Dodgy 'video' but world class song. If you've never heard it, do yourself a favour. If not, regret it at leisure.

Pure pop genius, and the opening track of the wonderful Something/Anything? album.

I just cashed in last year's unused holiday allowance, so a second tranche of turntable upgrades is on its way. :)

So I've just heard this for the first time now

Isn't it magnificent?

I may have it played at my funeral as a singalong.

Welsh singer with a song about a Welsh warrior. Can't blame you for liking it. You're coming on.

Just for Wolford, who won't need the translation.

Never liked it myself. the lyrics basically harp on about the fact that 1600 years after the Romans left, the Welsh are still here.

No mention of having achieved anything in the meantime. That's because 90% of all the achievements were in South Wales. The song was written as an anthem for Plaid Cymru by a Plaid Cymru politician when the party got few votes in the industrial south.

These days,of course, Plaid's launched a charm offensive in the South and has paid a terrible price by ending up with Leanne Wood as its leader.

I've lived in Bradford for forty odd years and if all I could say about my contribution to the city and community was "I'm still here", I might as well move house to somewhere inside the ring road.

I was introduced to these at work today, funny

Legends, the Pots.

There's some smashing youtube footage of them playing Glastonbury. Great fun, daft as brushes and everyone joining in the fun. I'll try and dig it out.

I was surprised that their brilliant Beer Olympics song didn't go viral before London 2012.

They've got a limited appeal but they are great entertainment. They claim to be from St Helens but their accents are east Lancs (Accrington?), so I don't get that bit, but hey...

Someone I work with in Westhoughton sounds exactly like the lead singer, and I mean exactly. I think he's from Wigan.

After some unexpected delay, the second part of my turntable upgrade* has arrived! :)

*A replacement bearing and subplatter, which should bring improvements.

Is it a Rega by any chance ?

It is a NAD 533 - so a Rega with a different badge on it, yes.

There are some good reviews of the IsoKinetik ISOsub upgrade sub platters on the net you can get them with a ruby bearing as an extra. Regas are so easy to upgrade, have you seen the new Rega RP8 ?

The RP8 looks great, although well out of my financial league.

The ISOsub is what I ordered, although supply problems from IsoKinetik meant that the shop offered me the one with ceramic bearing and a refund of the difference as they'd received stock wrongly badged as having the ruby bearing.

It's quite well thought-out - as well as simple, clear instructions, you get a bit of dowel with a magnet on the end to extract the original (metal) bearing, an alcohol swab to clean the subplatter axle and a bottle of oil with a pipette.

It's recommended that you leave it running for 24 hours to bed in, so that's what it's doing right now, ready for when I get home this evening.
