Hi
For some time this site has been quiet especially during the summer months and it's nice to have some new blood and many interesting discussions about Johns music. smile

Listening-they were listening

Regards
Peter

Does anybody know if Goldfrapp have ever cited John as an influence?

The whistling section in the middle of "Twilight's Last Gleaming" reminds me of their first album. Plus, given the style of their second album, I'd be surprised if there wasn't some Foxx influence somewhere!

I agree Peter! It's so good to meet so many genuine and passionate fans of John's music. It's sometimes just nice to be able to shout about a particular song or album that you're into and have likeminded people agree!

I've had a few unpleasant experiences on forums - I tried to join a David Bowie forum not long back - oh dear. Those people allegedly call themselves 'fans'...

Anyway, no time wasters here so it seems, so that's a bonus!

Hi Alex
I agree with 110%. I think the one advantage of this forum is it is quite small, so you can get to know users in a more friendly manner. I've seen other fan forums for other groups and the list of users runs into 1000's. I also like the personnel avatars. It puts peoples faces to names. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />
regards
Peter

Actually this isn't an avatar.

But, then again, I'm a seriously long-term Mac user.

Ho hum.

Come on Mrs. X, It's Christmas, let that be your gift to us all - I'm too vain to let any picture I have at the moment be posted - I always either look drunk or like a convict so you have nothing to fear! Paul

Fetishists? Did you say fetishists?? I'll wear a blindfold and dog collar then! Ha! Ha! Ha! eek

Oh, you said ski-wear fetishists! OK, in that case I'll find some ski goggles and a touque (for you non-Canadians, that's a wool winter hat). Actually I might have a ballaclava somewhere, or I could just cut holes in an old touque. :p

Not now. My hair is a public embarrassment. It needs a cut and a new dye job. smile Soon, I hope! Getting back to wearing a hat, I don't have one with a wide enough brim to hide my face. smile
