  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I've been rediscovering a few bands that I loved when I was a teenager and haven't heard much of them since, and there are still some gems here. Okay, some stuff sounds dated, but a lot of it is so good I wonder why these guys have been largely forgotten.

    Robert Palmer figured in my mind for some reason but the albums I got recently just didn't cut it unfortunately, but now I'm getting to the good stuff like The Strawbs, Gallagher & Lyle, Graham Parker & The Rumour and most importantly Sutherland Brothers & Quiver.

    I think The Sutherland Brothers have to be one of the most overlooked British bands. They had Tim Renwick cutting his teeth and he was fantastic, and the songs were just so great. I saw them once at the students union bash at Christmas one year when I was at college and they blew me away. Great band.

    Johnny Winter & Rick Derringer too. And anyone remember Lone Star?

    I'm sure I've missed loads of stuff that I should be rediscovering.

    I discovered Edgar & Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer/Derringer and the group of bands they formed as a hard rocking teenager in the late 80's. The only one of their LP's that still appeals to me is the Edgar Winter's White Trash LP recorded live at the Apollo in '70 or so - which is full of great breaks. The rest all sounds a bit straight blues rock, albeit pretty fierce.

    The Rumour also released 2 or 3 'solo' albums, the first (Max) was excellent.

    What about Brinsley Schwartz, Ducks Deluxe, Hatfield & the North, Dr Feelgood, Stiff Little Fingers, That Petrol Emotion?
