    Matt Handley and I played in a # instrumental cover band when we were 9 years old, playing in three different keys 'cause we all had different "EZ-Play" Lennon-McCartney songbooks and knew no better. He later swore me to secrecy, so I mention this at every opportunity.

    The # are the only band I can think of where you want to sing the backing vocals because they're more interesting and fun than the lead.

    About time somebody recognised it: "it’s clear that # had a unique grasp of timbre, texture and timing, and a quirkily inventive approach to drum figures designed to animate each song in the most productive way possible." http://ur1.ca/qy0ls #

    # to Abbey Road. After the uneven and jarring, occasionally brilliant, White Album, and the Get Back/Let it Be shambles, the # could easily have done another couple of congenial albums in this mode. But to what end? A full stop is a full stop.

    @tregeagle I would have ended up in a circus sideshow as the baby with a spooky command of # trivia, providing the world with a welcome distraction from McCartney's solo career in the increasingly distressing 1970s.

    Can't stand lazy biography. The # were never stoned "most of the time in the studio". Two albums a year 1963/64/65/66, plus non-album singles and EPs. Try that while stoned "most of the time". http://denofcinema.com/beginning-revolver-50/

    Revolver is 50 years old. Play a tape of Happy Birthday backwards, accompanied by sitar. http://denofcinema.com/beginning-revolver-50/ #

    The problem with writing in English rather than code is that you can't listen to music with English lyrics as you work. It fights for possession of the same neural circuits, I guess. So I just get drunk and howl along to the # in the evening instead.

    It's getting hard to be someone, but it all works out. It doesn't matter much to me. #

    A change in the # at last! I love the sound of rain after a hot day. McCartney's bass is pretty sweet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTxlDC93mXs Seriously, it goes through my head every time it rains; it's an affliction. #

    # and # Friday night. I know how to live. You wish you could stand the pace. Fat fingers didn't quite hit the Enter key, so my capitol city is '\'. Should technically be '/boot', I suppose.

    @panda Let It Be is the freakiest of these. As if it wasn't enough of a hymn already. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeIyX4KXgpE #

    @luke He made me promise never to reveal that he was once in a # cover band that played in 3 different keys because we each had different "EZ-Play" Lennon-McCartney songbooks. Oops. Sorry Matt. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pollyanna_%28band%29

    Finally configured # on my now not-so-new computer to scrobble. Now the world can once more appreciate my eclectic tastes, ranging from post-punk to post-punk revival. Oh, and the # So much Beatles. https://libre.fm/user/mjd/recent-tracks

    I can at least make a decent stab at John Lennon imitating Bob Dylan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNyPXWMnIz0 #

    Another one of my regrets is that I can't imitate Paul McCartney imitating Little Richard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiXtk296YmE #
