5.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic and unpretentious, 31 Oct. 2006
This review is from: When You Come Around (Audio CD)
Not the best of tracks from this highly talented band - but a good intro to what they have to offer and worth persevering to arrive at some really excellent tracks.

Lyrics are simple and to the point and these and the music are well worth listening to.

A great and understated band for those who like the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nico Ladenis - Monster or Genius?, 22 May 2006
This review is from: My Gastronomy (Hardcover)
uperlative cooking without a doubt and attention to detail without question. Perhaps too much attention to detail. Stories of embarking on a furious tirade when his customers requested more salt or seasoning were rife in the 1980's when Nico first opened a restaurant - could be wrong but think this was in Battersea, London SW11 before he moved on to the rather grander area of toffs and politicians in London SW1! Totally innovative in his time, Nico perhaps helped to herald the way towards innovative cooking leading to the great chefs of today. He did not have the benefit of the media attention and coverage today enjoyed by those featured on television - but his ideas and talent led the way to the current enormous interest in quality food. Impatient - yes! Monster - perhaps! Genius - yes yes yes!!!
