5.0 out of 5 stars The only shirt you'll ever need, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have three of these (different colours). They are virtually indestructible and smart enough for work wear. The fabric is perfect- Cotton that is tough and wind proof and repels dirt better than most 'technical' fabrics. The shirt is cool in summer- due to some nice ventilation - and warm in winter. The pockets are many but sensible- in the summer you can dump your jacket and carry everything you need. The concealed pockets are good for passport and money- it also looks good enough to wear with a suit jacket. Just don't leave a biro in the pen pocket as I did. WARNING these shirts are very generously sized.

4.0 out of 5 stars Space rock textures, 13 April 2014

More of an EP than an Album- but play it loud and it's Space Rock psychedelia at it's best. Wooden Shjips/Hawkwind/Loop fans will enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Winchester sound?, 13 April 2014

This review is from: Grin (Audio CD)
The best guitar rock album of the year. Hard to categorise- I heard them compared to Neu (some tracks do have a motorik precision) but the guitars have a hint of 'progressive blues' and they are a great live act. The album was produced by 'The Hookworms' and it is a lovely mix. Melodies and hooks abound. 'Post Indie?' Their EP is also great and has the best distorted guitar solo since Robert Fripp's prime.

As recommended by Ray Mears! (UK Survival expert) The fabric is perfect- Cotton that is tough and wind proof and repels dirt better than most 'technical' fabrics. The shirt is cool in summer- due to some nice ventilation - and warm in winter. The pockets are many but sensible- in the summer you can dump your jacket and carry everything you need. The concelaed pockets are good for passport and money- it also looks good enough to wear with a suit jacket. Just don't leave a biro in the pen pocket like I did.

I saw this band supporting 'Drenge' and was immediately moved to buy everything that they've recorded so far. The band has been been cited ad being influenced by 'krautrock' - and it's tempting to conjecture that the track 'Klaus' is a tribute to Klaus Dinger- However there's more progressive blues and Sonic Youth than Neu in the mix. The band already have a fully developed 'sound' and many of the songs have strong melodic structure. The excellent production (by the 'Hookworms') really brings out the subtlety of the three piece. A listen will immediately tell you whether it's your 'cup of tea' but whatever your taste in music- this is a band to watch.

This review is from: Sick Octave (Audio CD)
Best album of the year so far and easily as good as their Mercury Prize nominated debut. What's it like- well it still has the intelligent quirky and self deprecating lyrical edge of earlier music - but reminds me of early Pink Floyd (Barrett Era)in that it mixes smart melodies,a unique Englishness and that special experimental edge that only happens when a band learn to play together and stay together.

5.0 out of 5 stars :), 1 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Iron Man 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Third movies have no right to be this good. I understand the criticisms posed by comic purists ( the adaption of the villain for example) and there are definitely some silly bits , but with dialogue like this I found it hard to care.

Don't forget to wait till after the credits!

2.0 out of 5 stars Give it a year, 27 Mar. 2013
The Tunnel itself is well constructed and well priced- but in my experience the covers last only a year before sunlight degrades them into a brittle spider's web.

In the long run you'd be better off with a glazed greenhouse- or a professional polytunnel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good- but NOT 'HD', 25 Aug. 2012
A nicely designed VGA webcam with an articulated stalk making it suitable for
Skyping, animation and rostrum work- BUT it's NOT 'HD'in the 2012 sense (eg 720 or 1080)

The spec is about three years out of date.

This isn't clear in the technical details given and at £40 it's a reasonable expectation
that it comes with at least 720.

Sadly had to send it back.
