  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.

    Great and underrated guitarist, with Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Blue Mask-era Lou Reed, Brian Eno, John Zorn, and hundreds of other people, has died, apparently suicide. Very sad, he was a magnificent angular guitarist (check his album with Fred Maher, Basic), and, almost as important, recorded virtually every US performance of the Velvet Underground post-Cale (some of which were released a couple of years ago by Polydor, as The Velvet Underground Bootleg Series Vol. 1: The Quine Tapes). Always happier to appear on other people's records than front his own, so probably never got the recognition he deserved. I'll be spinning The Voidoid's Blank Generation album in memory of him.

    Really sad news, but a superb site that you linked to - a few mouse clicks and you are in the presence of a Residents or Michael Rother interview! I'm off to have a further look round...

    I'm surprised you didn't already know it! Perfect Sound Forever is an ace site, and even has a column devoted to the wonders of vinyl (The Vinyl Anachronist).

    He played some really great scronky and gnarly lead guitar for Matthew Sweet, sometimes joined by the also excellent Fred Smith who used to be in Television.

    I think they're on Girlfriend and 100% Fun, worthwhile post-grunge power pop albums both.
