Listened all the way through Todd Rundgren's magnum opus 'Something/Anything?' Just superb.

Then followed it up with Bobby Womack & Damon Albarn in session of French radio. Pretty much unlistenable - I managed two-and-a-bit songs and gave up. To restore my faith in the guy, I played side 1 of Bobby's classic album 'The Poet'. So, SO much better.

Out of interest why was it unlistenable?

For a start, it was very sloppy, vocally and instrumentally. But the songs I managed to listen through were lousy, too.

I'm a big fan of his album 'The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady'.

Because, y'know, Natalie Merchant ...



Goosebumps every time I hear her sing live. In My Tribe is a timeless album and remains in my top three of all time. A stunning, jaw-dropping talent.

See you Damon Albarn and raise you Duffy's second album ... now that is truly unlistenable, whereas her first one was fantastic.

Ullman preparing for the Quo reunion tour by the look of things....

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

I didn't know they'd split :o

Whatever, it's a long time since they did anything as good as that.

The proper Quo are touring next year. Rossi, Parfitt, Lancaster and Coghlan. Could be worth catching.

Even John Coghlan? When did he last play with the band?
