  2. What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Must admit, I'm torn on the Radiator reissue. I love them, but they are in danger of becoming their own tribute band. I bought the Fuzzy Logic reissue as that had some stuff I hadn't heard. But I'll wait on the Radiator reissue to see exactly what it is. I just selfishly crave new stuff. I know my one mate will utterly lose his shit over any new slant or tweek to She's Got Spies, he plays it every time he's pre match dj at the footy. Pre match dj might just sound a little more grand than it is...it's the first 5 of us in getting the key to the cd player / p.a. system.
  3. What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

    car CD selection: Love them to bits, probably seen them more than any other band (Alabama 3 will over take them soon on that score...). Ice Hockey Hair might just be my all time fave tune, it would be my rescued desert island disc.
  4. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    Yeah, I know how nature works, but it isn't 'natural' is it, it's pets people have chosen to have. People choose to have cats, cats kill the birds and the frogs and the slow worms. But that's inconvenient to contemplate, so it's nature, innit. Forever clearing dead wildlife from my garden.
  5. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    my neighbour has a couple of cats the cats destroy everything, they piss on plants, they stink up everything, they kill all the wildlife they can find cats are vile

  8. The Great Tower Block Fire of London

    I know nothing about these works and thankfully, I've never been involved in domestic residential high rise. But in vaguely related works for vaguely similar clients, it's the inspection regime where money can be saved. Yes, somebody somewhere will have had the job of inspecting. I would suspect a scenario whereby in the 'good old days' a senior inspector would have taken as long as it takes to inspect properly and send in a substantial invoice. More recently, they will have been told £90 per hour and taking a month is too much. The revised rate is now £65 per hour and you've got a week. So the job can't afford a senior inspector. So they have the junior inspector. With less time to inspect. When that happened to the company I was then working for, they had the good sense to say. 'thanks, but no thanks'.
  9. The Great Tower Block Fire of London

    I was listening to something on the radio, didn't catch the start of it. But they were looking at other similar blocks and the reaction of the fire inspectors was essentially '**** me I can't believe what I'm seeing'. They were outside on a balcony next to the (now known to be) flammable insulation and could see in where gas pipes were passing through what had been fire barrier but had been replaced with thin plywood. There was an obvious element of drama and urgency being created. But again, how does a council then say, well there's no real rush here. it took over 20 minutes for Grenfell to start killing people.

    My missus called me in to the room to watch his set with the recommendation 'you'll like this, he sounds like those Cash CD's you've got from just before he died'. I would have to say though, of what I watched yesterday, I thought Royal Blood put on a very good show. Possibly the loosest bass guitar strings I've ever seen.
  11. The Great Tower Block Fire of London

    To take the alternative view on Camden's plan...can you imagine the reaction if one person in one block was to die in a vaguely relatable incident when a council knew there was a risk and had a week or two to do something about it. I wouldn't want to be that spokes fall guy: 'yeah we'd watched the news but didn't want to over react to 79 deaths'.
  12. What Song Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Voices of East Harlem sing 'right on be free' at Sing Sing Max Security Prison...
