Re: New 999 Album

Not bad and not great. Some heavy bass lines. Fave song on first listen "Crazy Tuesday World".

The Damned Show

Really good idea from The Damned to entertain their Fans in Covid19 times... There are already several clips on Youtube called The Damned Show.
The latest one: https://youtu.be/Dsxl6FCYSpI
Would like to see and hear Dave Greenfield playing solo...

To some point music or art are a matter of personal taste. To see it differently is ok.

Re: The Clash

I love The Clash.. I've posted a few gigs on here in the past.. but never this one... one of my faves, as I love Sandinista... the songs sound much better played live! Topper Headon at his peak. This is a lesser known Bond's Casino recording from the mixing desk... I posted a different night years ...

Re: The Clash

There are quite a few great songs written by The Clash, but very different to The Stranglers tracks. Both deserve respect. As many other bands. Can't say that the band XX is the best one of the world. Music is more than just one band for me. I also don't eat the same meal every day. For those who li...

Re: The Clash

Always liked The Clash and most of their music but always preferred The Stranglers, best band of the whole Punk/New Wave area. The Clash were very productive, even more than The Stranglers in those years (1979/1980 - double and triple Clash albums). But you can't compare the two bands, so you should...

Re: Favourite Other Band

The last Damned studio album Evil Spirits (Oct. 2018) is at least as good as The Stranglers Giants album, probably "better" 🤓. Latest offer of a new Damned song: https://youtu.be/da7Bc_w4nhM A whole new album is in the pipeline according to an interview with Dave Vanian a few months ago. But a new d...

Re: Favourite Other Band

The Damned... great band. They have written many really good songs and are not a simple noise combo. And the original singer Dave Vanian is still in the band 😎. Wish Hugh hadn't quit nearly 30 years ago.
