    He was indeed - he played Nordberg.

    I bloody love those films.

    Vincent Ludwig: Inspector Drebin, welcome.
    Frank Drebin: The feeling is mutual.
    Vincent Ludwig: Nice to meet you too [He offers Drebin some cigars] Cuban?
    Frank Drebin: Err, no, Dutch-Irish, my father was from Wales.

    Langdale, I'm assuming you got your Elbow tickets via a pre-sale?
    Can I ask how much they are? General sale is tomorrow, & I need to be planning a purchase...

    Hi, are there any young Wolves based lads/lasses on here?

    Only asking cos' my nieces lad---is that my great nephew?---is in a local band called Bad Apes who seem to be making some waves and are currently branching out with gigs around the West Midlands.

    Until recently they'd mostly been playing the Varsity,have'nt been able to see them yet and was wondering if anyone on here had?

    Got me 3 tickets. Fee was a little higher with the ticket factory (3.25) but a fairly problem free booking!

    Yay!

    I saw Metallica for 6 on the puppets tour. It was only 9.50 on the Justice Tour but the Black album ticket prices had shot up to nearly 20. As that was 1991 then 27.50 isn't too bad at all today for a big band like Elbow.

    A warning to everyone:

    It's Glastonbury ticket today and as a result, I'm a miserable bastard because I'm not going next year.

    If anyone brags about getting a ticket on here, it's an instant infraction. Got that? Good.

    Glastonbury is shit anyway. Full of hippies and it'll probably rain.

    Apparently it's a nightmare to get tickets at the moment..........

    I wouldn't know though.

    Infraction for SSB. Reason: being a git.

    A moment of musical brilliance from the under-rated genius that is Pete Murphy, without whom many of the bands we know and love today almost certainly wouldn't exist:

    It was my birthday recently, so I've been given some stuff:

    James - the morning after (new mini album) one quick listen, sounds ok, but a little downbeat. I love James though.
    Mika - life in cartoon motion, after seeing him live, I have a lot of respect for him.
    Underworld - Barking, a phenomenal album!

    Slightly OT for the thread, I also got American The Bill Hicks story on dvd. Great to see at the cinema, it has a load of extras I'm excited about.
    There was also a Bill Hicks essential collection released - 2xcd's & 2xdvd's which I can't wait to devour!

    Just got through that, and Im left wondering where the musical brilliance is? Its not bad by all means, but its just some guitar delay with some slow bass and a single vocal. Maybe Pete Murphy is a musical genius but this tune isn't an example of it

    Just watched Orbitals entire performance from this years Glastonbury.....WOW. One of their best ever I'd say. They've changed the set bigtime since I saw them last Nov and its sounding amazing, lots of reworkings and added samples of big hits, such as Madonnas Material Girl in the end of Chime.

    Currently listening to "Lonely Avenue" an album where Nick Hormby has written (very) short stories and Ben Folds has turned them into songs

    Ben Kenney - Burn the Tapes, is absolutely brilliant. For those who have never come across him (I've tried plugging him on here time and time again) - he is the bass player of Incubus but his solo stuff is so funky and different. I love it.

    Worlds Collide is one of my favourites of the new album - it stinks of summer to me. PLEASE give it a quick listen

    RIP Solomon Burke. Fast Train is one of my favourite songs which I'm going to blast out in his memory.

    Just read he leaves behind 21 children and 90 grandchildren which is legendary in its own right.

    I have had my first listen to new albums by two of my favourite bands.

    1. Band of Horses - Infinite Arms.

    Superb - listened to it twice today, some awesome melodies, and very catchy tunes. I think it has grabbed me quicker than the previous two. The last track in particular really impressed me. Really want to see them live. I'm hoping I'll get to see their show in Brum in January, but it's all down to (limited) finances.

    2. The Bees - Every Step's A Yes

    Brand new, out today - my copy arrived - signed by the band. I'm mad on this band - seen them live more than any other (11 times I think). This album is very much like their first - a lot more 'dreamy' and not as catchy and 'poppy' as their previous two. But some cracking music nontheless. I recommend you check these guys out, particularly live. They're extremely mulit-talented musicians. This album is really relaxing, particularly in the background after a long day!!
