For Ruen Bros. I'd recommend "all my shades of blue" and "Genevieve come out tonight".
I used to travel to the Grimsby area for business and thought - "nothing good can come from this place". Sorry if anyone on the board is from that dreary corner of England. But then I found out that a band I liked was actually from Hull (Beautiful South) and now these guys are from Scunthorpe which is a bit west of Grimsby. So, maybe dreary industrial places are good for producing bands. Don't think I ever actually set foot in Scunthorpe - maybe it's not like the smokestack river towns along the Humber.
I mean, not obsessed like ELO obsessed but still obsessed. There's been some talk of TAME IMPALA on the forum (I think orioles70 might have mentioned liking them?) I think these guys are even better. To me they offer a lot of the same things as ELO, spacey and psychedelic but also poppy and synthy.
This song from the album sounds kind of "Idle Racey"
new songs out from Paul McCartney and Tom Petty I'm not a fan of Paul's song but the Petty one is pretty good. On the other hand, Tom was only 32 when he recorded "Keep a little Soul", while Paul is 76 now. Have to give him credit for trying to write and perform a real rock song - just doesn't work for me.
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
