It wasn't being played in the shop, but I took a note of the track listing at the back, which had the trac...

Deflektor

Love the way Ben keeps them in all suspense to do "Dayo dayo" right near the end. Deflektor just isn't the same without it really (ahem!)

And, I should add, even doing an impersonation of those drums in that tune, hehe. Wish I'd recorded that now! Visa Roster we certainly weren't, but it was good fun :)

I think I can beat the lot of them. This CD was so bad that I reviewed it on my website especially to pour scorn on it...

Re: Authorship of 8bit game tunes

In terms of authorship and composer rights, on 8-bit machines, they're often clearly defined. Because of the fact that the same game could appear on various 8-bit formats, the author of the tune is normally the one who arranged it for that particular machine, because they will have had to do all the...

Please. Can someone do the honours and do it quickly? City are degenerating quickly and it's all down to that Scummer of an ex-Red. Bah.

Re: RIP Neal Heffti

I had the CD too: Power Cuts sale, right Dan?

It was pretty sad actually, as my formative years of watching breakfast television always had the old 1960s TV series, and plenty of "oof" "biff" and "zok!" along the way with that classic theme tune...

Re: Depeche Mode

Meh. They're only playing the O2 Arena in that London. Double meh.

Can I bring my photocamera to make some pictures and movies? As Ziphoid said, it's encouraged. The more mementos of the event, the better as far as I'm concerned.

You can tell it's the start of the football season when Jeff Stelling on Gilette Soccer Saturday comes up with gems like this:
