Heavy Trash are Jon Spencer & Matt Verta Ray doing rockabilly/psychobilly. The result is potent: stand out tracks are Outside Chance, Double Line and They were Kings (a personal favourite to shout along at) but the star of the show is That ain't right - which could easily grace any Johnny Cash album (in fact unaware listeners have assumed it was Cash ...)

Don't ask me why this isn't any longer available - it was released in 2007 and Heavy Trash are still an active touring band ...

I bought and read this on a whim - it's not really my usual choice of book but I wanted to try something different. That was a good move - the book has a wonderful story lurking in its core which is really about two parents both failing to really support their wonderful (if infuriating) son - who has Aspergers (but also seems to be a maths prodigy - not that most children with Aspergers do). I'm usually quite a slow reader - I tend to read a few pages before drifting off to sleep but finished this in one day (and maybe 4 sittings). It's a very fast read but at the end I genuinely cared about all the protagonists (including the flaws of both parents).

Very recommended… Read more

I bought one (XXL - I'm a 46 inch chest but usually find shirts to be like tents since i don't have a big beer gut (yet)) and it fit great - I bought it for causal work and hanging around but it's smart enough for me to wear under a jacket last week when I went out with the wife (and found my best shirt unwashed) so for the price - after three washes still seems as good as new and not faded at all. totally recommended.
