The series four soundtrack CD is exceptional. The Torchwood soundtrack isn't exactly rubbish either.

Is there a Torchwood one? Didn't know that.

I'm currently listening to a lot of New Order. Brilliant band.

Yep, there is indeed a Torchwood one. I'm not listening to much of anything at the moment. Too busy getting those damned four series of avi files over onto my player.

still need to get around to listening thru the whole Torchwood cd -- affraid (cool emoticons here)

The s4 DW cd is fantastic -- I was impressed how well it worked as a whole - very cohesive, mure like parts to a big work rather than just a bunch of tracks.

Konstantin, I was playing it to my Year 4 class yesterday to inspire them for art. They listened, eyes closed, free drawing in their sketch books... suffice to say they absolutely loved it!

Just like to say thanks to all those that organised the Barry Gray Centenary concert over the weekend. Despite some ragged performances, it was still pretty darn awesome to hear a full orchestra giving it large on the Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and Doppleganger music. A very good evening was had by all.

Sounds like something I would have very much enjoyed attending. I once wrote a bio piece on the extraordinarily talented Mr Gray for Television Heaven, so I'm even more miffed I missed it now. Sad

It was grand Sid. I had tears in my eyes as huge swathes of my childhood unfolded before me. It was under-rehearsed and they botch a number of suites up but it was still highly enjoyable. And as Tony quite rightly said, they don't have the resources that the BBC have. This was a fan initiated event so it's all the more impressive for that.

Damn! I'm even more envious now. A full orchestral suit of Gray's greatest works would be a must have CD/Set of, for me. The man did as much as anyone to define my televisual childhood - perhaps more than most.

Very well put about the Barry Gray Gig Frank. My faves were probably Joe 90, Thunderbirds Are Go and Captain Scarlet. And, of course, that bloke who dashed up and asked me if it was at Fanderson 81!! Very Happy

I didn't Gray and I so wish I had.

MGMT: It was OK. Certainly not what I expected. I saw them having a glam/prog rock androgyny and that's rather appealing to me but last night was basically a bunch of stoned hippies doing very looooooonnnnnnnggggggggggg guitar solos and falling about ineptly. Boring. In fact they were so stoned that their playing deteriorated to the point where they didn't know what the hell they were doing at the end. Very shambolic. And 'rock cliche' alert, the lead singer decided he'd take his frustrations out on the mike stand and thrashed it repeatedly against the stage at one point. Yawn.

I also felt very, very old. The average age of the audience was about 12.

Sad

Me too, on both counts. But, after seeing Lambchop twice in London only a few days earlier, I had to choose between seeing Fleet Foxes and Okkervil River (both in Manchester at pretty much the same time) and, as much as I love that Fleet Foxes album, it was only ever going to be Okkervil River. And they were godlike. It's entirely possible they may be my favourite band in the whole wide rest-of-the-world (BSP having domestic honours, naturally).

I'm back in Manchester next week to see Low, and then again twice next month (for The Wedding Present and, and I'm hugely excited by this in an historical post-rock kind of way, iLiKETRAiNS).

[L]ast night was basically a bunch of stoned hippies doing very looooooonnnnnnnggggggggggg guitar solos and falling about ineptly. Boring. In fact they were so stoned that their playing deteriorated to the point where they didn't know what the hell they were doing at the end. Very shambolic...

Sounds very much like the first time I saw Primal Scream...

I also felt very, very old. The average age of the audience was about 12.

This is the great advantage of going to see bands like, say, American Music Club - kids are the exception and the middle-aged fit right in!

My flatmate went to the Fleet-foxes and said it was the best gig since turning 18 (6 years). I didn't go and therefore don't believe him. I went to see Neon Neon who played their only four decent songs in a row at the beginning. They were supported by lesbian black New Yorkers trying to get a very english audience to f*** that s***. I was in a cardigan and drinking guinness. It was surreal.

My copy of the new iLiKETRAiNS (or is it now I Like Trains*?) EP, 'The Christmas Tree Ship', was waiting for me on my return home from work today and, between the CD and DVD versions of the piece contained within the cardboard sleeve, I must have listened to it about ten times already.

A recommended listen for anyone who fancies a lovely bit of festive instrumentalism. Just fab...

Tony and I are both on there. So are some of the other milkbarians. You prob wouldn't find my current playlist very interesting though - I've got Harry Connick's Carol of the bells on repeat non-stop. It's so christmassy. Sadly it doesn't seem to be on you tube (vocal or straight versions don't do it for me - jazz piano or nothing, I say). Sad I'm sheringham on there too.
