It's a fucking TUNE Shaunsy.

And John Farnham is an utter ledge, as proven by this photo.

It goes boom di di boom…or something like that

I shouted to Uncle J over the side of the booth something along those lines at Bedrock. 'PLAY THE ONE THAT GOES BOOM DI DI BOOM JOHN!....JOHN!....FUCKING BOOM DI DI BOOM JOHN!!!....JOHN!...'

Only went and played it n'all. Ledge.

The entire dancefloor swaying as one as the prog just gets better and better.

I've already said I have artistic differences with them.

I will be getting right on this today Homegrove me ol' mukka. Looks choice.

Just for clarification. Strudders and I are not an item ala 'My Two dads' or anything. Although he does have lovely hair and cheekbones.

what do you currently use mate? I am finding the S2 works fine for me and does what I need it to do. I will upgrade to something else when I also have analogue requirements, but running off a laptop and monitors works fine currently. The build quality is shocking, especially when I'm used to A&H gear, but for £250 what's the danger?

Amps wrote:

They should have dominated the market for club audio stuff, but the build quality just wasn't there. A lot of it used to break to easily in a club or tent environment etc.

I remember them giving us a demo model of their cdjs in about 2001 / 2002, long before the Pioneers where king and the technology was really out there, and it had a good pitch / tempo adjustment but you could lock the key, so it stayed in key as you sped it up, or the other way round of keeping the tempo locked and allowing you to change the key up and down. Sort of like a built in Melodyne or Auto Tune. No idea if modern cdjs have this in, but it was new back then. Another example of them not capitalising on what they had.

Interesting. Loving the ability to lock and warp key in Traktor, would have loved to have that with vinyl.

agreed...Harvey at 84! he costs a mint now to book.

It's all the cheesy Wotsits and Haribo he eats.

lol. When you do go Glen it's going to be like when Keith goes Chicken Oriental  in 'Nuts in May'. Just with more blood and man yoghurt.

Linghorn's boss said: "I just don't understand it. None of us saw it coming. He was always such a kind and gentle man. It's like he turned from Tony Hart into the Emperor Caligula in a matter of seconds. What he did to Jenny in Accounts will haunt all our dreams for eternity."

I like to imagine Glen in a certain way. I find it adds even more humour to his aleady humourous postings. I imagine him as a slightly plump balding man in a tweed suit and spectacles. He smells a little bit of malt vingar, like he's been pickling onions from his smallholding all weekend.

He has the air of a Mr Chips or Higgins from Magnum. He is methodical in his daily routine. He wakes, he showers, he packs two rounds of cheese and homemade pickle sandwiches into his lunchbox and listens to the Today programme. He drives his ageing Volvo to the Probation Ofice where he has a desk, piled high with papers and with 'Glen Linghorn: Probation Officer' on a small plaque atteched to the side of his cubicle. 

All the local criminals know Glen. He's the Probation officer they want. He's soft as shite and good for a chat. He cares. He makes them tea. He hugs them when they cry. He's like the father they never had.

But underneath this shallow facade is the Glen of the Bedrock Board. The beast of the Captain's Wheel, of Vi's drinks cabinet. The schemer, the debaser, the demon on a knife edge, the green man.

All it's going to take is a someone from HR to ask him why he's filled in his timesheet wrong and he's going to go postal.

Quality album cover that Glen lol

Kaftans are definitely the way forward. The chavs can keep their onesies.

I think Glenn is just one of the unlucky ones from the kib fraternity. It's hard to follow such success stories as Whitney Houston, John Belushi, Ike Turner and Edward Smallman.

I try to drink lots of water, but it makes me go wee wees all the time. Also chocoalate and beer are just fantastic aren't they? Hold on for more insight.
