1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    If you don't mind experimental rock with synths in it, Arcade Fire are pretty good. They're all David Bowie fans, & Bowie himself was an Arcade Fire fan.

    Don't you even like bands like Arcade Fire? They're very much like the 80s synth rock bands.

    Not really i used to like alot of Metallica albums i.e Ride the Lightening, Metallica(the black album) and Master of Puppets, though there latest albums are rubbish and there even mastered terrible so sound terrible on a quality sound system, its a joke that 70`s music was mastered better then todays stuff made for ipods,laptops and wireless bluetooth speakers and radio.

    The problem, I think is that you're looking only to the mainstream - "music" cynically designed for mass-market appeal is always going to be Censored.

    FWIW typically the only new stuff I listen to is electronica - perhaps because it evolves along with production tech, while "traditional" instruments sound pretty much as they did 50yrs ago so their scope for innovation is somewhat limited. Other than the odd tune I hear on soundtracks etc there's nothing "traditional" made in the last maybe 10-20yrs that appeals in the slightest.

    By far my most influential source re. music is youtube, since its playlists often introduce you to stuff you're unfamiliar with.

    My advice would be collect every TV and radio in the house, make a little pile in the garden and torch the lot. Get onto youtube (with an adblocker installed), listen to something you really like and see where the autoplay takes you ;)

    Love youtube to quickly check stuff out, for music i love its got to be at least FLAC quality or CD/Vinyl, playing youtube through my 20 year old AE109 speakers is heresy.

    I preffer you use spotify to listen to stuff as its alot better for listening to albums:rocka:

    There are a few decent new-ish bands about.
    Rock-wise I'd say the White Stipes, The Vines Kings Of Leon, and The Black Keys, Band of Skulls, Arctic Monkeys, Pixies, Queens of The Stone Age, The Raconteurs, The Libertines, The Hives, The Strokes, Red Fang are good.
    A bit older - Radiohead, Muse, Stone Roses, Janes Addiction, Dnosaur jr, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Sebedoh, Sonic Youth.
    A bit more indie, Bluetones, Bombay Bicycle Club, Editors, I Am Kloot, The Lemonheads, Ryan Adams, Spoon, The Vaccines. :up::Rock On:

    There should be a few there for peeps....

    Editors are awesome!!..

    I rather like these too, might be something worth a listen (none are heavy or shouty iirc)
    Catfish and the Bottlemen, Deaf Havana, London Grammar, Milky Chance, PVRIS and, if you like something a little 'different', Beats Antique (Collide is may favourite album of theirs)

    I can handle some chill ecltro vibes every now and then, but draw the line at that. My heady days of p**s warm beer at filth avenue and park end are gone.
    I don't think we possess a radio other than DAB via android, and the TV is staying. Films are a big part of my chillax time....
    However, youtube does get used alot, and yes it does introduce different vibes.... though not so many.


    I'm probably in to about 2/3 of them :up:, a few i dont know so will look up, cheers!
