Re: Statues and censoring old songs

No Stan thinks he’s god cos he’s got Moderator status so everything he says is right and everyone else’s opinion is wrong and if he feel’s he’s looking a bit of a prick and losing his so called argument then he’ll send in his little clique to further try and bully you. Incorrect. Being a moderator ...

Re: Statues and censoring old songs

Thinkpieces in intellectual circles doesn't constitute the same moral outrage afforded less contraversial matters in mainstream media outlets. Commentary on the track was not limited to "intellectual circles" and there was indeed plenty of "outrage" and "commentary" in...

Re: Statues and censoring old songs

By the way, the uncensored version of Fairytale of New York is still available on Youtube, so - as I'm finding is often the case - your point lacks one. Clearly by extension, my point is that music like the mentioned Cardi-B's is not regarded as implicitly offensive or subject to moral scrutiny. In...

Re: Statues and censoring old songs

You should be more worried about sounding thick rather than repetitive. Cardi B's "verbal pornography" (which I'm taking to mean her song WAP) was indeed heavily censored for radio play, including on BBC Radio 1 (the exact station mentioned in the article), so yes those "sensitive wa...

Re: Statues and censoring old songs

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-54999375 At the risk of sounding repetitive, how come things like this are calmly sanctioned whilst the likes of Cardi B churns out verbal pornography to youngsters without even a raised eyebrow from the sensitive watchdogs? You should be more worried a...

Re: AC/DC

I know a lot of people who are into 'em. Can't stand 'em, though - sure, they rock, but I find 'em far less interesting than Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper etc.

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

It's very difficult for me to choose a favourite Jam album as I like them all, and the non-album singles (as well as their b-sides) were always top notch. I think if I really, REALLY had to choose one, I'd probably choose Sound Affects which is a bit of a unique one in their discography. I suppose y...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

Well isnt that part of what we love or loved about the band the fact they had the guts to release JLNOE as a single? On one hand you could say it was "guts", on the other you could say it was sheer stupidity. Of course the fans were going to buy it, but other than that I'm not sure what o...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

Yeah, The Stranglers are underrated but to be fair the band themselves are partly responsible for that. The Jam had the good sense to release singles that had a reasonable chance of becoming a hit - 'Going Underground' and 'Town Called Malice' went to number one because they deserved to be, while Th...

Re: Which bands or artist would you have most wanted to have seen live?

John Foxx-era Ultravox, Gary Numan on the Telekon tour or Queen in '73 or '74 when they were still a progressive/hard rock band.

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

Set The House Ablaze is a superb track and the best on Sound Affects imo. It is their epic track, of course the Stranglers did it regularly on every album and that is another thing that sets them apart from everyone else.. I agree - up there with Funeral Pyre as one of the most intense things they ...
