    Yes, he has - mid life crisis? Luckily his voice still sounds the same...

      Yes, it's all about his voice isn't it: slow, quiet, and very Irish.

      • I highly recommend The Sandbaggers, one of the best examples of what British TV is occasionally capable of with a limited budget IMO

            I might have to set my alarm clock for that, or whatever it is you do when something's on the telly.

              • THE LIBRARY MUSIC FILM w talk and afterparty - Enjoyed it but pretty straight forward.

                THE GREAT SILENCE - Rated spaghetti western w Klaus Kinski by Django's director. Enjoy the style, brutality and bleakness, but dragged on a little.

                • Have the "Drums/Bass/Guitar" docs on BBC4 been mentioned? there's a few days left on iplayer for the first episode (ends Tuesday)

                  Not bad, some footage I'd not seen before and some different talking heads to usual. I think the Tina Weymouth one about the bass might have been the best. board fave Herbie Flowers talking about Walk On The Wild Side, etc

                    I've watched the drums one so far - but am looking forward to the "bass" episode most.

                    • Hearts Beat Loud

                      You might be tempted to see a film about a middle-aged record shop owner who owns a record shop and sells the record shop but bonds with his daughter through music.

                      DON'T BE. The music they make is AWFUL, even worse than the stuff lady Gaga did in that Star Is Born film, and that was bad enough. And you only see racks of records, not many actual records. The film is not about records AT ALL! It's about growing, moving on, accepting life and that sort of bollocks. And he's nasty to Toni Collette! Toni Collette's great! (but not in this.)

                      • Halfway through HBO's "The Defiant Ones" 4 parter about Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine, and it's really good. Lots of vintage footage. Like all these new Netflix era series it could probably be a bit shorter. Was only vaguely aware of Iovine, never realised he had such an interesting career (not mentioned in the doc yet, but I see on Wikipedia he even engineered the golden records on the NASA Voyager!)

                        Warning that the talking heads do include Bono (it was producing Rattle and Hum that finally broke him as a producer...)

                        • Just remembered I also watched this on Netflix:

                          Remastered - the Two Killings of Sam Cooke
                          https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/80191045

                          about his civil rights side and various theories about his death. Got me thinking that if he'd lived it would probably have been him doing a "What's Going On?" LP well before Marvin.

                          Anyone got the "live at Harlem Square" LP? only released in the 80s, but recorded with a mostly black audience so sounded like it was rawer than his more polished hits (and the Live at the Copa LP etc).

                          • Cold War

                            A bit like A Star is Born but instead of dull American country rock ballads you get splendid Polish folk songs, moody 50s Parisian jazz, a spot of film soundtracking, Bill Haley and 60s dodgy latin.

                            Gorgeous film

                            • I commend these two documentaries to the house (both watched in recent days):
