A salve to the “What don’t you get” thread.
Post things here that deserve more love.
Can be music related or not.
Here’s a few to get things rolling
The Style Council
warm fruit toast with too much butter
Oversized shower heads with excellent water pressure
Progressive rock. It was never embarrassing wankery, it was always amazing.
German wine. I’ve been meaning to start a wine thread on this forum. It’s getting more exposure, but rieslings and pinot noir from Germany are some of the loveliest and best deals in wine. The freshness, acidity, and complexity can’t be beat. And at 10% ABV on some of the rieslings you can have a bit without getting smashed.

Starting to enter a nicer slice of the Anthropocene wherein Australian growers/winemakers are less likely to produce super sweet rieslings, so you can now roll the dice on an untested riesling and there’s a decent chance it’ll be snappy/crisp. Same thing with chenin blanc, chance at something minerally and interesting rather than sickly sweet.
While we’re here: Gewürztraminer.
Because hot weather* is coming for some (+30celcius) : Beer and sparkling water is a fantastic dry non-bad decision encouraging beverage in the heat. more specifically Hefeweizen or Weissbier/ Whitbeer.

Me. I’ve always felt that I lack the recongnition I deserve. Always.
Also, humility. That seems to be rare these days…
Plastic cover and inner sleeve on vinyl.
Even on CD.
by hot weather in the UK, you mean 18c?
Oh yes this, best thing we ever did install pressurised hot water system, that and high count cotton sheets, like being in a posh hotel everyday.
Listening to the rain
Walking aimlessly with headphones on
Walking aimlessly with no headphones on
The Monk and Mulligan album
Going to museums at off hours
Swimming in the cold
Naughty By Nature
Pizza in New Jersey
New York Mexican food
Gbo and Double R tapes
The poetry of Bob Kaufman
Long Island’s beaches
Moebius and other French comic artists (Druillet, Caza, etc.)
The early works of Jonathan Lethem
“Dizzy in Greece”
the Coyote guys as DJs. smacking out the Italian house and heavy balearics since their inception and doing a much better job of it than the majority of newcomers to the sound.
Agree. I have had some tho that have been overly sweet.
I think we need a wine thread. Just picked up some cheap nuggets from Aldi.
