  1. Hi all, Sarah had the USA TV show Station 19 on tonight and at a dramatic point, a song called 'One Soul' by Gsharp was played. A new artist to me and I couldn't find much so far. Page here: https://www.facebook.com/whoisgsharp/ and https://www.instagram.com/gsharpandthebizness/?max_id=1527177176552801762 Here is the song, which builds up well from just voice into the full arrangement at the end.
  2. I think it's difficult for anyone to comment specifically on someone's situation, especially in relation to USA and Serbia. It's unlikely anyone will be able to comment informedly. I do think that using other people's Paypal accounts for anything more than one off uses, is potentially storing up future problems. Paypal's are person and email account specific, not shared. They link to your bank so using someone else's account, especially for selling - isn't a good idea. Those people requesting 'Friends and Family' all the time to avoid fees, are often not using it for what it was i
  3. Hi all, I sell my spare Soul CDs on Amazon (and for those they cannot list Discogs). From later in April all items sold must have tracking, which isn't worth adding for cheap CDs. The amount of postage cost already doesn't fully cover CD sales. There will likely be an exodus of third party sellers of CDs and inexpensive items from Amazon that do not merit postal tracking for a first class sent CD that arrives next day. It just won't be worth the cost or effort for many (including me). We may find some ways to minimise the impact as sellers, but the trend is towards digital tracki

  6. Thanks for sharing this sad news. Songwriters are often overlooked but he wrote some classics.
  7. KeV - I think we're all in the same situation and I feel the same as you describe. The government wants the nighttime industry to stay around until they have answers while not doing any formal sector 'bailout' (I'm in energy and there's no cover at all by government for customer bills, the growth in debt of customers not paying is left with the energy companies right now). So it's trying to show positive signs and hope for the future - but these lateral flow tests aren't accurate enough as the BBC article said and introduce their own risk if we rely on them. In the backgroun
  8. I didn't mean that you were saying this yourself - apologies. I soon calmed down and edited my reply afterwards to clarify properly. I was saying that they do not 'have approval to introduce health passports to music venues' as Far Out magazine asserted. It is that assertion that is overreaching against the facts. They are doing a limited showcase trial of their own commercial solution (not government adopted technology or with wider government mandate) at two venues. It's really important to be clear on this as people could read the articles and infer more than this actual
  9. It is start-up You Check's own health passport proposal not a government one. https://www.eventindustrynews.com/news/venues-set-to-trial-you-check-health-passport# It's just a start up saying 'let us show you something' to the government. I see this all the time in my sector and participate in some government showcase technology trials. Even if adopted it means a test every week or possibly more. I'm not sure how long interest in that will last. I'm not cynical, I want to get things back. Boris's words yesterday were the first on this and far more cautious. Let's all
  10. Bit more at the bottom of the article: "Mr Kill said allowing revellers to perform tests the day before or under the supervision of a professional over a video call could make the process less onerous. Nevertheless, he welcomed Mr Johnson's announcement. "Finally we have some acknowledgement from the prime minister and government on the existence of late-night economy businesses, including nightclubs, theatres, casinos and late bars, particularly as they are some of the hardest hit since the start of the pandemic," he said." So you'd have to show up with evidence of
  11. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-56077372 The UK government seems to be possibly linking opening of venues to use of lateral flow testing at some point in future. The theory being you have to get a negative test at the venue before you are allowed in I guess. That seems a long way off and doesn't seem like we should expect any Soul venues operating in 2021 to me. At present the PM is only speculating, there are no specific plans or measures around introducing lateral flow testing into events (and aren't these test only partially accurate anyway). I have to check Covid19 govern
