Re: The Fall influenced by The Stranglers?

quite liked The Fall, only saw them once mind about 10 years ago, maybe more. They were supporting the buzzcocks.

Mark E Smith didn't look too well and kind of shuffled around the stage. And twiddled knobs, made fuck all difference to the sound....

Re: Dave's gear through time

£200 / £400 or even a few thousand can't be a problem for a successful touring musician at that level.

If there is a sound problem it's gotta be due to something else not money surely ?

Re: Smithy

He would have just sacked JJ anyway...

Once read an interview with him where he said about The Fall " we've never split up, well I haven't anyway"

Re: Smithy

shocking, but also surprised he was only 60. Last saw The Fall play 8-9 years ago & remember thinking he didn't look too well then and the way he shuffled around the stage I would never have guessed he was only 50ish.. Perhaps there was some illness... What a shame a truly unique guy. Sent from my S...

The brass section was a daft idea especially live

Re: RE: Re: Worse Stranglers

JJ revealing Golden Brown was about Heroin before it possibly going to number one! Was it really that though ? Wasn't it something to do with not enough copies of golden brown being made available and /or another single (the Jam) getting released at the same time ? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapat...

Re: THE FORUM MEMBERS COVERS ALBUM - A REVIEW!

seeing a tribute band can be a good night out IMO. With a few beers & songs you like don't see the problem myself. Not everybody can write songs & if I could play an instrument I'm sure I would enjoy playing some of my faves..

Whilst not a fan of rap music, 'White Lines (don't do it)' will always be a classic track for me. Couldn't agree more, im no fan of rap, but this was a classic. It was grandmaster flash wasn't it ?

Re: Rap Music

Rap is not something I can take seriously in terms of music.

The only exception I can think of is the Eminem Show album, which I kind of got into at the time. Some of the lyrics on that album are very hard hitting and the delivery is quite angry, almost punk !
