Re: 808 State biography

Thanks Markus, don't think I can improve on that much, but if you want me to have a go then say the word, although it will be next year now because I'm working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day at the MCR Xmas market, not that I want any sympathy..............ok then just a little.

Blueprint is in the Trafford Centre HMV store for £9.95, along with a couple of the deluxe albums, which I might have to rebuy cos mine are now scratched and skip.

Re: Best of 808 State (Blueprint)

I love Mark & Steve C's reviews, maybe they could be put on amazon.co.uk? The first review there is awful, by a certain J. Harrison from Dorset, he seems to make slagging off albums his hobby? http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B005D6T0ZW/ref=cm_cr_dp_all_helpful?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortB...

The reworked ‘Timebomb’ is relentless from...

Re: Tiger Ghee on BBC

They do play some cool music on that programme............not that I watch it *cough*. They even played a bit of 'Pacific' once, or at least a BBC version of it, not that I watched it, honest!

Re: Best of 808 State (Blueprint)

So for the past twenty odd years, 808s 'loyal' fans have been Rave Connoisseurs..................I like the sound of that :)

I don't know how the amazon rankings work, and when they're updated, but yesterday the ranking was well over 4,000. Today it has shot up to number 500. Amazing what an interview can do. Lets hope more are to follow before the big day.

Re: Graham on BBC Radio 6 this Wednesday 7 Sep 11

Surprised to hear Pacific 707 pre interview as it's not strictly on the album, but then shocked to hear them play Cobra Bora. Many a driver must have lost control of their vehicles at that point. Expect more stories of cars travelling down the motorway in the wrong direction. I thought they'd have p...
