  1. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    I didn't mention that one but how about Black Keys - Gold On The Ceiling?
  2. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    Thanks for that, I've just had a quick listen to the Humanication album on youtube and it does sound like he's a contemporary of Bill Nelson & Yukihiro Takahashi of YMO and YMO material of the early 80's. Also I would be a gear nerd if I could afford to spend money on the older gear. I just ended up reading about the equipment instead. One artist I really admire is Alan Wilder and what he managed to do with the PPG synths and especially the EMU -EMAX synth. A quiet genius if ever there was one! All I ever had was a slightly faulty SH101 which I gave to a friend. Because my mate is literally house bound after a stem cell transplant he's taken up the hobby with synths and managed to find an engineer to purchase the SH101 for about £400 and with that he now has a Roland SH01 Gaia which is in my opinion an impressive synth.
  3. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    I had discovered his website but haven't got round to ordering anything yet. I remember emailing him and getting a reply saying that he was also selling the discs individually as well, but hadn't got round to ordering. The rest of the tracks on the album are pretty good and not what I would call filler. Must have been more popular in other countries. There must have been quite a lot of expensive gear being used on the album as it was very technologically accomplished for its time as an electronic album. Very much ahead of its time. I guess he must be some sort of producer for other people these days. Still got the original vinyl album with fancy picture sleeve maybe worth something.
  4. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    So there's another Reflex fan then? :-) Intro to Politics Of Dancing is pretty good. The album is very underrated as 80`s electro pop albums go.

    I just had to watch Fingerbib! Another strange one especially to wake up to!
  6. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    "She" Always gets my attention!
  7. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    How could I forget it! Once seen you can't unsee it! Or how about Didgeridoo or Window Licker? The man is an unhinged genius!
  8. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    Yello were quite good at grabbing the attention. Yello - The Evening's Young Yello - Bostich Yello - Limbo
  9. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    I was also considering Drive by The Cars, will never forget the video they used for this during the original Live Aid campaign.
  10. Intros that grab you......immediately.

    Classic intro! How about their recent single Big Music. In no particular order of greatness... Just a few from my itunes collection, this will be fun! Hope you all will be playing these classics over the weekend, some with intros slightly more involved than others! Prince - When Doves Cry - To me one of the weirdest intros ever Level 42 - Hot Water - the first 10 seconds Funny I was going to mention Red Rain! Propaganda - Duel Adam And The Ants - Prince Charming Madness - Driving In My Car Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond 7.36 minutes long - might not grab some people though The Stranglers - Peaches I would mention New Order - Blue Monday but some-one has mentioned that already! David Bowie - Oh! You Pretty Things (The piano intro played by Rick Wakeman) Fun Boy Three & Bananarama - It Aint What You do..... Gary Numan - Cars Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street The Hollies - The Fortune Teller Joy Division - Leaders Of Men Killing Joke - Love Like Blood Laura Branigan - Self Control - powerful rock guitar combined with synth. Led Zeppelin - When The Levee Breaks - to me the whole song is one long intro. Marvin Gaye - Sexual Healing - use of the Roland 808 drum machine. Michael Jackson - Thriller (original album version) New Order - Thieves Like Us - 2.24 mins long Queen - We Will Rock You - the first 11 seconds! Steely Dan - Haitian Divorce Tears For Fears - Mothers Talk (countdown to nuclear attack) song based on When The Wind Blows The Faces - Stay With Me Electric Light Orchestra - Here Is The News Fleetwood Mac - The Chain Yello - The Race Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons - Grease Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms Elvis Costello & The Attractions - Pump It Up Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky Lovin Spoonful - Summer In the City (the first 6 seconds) My personal all time favorite... Kraftwerk - Numbers Always was an amazing show opener! Kraftwerk may not be to everyone's taste but if you've ever been to one of their shows you'll know what I mean when this starts.
  11. Bristol Blenheim Mk 1, 211 Sqn, Greece 1940 /41

    That is a very nice & colorful Blenheim. Very inspiring! Martin
  12. 1/72 Buccaneer S.2?

    I would definitely re-scribe the whole thing! I'm never one for doing things by half! ;-) Rescribed an old Frog Javelin so a Buccaneer shouldn't take too long! ;-)
  13. 1/72 Buccaneer S.2?

    Superb detail work on your cockpit Stuart! ;-) I've still got mine abandoned in a box somewhere, but at least I have the Neomega modellers cheats add ons! Stuart according to my photos I would go for white for the intakes. I've got some photos in the walkaround section or here's my collection. https://flic.kr/s/aHskfPwDK3 The cockpit at the RAF Manston History Museum has intakes painted white as do a couple of other examples I have photographed.

  14. Decent MAC valves and quick release connectors anywhere?

    I think I will give one a go. I've seen one with a valve and a couple of spare quick release attachments. Only one way to find out at not too much expense. Thanks for your help. Martin
  15. Decent MAC valves and quick release connectors anywhere?

    To be honest I wish I could set my compressor valve like you say, but I keep getting different results each time. My compressor valve only seems to like increments of five psi. I've not been doing this long, so maybe the adjustment should be like that. I had a nightmare trying to get Vallejo Model Air Black to go through the airbrush consistently, then it was a case of air only. I have sprayed other colors fine with the same mix but it was a pain in the neck with the black.
