumming - YouTube

    They have lots of good stuff on there. The Yes programme is part of the Classic Artists series, and the others, Jethro Tull and the Moody Blues have both been on recently. All are (were) available on DVD, I have the Moodies one.


    I can record the Genesis docu tonight, and upload the recording to a filesharing site, if anyone would like it. Can't edit the ads, etc, I have record but not edit facilities.

    Quoting myself, but only to highlight said recording:

    Absolutely amazing. Emma Raducanu has just made history in Tennis, being the youngest and also qualifier to win an Open.


    Let's hope she does not fade away and have many more titles.:)

    I don't think she will fade away, she seems totally focused and amazingly able to deal with it all, match play and mindset wise. Fantastic achievement, let's hope she manages a few more firsts, though it's hard to imagine what's left! :/

    For me, their best song is "The Day Before You Came", atmospheric, superb lyrics that tell you everything about her future by focusing on her past, pop songs don't really come any better.

    Sarah Harding of Girls Aloud died this morning, aged just 39. She'd had breast cancer, which is much more treatable now but a year ago revealed it had spread to other parts of her body.


    I'm assuming there probably aren't any Girls Aloud fans here. As far as manufactured pop acts go I really liked them, they had some good catchy songs and put on a good live show. It's very sad news she's died so young.

    Sad indeed, she was told back in January she wouldn't see another Christmas, apparently. Whatever one's views on manufactured pop acts, she didn't deserve this. RIP.

    It's no contest really. I think I'd vote for anyone over Trump. He is not a politician, and has no interest in his country, or any other. Becoming president was just another tick in a box on his bucket list. As for Biden, I was hopeful, but it seems he was merely the least worst candidate on the voting sheet. He seems to have achieved nothing, except mess up Afghanistan, (by default, admittedly), thus making him America's Tony Blair. Not a compliment.


    I can fully understand America's wish to walk away from Afghanistan. It's a mess, and always will be (at least until it's culture catches up with the rest of the world, so likely about 800 years. As an ex-high ranking British Army friend of mine once said, after being there, they still live like it's the 12th century!) but surely, they could see that the taliban had merely melted into the general population, waiting the inevitable departure of the western forces which they were never brave enough to face across a battlefield in uniform. Killing and domineering civilians is so much easier!

    Exactly. I'm not overwhelmed by any of the three tracks so far.


    But, I know I'll still buy the CD. Probably listen to it once, place it on the shelf, and forget all about it.

    As I pretty much have with Night Siren and Edge of Light, Wolflight got a few plays first. For that reason, I won't be buying it, as I haven't since Edge of Light. This last track sound exactly like most of those 3. What has happened to him? Once, you could count on his albums to surprise and innovate, it's like he's lost the ability to "hear" what he is doing.

    Very sad. I knew they were getting on in years but hadn't heard he was sick. A true legend, what a career.

    It had been in the news a week or two back that he was not going to be taking part in the upcoming gigs, due to ill health, but didn't know it was so serious.


    RIP
