Same. Although I was less likely to get it, not being in London and that.

Seeing them tonight though, so all good.

My mate who won the tickets is from Newcastle, so we were really lucky. Enjoy tonight, it should be mint.

It was actually my mate who entered the ballot, he's a massive fan. His wife didn't want to go so he invited me big_smile

Been listening to the remastered version of Dubnobass on the old headphones today... kerwalitee stuff all round!

Do you notice the difference in the sound quality/dynamics?   I had it on in the car and found it to be definitely punchier.

Speaking of sound, I forgot to say that the sound quality at Maida Vale Studios was superb. As you'd expect really.

How many people were there? 

The image Millsy paints above would have been legendary had the numbers been below 30 ... shirtless, sweating middle aged men going absolutely chicken oriental on a Wednesday lunchtime for exactly 1 hour ... in a fully lit room with 'regular' people going about their normal day.

I'd say no more than 300-400 people, but it wasn't fully lit, it was like a proper gig when they were actually performing.

Did you get on the Mick Mills Titian?

smile We did think about it, but my contacts in that arena are somewhat limited these days, so we just had a couple of pints before.
Didn't see anyone who looked like they had either tbh.

How long did they play for, TW?...sounds like a decent lunch that smile

Just an hour, dark and long, dirty epic, three months off, scribble, cowgirl and (I think) 2 others. Also a couple of questions from the audience. On the train back to Leeds now, but well worth taking the day off work for!

I was lucky enough to go to this earlier today, very strange at midday on a Wednesday but thoroughly superb. For those in the UK, it's on the red button at 7, well worth a watch and listen!

I bought the GoGo Penguin album the other week, it's very nice. Downloading now.

My HD-25s broke last year (after 20 years of use), I simply bought another pair.

Found out this week that the word tip originated from 'To Insure Promptness' and was paid at the start of dining.

Another amazing fact for you all next week guys!

The problem with that is the word should be ensure, not insure. I smell urban myth.

Magic.

Sydney 1997 for me, stunning.

Fair fucking play to whoever is in charge of product design / finish at Sony, they're having a good laugh. It feels like it'll break in your hand and the disk drive and fans sound like they came out of a skip. Thought they would have sorted such things after the ps2. feels like a cheap £50 printer rather than a £330 quid console.

It's supposed to be pretty quiet when running (after the game has installed on the hard drive), you might have got a duff one. The new version of Tomb Raider has been spruced up for the PS4, really enjoyed it on the PS3. If you haven't played it, it's definitely worth checking out.

When I get round to buying one (there aren't really enough games for either yet that warrant the outlay) it'll be the PS4. Universally regarding as the more powerful, has the the better versions of multi-platform titles, but the main reason is I tend to prefer the Playstation exclusive games, more. And that's the question you should ask yourself, then buy which one you prefer.
Neither console is currently as good as their predecessors as media devices (DNLA etc.) which is another reason I'm holding off.

I've had 2 older (4-5 years) mixes pulled recently.

That is brilliant.

I'm not sure if this is the latest thread for this topic but I'm in a hotel bar on my phone and the search is wank.  I've just had a mix that I posted over 5 years ago taken down for the usual reason. 5 years, is there really any point?
