  1. Well, everything's going to plan: taxpayer fund it, then depreciate it to lower than a snake's belly, and flog it off to your mates. Margin! Sydney Morning Herald, today. Once sold, expect the owners to go to Govt cap-in-hand for the taxpayer to stump up with the money for "necessary maintenance".
  2. tex perkins - far be it from me meaty lo-fi country rock. No, hang on, it's from 1996. I stand corrected: meaty lo-fi Americana.
  3. Pretty accurate. The only problem is that Closer can be treated as a concept album. Nobody talks about this because concept albums were no-no's in punk and post-punk circles. Even so. When viewed as concept album, it's a bit like listing Pink Floyd's 40 best songs and having bits of The Wall, Animals, or Dark Side of the Moon peppered throughout.
  4. @BLAH BLAH that Caol Ila is my go-to because I can't afford a certain 30YO Bruichladdich. A remarkably good whisky at a good price.
  5. fixed that for you. Slàinte mhath!
  6. No, keep the discussion going, it might have legs
  7. C'mon SNA 3Kabal members. 'Fess up! Who slipped up here? @candyflip once you passed 3,000 posts on SNA you should have received a Diana Krall LP anonymously in the mail. Clearly the roster has failed us (and you). The logic is that by that number of posts you should have got to the point where it's all about the sound and the stereo, and if it takes Diana Krall to make your kit sound the best, then welcome to the club!

  8. Just realised I have the promo copy (jewel case) and first Sub Pop release (digipak). This is a gentle album but I'm a bit lost for how to describe it, as I type these words the song playing would not be out of place on a Sigur Ros album.
  9. sixties and seventies flavours in this restful melodic singer-songwriter pop-rock album. Understatedly sweet.
  10. Also not fully ambient, but playing now in case I needed @The Fresh Prince 's copy as a back-up.
  11. Some fine music being played in SNA households today it seems. The Raven, and Ride's Nowhere are particualr favourites in this household. This is not normally to my taste with its latter-day R&B, which is not the sixties R&B nor the 70's R&B, but they handle "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' very capably.
  12. I like the red. It matches my eyes.
  13. I don't know what the internet says about dealing with swelling. My backyard carpentry skills would have me using the biscuit cutter or small circular saw edge-wise up the guts to cut a deep groove behind the fascia; and then clamping (sash clamps) and glue to compress and adhere the proud part back against the rest of the cabinetry. Sometimes with patience a drill bit can do the same task as a saw blade.
  14. Uttermost envy on your workshop. It's beautiful. Why mess it up with sawdust, five-ply, fixings, and other clutter? Simply leave it as an artifact that has ultimate possibilities (such as furniture).
  15. 2017 release. This has a bit of mischief in the cover and title because where you end up at the end of the album is quite a different place to where you started. The journey is well worth it, the track sequencing is faultless, some songs here are Rebecca Barnard's best, and the production and studio craft really make them shine. A rich and fulfilling rock/ trip-hop / power pop / atmospheric discovery that goes into my "year's best" box.
  16. Greg's got a new album out! It's been a long wait. I hope it's as good as his first. So many good songs on this one
  17. I've never heard the Peter Green version. Guessing it's a rarity.
  19. I feel like I'm being shouted at when I BROWSE THE CLASSIFIEDS LISTINGS. 😟
