Ace. I liked it about 1.40 in where it looked as if Northampton had it's own Lloyds building / Pompidou centre, but then I think it turned out to actually be footage of a chemical works.


It does go into quite a bit of detail about Northampton towards the end there though.


I wonder if Linda is related to Luis Jardim. He tends to do a lot of the percussion work for Speccy Trev.

I love the internet. John Peel used to play the other side of this track occasionally - "50 miles by road or rail" - but I never thought I'd be able to hear it again.

Psycho-geographers. It sounds awful. I missed it unfortunately, or perhaps, fortunately. Did I miss anything?

Dunno - I forgot all about it. I think I read a short story by Ian Sinclair once and didn't understand it so I'm not most enthusiastic about it.

i've been re-reading my com, er graphic novels and have re-read league....century:1910. i wanted to find out when the next one is out, and came across this on wikipedia:

[6][/url][/sup] — during the psychedelic era of swinging london during 1969, with the league now reduced to "just three members." [7] moore's 1969 "is a place where tadukic acid diethylamide 26 is the drug of choice, and where different underworlds are starting to overlap dangerously to an accompaniment of sit-ins and sitars." [8] the setting "partly revolves around a free rock concert in hyde park," [9] , and sees the league encountering jerry cornelius (last seen in the black dossier) [6] and will address (and redress) his contention that "[while everyone knows about the brilliant psychedelic underground of the time... the occult renewal is less well known."[sup][url=" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/the_league_of_extr...ury#cite_note-word-9 "][10][/url][/sup] looking "at the crossover of swinging london, dodgy satanism and organised crime," [10] the second episode will see the interaction between gangsters, counter-culture personalties and pop-stars, as mina murray and the dwindling league engage with the " hippy and criminal subculture, as well as the twilight world of its occultists" attempting to prevent the rise of the antichrist . [8]

so i've got to wait until 2011 for it, and then it appears that it's going to be like a bit shit. is it heresy to ask if the guvnor's disappearing up his own harris?

Unfortunately Kev O'Neill can't just magic up the artwork. He's always been a slower, meticulous, artist. Combine that with having to wade through Moore's weighty scripts and it's gonna take a while - although it's been delayed so much. Dunno if that means O'Neill's had health problems or perhaps he's had to take on other work to pay the bills in the meantime.


It [Paint it Black] does sound a ... lacking in the appeal of the earlier works but I guess the proof of the pudding will be in the eating. I hope it's something that can still be enjoyed without the encyclopaedic knowledge of 19th and 20th century fiction possessed by the Northampton Weird Beard.


If you're after some less impenetrable Moore, they've recently re-issued the TPB of Moore's run on Captain Britain, if you don't have it already. There's the £50 omnibus, or there the £15 Captain Britain Vol 4: The Siege of Camelot, which reprints most, if not all, the same material.

Either I'm back on the crack, or Alan Moore was on the Simpsons the other day.
