Spotify will start streaming their music in better quality soon enough, Im sure


No, Spotify have said they have no intention of streaming at any quality beyond 'shite'.

Streaming 320k Ogg Vorbis files is hardly, 'shite'...

Great tune but is it one that historically represents Bedrock smashy ?

I've haven't played another Bedrock release more than that so, yeah, for me it's what I think of when someone mentions Bedrock Records.

Other releases/tracks were bigger and probably more typically 'Bedrock' but it's all personal eh...

Dirt cheap on discogs I imagine. Yep, mint copies for less than a fiver.

I should have said a decent rip mate.

My most played Bedrock tune without a doubt...

Smashy logged in confessing to jet-lag didn't he?

Bet his daughter (does he mention her enough?) was reet chuffed when she wanted to hit the shops.

How was New York?

And how were the restaurant recommendations?

Still here for another 48 hours geezer - the steak place on Saturday night was immense.  Hopeful of getting to your breakfast recommendation tomorrow - hold tight for feedback...

If my legs were that fucking puny the absolute last thing I'd do was wear trousers that drew attention to them.  State of him - doesn't look like he could get himself up  a flight of stairs.

747man - have you just collated 16 or so quotes from god knows how many threads, and what period of time, in an attempt to suggest someone else is unhinged?!

Genuinely no idea what I was expecting but two listens in and I'm still slightly underwhelmed...

It's big and it bangs and 'cos it's them you just know it'll sound mint very loud - certainly hasn't put me off the album, if anything it's made me more curious.

Jimmy Sommerville's new album - full on, authentic old-skool late 70s disco, no cover versions, all originals - not got a single muscle on it or in it, so 95% of those on here will give it the swerve, but full live instrumentation, huge sweeping string arrangements, the whole nine yards.  Most uplifting thing I've heard in ages.

How are you smashdad? Sound advice it seems, I will have a sniff about this. Im a man of very fine tastes.

Not so bad thank you creeps - currently throwing shapes and cutting rugs like a fucking dervish...

*edit*
swapped the album version out for the even hairier-chested extended remix...

Smashy,would you have an mp3 of this?

I've got a FLAC - can bounce it down to a 320mp3 - up to you...

Anybody from Bedrock and/or Lock'n'Load like to pass on some insight as to when I can expect to see the tickets I paid for eleven weeks ago?!

Has Smash Jnr heard Sasha's GU Ibiza CD1 yet Smashy?

And if not, why not?

prog credentials in doubt?

Safe to say that kid has heard NE2 disc 1 more than most 18 year olds - pretty sure her young ears 'benefitted' from all the GUs as well.

Back to the original topic though - I really enjoyed the eponymous Horsebeach album last year - no idea how it got on 'chart-wise' but it seemed to me like a top-notch 2014 twist on the classic 'jangly' 80s indie-pop sound - listening again now, good stuff...

Gingerman is on her list mate and, trust me, I shall be steering her whenever possible - the more decent draught beers I can work into the weekend the smoother I reckon it'll roll...  And yeah, the relative (perceived) merits of 'the village/soho' have been pitched against a massive fuck off department store and/or mall.

We'll see.

Thank you all for the suggestions so far though - the individual and collective concern is quite touching.

But only the original on Music Now - none of that licensed, remixed, shite...
