Dvd ~ Phil Daniels
Price: £3.94

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute classic, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quadrophenia [DVD] [1979] (DVD)
A fantastic music experience from The Who and a modern day classic. Spot the stars; Phil Daniels, Sting, Ray Winstone, Lesley Ash, Toyah, Michael Elphick and more. A great storyline catapulting you back to the 1960s. the Mods v Rockers, the rivalry and the sight of those shiny mirror-laden scooters. Fantastic music from one of the best bands in the world, FANTASTIC.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very happy recipient, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as a present for a very very happy recipient. The knife set is not only an unusual and attractive looking set, it is also a very practical and nice weighted cutting set. Only time will time about the longevity of the knives but that would be the same for any set?

5.0 out of 5 stars We Are The Mods!, 20 Dec 2013

This review is from: Quadrophenia (Audio CD)
Just lie back, close your eyes and relive the film in your mind's eye, excellent. A fine selection of Who tracks complimented with a few special tracks from the film by other artists. Picture Jimmy (Phil Daniels) and Steph (Lesley Ash) and the rest of the Quadrophenia crew enjoying being mods, it'll bring a smile to your face, guaranteed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Madness at the movies, 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Filmed at the height of Madness's success in the early 80s, this raw and amateurish look at the Madness early days gives a good feel to life in London way back then. The soundtrack is absolutely fantastic and Suggs singing 'See You Later Alligator' is a must. The band were/are obviously not actors and at times they appear quite wooden and staged but this was filmed 30 years ago. Take a trip back in time and share a couple of laughs with those nutty North London boys. My favourite bit has got to be the London Underground scene, doing something that every 40 something would love to have done, fighting with light-sabres (Star Wars has a lot to answer for). Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Goodnight, 20 Dec 2013

This review is from: Goodnight Sweetheart (Audio CD)
Being a big fan of the TV series led me to buy this compilation and I must admit to b e very disappointed with the compilation. There were only a couple of tracks worthy of a second listen and the dirge-like selection did little for me. Perhaps best suited as piped-music in a retirement home?

5.0 out of 5 stars Nutty beer, oh the gladness of it, 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well what more can you say, a combination of a pleasant beer fully endorsed by the Maddest Band In All The World. Comes in a secure carry case, with glass, and goes down a real treat. Well done Growler and well done Madness. hic! hic! hic!

An excellent compilation especially for the USA market. If you're a bit tired of the same-old tracks on Madness compilations then grab hold of a copy of this treasure, you'll definitely not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meerkat Magic, 20 Dec 2013

Bought as a Christmas present and looks very nice for all those meerkat lovers out there. Very good quality casting and giving the desired affect of being almost bronze-like in looks and feel. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and pleasant surprise, 26 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must admit that I approached this purchase with some caution and was initially attracted by the fact that it was a collaboration by Lee Thompson, yee of Madness saxophone fame.

The album name was intriguing and the collaboration name equally so.

HOWEVER, I've not stopped listening to it since I bought it, EXCELLENT and exactly what you'd imagine a 'ska orchestra' to be.

If you like reggae and ska then you'll love this album.
