Films / TV / Re: Seen any good films recently?
« on: April 17, 2019, 04:19:49 PM »
I saw the Sisters Brothers the other day.  That was a good movie, though nothing to do with Mod or the 6ts. .

Read the book a while back. Not seen the film yet, but hoping it does it justice

Some really good acting from the four main characters and some stunning photography.  Also there are some great laughs and dome grisly action . .

Sounds like it's worth checking out, Mr B
I don't know how it compares to the book , Doc , but it is gritty and runs to over two hours of gritty entertainment , that seems to capture something of the period . .l don't think you'd be disappointed. .

General music chat / Re: Best record shop near you?

I doubt my input here can be much useful, but just in case someone visits Valencia... In the golden age, when I was in my teens, there were at least 10 good shops dealing in vinyl here, now less than half of them remain, and only a couple worth mentioning: Harmony and Oldies.
There is only really one independant left near me and that is second hand copies only . The vinyl selection is decent enough but the quality is often poor .
With some Canadian outfit buying out HMV , that is now my nearest outlet for brand new vinyl and to be fair the selection seems to improve all the time at the cost of their cd stock. .

PG could`nt have gone to a better home!

Regarding Weller and Hewitt. I seem to remember Hewitt got the hump when Weller failed to invite him to the Brit Awards, resulting in the fall out.
I think if that is the case it is a bit childish . .

As far as the take over of PG is concerned l think you are right. .

I don't think that's Claudio singing, lol.
You are probably right , lol. However , l was referring to the instrumental music that was used on the last version of the  site . .Sorry if I wasn't clear about that.    8)
Aye , there was once a little video of his band playing outdoors somewhere , l can't remember if it was on here or on the website at some point but they were pretty decent. .
You were crystal clear, hermano, I just couldn't resist making the joke  ;). That harp's intro you talk of was surely Claudio playing in what sounded like a "Boom Boom" cover.

Nice wee harrington from Peter Werth,only 2 left in medium.

Nice one Woody.

Only 1 left now  :)

Happy to be of service Chilli.

On the Asos thing,I have a Green G4 style Harrington from them a few years ago. It's much better than Ben Sherman/Fred Perry etc. Floating back and side buckles too. Only thing I have from them but it's a beaut!

Sounds good Woodster,  but where are the photies.  .

Ok, ASOS probably is not a favourite brand around here, but they have some interesting striped polos at the moment (the 'Green Book' effect, I suppose, as greenstreet said):

https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-tall-organic-cotton-polo-with-block-vertical-stripe/prd/10958641?clr=green&SearchQuery=asos%20striped%20polo%20shirt&gridcolumn=1&gridrow=6&gridsize=3&pge=1&pgesize=72&totalstyles=31

Quite a bargain, but I can't vouch for the quality.

What I would like to know is how those two models got the gig at Asos,  and yet they aren't covered in tattoos like the Illustrated Man.
