    A reminder that our Big Christmas Quiz is still available either from the Shrimpers Bar on match days or via the Trust shop - just £1 to buy (plus a bit to cover postage if ordering from the shop). We'll be up in the corporate areas on Saturday selling them if anyone's interested...
  2. Itunes

    My Itunes has done something odd - all artists that start with "The" (Jam/Beatles etc) have become jumbled up seemingly randomly amongst the rest of the music. Annoying when I want to find a particular "The" band (such as The Band). It's ported the issue onto my Ipod too. Any idea how to put...

  5. Best English city for music

    What city has produced the greatest English bands & artists. I love The Beatles, but for me it has to be Manchester - The Smiths, Roses, Happy Mondays, New Order....etc etc. Thoughts?
  6. Court artists

    They are generally terrible, but my god this takes the biscuit surely? Michael Scumbag who murdered Lee Rigby - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22713349 They've drawn him like the golly (ooer racist) from the jam jars. Just awful!
  7. Euro-Shrimpervision nomination thread.

    Nominations please. I think 16 may be pushing it, so we'll start with 8. Nominate a country and then provide evidence orf artists from that country. No UK (as we're the best obviously) and to even out the playing field that palindromic band from Sweden are banned and whoever picks Sweden will...
  8. European music artists of any worth.

    Lets face it, most music from our European neighbours is dismal, so let's start a list of those bands/artists who's musical output is worthy of a spot for ShrimperZone's musical fascists :winking: Sweden - Abba, Wannadies, The Knife. France - Les Negresses Verte, Daft Punk. Iceland -...
  9. This is a local battle for local people

    The local(ish) bands. Pick a band/singer who at least one member was born within 20 miles of the Essex Riveria. Essex only please, so no Rolling Stones who hail from Kent. Artists that currently come to mind are; Dr Feelgood Depeche Mode Yazoo Alison Moyet Kursaal Flyers My Life Story A...

  13. Crawliano


    OK, so I ain't got a clue how it works, but I've started a tumblr dedicated to the second best songs by bands/artists who really are known for "that" song they did. I've got the ball rolling with Big Audio Dynamite, I'm sure once I've got the hang of it, it'll look better, but right now, I'm a...

    Just come across this article: http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/2010/how-much-do-music-artists-earn-online/ Interesting to see how it 'pays' to be independent but equally there is a huge amount of work involved. You can see how artists need to earn from touring and merch to actually just...

    Things I will really miss about record shops

    Because, let's face it, they're all going to shut, aren't they? The thing I will miss most is that random chance discovery. I actually don't mind being able to buy & download music as and when I want it and think it's largely great. But I've had so many great trips to record shops where I've...

    Now as I said in the other "happy birthday" thread, Elvis Presley is one of my all time favourite artists (**** you Public Enemy and Wonderstuff). So if, like me, you have exquisite taste in music, what is you favourite Elvis tune from my poll selection.
