5.0 out of 5 stars Hammond Beat, Bash & indeed Boogaloo, 2 Dec 2009
This review is from: Do The Ton (MP3 Download)
If you like your 60's garage with a large portion of Hammond Organ - it doesn't get much better than this!

The Stags have captured the spirit of those times and indeed this is an impressive debut. Loosely based on a concept of the " Ton Up Boys" on their Nortons and Triumphs this album takes you on a journey that starts with a theme tune to get you warmed up and finishes with the sound of a bike trailing into the distance.

With some tight four on the floor pop songs like "Hotdog" and "Can't Stop the Want" to the dirty groove of the "Texas Cave Salamander", the journey is at times wild, fast but ultimately satisfying.

Pop a wheelie and download this little gem, you won't fall off!

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 20 Oct 2008
This review is from: The End Of Mr. Y (Paperback)
Trying to replicate a fantastic recipe you saw on the telly and forgetting to put the oven on is similair to how I felt at the end of this.

It promised so much but failed to deliver - I was waiting for the good bit to happen and it never came. The characters are distinctly unlikeable and the plot inplausible. It felt like a set text from A Level English Lit. whereby there would be an awful lot to discuss but nobody would have the nuts to say it wasn't enjoyable.

I only stuck with it to see if there was a fantastic twist at the end - but there wasn't.

Extreme caution advised - this is not an easy book.

This review is from: Diesels on the Eastern (Hardcover)
This is the greatest work of non-fiction I have ever read. You can forget any other works on the Eastern Diesels, don't even entertain them. When it comes to this subject these two have it nailed on. A must read for any Eastern Diesel fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking!, 27 Jun 2007
This review is from: Creative Zen V+ 4GB (Electronics)
Lovely little thing albeit compared to an iPod it feels a bit cheap.

Sound reproduction is excellent and its really easy to use. I have put the equivalent of 20 albums on it and its used less than 1G of memory.

Copying your CD's across to it is so easy. I can't believe I waited so long!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Banks Shows No Sign Of Going Overdrawn, 23 Jan 2002
First of all the plot in this excellent novel is not a comfortable one and although the book is easy to get into it will no doubt not suit everyone. Acting Superintendant Alan Banks is having a pretty tough time at this point in his life. His wife is divorcing him, his kids are grown up and his current love interest is akin to catching a bar of soap in the bath. He is managing an investigation into the Chameleon Killer with little success and the world rests weary on his shoulders. However a chance call to a domestic disturbance starts to unravel the disappearances of the missing teenage girls and Banks ends up with his most traumatic case to date.
For those unfamiliar with this wonderful character this would not be the worst place to start as the novel not only refers back to previous cases (novels) and happier times but perhaps for the first time in this series we spend most of the time with Banks and see what the stresses of the job are doing and indeed have done to him. Peter Robinson has developed Banks so much over the past 15 years that as in real life the man who investigated the murders in Gallows View is different to the man who gets to the bottom of it all by the end of Aftermath. If you like your thrillers to have depth and to be pacy, full of twists with real life locations then I cannot recommend this novel enough. Stick with it because the surprise is bound to get you.
