Unfortunately for me I have just 'discovered' Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins.  I have no idea what to say except to recall a review I read which said (with snide reference to John's private parts) "such a big fuss over such a small thing".

The back cover has a quote from Genesis: "And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed".  Well, perhaps they should not have been ashamed of the nudity, but they sure should have been ashamed about foisting such a boring 30 minutes or so on an unsuspecting public.  Sorry all you arty types out there - it's just plain dull.

Off topic slightly, isn't Volbeat a Pokemon? (OK, off topic extremely) 

Is it in X or Y?  :)

 

Sorry, I didn't see this until now. 

Nah, Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. My favorite DS Pokemon game set. Still don't have or yet.

Woah. my brain flipped over to another thread for a split second, and I began wondering if we were talking about trcanberra's bother's friend and his wife's sister.

Never heard it, not sure I want to... and I have a high threshhold for pain.

As for the nudity, well... Sissy Spacek (as Rainbo) had a humorous lyric about it in "John (You've Gone Too Far This Time)" that probably sums up how a lot of Beatle fans felt about it.

"There's no such thing as bad student... only bad teacher."

'Two Virgins' I knew was rubbish…….I'd already tried and failed with Rev 9 so I never considered shelling out my paper-round money on it…...

 

But…..'Wonderwall' early ('Zapple' I think) I knew was George with a great band including Clapton alongside him. I found it, picked it up looked at the cover, put it back pondered and put it back……I think I did this on 3 or four occasions. Never did buy it. I bought '...Big Pink' by the Band instead.

I've just seen that the film is available on my Android TV box so I shall have a look and listen. 

 

As for new music? I don't think we are talking about new albums from established stars but new contemporary artists. I'm ashamed to admit that my last discovery was Keith Urban about 10 years ago……..before he was established if that counts.

 

Otherwise all I do is discover old timers like Lonnie Johnson's 'Too late to Cry' What a composed singer!!

Yesterday we did play a gig with these guys:https://thehotsprockets.bandcamp.com

kinda classic rock'n'roll/garage band with a really great sound on stage.

Why don't you put it on the toast?
