  1. I managed to watch it in the picturehouse when it came out, but it’s available both legally and via nefarious means online. Definitely worth 90 mins of your time.
  2. Looks like he’s been bobbing for apples in Bovril. Someone else can do the Mel B/Bo Selecta thing.
  3. It’s something I’ve been toying with listening to, but I’m not much of an Obama (stop calling him Obama!) fan so I’ve not gone out of my way. Might give it a go because no matter who’s with him, Springsteen’s insight will no doubt be a hook. But if you’re interested in how Springsteen has experience of race issues, I can’t recommend Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption and Rock & Roll enough for your watchlist. It heavily features his story as you’d expect, but focuses on the race issues in Freehold, Asbury Park and other places in the locality in the 60s, 70s and 80s. I won’t spoil it, but
  4. Ignore, misinterpreted Thundie’s post.
  5. Steve Van Zandt. He has the most fascinating face, but dressing like his wardrobe is a lost property bin means he’s always pleasing to look at.
  6. Here’s the original demo. I got it wrong by a year but apparently it was the song to make the producers sit up and take note when he was pitching the first album. Madness it didn’t make it on to Greetings... That’s got the raw feel of Greetings... with the packed words-per-lyric, but some part of me is glad we got it recently with the grand production it needed and deserved.
  7. Watched it the other day, weirdly enough. Each time I do, a different character stands out. It was Mary McDonnell this time; her mannerisms and coyness are so well delivered.
  8. Clarence reversed it into a Tombstone seconds later.
  9. I won’t clog the Song of the Day thread. I know it’s been mentioned in this thread already and I’ve had conversations about it with forum members off here, but FUCKING HELL. Written in 1973 but produced recently, this is something that may one day enter his top ten of all time. And his top ten of all time is the stuff of legend.
  10. Not enough Jimmys for that. Not wasting this month’s ration on that abomination. This country.
  11. Many happy returns, Monk! Made up you’ve had a good day. Birthdays in lockdown must be shite so it’s good to see you had a good one.
  12. Really sorry to read of your loss, @Lorne Malvo. Nans make the world go round so I hope you and the family are doing okay. Comforting for you all to know she passed away in the company of someone who genuinely cared.
  13. I know there's a lot of love for Bruce on here - and rightly fucking so - so let's use this for album/song talk, favourites, rarities, gig memories and anything that pops into our heads. I'll probably write essays in here over the coming weeks when the chat gets going, but for now I'll kick the this off with The Springsteen Code, rather than turn Dev's thread into list-o-mania. Nebraska, Born to Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town, The River, The Ghost of Tom Joad, The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle, Devils & Dust, Born in the U.S.A., Western Stars, Greetings from Asbury Park
