@Abarbarian I saw BABYMETAL live a couple of years ago - they were supporting the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They certainly put on a good show!

@Abarbarian I was aware of the name BabyMetal but had no idea what they were all about, I'm seriously out of touch since giving up that disco lark.

I like them a lot, lots of energy and enthusiasm and atm probably quite unique. Tis probably true about some of the comments like 'Metal for those who like pop' but who cares? Music shouldn't be to get precious about but to enjoy. And I enjoy their stuff, I checked out a few more of their vids including the one with Rob Halford (Judas Priest).

Having run a Rock/Metal disco for 41 years I'm sure if I was still doing that thing I'd be playing their stuff so thanks for the heads up, as our Transatlantic friends are wont to say.

Haven't bought much lately since 'Pulse' then over the weekend bought these two.

The Oh Sees' Smote Reverser, double clear vinyl 45rpm and D.I.P.Presents The Upsetters which is basically a Lee Perry showcase from a certain time in his career.

For me The Oh Sees, so far, are the band of the decade, breath of fresh air.

And Lee Perry is just plain nutty. And kinda lovable.

Oh Sees came from Reckless Records in Berwick Street and The Upsetters from Greenwich Clocktower weekend market.

I'm planning a 90s party for NYE, so I've been listening to a lot of 90s music recently...

My own personal view is that the best decades for music (so far) have been the sixties and the nineties.

Running a mobile disco as I was through the nineties, couldn't go wrong for dance music, the tunes released at that time made life easy for me. Hope the party goes well Becky :dance:

Thanks! :D The music is always the best part of the planning! Like you say, there's a lot of good stuff to pick from, and it's so nostalgic for us 30-somethings.
