Public Service Broadcasting (Artist) - Every Valley (Album)

A band nonetheless, combining Indie tunes (guitar, drums, electronica, whatelse) and archive broadcast recordings.

My description is a poor one, I can only say take a listen, poignant nostalgia meets art pop. Clever and inspirational, how on earth do you create an album dealing with western de-industrialisation and the demise of the coal mining industry? I've no idea but somehow these people have.

First time I've posted what I'm listening to, most of you probably aren't too bothered what's in my collection, maybe some will find this post genuinely interesting.

I'll be checking them out tomorrow - I quite like those with a social documentary twist (Plan B being a favourite). The write up has got my interest.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Amused me greatly, that's where we're moving to later this year. I was trying my accent out this weekend on the closest thing I have to Northerners. They were not impressed.

Good luck with the move,and if you have taken advantage of the property price differential between Beighton and Reading that would be very sensible in my opinion!
Although I live just over the border in Derbyshire,for a few years I drove through Beighton every day on the way to work.
I should look up the Everly PBs other stuff on YouTube to practice your Sheffield accent...and don't forget to bin your Worcestershire sauce and get some Henderson's Relish or you won't fit in at all... :)

Tis near enough the primary reason for moving. Thy luv ov pies. That and an earlier obsession with Human League, and if they were of Sheffield, it can't be a bad place surely?

Back on topic. This is the 80's nostalgia drenched noise that gets me through the more monotonous parts of my day to day work.



Is it possible to customize a car based entirely off an album cover? Maybe one day, for now my SS1s live in fear of being attacked with vibrant pastel tones and geometric graphics.

Tristan and Isolda recording from Bayreuth 1966 with Nillson and Windgassen is on loop in my car at the moment. Anyone else know this recording?

Not this one but I have a very early 45pm EP inherited from my late Mother with Arturo Toscanini conducting his N.B.C. Symphony Orchestra (recorded somewhere between '49 & 1952) & featuring the 'Liebestod', Act 3.....the prelude) - the most beautiful, romantic piece of music!

Changing tack slightly put 'Joe Bonamassa/Paul Rodgers - Walk in My Shadows' into a YouTube search...........(didn't realise that it was an old Free number composed by Mr. Rodgers when he was about 18!)
