Be brilliant when Monaco falls into the sea and all the Formula 1 drivers and Bono have to swim back to to the UK and pay income tax !

Still another European failure from us. How we let them beat us 3-1 at the Emirates, God only knows.

Bye bye Gus

Has Taricco been sacked or is Poyet leaving his number two in the dressing room again ?

Probably for the best J.

Anybody here see Sasha at Shellys? I was actually invited along to see him play there, but I was 15, didn't have a clue who he was and was far more into Operation Ivy/Face to Face/Black Flag/Minor Threat at the time. Told her to fuck off.

Met a lad from Stoke on holiday in 91, me and my mates were into raving (Fantazia et seq), he said that the clubs in Stoke were quality, so went up for the weekend. Drove by Shellys,saw the crowd and went to rave club Entropy instead.
Absolutely gutted, when we got into the Sasha / Digweed Renaissance vibe a couple of years later to have missed out ! Cracking night in Entropy mind.
Still in touch with mate from Stoke, he went to Shellys regularly.

You have got to have seen them play a Vinyl set back to back for any serious Prog Credentials !

Babealicious - Hastings Pier 1994

Shaking Sasha's hand after his Radio 1 Essential Mix set at the Que Club in Birmingham 1995.

Stood between the pair of them as they looked at clothes in Richmond Classics, Bournemouth 96 after playing at The Opera House the night before, with a copy of Castle Trancelott – Indoctrinate in my hand, just purchased after Sasha hearing Sasha play it !

Proper Prog Credentials Gents.

Arsenal have had a shocking record against Utd in recent years, we couldn't beat the Moyes side and lost earlier in the season at The Emirates.

So we are right to celebrate and enjoy it, it's been a long time coming.

Yes, Arsenal have their problems too. But Coquelin has made a huge difference recently, especially away from home where we can be a bit soft. Credit to him after being on loan at Charlton.

And a decent semi final draw too (cue the upset !)

My first Heaven visit was for Northen Exposure with Sasha and Digweed in November 95. Absolutely amazing night, Diggers first, then Sasha. Epic House era. Love to see some setlists but can't find a thing.

Bedrock at Heaven, used to enjoy the breaks in the Star Bar, Adam Freeland (before he turned into a bit of a knob).

Then to Diggers in the main room, heads down, prog pumping. Celeda - Be Yourself, big Bedrock tune for me, still gives me goosebumps when I hear that intro.

Great thread, very nostalgic. The memories.........

Only spend £20- £30 per month on vinyl now.

Used to love looking at the rareities on the wall in  Music and Video Exchange back in the day. Think I blew £30 on the white label of Sub Sub - Space Face back in the early 90's. Sold a few for the same amount around the late 90's on ebay. Discogs takes the fun out of it all a bit, but is blooody great all the same for picking up some forgotten gems for next to nothing.

I really rate Liam Howlett and loved the Dirtchamber Session mix compilation he did.

The Prodigy released some groundbreaking stuff in the early to mid 90's but this release is not for me. Perhaps they are aiming it at the younger generation as I could think of nothing worse than hearing this loud when out !!! Must be getting old.

Thanks for the memories Thierry. What a player !

Favourite moment ? Hard to pick but when he left Carragher and half the Liverpool team on their arses to score a wonder goal at Highbury in that vital 4-2 victory.

ETC - feel a bit sorry for the Super Hoops, watched them last night and they just need a bit of luck. Reckon they will survive though with a couple of decent January buys (not R.Keane and that tosser Defoe though !).

Can somebody shed some light on the Phil Thompson and Danny Howells never doing bedrock warmup slots again saga.

Prog-gate?

I think Danny just didnt want to do warm ups anymore and distanced himself from it as a headline DJ in his own right, dont know about Phil Thompson though

Howells' warm up slots in the bar on Hastings Pier for the Babealicious nights were lengendary.

Sasha and Diggers all night long. superb.

golden age of prog...  sad

read this as being a classics night - no?

A classic night but not a classics night !

In the middle of the BT / Epic House era. Sasha was superb, only remember that he finished with Beat Foundation - Save Me.

Great days.

Sasha and Diggers all night long. superb.

Honoured to get a mention from ETC, cheers. PMA !

Can't answer all the questions as not a regular on here but enjoy posts by ETC, Millsy, Yant, Smalls, Bedrob, Jamie, Sneddon and JoeyP to name a few.

The Alias' nonsense was a major problem earlier in the year but is slightly better now.

Enjoy all the old school type posts, don't really listen to much new stuff these days, so reminiscing about the early/mid 90's is up my strasse.

Mixes that I have enjoyed this year include those by Millsy, JP Sykes and Smashdad.

Keep up the good work crew !

See Roy Keane has walked from Villa.

Great player but what a knob head.

This looks superb, cheers for the heads up.

I see it is at Motion in Bristol, anyone been, what's it like as a venue ?

Can't find a picture, but Farage's clobber last night ! Oh dear.
