Philips Shaver Series 3000 with CloseCut Blades an&hellip by Philips
4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Budget Shaver, 22 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm luckily enough to have tried several shavers over the last few years and all of them apart from one (more about that later) have been the rotary variety.

My previous experience with Philips shavers has been good, I used to use a Wet and Dry model daily and was always fairly pleased with the results.

You see, I'm not stupid. Well, I suppose I am, but this sticky back plastic helped me out of a fix. I'll just steel myself for the wrath when my wife eventually… Read more
Diamonds And Emeralds ~ Care
4.0 out of 5 stars Care? You Should, 19 Aug 2014
Back in the late 70s and early 80s when I was at school nearly every record I heard or bought seemed to be a classic. There are many bands over the years who "should have been big" and I think Care firmly into that category. The duo featured two Giants of the Liverpool music scene; Ian Broudie who, of course, went on to form the Lightning Seeds and vocalist Paul Simpson of the Wild Swans.

Care were definitely pop with an edge and a quirkiness. You only have to listen to "Flaming Sword" which I seem to recall was a favourite on nighttime Radio One to appreciate their genius. To be fair, they could both write a tune, so together they were maybe not actually… Read more
