Bought as a present for my father who wrecks most items of clothing during his outdoor activties (chopping wood, gardening etc) but these have withstood heavy-duty use in all weathers with no sign of deterioration. These gloves are complete no-frills but all the better for it and the low price, for once, does not reflect low quality. Highly recommended.

OMD fans are a curious bunch with a never-ending weary desire for the band to live in the past and return to the A & M era. Much like those fat, bald, 50-something Gary Numan fans who still wear eyeliner to gigs and wish it was 1979-81, bemoaning that each new release does not sound like The Pleasure Principle.

Whereas History of Modern tried (mostly successfully) to at least aim for the 21st century this latest offering awkwardly finds it's inspiration from 30 years ago. It 's not a bad… Read more
