Maybe not the right thread but....

Picked up a tannoy surround sound system and Denon power amp yesterday and hooked my turntable to it this morning.

Without coming across as a bit of a pretentious twat....Holy fuck my records sound good.

Today is mostly sponsored by Radiohead

Vienna - Ultravox

Isn't it weird when a song from your past reenters your consciousness and you become obsessed with it all over again?

I've listened to this about 10 times today.
Love it when that happens - great song, to be fair.

Had the same thing yesterday with this song:

Dug out an old Kerrang compilation CD to listen to while unloading firewood. Some great stuff on here (although the Spotify playlist is missing Gary Numan, Black Flag, and Mortiis :( ):

Just lovely paddy, real treat indeed, most accessible album too imo. Any nobber on here been to an autechre gig?

I read the shows are in complete darkness
As far as I can remember they played at a club we used to go to but it wasn't strictly a gig. More playing a bit of their stuff then DJing. But my memory was really addled at that point. Trying to see if I can find flyers online from around the time (Orbit in Morley some point during the 90s)

Only place I've been to down there is the Old Fire Station. I had a fantastic time (I think)

The Orbit is/was the stuff of folklore and the names they got to go and play out in the sticks effectively is something else. Should have a read some of the stuff online about its history. Doesn’t feel like you’d ever achieve what a lot of those clubs did back then in today’s world

The Orbit was when I was in Leeds, height of the clubbing scene with Back to Basics, Vague and Ark and Hard times and stuff moving to Leeds. Feels a lifetime ago

actually never went anywhere really down here even though Slinky and I think it was the Manor were the big name clubs down here. The Old Fire Station is basically the student Union venue still but is another ive not done a gig at since being here. The other venues or Southampton mop up most acts
