Jeez thats a lot....

An overkill of Scots traditional music really, Manran, Skippinish, Coast, Runrig  but mostly Skerryvore and Tidelines because the boss lady loves them.

I did get a record player again, after losing my entire record collection in a flood a number of years back ( over 1000 albums and even more singles) I've started picking up vinyl again..... you forget just how good it sounds!

Oaft, I hate hearing horror stories about people losing their vinyl!  Sorry to hear that SS, but good luck hunting down some replacements.  Sadly, their prices have rocketed in the last couple of years, even in charity shops...  Crying or Very sad [/b]

I cried.. but partially my own fault.. they were in the garage because the house we were in at the time just wasn't big enough and we'd only just arrived. Everything was double wrapped in plastic, and lifted off the floor onto pallets, I didn't account for the local mouse population or the garage getting flooded...   Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad

It's been fun finding stuff again, mother lucked out at Christmas found me a first press of Bat Out of Hell for £4 in a wee record shop in an old church in Kilwinning of all places. Visited it last time we were home.... oh boy; they have a fair amount out on the stands, new releases and second hand stuff but upstairs there about 10,000 albums waiting to be sorted and a fully catalogued batch of singles they bought from a radio station somewhere

Some things I'll never be able to replace, a one of 50 clear vinyl first press copies of Ultravox's Lament album for instance.  Found 5 Runrig albums in a shop in Perth last week, the four early albums are like hens teeth.....  and yes, prices are mental though there are bargain if you want to hunt them down.

My Missus said write a list of the "critical" Albums I wanted........ I stopped at 500...... Laughing  Laughing

That's an impressive list UF - I haven't been to anything like that amount.  The ones that stand out over the last 18 months or so - in no particular order, are:

Fujiya & Miyagi
Brian Jonestown Massacre
Massive Attack
The Trouble Pilgrims/Radiators
The Pop Group (outfuckingstanding)
Mission of Burma
Pere Ubu
Cherry Glazerr
Jello Biafra
Grace Jones

I'm sure there are others I have missed, but maybe they weren't overly memorable.  I did go to see the Iggy movie, Gimme Danger, last week and it is well worth a look if you can see it.  I had planned on going to Lost in France, the movie about the Chemical Underground bands made by an Irish director http://edgecityfilms.co.uk/Projects/lost-in-france/ but something came up.

Sorry for your troubles SS, but I must be one of the few that doesn't miss vinyl one bit.  I went digital in 2001 and haven't looked back since, and don't hanker for it at all.  That said, its all in the attic...

Yeh I caught Gimme Danger at the cinema and enjoyed it.  Didn't know about the Chemikal Underground film which looks interesting.  Everyone else on the forum should be interested in The Delgados (yes, they are named after him) and their albums "Domestiques" and "Peloton"!  

On cycling-related music, there was also a band with one of the guys from Carter USM called Abdoujaparov - sadly,  I don't think they managed to elbow their way into the charts, however...

I wish Smile

i'd probably get to more if i lived in dublin but last year, i was 8 which is an improvement from 2014 and 2015 which werelean live years less than that. Was at Margaret Glaspy last November which was very good.

low in chrstchurch cathedral was my favourite last year, brilliant and a great setting. john grant last july was also superb.

this year is looking a good year though, i had 6 so far.

frightened rabbit
joseph
tegan & sara
haley bonar
arcade fire
lisa hannigan (that was mesmerising)

my favourites so far have been lisa hannigan and haley bonar. both really good.

and 5 more so far arranged for the rest of the year - belle & sebastian in 2 weeks, september is roots manuva and amber arcades, october is st. vincent and in november is london grammar Smile

looking good for this

One for Slapshot maybe...

What I know about traditional music can be engraved on a needle head, but a friend (who is a piper) opened a pub tonight and various pipers played at the opening.  As I said I know SFA but I know enough to know that this boy Sean McKeon is one serious musician...
