  1. Not me - I only rely on you, and I wouldn't want it any other way. Ta.
  2. Ha! I am a bit of a history buff so know all about Operation Torch etc. Maybe it isn't a rifle just a shadow of something on the ground. Still looks a bit strange to me. For once a decent album cover ( ).
  3. Yes. Got it thanks. Thought of you yesterday when I heard that the last episode of Doc Martin has been recorded You have my condolences.
  4. Soul America - 3 x 1 hour BBC music doc. Seen 1 (origins and pop - to Motown/Stax) & 2 (civil rights and 70s). Will probably not bother with episode 3 when it gets all "Mr Lover Man". A collage that only skims the surface but always nice to see some good clips and hear some stories from those that were there and odd moments - like the keyboards player from I Never Loved A Man The Way That I Love You talking about coming up with the riff. Also, Mavis is one of the talking heads. Never heard of Wattstax before, so that's something. In other news, Up to series 8 of my rewind of the entire Spooks oeuvre (a few episodes a week since BBC put them all up on iPlayer as a Lockdown balm). Glad to hear that What We Do In The Shadows has fellow admirers. There is the original film too in case you didn't know. And Matt Berry fans really should check out Toast of London. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t97eE2fst4A
  5. Anyone know anything about the cover photo? Looks like WW2 (Tunisia?) or possibly Korea? The rifle looks strange - photoshopped as dropped from the hand?
  6. The "English" Beat Only the one The Beat for me
  7. https://twitter.com/JohnRMulvey/status/1301161983220297728?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Etweet Slow Rhodes version of Summerteeth
  8. Apparently:- https://www.bullmoose.com/p/34717563/wilco-summerteeth-deluxe-edition Although the website is not responding to me at the moment
  9. Pete Ham doc if you want to know more about Badfinger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=257fyj73hkI
  10. If that's an obtuse way of saying that the second album is not so good then unfortunately I'd have to agree with you. Title track is great, the rest lacks the brash spark of the debut. Meanwhile, back on topic, I don't watch the Tweedy Show live because of the time difference, and finding time to catch up on YouTube is difficult (so I've maybe seen 10?), but I read the summaries avidly (thank you) looking out for gems - which Let Me Come Home certainly was. Always been a favourite, and would be great to see it performed more often by TWEEDY or JT solo whenever the curse of covid lifts.
  11. Enjoy. Their second album is out now but I haven't heard it yet. Fingers crossed they can keep up the good work. They have a fidgety, awkward lead singer who I find hypnotic in an Ian Curtis kind of way, with the unpretentious dress style of fellow Irishmen The Undertones, which is always a good thing. P.S. Long time no see.
  12. Once Upon A Time in Iraq Wow, just wow. I can't remember being gripped by a documentary series as much. Talking heads supported by footage, but what talking heads. A group of ordinary (or extra-ordinary as was often revealed) civilians or other individuals (journalists & military on the ground) in key positions (and I mean of insightful circumstance not political leadership etc.) telling their stories and offering a glimpse into what unfolded. Binge-watched in 2 sittings and the first night had a dream about driving a car down a Baghdad street trying to avoid dead bodies so it obviously had a strong effect on me. Also DEVS - with that friend of JT from Parks & Recreation (which I have never seen and I did not realise it was him - big beard here - until I saw his name in the credits by accident). Took an episode or two to get into, and you had to suspend some disbelief in the basic premise as with a lot of sci-fi, but great, great atmosphere (shots and music) and style, with a nice slow pace (that I like) as things unfolded with several twists. What We Do In The Shadows (series 2) Matt Berry still tickles my fancy.
  13. Add me to the band of outcasts. Whilst I understand that JT can only write what he feels as affected by personal circumstances in the last few years and there have been some gems, what I most liked about Wilco was the fact that every album was so distinctively different in style. The last few Wilco/solo albums have been stuck in a bit of a whispery Dirge Rock (see what I did there?) vein and I have been itching for some energy. Everyone is getting on (me too) so raw youthful power might not be the easiest thing to tap into naturally anymore, but I feel I need something to lift me up and throw me around the room in these times and am hoping that Wilco can still provide it. If not I've still got Fontaines D.C.'s first album that has kept be bouncing for the last few months.
