I'm going to do Heston's archive when he leaves this mortal coil. I expect to find boxes and boxes of of Panic Report badges that he never quite got 'round to sending. Oh and every single flavour of super noodles packaging available.
I even have an empty packet of the discontinued "steak and ale pie" flavour.

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I might be wrong but I think that Allan Jones was a friend of Joe's from his Newport days?

On the upside at least I am one of the 7000. :mrgreen:

Just relistened to Leopardskin. Not getting much out of it. Am I missing something?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I really like it. But it's more an acquired taste.

No, I think it's pretty unmemorable.

Can't believe he gave the album an 8/10.

Yes mate it's true Allan Jones was indeed Joe's friend. Maybe that's why the questions came out as they did. Still he came across as a twat.

Apparently they are two-a-penny now and are even being given away free with special promotion packets of super noodles.

Agreed. I am one of the 7,000 who bought on release with great fanfare at Tower records. I wouldn’t give it 8/10 and why go with Rude Your Donkey ( never liked it) over one of Joe’s songs?

I like it but it's not as good as Ridie Can't Fail. ;)

The bastard! That's the last CD I mix for him. Anyway he's probably holding his head in his hands right now as Sunderland are losing.
