  1. I have never knowingly listened to music and thought, Aah, this is the Arctic Monkeys. They are from Sheffield and play jangly guitar pop like a million other bands, right? Set me straight, I can go on Apple Music and click on something. Where do I start? The last thing I listened to was Oliver Nelson’s “The Blues and the Abstract Truth” which was recorded in 1960, before I even came to this planet.
  2. My vinyl copy is excellent quality. Faultless. I had only heard this album via streaming up until today and knew it would be a lot better on vinyl. The resolution and dynamics are incredible. Sat listening and thinking “Wait, that didn’t happen last time this was on!”
  3. Just been to the record shop. Entered my purchases into the Discogs App... Sticker on the right is what I paid. Near mint condition too.
  4. It was 40p to STAND on the Kop when I started going to Hillsborough. 25p for a pie. You could also have a free fight with some Millwall fans when they interrupted you with their Molotov cocktails and brass knuckles while you are sitting on the steps, reading the 20p match day program. It was 2p for the bus back home to Pitsmoor. Mind you, Wednesday were rubbish in them days. None of this winning 6 - 0 malarkey.
  5. It’s been more than 15 minutes since we last scored. What are they messing about at.?
  6. I reckon @DoorDoor has invented a kind of holographic fish with brass valves that has massive knockers and a shaved fanny. PornHub were like; "No dude, that's too weird, have you tried owlstalk.co.uk - they are Sheffield Wednesday fans".
  7. The Mambo infused, Reggae version of "Twist and Shout" by Chaka Demus & Pliers. Honest. They took a raucous pop anthem and made it into joyous, fizzy Caribbean fun. Probably not what Lennon was imagining when he wrote it. I love the Beatles and have all their records. The most respected record label in Jazz is Blue Note. They have an awesome back catalogue and they also love the Beatles. Blue Note Plays the Beatles. 165 € for the CD on Amazon - I saw a used copy for 6.00 € recently. I love Blue Note Records.
  8. Have a look here - https://www.nchsoftware.com/software/free-downloads.html?software=videopad&kw=free video editing software&gclid=CjwKCAiAtdGNBhAmEiwAWxGcUg6JaOC3Ulah7Me5Xl85EarWeVR3B7vZtVSeGaXluWCAq4CMbcdGsRoCx9EQAvD_BwE I use Final Cut Pro but that's Mac only and costs money. There's a free version of Da Vinci Resolve that is quite good, but not really for beginners.
  9. That's just mean and spiteful. You don't love me anymore.
  10. Mods, plz merge. We have 2 threads and Trevor one has 200 quid to spend on speakers.
  11. Dan, those Klipsch R41 PM are lovely, especially if your living space isn't able to accommodate big towers. I love my Klipsch RF7 but I really really want a pair of La Scala. Monica says no. You will have to buy them for me.
  12. Can you get Magnat speakers in the UK? It's a German brand, couldn't find them on amazon.co.uk Their Monitor Active 2000 sells for 200 € or so for a pair over here and it's got a phono pre-amp built in. Bluetooth as well. I like Magnat, had 2 or 3 pairs in the past. Still have a pair of their towers in my home office setup, although they have been tinkered with quite a bit - replaced drivers, rebuilt the crossovers, rewired internally... OK, the cabinets still have the logo on them
  13. RIP Robbie. The world is a worse place without you. One love.
  14. So it's one record shop... https://www.bigissue.com/culture/music/an-independent-record-store-is-boycotting-adeles-new-album-in-a-row-over-vinyl/ This bit is the best: “We would only have sold about three copies in total if we were stocking it, so it won’t make any difference to her whatsoever,” said Savage. I had five vinyl albums on pre-order with a November 19 release date, same as hers. They all turned up.
  15. I've seen Steve Evans without his clothes on.
  16. Snooty, you idle sod. Get yer finger out. This is the Official Matchday Thread now. Who are we playing anyway?
  17. Shiny shiny. What are they? Here's a picture of a Klipsch RF7 Mk3. 103 dB sensitivity. Almost five feet tall. I have two of them in my living room . Gimme some horns!
  18. I could have spent the money on a used Nissan Qashqai but bought brand new Klipsch Heritage HP3 headphones instead... https://www.gvibes.com/product/klipsch-heritage-ebony-hp-3-over-ear-headphones-1064324-174851 For when I need to rock out but don't want to wake the girls.
  19. Would you be ok with your boss saying, “we are only paying you 50p for the work that you do today, the end result is the same, at a fraction of the price”.
  20. Dead at 65. Sheffield legend and true musical innovator. My thoughts go out to his wife Lynne. Waiting in line at the Leadmill to see Tack>>Head play in 1989, Rich turns up, "Hi pauli I knew there would be a queue , brought a bottle of Jack" . The people behind me start to make a fuss, so I tell them "he's 50% of the Cabs, have a swig of his whisky". I left for Germany shortly after that. This dying thing gets a bit worrying when it starts coming for your mates. Rest in Peace you crazy fücker.
  21. Just what the world needs right now, another Kanye West album.
