I recently got my hands on Piglet's Lava Land - without question the best instrumental release I've picked up for years. Absolute bliss.

Kiki Dee appeared on TV's Never Mind The Buzzcocks alongside British comedian Bill Bailey. Bill Bailey was in Black Books with Dylan Moran and Simon Pegg, who were both in the film Shaun Of The Dead, the soundtrack of which featured The Specials' Ghost Town.

The Specials.

"You Really Got Me" was The Kinks, wasn't it?

And I vote "other" - the best riff ever is the intro to Jarcrew's Destructor/Creator. Disagree? Then here's your complimentary bag of incorrect.

An album can become classic the day of its release, there's not really a timescale for this sort of thing.

I knew a guy back in the 70's who had about 10,000 LP's :shock: He didn't have much furniture, but he did have one hell of a sound system :twisted:
Oh wow, I didn't know you and John Peel were buddies.

Sadly, vinyl's all up in the attic these days - so much more convenient to burn a few of your fave songs to CD and play it throught the stereo, you can't use a remote on a vinyl LP...... That's a good point, but with albums that I have on both vinyl and CD, I tend to hear things on the vinyl that I...

I think this is largely an American thing, because in my countless trips to pubs and clubs all over the UK, whether the intention is to see a band or grab a coke before seeing a band, and I have never, ever, ever seen a kareoke machine or anyone using it. The reason kareoke will never kill live musi...

The ultimate question...

CD or vinyl? Quite a simple question, but one that tends to divide the music community in half. Many see vinyl a genuinely superior format, others see it as an outdated, inferior predecessor to the compact disc. So I ask you - CDs or vinyl? Personally, I prefer vinyl - while CDs are infinitely more ...

Hmm, Ryan Adams is probably the most famous of all of those. If you get the chance though, try and catch some of those bands, they've all been ridiculously influential in their own way.

Gibson basses can be somewhat hit and miss - the SG models are usually very, very easy to maneuvre but the Ripper models can be more trouble than they're worth. Test it out, see how it feels, and if it's a glued neck then check for cracks at the joint, a common complaint in Gibson basses.

We're currently in the process of booting out the drummer from our band, because he wasn't into it as much as we were (me and the guitarist). Being in bands is awesome.

Thus concludes my six-monthy visit to GuitarNoise. See y'all in July!
