  1. I just popped in, like some others it would seem, to reminisce about Suadum but it's really nice to see a few familiar names back here again. Seeing Flashermac up there took me back to the first gatherings I attended with the veterans of soc.culture.thai and then on to asfo and the first 'convention' (there were 3 of us) before all that really took off and every weekend became party time. Nanaplaza, Nanapong ...... we were truly blessed. I was doing OK in Bangkok before all that, working with a couple of old hands who led me into a lot of trouble! The internet took things to a totally different level though, met some of the finest people I've ever met and made some of the best mates I could wish for. Marvellous times, jumpers for goalposts .........
  2. Were you around in Bangkok when Pearl Jam played in Hua Mark Stadium, with Mudhoney supporting? What a night! We weren't exactly spoilt for choice in those days but there were some very special evenings. I'm thinking of Bjork, during the visit when she beat up the news reporter, Manic Street Preachers and Radiohead in the top floor of MBK, maybe even in successive weeks, and a triple header of Foo Fighters, Sonic Youth and the Beastie Boys, again at Hua Mark.
  3. Hands off Taylor! https://www.ladbible.com/entertainment/latest-taylor-swift-rips-into-blurs-damon-albarn-for-songwriter-comments-20220124?source=facebookstories I do like a lot of her stuff, tbh, especially the recent albums with people like Bon Iver and The National involved.
  4. Amazing website. Recreate your time in Thailand, or anywhere else. https://radiooooo.com/
  5. Heretic! One of my favourite live performers, and I really don't think he takes himself too seriously. Seen him twice a few months ago with Warren Ellis which was very different. Last time I saw him with the Bad Seeds (and Kylie!) was one of my all-time Top 5 performances, up there with The Who at the Oval in 1971, Neil Young & Crazy Horse at Fuji Rock in 2002 and Bowie with the Spiders in Newcastle in 1972, before Ziggy was released. Great band, much missed, although Robert Forster still tours here from time to time.
