Re: Heaven 1991: Was it worth it?

Greetings, I'm genuinely surprised DJ Culture went Top 10, especially when you consider that the remix single DJ CultureMix didn't count towards DJ Culture's chart performance, and charted separately at #40. Does anyone know how any "Top 40" chart shows dealt with that? Did they play the Grid remix...

Re: Best song from "Super"

This is the first album since Very that I've not had a promo copy in advance, so it was a interesting listening to it in the car for the first time this morning. I've glanced at the reviews and my hopes weren't high, but on first (and repeated) listens my favourite track is... Groovy ... clearly not...

Re: ...And So To Birmingham...

Great concert ... really up for it crowd and Neal seemed to be enjoying it! First time I've seen the Electric show and in the smaller size venue it worked well. Not sure why the dancers weren't used more though.

Highlights for me were Suburbia (great singalong) Go West & Vocal.

Wanted - 1 x standing ticket for Birmingham LG Arena 13/6

I'm looking for a single standing ticket for Birmingham LG Arena on Friday.

I know it's not sold out, and they are priced as low as £22 (+ £14 charges!!) on resale sites, but I thought I'd give any member who has a spare standing ticket, the chance to sell one direct without fees for both of us.

Re: Proms - Who's going then?

Very pleased I got circle tickets earlier. Just gone back to the site and bought a parking pass for the evening. Not too bad at £10.20 for next door, and as I wont arrive till around 9.00pm after a 3 hour drive, so should reduce any last minue stress :) Here's the link if anyone else wants it: http:...

Good quiz ... I knew I should have paid more attention to the Always On My Mind video.

Perhaps I should watch It Couldn't Happen Here as penance.

Re: Happy Birthday, Very/Very Relentless

I was studying graphic design at college in Leicester, and went into MG Discs to ask for Very Relentless. "Sorry they're all reserved" I was told (I seem to remember shops could only order 1 Very Relentless for every 10 Very ordered). Cue a panicked call to Pendulum Records in Melton Mowbray who sav...
