    Russeĺl is just full of famous people at present:

  3. This thread is straying from it’s purpose as a social chat. Some of the things posted here would be more appropriate in World watch, Media Watch or Open Forum.

    If this continues to morph into just another news, issues and opinions thread it will become redundant.

    • Yes, keep out the news unless it’s general and light

        There will probably be news of another fan drought if this sticky heat continues.

        When this house was built, they could well have had a coal range….what a hideous thought.

      Enjoyed the BTO album track you posted a few weeks ago. This is my pick of their popular stuff.

    Here’s one for all those aspiring to ride the road of bones before they die. It’s what happens when gypsy grunge overlaid with ska punk is coughed up by a mad Russian. Echoes of the gulag

    Couldn’t find the song on YouTube (can’t read russian) but here it is from 18 seconds to 1:18
