5.0 out of 5 stars Bernard Sumner's Sailor Short's., 19 Sept. 2014
Thanks Bernard, Great read...lot's of declassified dis-information!! lots of witty asides and pure Northen Cobblers! sepecially like the story about the farmhouse, the looney with the plank of wood, the explosion and Hooky doing a comical Monty python of ...Run Away, Run Away....

Also unlike the previous review, Hooky does get more than a mention, mostly around the time of Sirens when 'Drinkies' and D.J. duties were more than a conflict with the band....Anyway read it and You'll see.

I've been a New Order fan since, well... at the tender age of 13 Beckie Bondage's brother Matt played me Unknown Pleasures...the rest is my history....i'm never taking sides either...This Book is Bernards story, each and every New Order fan will of course have their own, and of course so does Hooky, by the way see you in London on the 27th of Sep!..Being a New Order fan this day in time is certainly akin to dividing time between very seperated parents...but with Hooky playing out Joy Divsion and Low Life and Brotherhood in full and New Order newly signed to Mute Records...Being a New Order fan ain't so bad... just hope Barney wins the race to complete a new LP before Ralph Hutter!!!!..And please play more gigs in the UK!! don't really want to wait for the next Jodrell Bank Transmission.

Anyway.. back to the Book...it's a treat ...so treat yourself.

At last, been waiting ages for this little gem!,....before i go on, this title is listed as Region Free, please beware, it is not. Must say got me a tad miffed..Being a film buff iv'e always had a Region free DVD Player..but since the turn of Blu Ray until two days ago not botherd...So.having' Lake placid' display Region invalid!!! had me bouncing off the walls searching for my credit card! so now i'm the owner of a Multi Coded machine [ SONY BD-S1100 ]and i can confirm 'Lake Placid' looks and sounds fantastic, i always thought the DVD looked pretty good... but this Blu Ray eats it's Low Def counterpart for Breakfast...now i can plough into the rest of my small but soon to be ever going pile of Region A disc's!!!.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not blu, 21 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
quick note.....1 star is not for this wonderful little cult gem....rather the supposed blu ray from Germany!!!so calling cult movie fans,remember the direct port of Slipstream from vhs to DVD..[Entertainment in video no less such a massive distributor should have known and done better]....well here is the first ive come across of direct port of DVD to blu ray...lots of crushing and stick your noggin close to your nice HD TV you'll see enough halos to get you into heaven...actully Hell of course, as i was looking foward to a great evening in...once again this has nothing to do with Amazon or the rapid first class seller...just thought fans should know....AVOID.

This review is from: Mechanical Bull (MP3 Download)
Wellcom back "kings of Leon"....majestic and on form! iv'e been a fan for more than a while and this lp hits the spot, "Come around sundown" with bells on!!! with some of the fire of the very first lp....some swagger and world wiseness too...i really like kings of leon they make music for themselves and for fans..NOT for washed up chin stroking criticts....roll on "KINGS OF LEON".

1.0 out of 5 stars Is modern Eletronic dance music dead?, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sasha Involver 3 (Audio CD)
Sasha is one of the most giffted dj/producers ever and i have been folowing him and the Electronic scene for decades, always searching and Sasha delivering that ever elusive perfect beat..be it house,tech-house,minimal..etc..and being the owner of umpteen compilations through the years ive come across some real nuggets.....this i'm affraid is not one of them..sorry Alex!...INVOLVER 1+2..were in the most part wonderfull sound experiments...INVOLVER 3..just plods away like a bad off night from Danny Howells circa 2001..it simply takes you on a colourless journey and is constantly blighted with dreary vocals, Yes there's vocals in INVOLVER 1+2 but never dreary...anyhow dynamic pulsing electronic music and vocals don't mix....Kraftwerk excluded...POO!...Hmm...must admit been away from buying mixes for a while..and if this is the state of the current electronic scene...game over!! by the way i love Danny Howells and his MIAMI mix is a fantastic bench mark...love you too Sasha..but not this sonic puddle of noodle stew. P.S. I know you can take it on the chin..Bernard Summer once told me!! TRUE.

5.0 out of 5 stars well...i'm Terminated!!!., 10 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Must admit, was not expecting too much....and, having owned..the Vhs,the R1 dvd,the R2 DVD,& the US Blu ray,[yes i'm a completest!!] REMASTERD?..you bet Arnie's swinging #### it is.. So good bye huge black verticle scratches on the screen when the Nutty cyborg arrives.. no more pop's'n'blotches...absolutley pristine as Arnolds's shiny steel butt. SO, CALLING ALL TERMINATOR FANS..THIS BLU RAY TERMINATES THE U.S RELEASE AND HAS A REMASTERED PICTURE..BUY ME NOW!!!.... GO ON THEN.
