Test.
If you like though, tell us all about your favourite bands.

And don't just list the fuckers, convince us of their worth and make us want to buy all their albums.


But do it nice and slowly and gently for now, alright?

Ah, Silver SurferGhost, you sound just like a father advising punters on usage of his newly prozzied-up daughter. It brings a tear to my eye... And hers.

Well, I've started early this evening.

Not sure really, i'm quite partial to a bit of silence.

Followed by a walk through the park, then a scone and a cup of tea.

I had a job interview yesterday, and on the way to and from I was wired into tiny portable music bringing me the new expanded deluxe edition of Dragnet by The Fall.

Oh, how I held my head high, I was like a God.

Music is great. It's the most popular thing in the world. Find me one person who doesn't like music of any kind, I dare you. If you do, kill the joyless fucker immediately. I'm not joking.

My parents don't listen to music. I can't quite understand that. It's one of my favourite things to enjoy.

There's a Pink Floyd webzine called Spare Bricks which I've been enjoying for a while now and an archived page of Gilmour, Guitars & Gear - a very useful set of old articles on Pink Floyd Guitarist David Gilmour's guitars and playing technique, with helpful mentions of his effects and amps.

Thanks for those!  Although I'd never bothered to look closely at which Strats DG liked to use, I too was like the unnamed boyfriend in the piece who was under the impression that *all* CBS Strats were shit.  Mind you I did know that the shitness started in about 1973, but I assumed that *that* was when CBS bought Fender, not eight years earlier.

Will read more of this stuff later.

Music is everything.  Right now I am playing the new Air CD which is just perfect chill-out at 10 past midnight on a Saturday night.  Music remains the most powerful influence on my moods.  Before my GCSE's way back in 1988 I used to play Marillion - Garden Party right before leaving the house.  It used to give me a real buzz and as I lived within 5 minutes of my High School I would still have the buzz when I got into the exam hall.  Beats being drugged up.

For me there are certain groups or albums which may be universally panned but for me they just hit the right note - I still buy every Marillion release and see them live - This Strange Engine and Cathedral Walls send a shiver down my spine whenever I play them.  I fully accept that one man's music is another man's boghole (and woman's of course)... that's why I reserve the right to fucking detest Simply Red.

If I am really down and I want to stay that way I can play Please Let me get what I want [The Smiths]or Everything's Ruined [Faith No More].  If I need to get out of that mood, God show me magic! [Super Furry Animals] or Jackass [Beck]can immediately lift the cloud.

The fact that I have spent money on buying over a thousand CDs during the past 19 years seems to freak some people out. However, for me it is as important as food, or maybe Beer.

Or chocolate.
