Re: Best cover version - ever!

The best cover ever is Alex Chilton's version of 'Boogie Shoes', with Elvis Costello's version of 'I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down' a close second.

Re: Julian Richer hands over control to his staff

Apart from cables, I've mostly bought DVD players and VHS players from Richer Sounds. I remember when their first shop opened, near London Bridge. It was a startling contrast to the Sound Organisation shop just up the road.

piss take is fine lies are not.
Surely the whole point of Foo Fight (as with most satire) is that it's based on an exaggerated version of reality, and so by its very nature isn't true. An entirely truthful Foo Fight wouldn't be funny.

Re: Hi-Fi Blogs

The only one I read is HiFi Foo Fight. Indeed, I'm not aware of the existence of any others.

Did you just assume our genders?!
Depends. Are you one of the 90% or one of the 10%?

Re: Political Correctness

I'd guess it's a fairly safe bet that 90% of forum members are white, heterosexual, middle-aged men, who are only offended at 'PC gorn mad' and can't understand how anyone not white, male and heterosexual could possibly be offended by racism, sexism or homophobia.
