New JVD Archery Taper Tool for Wooden Arrows (5/16inch)
New JVD Archery Taper Tool for Wooden Arrows (5/16inch)
Offered by Red Frog International Ltd

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 16 May 2016

So...it's a big pencil sharpener for tapering your arrows. Works OK, as I've already re-pointed several of my broken arrow with it. As long as you get the right size I can't think how you can go wrong, really

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I'd hoped from some reviews, 16 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fine album, and enjoyed the DVD, too. Warning fro those easily offended that the F word appears twice in the first track. Probably not first on everyone's Kt shopping list, but a decent addition nonetheless


Sentinel & The Fools of the Finest Degree
Sentinel & The Fools of the Finest Degree
Price: £14.35

5.0 out of 5 stars A musical gem, 16 May 2016
Stonkingly good album. Strident in places, atmospheric in others. Beautiful acoustic guitar work. Despite some of the 80's ecological themes, it's slightly unusual and unique style means it hasn't dated as much as some rock/prog rock from this era.

4.0 out of 5 stars One classic, and one finding it's feet, 4 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The second album, Firsing on all six, is total class. The first album feels a little tired and derivative by comparisson, with a few truly dodgy lyrics, but it's heart is in the right place and it pretty listenable. Together they are a stong package

To my ear, this is more musically inventive than the UPF album (which felt abit like Unitopia out-takes for me). Good song writing. Yes, it's a tad loud in places, but the instrumental side is excellent and the singer has a very good voice. All in all, pleasantly surpised

I'm not sure whet I expected really, apart from it being similar to Vinegar Joe. There are good moment and good performances, but as a whole the sound and writing had dated badly. Very rock musical in feel. If you're an Elkie Brooks 'completest' then you should probably buy it. If you're looking for a 'lost' Vinegar Joe album, then I'd probably save your pennies?

Recommended to me (and they were right), so I'm recommending it to you! If you like Mostly Autumn and Panic Room then it's no-brainer, really.

4.0 out of 5 stars After, or before their time?, 12 April 2016
This review is from: Indians in Moscow (Audio CD)
Saw this bunch live back in the day, at Hull Truck Theatre after hearing John Peel play their excellent synth-driven title track. some of it is very 80's post punk but there's also some very sophisticated, grown-up material too (the track about Howard Hughes is particularly strong). The singer was excellent and if you like the playfulness. energy and inventiveness of bands like Shakespeare's Sister and The Cure, than you should check them out. Should have made it bigger in my opinon

4.0 out of 5 stars Melodic and easygoing, 8 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Tarka (Audio CD)
Rather wonderful and evocative little gem from the late 1980's. Possibly a failed movie soundtrack from the film of the book, this will appeal to all those who find pleasure in semi orchestral pieces (like Roger Glover's Elements) and extended instrumental albums (Oldfield's Tubular Bells, or Rob Reed's Sanctuary). Very pleasant and withstands multiple playing over the years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice!, 27 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Liberman (Audio CD)
I already owned her first two albums and as much as I like them, thy can sound a bit 'samey' when Vanessa's vocals are a full tilt all the time (and she can have that little bit nasal, sarcastic edge to her singing voice). I was toying with the idea of buying another of her albums, and was heartened to hear the reviews of this one saying it was very different. How true! Though there is a smattering of her trademark rolling piano, this, in many places, sounds like a completely different artist! The album is nice, in the nicest sense of the word. Confident, dreamy and evocative. I much prefer Vanessa voice when she sings in this style, as she has many more tones to her voice when she's not trying to out-sing her piano! Only played it three times but already love it.
