  1. Hey Lee, I assume it's The Comet Is Coming download you're asking about. Well, it's from London. post modern & super hip. It's groove based & intense. It's the sorta shizz I love & would play selected tracks at a dance party. The nu London school has it's antecedents. Back in the early eighties I grooved to Pigbag, Pinski Zoo & Rip, Rig & Panic ( featuring a very young Neneh Cherry). They had a punk like ethos. Outside the establishment. The new stuff is like that too. The scene is eclectic and inclusive, jamming & supportive. If they weren't such great musicians, I wouldn't be real interested. Mind you, these thoughts are coming from a farm boy who is soon going to go and take the balls of a young bull calf in the paddock. Urban music inna da bush. Crazy contradiction

  9. Nice one Mark. An Italian stallion with huge balls & all the romance of a Puccini opera. They would be a pr of 6922's doing the pre duty, i assume. GLWTS
  10. Check out any ( or all) Lee 'Scratch' Perry. Prince Jammy, King Tubby, Scientist, Tapper Zukie, Adrien Sherwood etc, etc. Go to the roots. The original & the best. Currently spinning, Spinning this earlier,
  11. Superb! Slater & crew are world class. Great SQ too.
  12. Just found this thread. Don't have Fox, so will miss some great games. Yep, the Fijians charged out of the blocks against us but the technical superiority in set pieces was always going to tell. Plus the fitness & professionalism in the end. The game against Wales will be a real test of technique & organisation. I think that the Welsh will be happy to play without the ball & capitalise on errors, of which we are quite prone.
  13. Mate, I'm glad that the situation is resolved. But, I do feel sorry for Earle. Things must be very difficult in his personal life. I have had several long phone conversations with the man, back in the day. He was generous with his time & knowledge. He produced gorgeous pieces of amplifier kit that won many hearts. I hope that one day he can get his bespoke business back on track. I also empathise with those fellow music lovers who have been disappointed with their dealings with him. Nuff said. p.s. I can't wait to feel the sonic impact of those big bad boy JBL's threatening the foundations of Chez Daz Enjoy your journey bro
  14. Looks like Keith @cheekyboy has been working with Tony on those platforms. I see both their logos on them. Will have to get in touch with Tony again.

    The Ashes

    It was edge of the seats stuff. I would wake up once or twice a night to check the score. Was obsessed with the games, as everyone else was. The bowlers were magnificent, Broad especially for the Poms. It was the lowlights that you highlight that caused the frustration. Like watching the Wallabies lose with ball with the tryline beckoning. Doesn't mean that I will stop watching the Rugby tests. I personally thought it was the wrong decision to send the Poms in but I was suggesting that the Captain should be the only member of the team to make that decision. Everyone else has their thoughts but it should be the skipper's call.

    The Ashes

    I bet the bowlers would have been begging for another days rest. They had been absolutely flogged only 3 days earlier. They would have loved to have been sitting in the cool watching the batsmen make hay. It should be the the skippers call, otherwise what's the point of having one. No one would have dared to question Chappelli or Alan Border's decision and that is how it should be. The skippa is the skippa is the skippa. No need for a committee or 6 vice-captains. I'm glad it's over. So freakin frustrating.

    The Ashes

    We're in big strife. Cummins & Hazelwood are buggered. Siddle's chuckin pies & Lyon's just snared the first wicket.

    The Ashes

    Warner has scored 21 centuries, 30 50's, average of 46 (dropping from nearly 50), 78 tests played. Gordon Greenidge 19 centuries, 34 50's average of 44.7, 108 tests played I considered Greenidge one of the great openers that I have watched. Cricket is a game of stats.

    I wonder what hot-spot would have shown for the Warner dismissal?

    The Ashes

    Pleasantly surprised this morning. Expected England to be 4-350. Batting looked easy when I retired to bed. M. Marsh has always had nice late away swing & his inclusion was justified by being the most economical & effective Australian bowler. I'm afraid I wouldn't have given Siddle a game this series. No other team in the world would leave Starc out of the bowling attack. Expect M. Marsh to get a 5 fa & a big ton.

    The Ashes

    Just got home. What a lovely batting wicket. Looks like an adelaide pitch. Why aren't we batting? Since when did an Australian team insert the opposition? Its gunna be a long day in the field. I'm going to bed. Night gents

    The Ashes

    Fast bowlers get injured. We have four guys that are world class flingers so that we can be flexible. Not the worst situation to be in
