    Especially as some schools (like my son's) are on half term this week, so he's only been off a few days
  2. I’m pretty sure I don’t have a USB input as the amp is probably 10 years old, but I’ll check. I don’t have an MP3 player.
  3. I don’t currently listen to any music files on my hi-if system, but I am due to be getting a load of rare and ‘Dutch import’ type stuff on a memory stick, and have loads of stuff I’ve put onto iTunes over the years from various odd sources such that I only have them as digital files I’d like to play some of them from either my laptop or direct from a USB through my hi-fi system. I’m sure I could just run some kind of cable from the laptop into my amp, but is this a sensible way of doing things? Is there another gadget/device I ought to be using? Happy to spend a few quid if need be,

    Does anyone have the stats for what the infection/death/something useful rates were by region when we first went into lockdown, vs. now? The government are claiming (yes, I know...) that we shouldn't have a national lockdown now as that would 'punish' places like Cornwall unnecessarily - hearing plenty of grumbling round here about places having to go into the first lockdown when cases were low, but it was done nationally due to the south being more affected. Any truth in this?
  5. Funk is a genre (like heavy metal/hard rock) that I just can't seem to get, so I don't think there are anywhere near 10 funk albums I like
  6. A few shocking omissions so far (unless I’ve missed them): The Fall - Perverted By Language Leonard Cohen - I’m Your Man The House Of Love - s/t

    Aha. Fair enough. I don’t have any of those. My missus knows not to raid The Fall section unattended.... Likewise I don’t let anyone borrow a book as other people like to crack a spine 🤬

    Jeez, I wish! Not hit 7k yet, largely due to no longer being young, free and single! That problem you mention is a clear case of sloppy CD ownership habits. If you don’t put vinyl back properly it can easily get damaged too!

    I have been buying CDs since 1988 (and am into the thousands) and I could probably count on the fingers of one hand the number that no longer play perfectly. In fact, I can't think of a single one right now. So I respectfully disagree.

    Did someone suggest the best time to try and book a test? My nephew has symptoms and needs to get one
  11. On this at the moment, though other than a cover of The Go-Betweens' Karen (not a patch on the original, of course), it's nothing special:

    Gigs 2014+

    Well I absolutely wouldn't pay for a live stream of a gig, but then I'm not even really interested in watching one for free either - not even vaguely in the same ballpark as actually being at a gig
  13. Needs more spins to give a considered view, but it seems it might be up there with Tupelo Honey
