    Good constructive blog critique of Alltracks

    Yep, I agree with him on the Metal and Rock chart - mind you, it's about the standard I expected when I saw who curated it.....

  • Hard News: How about that cricket, eh?, in reply to simon g,

    If John Key heads off to the MCG (“What by-election?”) I will want them to win 90%.

    If he turns up on the telly at the game, 80%.

    If he turns up in the dressing room, 60%.

    If he wears one of those silly shirts and catches the ball … COME ON Australia!

    If he gets in to another awkward 3-way handshake on the winner's podium like he did at the Rugby World Cup final, can we just revoke his passport and leave him in Melbourne?

  • Hard News: Friday Music: An unforced craft,

    I bought this record today, from a band I'd never heard of before who recorded it in Whanganui - https://greenfog.bandcamp.com/album/bruce-farm

    It's a big slab of loud droney guitar, in a similar vein to Black Boned Angel but with more notes, and it's quite wonderful.

  • Hard News: How about that cricket, eh?,

    With 10 overs to go I was quietly confident.

    With 5 overs to go I was resigned to losing in the semifinals for a 7th time.

    For the last two overs I was on the edge of my seat, not even wanting to talk.

    That has to be the best game of cricket I've seen in a long, long time.

  • Hard News: To defame and deflect,

    I've heard Key's "Hager's last allegations were categorically disproven" sound bite about 3 times across different media now, and not once have I heard a journalist ask him which allegations were the ones that were categorically disproven. He gets a free ride that allows him to set the agenda.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Fickle Rock,

    I can attest to Robin Lambert's skill as a salesman in Sounds Unlimited - I would walk in, he'd recognise me, suggest 2 or 3 new arrivals to listen to, and I would inevitably leave with what I'd been intending to buy AND the 2 or 3 he'd played for me. I was only ever a weekly visitor, but he still knew who I was when I went in there - it was almost like having your own personal record buyer.

    A Minister for Sauntering would suit the talents of many in this current mob.

    Swaggering, surely?

    Russell, I’m bitterly disappointed at your failure to tell everyone that DJ Max Key is in the house

    Listen to them here

    If that's what the kids are in to these days, I'm quite pleased I'm a curmudgeon.
