  1. Hey Jim

    Cant seem to send you PMs

    Hope all is well

  2. The Loch Ness Monster is real alright. Our tourist industry depends on it.
  3. Planning the weekend trip to a remote mountain hut over coffee and biscuits.
  4. Come on Jethro, we want to see now, we were all hairy in the 70's.............I did it
  5. Just finished this Ploughing my way through this.
  6. Well have been posting here for 5 years on and off and swore I would never do this but as uploading pictures for family thought why not. Old Geezer.........spent two nights in this mouse infested bothy in the middle of nowhere Action man in the Cairngorms Stunning surroundings and a Northern Monkey
  7. The Fall are Great, Hex Induction hour is not one of their great albums, Same with Nick Cave, Tender prey is not Nick at his best. Now then, Trout Mask Replica..............have owned it for about 30 years, even replaced it on CD. No matter how stoned or drunk I have been, have never made it all the way through, maybe a retirement project. Bloody critics.
  8. Miss Honeydripper If you buy a compilation (there are lots) make sure it has Fanfare for the common man (full version) and Pirates, because it sure as hell is not worth buying Works for anaything else. Otherwise Brain Salad Surgery, Tarkus or Trilogy..............in that order. The live one would be a good place to start as it contains all of Tarkus and Karn Evil 9 and some serious wigging out in Aquatarkus. ELP live
  9. Saw them on Heavy Horses and Stormwatch tours.......fantastic, Barriemore Barlow was amazing. Now here is my Jethro Tull story. Way back in the 80's before becoming a Scientist, I used to manage a large dairy farm in Buckinghamshire and agriculturally speaking Ian Anderson was our next door neighbour (Beacons Bottom, Radnage). We shared the same farm vet who once mentioned to IA that he had an antique dulcimer on which IA asked him if he could have a look at it. To cut a long story short he had it restored and used it on the Heavy Horses album. As a thank you he then presented the Vet with the first vinyl pressing of the HH album catalogue number 0001............nice! I once had to phone him and ask him to move his damn bullocks from our wheat................cant do that at the moment the chaps are far too busy.................bad farming etiquette, still he is a musical genious so forgave him and moved the damn things myself
  10. What he said, I thought it must have been overdubbed to hell until I got some of the bootleg series and realised they really were that good live.
  11. I'm afraid I am one of those (saw them on stormwatch tour), but have recently bought some of the later stuff, love the song Mountain men (cant remeber which album), just dont think they were (are) as consistant in the later years. But the Evan, Barlow, Palmer, Barre, Glascock et al band did display a certain amount of genius that I feel was never repeated.
  12. Gotta love that cover, 70's prog was great. Anyone remember Greenslade.
  13. It was in the film lock, stock and two smoking barrels, I was working in Reading at the time and I still have a northern accent so my mates started calling me it. Not applicable up here in the highlands though..........as being from Lancashire I would be a soft southern shandy drinking pansy...........which I'm not.
