I never done it - Monkey Dust - Ivan Dobsky's Charity Gig - YouTube

I doubt Monkey Dust made its way over to your side of the planet… you have missed out on some quality dark dark humour with an excellent sound track. Some of it is on YouTube. Only first series made it to DVD due to having too much music on it. This is why torrents were invented.

[warning - anyone easily offended don’t click on that link]


just wanted to share a fun recording I just added to the DB. I spent far too long finding all the individual musicians before finding they were all linked on the original poster’s TikTok post… :sweat_smile:

this also made me realize that we probably ought to better support TikTok URLs. would that be a “new feature” ticket? nevermind, there’s already a ticket for that.

edit: is this a basic wall of sound? :thinking: :wink:


30 posts were split to a new topic: Songs with Place Names in the Title (collection)

No apology needed, this thread is for anything at all, including ‘on-topic’ MB stuff, for as long as you want to talk about it.

If you or IvanDobksy want your posts moved out then you can ask an admin but you definitely don’t have to :+1:

It’s like IRC but easier to follow and catch up. :wink:


Funny you say that, because I made this thread after me and @IvanDobsky were talking about how everything’s on IRC :stuck_out_tongue:


I haven’t used IRC in probably close to a decade, and I can’t somehow work out how to get it working properly these days.

What client do you guys use?

I use the web client that’s linked in the MB Contact Us page. :grin:

3 posts were split to a new topic: Jazmin Bean legal name edits

kinda on-topic, I guess, but I just added a my first broadcast release

it’s the first video aired on MTV, back in 1981. I kinda wonder if I did it right… :sweat_smile:

along those same lines, I found the first two hours of MTV on YouTube. haven’t watched it very far in (got to the first Who video so far), but it’s very interesting~


Moved here from How to link to two Discogs pages with annotations? - #5 by jesus2099

I have been reading quite some Discogs bashing recently*, but MusicBrainz, Wikipedia, etc. all websites are full of errors, it’s normal, by nature.

Discogs is really great website to find physical edition details.
Even as a convinced MusicBrainz user, I usually love Discogs and its content!


Don’t take my Discogs comments as bashing. I contribute to both sites. They just have very different policies. Both are full of great data and it is the mad chasing of strict guidelines that makes both sites great.

I could pick up on MB chasing of mad Grammar and Apostrophe’s if you need me to even things out a bit? :rofl:


I watched it a couple months ago.
I believe it is wrong, I wouldn’t use it as a source.

the video description says they edited out a couple videos at the request of some of the owners.

My tip is - copy it from the don’t on the page



I still think that the “guess case” button should be able to identify and fix this but heyho.

Hmm, i dont really understand how this entry would be any different from this entry:

It’s the same “video”, would be different in my opinion if it was the buggles singing it live / performing.

Surely you could just add that annotation to the original entry (above)?
