A quick shout out to Mattias for inspiring this thread!

We wanted to provide you guys with a little off topic area where you can discuss things that might not fit into any of the general artist/album/song contest threads, so voila magic.gif

We generally do have quite a minimal, streamlined look in this part of the site but feel free to run with whatever you want in here (within reason kink.gif). You can also direct any questions to us mods here too if you don't fancy dropping us a pm, we'll keep it pinned so it's always a direct access point and won't get lost amongst other topics etc

So let's kick this off with a bit of end of year discussion eh? What are you guys wanting to see, I'll drop a couple of spoilers here that we are planning some end of year awards for some of the best indie, rock and alternative stuff 2017 has brought us ohmy.gif we're also probably going to run a big Unknown Pleasures vs Nuggets song contest before the year is out, is that something you'd be interest in? angel.gif

This sounds good! Are you in a position to say any more? ;o I'm intrigued!

And yeah, I think this thread is better than the one I made on impulse, this way it can be anything at all rly (within reason) and not just about song contests like I had in mind.

Listening to the new Wild Beasts song. It sounds great! Shame they're splitting up soon.

Good idea. Is this inspired by my 'Darius Lounge' thread btw on the Retro Lounge?

I hadn't really delved into their albums before (probably should give Two Dancers a listen at least) but they had some quality singles- All the King's Men, We Still Got the Taste and 2014's Wanderlust of course!

No. x

But a similar idea I guess in that they're both general discussions about specific topics. laugh.gif

Nope, like I said in the first post, this stemmed from Mattias' song contest one!

Hmmm I don't see why I can't share what we've got in mind for UP vs Nuggets so far. We don't have any dates as of yet but we're keen to get it going asap so it will defo happen over the next month or two I think, we just need to work out when suits in terms of is it gonna clash with BJSC or Lounge things etc as the site tends to have a lot going on at towards the end of the year.

It's going to be mod hosted and set up pretty much like BJSC, one of us will take the UP semi, another the Nuggets one and then the other the final. Obviously there's a lot more UP entries compared to Nuggets so what we're thinking is having all 25 up winners in one semi and then the top 3 from the 9 nuggets contests. That makes it slightly uneven actually so maybe we'll have a poll or something, or compare points from previous contests to see which two runners up from UP we can add in, idk there's still some details to work out kink.gif then we'll have a final of maybe 30 songs, 15 from each (again a detail we need to work out) but it should be good and hopefully spark some interest in here again.

ooooh that sounds cool! It was honestly kind of a little dream of mine to have a contest similar to that (hence me mentioning it in that previous thread etc), to kinda celebrate old winners / other entries of all the past contests! I've always wanted to go back and hear the stuff I've not heard from these contests, one day I decided to listen to all the Nuggets winners that I didn't know at least. So thank you for running it! x

The only Beasts album I remember listening to the whole of is their recent one Boy King. The album was pretty good
I do have Two Dancers and Smother on CD, both of which I have yet to listen to. I also have Assembly on 7"
Favourite Beasts songs: Hooting And Howling, Wanderlust, Reach A Bit Further, A Simple Beautiful Truth, Get My Bang, Alpha Female, We Still Got The Taste Dancing On Our Tongues, Empty Nest

I like the idea of this UP vs. Nuggets thing *.* (and yay for more than just the winners from Nuggets being included as I'd otherwise have no representation in it lol)
