I wasn't that fussed on the last Idles record. But that song was decent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31am Brian D:

I really liked about half of Ultra Mono.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31am Brian D:

I love their whole ethos.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:34am Paulo AD:

Yeah they are great in that way. My mate is obbsessed with them, he went travelling around the uk to watch them for a few weeks
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:39am fred:

Big Blood are so great. The only thing I don't like about them is that they don't tour
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Brian D:

Can't blame them for not wanting to leave Maine.

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:03am Paulo AD:

my favourite Bowie album :)
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:03am Paulo AD:

Hiya Jack, hows it going old bean ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03am Brian D:

Jack! My favorite Bowie album changes weekly, Paulo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05am Brian D:

But Station to Station is always up there.
Avatar 🗒 5:07am Hoboken Jack:

Paulo, I'm excited for our first big street festival in Hoboken since the pandemic began, later today. Includes the Smithereens with guest vocalist Marshall Crenshaw. How are you??
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:08am Paulo AD:

I absolutely adore Bowie. I have him tattood on my chest, managed to see him live three times too. Glasto 2000 was undoubtably the best
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:09am Paulo AD:

Jack that sounds awesome, very jealous :) Apart from my stinking hangover I'm ok thanks man. Just waiting for the cyclone to hit the city
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12am Brian D:

WAs hoping to make it to said street fest today, @Jack. Haven't seen the Smithereens since Pat's passing.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:12am Paulo AD:

I'm hoping to get to NY/NJ next year and it would be great to have a meetup and some beers
Avatar 5:14am Heidee:

Hiya Hoboken Jack! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I love the vibes of street festivals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14am Gnomon But Make It Spooky:

oh did I hear a call for book recommendations? If you like crime novels, Brian D, you might check out Jar City by Arnaldur Indriรฐason. It's an icelandic murder mystery that could only happen in Iceland because of the weird genetics there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15am Brian D:

Thanks @Gnomon! Will do so. Missus and I loved "Trapped," an Icelandic crime TV program.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:15am fred:

@Paulo: If the cyclone brings heavy rain, your Welsh heritage will get its moment to shine bright
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:16am Paulo AD:

Fred I know right, I'm going to revel in it haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17am Scott67:

G'day Jack, sorry to leave ya hangin man. Wason the phone with Mum.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17am Gnomon But Make It Spooky:

I saw ads for that one, but never checked it out. I'm on a kick of studying some related things right now. In non-fiction, if you want a really good history of the Vikings that blows away stereotypes, I'm reading Children of Ash and Elm by Neil Price and love it.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:18am Paulo AD:

I'm reading brighton rock at the moment. Going to dive back into Lovecraft for spooky season too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am Scott67:

G'day Fred & Gnomon.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž
Avatar 5:20am Heidee:

I loved "Trapped", and "Fortitude".
@all, Please post more TV recommendations

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20am Gnomon But Make It Spooky:

heya Scott67. Hope things are going well for you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20am Brian D:

Graham Greene! My knowledge of the Vikings stops at Hagar the Horrible, @Gnomon, so I might check that out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21am Brian D:

@Heidee, watching Italian cop show Non Uccidere now. Very good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21am Gnomon But Make It Spooky:

@Heidee I never watched Fortitude but I listened to the soundtrack on loop during some very intense times so I already have feelings about it.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:23am fred:

I won a drawing contest with a viking ship many years ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25am Scott67:

What did the Viking Ship draw Fred?
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:39am Paulo AD:

We're watching squid game at the moment, it's pretty good
Avatar 5:39am Heidee:

Thanks @Brian and Paulo, will def look out for it.
@Gnomon, nothing beats a good soundtrack, esp for those kinds of films. ๐Ÿ‘ I like using my audio-cinematic finds in my theatre productions, and people are always wondering where the hell I had gotten my stage sounds from.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...prefer this Viking din to even Vicodin.
Left FMU on all night & my trust being rewarded I reckon.
