In the workshop of course we have an even broader spectrum of music- Marillion AND Genesis.*
Strange, is that, because by far and away the greatest influence on what music we have in the workshop (mainly because he steals it for our use) is Mike himself...

Well, it wasn't me that added the Marillion demo tracks! I mean, really..?

Always happy to seek out and steal different stuff though, if only people would suggest things.

I listened to a bit of Tarja last night (live in Nottingham, that is!).

Not sure what Mike is on today. First we had about two hours of such old Genesis it was sung by Peter Gabriel in short pants and was recorded on an Edison cylinder then we had a Marillion concert from 1980-something. Both were very good but they took us to well past lunchtime and both were brought into the workshop and played by Mike unbidden.

Missing the point there old chap- I'm quite happy to listen to (early) Marillion and Genesis, but not the SAME Marillion and Genesis, session after session- hence bringing in the new stuff. The live rendition of 'Misplaced Childhood' is very passable, but I found parts of 1973's 'Selling England By The Pound' harder going and even a lot of 1991's 'We Can't Dance' is surprisingly forgettable.

Funny how most of the stuff I brought in disappeared, Metallica, iron maiden, AC DC and the likes all gone
And replaced by some " music" that I'm glad when the rivet guns start, and before you start my stuff doesn't sound like rivet guns,

But it was the SAME - only different versions. Enjoyed it though. Anyway, you can listen to Kylie on purpose so SAME ought to suit just nicely.

You're right - the rivet guns have a nice rhythm to them and don't sound at all like cutting thin-wall stainless on the chop saw with a dry blade whilst someone shouts manically over the top of it.

There's something we can agree on - the harder variety of rock/metal just doesn't work in the workshop. Even John die grinding the flutes was better than any of that!
