  1. Sidmouth Folk Festival livestreaming - Martin Simpson now http://sidmouthfolkfestival-live.co.uk/livestream.html?fbclid=IwAR1l0GR7V5ygnFw89vsU7unEq9VVuN4JQskv6yS0xRhq6CZJ7BOJMP80to0
  2. The Rohypnocello had addled my brain - it was 2018. He she was:
  3. I believe that she is shacked up with a ginger plumber north of Newcastle - but you would have to enter an abattoir to find out more
  4. She came along to Settle last year, but nobody there could turn her on
  5. A search in Companies House shows the two directors of BioShield Distribution are Anna Grochowalska and Valerio Laghezza. Both of them appear to have been involved previously in a business called Immortalis, which sells a dietary supplement called Klotho Formula. Its website - rather similar in design to that of the BioShield - says Klotho Formula uses a “proprietary procedure that leads to relativistic time dilation and biological quantum entanglement at the DNA level” Klotho - any relation???
  6. I still have a SOTA record cleaning machine available if anyone is after one.
  7. Pair of Rowen PA-1 monoblocks in black of any interest?
  8. A Winged Victory for the Sullen (odd name for a band, but there you go) have a few albums since this too - worth checking out
  9. For folkies, on Easter Monday: https://www.folkonfoot.com/festival
  10. A lot of musicians are streaming gigs from home during lockdown, and there are some organised festivals too. Let's use this thread to advertise these before we all go mad.
  11. I'm "going" to these gigs at 8.30 each Tuesday evening, broadcast with live commentary and fresh recordings every week through the CV period. Murray Grainger on accordian and Adam Summerhayes on fiddle, producing sparse but beautiful music. Have a listen if you like that sort of thing - the videos get on to Youtube about a day after the live Facebook sessions (search for The Ciderhouse Rebellion and go to videos there). They have done 4 now, all introduced by Jeremy the talking chicken. Buy them a coffee if you like the music.
  12. My comment was largely tongue-in-cheek. However, of the 30,000 ordered it seems that 10,000 are the Dyson ones, which are a new design, as yet unapproved, unbuilt and untested. Most of us on here are male and approaching or in the risky age group so - Just don't catch the virus!!
