I just recently saw a magazine in WH Smiths saying how to be a successful band. Although, I am no longer in a band - too old now just doing my C64 remixes now. I'd like to pass on my experiences and things I've learned/read from band Bio's to Bands starting out! Thing is, for me no one told you thes...

As we are on the subject of classic kid's tv shows anyone remember a show called Pipkins or was I dreaming it. It scared the crap out of me when I was young because it was so surreal. If I remember there was a rabbit thing that looked as if it had myxomatosis and a load of other old mouldy puppets i...

Sad to hear about Richard Wright passing away. He contributed a lot to the Floyd's sound. They will never reform now to record a new album as rumors kept stating after Live8!

:cry:

Off to listen to Wish You Were here...........

I have to agree with Noel! The TV license is outdated now that we are paying for Sky television and can view things like You Tube/DVD's on our computers too! Also the Beep are making crap programmes now anyway. Too many make over, reality shows & freak shows parading unfortunate people with afflicti...

Shadow Of The Beast II springs to mind initially! But for me it has to be Stryx on the Amiga. I'd been used to just seeing 8-bit graphics & sound so when this game was first loaded on my new Amiga. It dazzled me with sampled sounds from an M1 and cool looking graphics. It was then I knew it ushered ...

Are the days of Dance music finally over!!!

Hi everyone, I'm not saying this is a good thing or bad thing but I think the days of dance music are finally coming to an end or at least wanning in popularity. The reasons why I think of this of are firstly; in my local Dawsons music shop they have scaled down the Hi Tech section to a tiny cubicle...

Ok a lot of my choices have been mentioned Pink Floyd Division Bell, Prodigy, U2, Guns N Roses being several so here are some of my other choices. They are a little mixed but they soundtracked my life in one way or another! In no order; 1) The Omen (1994) - Magic Affair 2) In Utero (1993) - Nirvana ...

I agree with most of the comments. One of the joys of early gaming was seeing what the developers were doing to push the envelope of the system both in graphics and sound nowadays we expect top class graphics and sound with our dedicated cards which we don't always get. If i had the choice of going ...
