If you are into them, then there's a really good documentary on Sky Arts.

One of the best opening lines in a song - Libraries Gave Us Power...

Great to hear Nicky talking about how Damon did the 'Carry On The Buses' skit for Park Life.

He was seething at the little posh boy.

Get it watched.

My old man got, and still gets quite emotional about that line. 100% true. Changed his life, gave him a window to a world that was closed to the likes of him.
Cheers for the heads up

Everything Must Go was flawless. A cut above the rest in the mid nineties.

Bollocks. Missed it.

Yep another great band. I love what they still stand for, which seems to be reversing by our current lovely government.

I was blown away by them this year as I hadn’t seen them live for 20 plus years

I am just a common breed

Never seen them. I like some of the singles. Tempted to go see them a few years back when they toured here. P!saying the Holy Bible album. I listened to it, it was terrible. Still never seen them. Still like some of the singles. The MASH cover, Motorcycle, Tolerate, that stuff is fantastic.
