Guardian of the Galaxy Vol II Soundtrack is full of classics and this is the best of the bunch.

I approached David Gedge after the Seamonsters gig and said it was my favourite album of all time.

He looked as me as if to say ‘stop talking shite and go away from me’ yet muttered a ‘thanks’.

I wouldn’t have had any other way!

Re my point about The drummer. Charlie Hall gives a master class here


@ironmoth and @ChocolateMice and other War on Drugs fans. I took the trouble to see this crowd in Manchester on their last world tour because they didn’t play Ireland. It was money very well spent. They are a tremendous band live and with a new album coming up on Atlantic they are going to be touring again soon so do whatever it takes to see them. You won’t regret it.


I was looking at their dates the other day, pal… They play in Sweden the day before my birthday… i’ll say it to princess and plant the seed.


They’re only hitting the UK again, from what I’ve seen online. My days of downing tools and heading overseas to see a band are behind me and about 10 years in front of me. I’ve watched mostly live clips of TWOD online since @labane1917 recommended them, and they’ve definitely got ‘it’. Opeth will be my next outing, Fagan. Unless Porcupine Tree or Tool pop out of the woodwork with a surprise tour.


Am I correct that the recommendation of @The_Scouse_Cafu persuaded you to to attend their show at Vicar Street in 2014?


They are playing down the road from me in October, will be securing tickets as soon as they come out. Hopefully the new album will not disappoint, first big label album and all that.


That was a ballhop. I actually travelled to see them in Manchester for the first time in 2015.




They’re hitting a few spots in Europe …


Sorry Choco… What I meant by that is they’re not coming here.


Take her away for a ‘romantic’ weekend … oh look, TWOD are playing here tomorrow night…


I was just looking at that. Not so easy with the nippers but worth giving it thought.


We’ll make it a double date.


Cool. We can start a fight at the gig. It’ll be perfect.


I’m going to see them in Manchester again. I’m staying with @flattythehurdler. I’m sure he’ll have room for 3 or 4 more of us.


Will you be travelling over in the EV? Any chance of a lift?
