also, if anyone would like to help me, that would be top drawer!
Go ahead. I've been thinking about the same for Spanish stuff. We need the variety.
Under the Kilt is pretty predictable I supposeOffKilter?I've Been A Naughty Boy So Spank Me?Haggis Pop?Sean Who?
@ blimpy - I'd love to hear what you have in mind. I'd also like to contribute but I'm not sure that my Scottish stuff would be obscure enough. Unless I dig up some C86-era material from the attic ...Aye Tunes is a genius title!
Great idea, but bah to samples, always leave you wanting more or less, but thoroughly unsatisfied either way. Would make a great 4 or 5 part series - a few letters a week? When done, someone else could start a new one on a new theme?
Good idea ShoeyGoing one step further, 3 or 4 for each letter and let people discuss and vote. Same idea as someone I know does for album of the month, which always produces some interesting comments.Keep us busy for 26 weeks
Nah, democracy is over-rated. My AOTM is all tied up with no decision & it's September already. Blimpy should & will do as he damn well pleases like any benevolent dictator (but let's hope it's not another "loft in music"). Highly recommend Rob Da Bank's A-Z Bestival btw (unless you don't like electronic stuff).
In my mental A-Z of Scottish Indie artistes, I got stuck on Q for a while, but found a classic. Anticipate falling at the x hurdle.
Q would be the Questions, no? I'm sure toffee was just getting there.
What was wrong with my epic "Loft In Music" feature????!!!
I actually kind of enjoyed it Shoey
Shoey, the only bad thing about loft in music was the bad poetry on that thread. And you were responsible for that mate.I think Aye Tunes is a good title, grudgingly accepting that I can't come up with a better pun.And of course I'll read it.How do we chip in though Blimpy?
PS I've got an idea for X.
@proudfoot - i think i'll start it off, and then at the end of the post i'll say which letter will be next, and if anyone's got recommendations they can email me via the sidebar.
Needless to say, this series won't be executed in a linear fashion. Or will it?
Get to work then McFlah. Cannae wait.
Was there another Loft in Music? Was referring to the one where Blimpy found an obscure tune in his loft. It was a great idea for a series, but nobody else has posted one yet.
Ah I see. Yes, it did fizzle out. Maybe no-one has lofts.I did find a 'Soundtrack of our Lives' single from the late 90s t'other day.It was wedged under the bookcase. It wasn't very good. All the music in my attic is on cassettes so I can't really drop it. Aye Tunes is a much better idea, 'tis true.
Aye aye Captains!!
K is for Krankies
Gasp! Just listened to Zoey. McFlah that is fantastic. Cheers pal.
@proudfoot - heck yes!! thanks for listening!
Aye to Och (& Yon)?
