  3. Yesterday
  4. Noo album news. NME Live: Weezer’s new album ‘Pacific Daydream’ is coming this year.
  5. Running is cruel. Knocked a 5k out of the park on Saturday and had to tap out after a measly 1k today. Don't know what I did wrong.

  6. Resignation handed in to job I hate so I can start a masters.

  8. Watching Eugene and Duglas trying to hit those Fleetwood Mac harmonies will be entertaining if nothing else... Sorry - no matter who's doing it it's just another tribute act for me. McFleetwood played Newmachar in July, I wasn't interested in that either.
  9. Just as an update to this, the lineup for Rumours at HMT was announced yesterday and I mistakenly thought this was a one-band event, playing the record from start to finish. It's actually a heap of bands, presumably doing one or two songs each, collaborations etc, and includes the record plus a 'best of' set - all paying tribute to Fleetwood Mac. Which sounds pretty decent to me. Lineup is: Eugene Kelly (The Vaselines), Emma Pollock, Martha Ffion, Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), Be Charlotte, Alice Marra (The Hazey Janes), Duglas T. Stewart (BMX Bandits), Sam West, Sinderins
  10. 'Take me to your leader,' he said making first contact with cub scouts. Akela liked the strange new harmonies during Gin Gan Gooly. #thepush

  11. I'm not going to read through this thread again but I remember voraciously supporting Trump and his golf course (and arguing with lepeep, who I still think is a cunt). Yeah I backed the wrong horse here.
  12. Great thread title.
  13. Cannot wait to get home from Berlin and play Just Cause and Slotty Vegas.

  16. Nice try, LibertyX.
  17. I'm into casino themed stuff lately. Like it's actually very refreshing after all war games and cars
  18. @mattyshoestring @dccommonsense The important thing is what they think they suffer from. You can talk about reality…

