I still think 'Gong' is one of their best.

Such a raw tune. In fact I'm going to wake my family up with it now.

'Gong' is a wonderful piece...
...though as far as that kinda music goes, I reckon there's much better out there. GY!BE, Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, 65daysofstatic and all that.

I frickin love 65daysofstatic (The Fall of Math would get in my top ten albums of all time), but really they sound nothing like Sigur Ros. Just because they are lumped in with the "post-rock" tag don't make them similar.

Godspeed I love as well. I used 'East Hastings' in a short film I made a few months back. I got everything they've ever released in a rather nice torrent a year or so back. Great stuff.

Mogwai I like odd tracks, Explosions in the Sky I never really got into.

Mogwai, Scottish post-rock band.

Get Young Team, it's their only album worth bothering with really.

after rent, I got by on about £40 a week - which was hard going but I didnt want to max out my debts. Its really worth thinking about. I used to purchase a bottle of wine (2.99 somerfield) and down that and head out at 9 or so, keeping a few quid for entry somewhere, maybe one drink. Taxis home was a luxury - geesh the number of times I walked home...! But at least in Bristol you can for the most part.

In later years I earned a bit more over summer and upped my spending to a more comfortable £70-80. I used to know people who killed 1-200 a week though, mostly on credit cards and loans etc, they are still paying for it

Or move to another country, you never have to pay back your tuition fees that way

I think I may die, I have already eaten £700 into my overdraft on books / necessary things for uni like new shoes and a garlic press.

Tbh I can see myself spending far too much of my loan during freshers week. Goodbye money.

Does anyone know whats going on with Freshers Week? Some of my friends have got plans of whats happening during their fresher's weeks...Ive heard nothing!

My overdraft is as yet, intact.

I have only had it for like a week, so plenty of time to decimate it.

I'm not liking this overdraft thing at all. You go to your bank, it says you have £1000- but that's not your money! That's someone else's money you eventually have to pay back! No wonder students get into debt when it says you have money you don't! Goodness me!

Get battered before you actually leave the house and it becomes much cheaper. Wine/coke, vod/orange etc. A cheap night and you know exactly what colour it's gonna be when you yak it all up again!

If you're catered, you can get buy on less than £10 a week food wise. Less if you nick what you need for lunch from breakfast. You can also 'borrow' plates, cutlery, milk and other stuff there.

You don't need books - that's what the library is for. Only buy the ones you really need, and don't do that until about easter time.

I was spending £lots for the best part of a year. 4 heavy night out a week and an expensive hobby at weekends. It dropped considerably once i became hall bar manager....

Getting drunk before you go out at uni is ace- SO much cheaper and cos everyone goes out so late anyway you're drunk for the rest of the evening.
