Not 'mod', but digging the new Nick Cave album. Not as immediate as say 'Dig Lazarus Dig', for example, but a fine record nonetheless

I'll start by giving my review of Johnny Marr who i saw @ the sold out leadmill in Sheffield last night,we all no or should no hes a guitar legend & didnt let us down but what surprised me was his vocals live, excellent, his own stuff is very old school indie he chuckd a cover of the clash i fought the law in & brought the house down with ths smiths..light that never goes out, bigmouth,& a 10 out 10 performance of how soon is now...defo worth seeing.

Saw Johnny in the Limelight in Belfast last night, and I echo everything you've already said. Musically, Marr and his band were incredibly tight, and the quality of the vocals was an unexpected surprise. The encore comprised I Fought the Law (good cover), Getting Away with It (decent), There is a Light (brilliant) and a sublime How Soon is Now, which had grown men of a certain age (myself included) on the verge of tears! And he looked good too, great hair and a beautifully tailored 3 button blazer  8)

These Plimsalao's are really nice, especially the beige ones. Like the flat sole.

Have a pair of

and White/Blue Veja Taua's

Both more practical for warm summer days,
so toying with the idea to invest in some hungaryian shoe craftmanship, which a friend of mine is wearing

My Hungarian is rusty  ;) any idea of the cost of these?

Hi DrGonzo,
I also failed to read anything of these hungarian words.But actually it says, "The webshop is temporarily closed!"...was open some weeks ago...
There are not really a bargain, they cost about 80-90 depending on style, not sure about postage. But quality is really good (what i can say about the pairs of my friend)

65-75 for well made trainers doesn't seem too excessive; if they last well, then they'd certainly be worth the money. I'll keep checking the site, thanks for flagging these up  :)

Finally got round to buying On Sunset Lake by Kontiki Suite and it is utterly gorgeous; been playing a track called Music Man over and over.  Just loving the arrangements and that slide guitar.  Must thank Monkey for putting me onto this (and pleased you like those Spanish language CDs that I sent you)

KS are hoping to issue On Sunset Lake on vinyl, Ady. I follow them on twitter; if there are any further developments, I'll post something on here. If Monkey doesn't beat me to it!!

Films / TV / Re: What are you watching?

I've got into the foreign thrillers on BBC4. The Bridge, Borgen & now Spiral.
Liked both of these... have you watched Braquo, french crime series set in Paris

Braquo is superb, like a french version of The Shield. Can't wait for the 3rd season. Highly recommended

Tyrannosaur last Friday. Harrowing, upsetting, compelling, awesome.

Amazing movie, but I wont be in a hurry to watch it again.

Agreed. Very black, and certainly no Rom Com. Anyway else catch the movie on Channel 4 last night with the 2 ex soldiers. Kind of like a modern day Wicker Man (not the American re-make with Nicholas Cage either which was dire). That was also very disturbing not to say violent with a nasty twist at the end.

What was it called?

Kill List. It is one seriously dark, f**ked up movie. My fellow countryman Michael Smiley provides the only moments of light relief, and the last half hour is genuinely nasty. I loved it!!  :-\

I'm sure a few of you will know this blog by Monkey of this parish.

Latest article is a homage to Curtis..very well written piece as are most of the reviews/reflections.


I allways look forward to monkey picks. Turned me on to loads of good music.

+1, yet to get a bad steer from him, and his blog is always a good read
