I cannot find the juke box, but can I ask for the whole of Marillions' "Misplaced Childhood" to be added to it? I have recently re-acquainted myself with it, and it is a very powerful album, but it needs to be listened to as one piece, not merely as individual songs, as they flow into each other, and build upon the previous songs.

Easy enough found James as you would expect from the world's no 1 juke box, google finds it straight away if you put in "Pickled Egg Jukebox" into the search.

link is here PE Jukebox

Haven't been too meticulous at updates recently but have enjoyed the suggestions so keep them coming.

I'm currently trying to research buying a kilt and a harp for a friend in Sweden - what a minefield!

He wants a small harp and has asked for an "English Harp" which appears to be non-existent.
I've suggested perhaps he wants a Paraguayan harp, or a Celtic one - which would go nicely with the kilt :)
I'm rather a fan of Mika Agamatsu,


a Japanese harpist who lives and is something of a legend in Paraguay but I also recalled a post here with the Kitt twins who among other things have small electric harps.



A long shot but if there is anyone who knows of sensibly priced harps and kilts I would appreciate a heads up on that.

One thing that you - Jim - may appreciate about the Kitt twins is that they are martial arts trained and trainers - now retired due to damage that would impinge on their harp playing.

Yes, knowing what damage practising a martial art at very high level and intensity can cause, that's understood...

I'm very partial to a bit of harp myself... Maybe it goes well with martial arts :)

Now that is taking me back a bit :shock: Perhaps the Pickled Egg should set up a micro-brewery to get those classic brews going again.... or perhaps not :lol: [-X

Worthington E was OK but the other two, both left where they belong - in the mists of time ;)

Remember the old 'Party 7'?

A double diamond works wonders, works wonders so drink some today

Worthigton E was "smooth and easy"

And of course "Harp stays sharp to the bottom of the glass"

Not much Watneys north of Watford so this must be the type of thing you are going on about

Odd coincidence - I mentioned the Kitt twins earlier and now I see we have a member delivery driver!
The Kitt twins are also actresses and were in a film called Delivery Driver :mrgreen:
