I hope all of you in the area are OK. This brings a new element to the 'stay safe' message we have right now.

Re: 7” Vinyl Sleeves - Minutiae Help Please

Just pulled this one outas example. PVC cover almost 40 years old trashed- cover and vinyl as new 😊 I had loads of vinyl in those style covers, also for decades(!) and they went wrinkly. When I read about the possible damage caused to the records I had a look through mine and found the wrinkling wa...

Recently there was a competition by popular crisp makers to come up with new flavours.
The winner was Sunday Roast (The Crispy Bits Left In The Pan).
Runners up included Garlic Bread, Paua Fritters and Butter Chippin.
Well I had to google the last two of those - and I'm none the wiser!

Re: Best Crisp/Chip Flavour/Flavor?

Plain old plain for me please. Ready salted. (How 'convenience food' is that by the way, speaking as someone who remembers salt & shake crisps, and not the revival ones from the 80s I mean, the original ones) I note an absence of hedgehog flavour, and celery flavour - both of which existed and not j...

It’s probably not for a few days yet where you are but just to let you know you had a great time 🍺🍺🥨🍾🥂
Happy Birthday Laxman, sent with Quartz accuracy from someone who is actually in the same time zone.
I look forward to seeing pics of a birthday Clash t-shirt :arrow: :mrgreen:

Re: The Kaleb Horton Deceased Estonian Trade Minister Thread, 2020 edition

Good bye Astrid, you invented the 'cool' rock group if you ask me. Not that anyone did. Astrid’s photos of a then-unknown club band are timeless, and certainly added to their appeal. Of course the subject matter was good, but she had a great eye and technical skill as a photographer. And by all acc...

Re: The Kaleb Horton Deceased Estonian Trade Minister Thread, 2020 edition

Phil May used the same leisure centre as me and I sort of got to know him, after a mutual friend introduced us in the changing room(!) He was always a friendly cheerful fella, happy to chat. I knew he'd had a very serious health scare a few years ago with COPD but recovered and was looking after him...

Re: What's the first thing...?

Somewhere over the rainbow, I'd like to.... 1) Talk rubbish and drink for several hours with the regulars in my favourite pub. (On a night AFTER we've done all the lockdown comparisons chat, so we can talk the usual rubbish without the bloody virus even entering our thoughts) 2) Go and see some of t...

I have them both and to my ears they are not an upgrade on my remasters.
I'm almost certain the Lyceum one is taken from my remaster
Right from the horse’s mouth. Thanks for the confirmation Marky :mrgreen:
