Probably very nice but the brand name has unpleasant connotations.

Re: tyres

Re: Exhaust raspberries

A shorter tailpipe farts less. I once fitted a full new system and the tailpipe projected past the bumper. To prevent damage from reversing I had the angle grinder out and lobbed a good 6 inches off, definite difference.

Re: Currently drinking.....

We took some friends to Mount St Bernard Abbey yesterday and bought a couple of bottles of their Trappist ale to try. The monks have given up on dairy farming and have revived their brewing tradition. Beautifully made and presented but you almost need a spoon to get it out of the bottle! Too strong...

Nearest to modern for me is Ozric Tentacles. Live at the Sunrise Festival and Erpland are superb.
