    Dr Greg notes the passing of Prince and his legacy


    Why we should mourn Prince

    I’m not some crazy besotted fan, but he had an incredible body of work, and like any great artist he had creative ups and downs; I don’t have every album, and some albums had duff tunes on em, even the later stuff, like Diamonds and Pearls, or Come, which were from a period when his 80’s star had begun to wane but the actual songwriting and musicality had matured into just about the funkiest shit on the planet. He never had any more mega–hits after that period, and t...

    Rhett May – musician with heart and soul.



    The extraordinary Mr Rhett May.


    Rhett May owes his rare musical sound and style to the unique environment that he grew up in.
    Born in 1950, in Calcutta, India, and living in an orphanage at age 7, he was immediately immersed in a magical, musical melting pot. Carnatic and Hindustani music and instruments such as the Sitar and Tabla were always providing melody and percussion against a daily backdrop of lifting and soaring voices of Ragas. Ragas especially played a vital part of ...

  • Re: Should our troops be re engaged in Iraq?
    by Isobel Blackthorn
    Iraqi Civil War



    As Iraq breaks down into civil war our Prime Minister is making noises that we may have to take part in an 'allied' resolve to interfere again.

    What do you think?
    I think we should never have taken part first time round. Either the US and its allies are profoundly stupid in that they could not envisage the mayhem they would cause given the initial conditions, or profoundly clever, since last I heard of the $2 Trillion the US spent in Iraq, 90...