  22. He's extremely nasty, and very fortunate to have only received three red cards throughout his career, I'd say. There were countless instances of him treating on opponents, throwing elbows, or firing into unnecessarily dangerous challenges last season, many of which drew only a yellow card, or nothing at all. I found Championship referees to be awful, and they let players away with a lot of dangerous shit. His yellow card/minute ratio is on-par with Dennis Wise and David Batty, and worse than Roy Keane. A shame, as this is the one major factor preventing him from making it at a bigger club.
  23. I'll say.
  24. Is he particularly violent overall? It was a definite red, but it was one of those reds that absolutely wasn't worth it. He just stood on his foot. Probably didn't even leave a scratch on him. Alli hammed it up, as you would. If you're going to see red for sticking one on a prickly little gobshite (and Dele Alli absolutely is a prickly little gobshite who gets away with lots of sly acts of nastiness and is overdue being on the receiving end of a whopper of a late challenge) at least give him a good wallop. Start throwing punches, headbutts and squaring up to the whole team, like Joey Barton would. The little I've seen of Shelvey, he just seems like an idiot. Not particularly nasty. Just brainless. He has bags of talent, but doesn't seem capable of connecting that talent to his head.
  25. Jess Klein + Mike June Thursday 5th October 2017 Upstairs@The Blue Lamp, 121 Gallowgate, Aberdeen, AB25 1BU Phone: 01224 647472 Doors 7.30pm Tickets £10x+bf in adv / £12 on door available from JESS Klein A welcome return to Aberdeen for Jess Klein Over a career that spans more than a decade and a half and has won her a devoted worldwide fan base, Klein—who possesses what Mojo magazine calls “one of those voices you want to crawl up close to the speakers to listen to” and a knack for writing songs that the Cape Cod Times has described as “fully realized, finely observed and deeply felt”—has pursued a remarkable creative evolution that’s seen her dig ever deeper for resonant emotional insights, while continuing to refine her eloquently melodic, effortlessly accessible songcraft. As the New York Times noted, Klein is an artist who “has country roots, but who pushes her songs toward philosophical thoughts.” Mike June Mike tours constantly and with typical self-deprecating humor describes himself as a " like a door-to-door song salesman” His songs contain hard hitting social commentary drawing on his experiences as a working-class American as well as his battles with addiction, depression and heartbreak.
  26. Thomas Truax + Barrett’s Dottled Beauty Sunday 15th October 2017 The Blue Lamp, 121 Gallowgate, Aberdeen, AB25 1BU Phone: 01224 647472 Doors 7.30pm Tickets £8+bf in advance / £10 on door Available from Thomas Truax We are reclaiming Thomas for his Blue Lamp debut. If you haven’t seen Thomas you haven’t seen anything like it. Thomas Truax (pronounced troo-aks) is an American singer/musician, inventor and multi-media artist. One of the most imaginative characters on the pop music fringe, since the year 2000 Thomas has been traveling the world performing with his evolving “band” of bizarre self-made Harry Partch-esque instruments including a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called ‘Mother Superior’ and a pimped-up Dr. Seuss-ian Gramophone called ‘The Hornicator’, as well as his venerable resonator guitar ‘Hank’. Time Out magazine has dubbed him “The king of home-made instruments” while Splendid magazine called him “one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you’ve never heard of…an exceptional talent, unique and resistant to comparison, yet fairly accessible even to casual listeners.” Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with things lunar, including various reasons ‘Why Dogs Howl at The Moon’. Notable supporters and collaborators include Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, Richard Hawley, Amanda Palmer, and the late author Terry Pratchett. Brian Viglione (of the Dresden Dolls/Violent Femmes) plays drums on Thomas’s latest studio album ‘Jetstream Sunset’. A stubborn DIY enthusiast, he self-released his debut full-length solo CD ‘Full Moon Over Wowtown’ on his own Psychoteddy label in 2002. It was later snatched up by London-based Breakin’ Beats for release in the UK and Europe. Numerous singles, compilations and seven other albums have followed on various labels including SL Records, Homesleep and Blang. Among these releases are an original score for a major German stage production of ‘Peer Gynt’ (by award-winning director Kay Voges), and – inspired by a meeting with director David Lynch – a highly-rated covers album ‘Songs From The Films Of David Lynch’. Barrett’s Dottled Beauty Semi-improvised psychedelic folk from Gayle Brogan of Electroscope / Pefkin and Alan Davidson of the Kitchen Cynics.
  27. SioBhan Wilson + FAIR MOTHERS Friday 8th September 2017 Upstairs at The Blue Lamp, 121 Gallowgate, Aberdeen, AB25 1BU Phone: 01224 647472 Doors 7.30pm Tickets £10+bf Available from or phone 01224641122 SIOBHAN WILSON Siobhan was born in Elgin, but recorded and released in Paris before returning to Scotland a few years ago. Her debut album There Are No Saints was released on 14th July 2017 on Song, By Toad Records and this is what they said about her: “We first met her, playing solo at the Electric Circus in Edinburgh. It was incredible, and we immediately invited her to record for our next Split 12”. In the main drawing room of Inshriach House at the Insider Festival in 2013 we recorded 'Dear God' for Split 12” Vol.3, which was featured as Lauren Laverne’s ‘headphones moment’, has gone on to clock up 10,000 Soundcloud plays. After the release of the Split 12” Siobhan went on to release 'Say It’s True' on Reveal, before a chance encounter at a Modern Studies gig before Christmas led to us discussing her new album - a beautiful, minimal record which she was making with Chris McCrory of Catholic Action. Generally I make sure to listen to things through several times and properly think things over before offering to release a record, but on this one I was about halfway through the first song and I knew we’d want to put it out. By turns still and pretty, and with an undercurrent of nastiness which rears its head every once in a while, to my ears this is just a stunningly beautiful album. and one I am delighted to have associated with the label.” “Mesmerising… a hugely exciting talent” 5 stars - The Scotsman “Dear God had us hang on every syllable” 4 stars - The Herald “One of the most remarkable singers in Scotland… a stunning performance” Daily Record FAIR MOTHERS Fair Mothers is Aberdeen based Kevin Allan who creates some of the finest lo-fi, indie folk to emerge from the north east of Scotland Debut album 'Through Them Fingers Yours and Mine' is available on Fox Food Records.
  28. I like Jonjo Shelvey a lot, but he's a total dipshit. I'd probably like him a lot more if he played for a different club, though. I'm naturally drawn to flawed players who regularly mix the sublime with the ridiculous because they're always great entertainment, but it his hair trigger is a major problem, particularly when it costs us games. Not saying we'd have defeated Spurs had he stayed on the pitch, of course, but the red definitely changed the course of the match. The trouble now is figuring out what to do with him. He was made captain at the start of the season because Jamaal Lascelles isn't very good, but there's no way he should retain the armband. We can't just drop him, though. With Shelvey, the good outweighs the bad. Yes, he's a violent moron, but he's also our best player. We looked extremely average without him last season, and while taking some kind of idealistic stand and discarding him sounds great, we must be pragmatic. We're going to struggle enough as it is and I don't think we can win the fight without our most creative player. Ideally, Mikel Merino will come into the team, play an absolute blinder, and we won't need to put Shelvey back into the XI. I'd like to see Rafa play a Merino/Hayden combo with Siem de Jong in the #10, but given that Siem wasn't even on the bench yesterday, I guess Benitez doesn't trust his fitness. Who knows, though? Yesterday was a pile of shite either way. Harry Kane and Matt Ritchie should've both seen red. Lejeune and Dummett both got injured. Mike Ashley gave a vanity interview on Sky Sports, and it doesn't sound like we're gonna spend. We're in deep shit already.
