When I used to read it, up until 1980, they never italicised the initials, so the compulsion overwhelmed me. Ro Thorpe 21:26, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

What standards are we working on here? I was under the assumption that all publications and books are italicised. Meg Ireland 21:40, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
I've changed it back. The Oxford style guide states publications should be italicised. Meg Ireland 21:43, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Rotten Oxford style guide! Ro Thorpe 22:28, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

So why did you stop reading it after 1980? I've never been a big fan. I preferred Melody Maker and Record Mirror. Meg Ireland 23:34, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Bored with the music, the punk/new wave thing was played out, didn't know the groups any more. I see the Human League's "Don't You Want Me" was actually from 1981, the last new single I bought before leaving for Portugal. MM I read from around the Tubular Bells era to the Roxy Music "Stranded" era. My favourite pre-punk bands were the Dead, the Velvets & Beefheart, while we're at it.

A Brit in Portugal... isn't that where Madeleine McCann disappeared? Anyway it doesn't appear we have anything in common musically. Meg Ireland 00:28, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Well, I've just started an article on the Wolf, as it happens... Ro Thorpe 00:33, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
