Recommended Posts

Alot of people can't get away with Bjork and think she is a bit mental. I really like her music and this cover performed by swedish singer Ane Brun is an amaaaaaaazing cover.

What is this vinyl you speak of Malcolm?

Don't be facetious you young whippersnapper!

Back in the days of Yore, when men were men and sheep were frightened, there was a black plastic disc with undulations for a needle to run on. By a series of magical incantations it was possible to get sound out of this set up, which was called a gramophone. It did have to be in a sterile environment or fluff would build up on said needle and distort any sound which was produced. Also there was a need for everyone listening to it to be completely still or a much dreaded scratch might ensue and that could completely destroy the disc. These were originally all large discs but the popularity of certain beat combo bands and the gullibility of the general public meant much moolas could be made by unscrupulous alchemists who started producing smaller discs with only two songs on. These were rated A and B and spawned a whole new industry.

Hi everyone, just joined this month. Pleased to see some Floyd fans about. I have just posted something on The Wall section. I am one of these sad people who still has locked away in the music vaults my treasued vinyl collection. Guarded by the minefields in the drive and the cold electronic eye. I'm a Moody Blues fan - circa late sixties until they split up, now they are a bit ify. But I noticed Mick Ronson up there - me and my bro went to see him at the City Hall in the seventies. Awesome guitarist, sadly missed. I have both Slaughter and Play Don't Worry - yes vinyl! Great to see High Hopes, too. brilliant. I will be checking this site more often. Keith.

Brubeck was a pioneer for jazz music. He was one of the first artists to deviate from the 4/4 time with this one being named after the 5/4 time (Take Five) it was written in.

You also don't get many people like Paul Desmond in any industry anymore.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
