1. 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.

    Glad you liked it. There's a whole load of stuff in there that not many people knew about until now. Loved the way it was told. Such a great sense of humour. Looking forward to part 2 myself too.

    Yes it's lengthy but so readable.
    I'm still on his formative years before Kraftwerk so I have all of this to come - Highly recommended though (btw buy it from Rough Trade and get an autographed copy:))

    I'm not entirely sure I need to read another book about Kraftwerk, but I've weakened anyway. Seemed rude not to.

    I'm currently working my way through Out Of Space: How UK Cities Shaped Rave Culture by Jim Ottewill, and am thoroughly enjoying it.

    I wouldn't call myself a massive fan, but I'm really enjoying Gary Numan's autobiography, (R)evolution. He seems remarkably self aware, and largely lacking in ego; always giving proper credit to his collaborators and family.

    I just read Glen Matlock's I Was A Teenage Sex Pistol after finding a cheap copy in the chazza. Interesting to read about the early days of the band and his depictions of the characters involved ring true.

    Amazon have it on Kindle for £3.

    Thanks Graham. I find it a lot easier to read this sort of stuff in book form so that's quite interesting.

    Eighteen months on… sod John Westlake, what is Mark up to? I’m already resigned never to see vol. 3 as either he or I are likely to snuff it beforehand - but vol. 2 would be nice.

    When is the right time for a class-action?
