    How does this Last FM work then that some of you have? Is that involve another long and tedious (grrr) registering process?

    I have been listening to the Levellers' Truth and Lies album and some tracks from the new album, Audioporn's You Turn Me On, Richard Ashcroft's last offering and Roy's HQ.

    Travellerman Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Audioporn! yay.... I saw Adrien support Roy at the 100 Club and was impressed by his stage presence and songs. Anyway, one thing led to another and now I travel with his solo album and Audioporns latest, he is also friends with Sharon (Pooka) 6 degrees of separation etc...

    Nice chap and quite talented.

    :D

    i think it takes about 15 seconds to register but you do have to set up your music player to submit the tracks to the site, which is made fairly painless, you shouldnt have too much trouble. I like last FM, its a bit nerdy though. Our leader pd is currently at the top of my list of people with similar listening habits.

    Anyone get into this on normal radio [not thru' PC]?
    Found it quite sentimentally attractive but can be repetitive...

    I think "digital" is the clue. You can get it on a DAB radio in my area and I do dip in from time to time but as you say, it can be repetitive. Whenever I've listened (Usually Alice Cooper on Sunday mornings) I can last for about four or five songs until AC/DC come on and it's quickly back to Radio Three, Four or Five.

Also The Groundhogs - Split, Black Diamond, and Marianne Faithfull - Broken English, and intertwined with some quality reggae Linton Kwesi Johnson - Dread Beat & Blood...Windows media player is a wonderful invention I can play my tunes while trawling the net - happy days!!

    You wanna get some Twang in your setlist! They are touring in a matter of weeks - that's when I know I'll really get back into my gigging groove!

    You catching Nick on this tour, Shaun?

    (PS nice sweater!!!)

    Yeah I'm really hoping to Linn, not a big twang fan..though I do have broad tastes in music (some would call my taste eclectic) I've listened to them and several other "new" bands The Fray, Muse and others recommended by friends but they just dont do it for me. I'm not a member of Nicks site yet so perhaps you could send me some gig dates - thanks

    Regards

    This week I have been mostly listening to the John Martyn BBC sessions set, Tangerine Dream, King Crimson, Elbow, and I am Kloot. Oh, and Roy's "Green Man" for reasons which will become evident when the podcast gets finished!

    Breathe...breathe in the air

    That's what I've just been listening to on the BBC4 doc on Floyd's DSOTM. Now am just frittering and wasting the hours in an offhand way instead of working on my next interviews (Levs & Panate), putting together an int/v Nick has done (more in the Press forum), arranging all the press and sorting out enquiries for the tour...etc etc...so I'll see you on the dark side of the moon (perhaps).

    Bob Jacobs Ride away in style

    Mr Bill's Wild Ride #33: Jesus, Mary & Jane, featuring lots of interesting stuff. Best track on "Jesus" is "Jesus Left Chicago" by ZZ Top, from the classic green album, Tres Hombres. There are loads of classics on "Mary" such as "The Wind Cries Mary" by Jimi, "Thoughts of Mary Jane" by Nick Drake and "Crazy Mary" by Victoria Williams (I thought it was Rickie Lee Jones when I heard it). "Jane" has Roy's "Zaney Janey", Dylan's "Queen Jane Approximately", The Stones' "Lady Jane" and Nick Drake's "Hazey Jane II" in a great sequence. It finisghes with the gorgeous version of "Sweet Jane" by Cowboy Junkies.

    Nicks gigs

    Thanks Paul and Linn, I have checked out both sites and I'm looking at either going to Manchester or St Helens, living in Preston I'm only half an hour or so away. One more thing..what would be the best route to secure tickets, through the venue direct or an alternate method?

    Regards

    Neutral Milk Hotel, "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea".

    I'd been hearing such good things about this album, lauded by some so highly I felt I should take the plunge, figuratively speaking. I need to listen to it in its entirety before judging. There are moments of madness and I can hear the hint of brilliance itching to shine through...

    One Amazon review: "Neutral Milk Hotel is one of those bands that will steal your heart, or send you howling from the room. There's no middle ground. It's an acid-tinged dream of spirituality, sex, chaos, rebirth and beauty, full of girls with roses in their eyes and ghosts flying over stormy cities."
