I'm enjoying A Winged Victory For The Sullen's "Atmos" - can't help but think that Millsy and Henry would love this.  Atmospheric sounds.

Just outside London:

A Cena - cracking Italian in Richmond
Masaniello - cracking Italian in Twickenham
Moiduls - cracking Indian in Teddington

Alec's in Brentwood is excellent.
Love The Mango Tree.
Goodmans and Boisdales in Canary Wharf are where to go for good steak.

Goodmans and Boisdales would've been alright-ish, but with Hawksmoor on the scene, they're very much shit-ish.

Fucking hell Matt.

My favourite restaurants in London at the moment are:

Beast (crab and steak)
Dabbous (modern Eurpoean)
Pollen Street Social (modern Europea)
Scotts (fish, old school style)

Hoping to hit the Hawksmoor In a couple of weeks. Has anyone tried the chateaubriand?


Hit the Seven Dials one before Bedrock Brixton, Nice Rib-Eye with triple cooked chips, bone marrow gravy and sides of maccaroni cheese and sprout tops, couple of bottle of red.

That.  The rib-eye is miles better than the chateaubriand.

My 19 year old self would be appalled at me talking like that.

Has anyone on this board NOT been to a Bedrock at Heaven?

I've been to one outside of Heaven which was at matter. Not much of a clubber nowadays.

XOYO and Fire for me only

Those three gigs at XOYO were incredible.

Think this was one of the last ones at Heaven. Will always have a special place in my heart:

I remember that exact moment.  That makes me feel sick as a dog.

In defence of Ed, Clapham Common is really nice

Not as nice as Teddington mind.

I lived in Brent Cross when I first moved to London.  £60 a week rent.  Total shithole.  Finsbury Park is a bit of a shithole an all.

Fucking hell, I wasn't allowed near aspirin on my wedding day.  Fair play.

Happy birthday Shaun. Has the anxiety kicked in yet?

I promise I'm not being contrary for the sake of it Flares.

I saw them in a really dump of a club in south east London just before Christmas 2013 and they were brilliant.

Having said that, I can't be arsed going tomorrow.

It's not an attitude to life, it's an opinion Flares.

I just rather not be subjected to some sub-par music that tarnishes a once great past.

Behave Grant, you'd have your lad out if Mozza and Marr held hands again.

True, but I wouldn't want them to make a new album.

Dan, I'd go and see him live too, it's the new material I can't be bothered with.

Really? I'm quite looking forward to it mate.

I'm not a big fan of old geezers trying to re-live their youth - the output is usually piss-poor and it takes the shine off their earlier material. 

New Order are a classic case.  I loved The The back in the day, but this album will be rubbish (in my opinion)

Tragic.

There, I've said it.

Continuing my developing theme, I'm a good decade or so off 'trend' so what the howling fuck is a 'shortend long trouser'?

And brogues without socks?  Stab them.  In their faces...

Trousers that aren't the normal length.  Trousers that are too short.

Yup. To be fair, he started the latest fad that went on five years too long.

Time will tell I suppose. The beard is dead. The facial one, at least.

Had to cancel a ski trip due to the mother-in-law dying a couple of weeks ago (I loved her to bits). But off to Argentiere on Sunday on a ridiculously short-term trip and the weather is looking epic with snow everywhere.

Happy days. Not every Flares could piss on these chips.

That's a right old can of worms Dave.  Oh my gawd.

Getting on to the original post from Dave, isn't Rio Ferninand's, Andy Gray and Richard Key's banter a very, very shit version and not really what banter is?  It's like comparing MBB and holding it up a a beacon of comedy when the reality is that examples of great comedy are better served by the likes of Seinfeld or The Office?
