    Wine night....sigh!

    Chris De Burgh - The Getaway
    Ray LaMontagne - Til the Sun Turns Black
    Paul Weller - Modern Classics : The Greatest Hits

    It's a worry when Chris De Burgh was the most exciting thing early doors -

    What a drag - the missuses choice tonight (and usually she has a good mix of stuff ), started with Chris De Burgh, it was okay (strangely bits reminded me of Magnum!!!!) - got to the song Borderline about a guy going to war and leaving his wife or g/f behind, and the missus got choked up about the lyrics. Meanwhile I'm listening nonplussed swinging my bottle of beer about like I'm still trying to avoid paying the ferryman - whilst the better half in an emotional state not impressed! So a few songs later and a similar feel to a song cropped up and I said "what's this one about? A guy going to war and leaving his tortoise????" better half in a potentially violent state not impressed (again)! Said since I took the mickey out of her stuff she would do the same to my choice - not overly bothered BUT to double trick her got Ray La Montagne -she loves it, it's my CD so checkmate or so I thought - no taking the p*ss outta me! It's a good album for the first 3 or 4 songs then it gets excruciatingly dull (checkmate lost) . I'm gritting my teeth and finally open my bottle of wine having drunk a couple of beers, CD gets played to the end.

    So now the missus has her choice - oh joy- upon joy - Paul Weller - greatest hits, now with that title I'm thinking this MUST be a short album, but no - it has so many greatest hits on that no f*cker has ever heard it makes Don Henley's greatest hits album look almost valid in it's claim to the title. Each song runs into the next - each sounding the same, variations on a theme, nice production, kinda 60's - 70's retro vibe brought up to date trying so hard to be valid but just bland, bland, bland - style over substance . How can an album that lasts about 60 minutes actually feel like it has taken up two thirds my life!!!!
    Then a light - the missus decides she is gonna turn in, tired and worn out (who wouldn't be after putting up with what has gone on before).
    As soon as she's out of the room and with two thirds of a bottle of wine and one third of my life still left I grabbed:-

    Motorhead - Ace of Spades - had to hear the song just to break out of the malaise, kept the album on up to "Live to Win" (love that song!).
    Next skipped through the four Gamma albums picking fave tracks.
    Followed by choice tracks from - Riot, Warrior, Ratt, Warrant, Styx, Gowan, T-Ride, Celtic Frost, Burzum and strangely finishing with The Gentlemen (the track This is Where a nice end to the evening.

    I feel that there should be a moral to this story but alas there isn't.

    Nick, you've made my day with that recounting of wine night!

    I am TOTALLY with you. Early Chris De Burgh is actually OK. Nothing to get too excited about, but many years ago when a mate insisted on playing his stuff to me, I was pleasantly surprised... but not enough to actually have any of it myself!

    Ray La Montagne - meh(ish)

    But Paul Weller may have to rank near the top of my lists of overrated, overhyped, under delivering artists of al time. Boring, bland, uninspired, unoriginal, I could go on. If anyone is living off a few decent hits pre-his solo career, then, the mod-father is it. He's everything that's wrong with mainstream media music here in the UK. Lauded for writing the same (pretty boring) song for decades and refusing to get a decent haircut.

    Your ear cleaning tunes were also bang on the money!

    I can't wait for the next instalment of wine night!

    Nick, an overview of your wine selection would be good too. I'm a Merlot man myself.

    If it's over £5 a bottle it's gotta be good =) =) =)

    I don't have a set wine, or really know much about it, for me it's a case of I either like it or I don't, irrespective of price or reputation.
    I do like a Primitivo though, yet strangely more often than not don't get one. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon - whatever - always reds and although I think Germany is often associated with white wine the German reds are very, very nice - but generally I'm not bothered where in the world they are from either, although I'm not keen on any of the French reds and tend to avoid them which is probably sacrilege to some folks who know their stuff.
    I went into a wine merchant in Clitheroe, looked through the wines and thought I'd check the ones in the next room - I think the cheapest bottle there was around the £150 mark so I walked out into the cheapo room pretty quickly. You know what it's like though - some one will give me a glass (or two) of a supposed fantastic wine and I think "what's the fuss about - it tastes like a decent £10 bottle from the supermarket!". I also like wines with a little body - light wines are not for me I might as well be drinking blackcurrant juice or Vimto in some cases, I want to know I'm having a wine if you see what I mean.
    I watch programmes on TV about wine every so often and it's like art critics they enthuse about vanilla notes and tasting this that and the other you can taste it comes from such and such a region - then spit it out ! I think a lot is the emperor's new clothes and I also think that these people make jobs for themselves by talking nonsense, which has been proved numerous times in blind tasting sessions - yet people buy into it and it keeps the prices of some substandard wines artificially high due to reputation. Taste and whether I like it or not is the only guide I use, someone saying it is a great wine might be true for them but every person has a different palate so what tastes like an explosion of flavours to one may not to another.
    So price and reputation doesn't come into it with me I'm not a wine snob, I don't know enough about it to be one either!

    Anyway without wine last night I listened to

    The Boyzz - Too Wild to Tame

    and also - although not an album - I'm reading the book - " Nothin' But a Good Time: The Uncensored History of the '80s Hard Rock Explosion" by Tom Beaujour & Richard Bienstock. It's all about the LA Scene when bands like Crue were coming through - it's a really entertaining read getting perspectives from the people who were involved at the time. Hard to put down but you have to sleep at some point!
