Just another Friday night

Rough Justice, the new Belgian series on More4 started out promisingly but then crawled along to become a lightweight piece of Euro-crime. The following BBC4 documentary on Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells was interesting but it seemed to make more sense to listen to the album itself. So courtesy of YouTube I’m listening on headphones and simultaneously finishing off one of the short stories from Tom Hanks’ Common Type. As I write this I’m into the last quarter of the album. This may be the first time I’ve ever listened to the whole piece. There are some dull bits and lots of pieces I know I’ve heard before. So, a mixed bunch of ‘tunes’ (for want of a better word) – I guess it was pretty revolutionary in its time and I think it stands up pretty well. A glass of red wine would have been nice.

Have your say!
