Re: Best Intros to songs from other bands

Discharge .......... Ain't no Feeble bastard ....... a full on thudding bass into an assault on the senses . My favourite from this band , probably not everyone's cup of tea , but they influenced a generation of punks AND thrash , death metal too .

Re: RIP Pete Shelley

After witnessing the two Back to Front shows I’d say there is no love lost between Devoto and Diggle. We’ll just have to wait and see won’t we. I saw a Youtube clip of a gig where the original Buzzcocks played a few songs ( Devoto singing ) , then after that it was Buzzcocks without , which Diggle ...

Re: Keith Flint.

Went to his pub once in Pleshey , didn't realise it was his until yesterday , I went around 9 years plus ago , it was for a race which started at the pub ....that may sound odd , but we used too run in trail races which start at low key venues as opposed to road running . There were a lot of birds ...

Re: WHAT THE FCUK ARE YOU LOT LISTENIN TO - When it's not the fucking Stranglers??!

Cockney Rejects. I remember seeing em many many years ago on TOTP when I was about 13/14, I don’t think they were much older, 16/17? Anyway just got into them after all these years and started buying their albums, they do support West Ham though, but I won’t hold that against them. Would also like ...

Slaughter and The Dogs - vastly under rated band .......... sort of band that could support The Stranglers IMO .Good punk - pop- rock band .

Re: the skids

I'd love to go see them . Trouble more often than not they do Scotland or a handful of gigs , none really near me , but would like to make an effort to see them sometime . Would say same about The Buzzcocks , but that's not going to happen now :( .

Re: Stranglers v Clash v The Jam v Pistols

At our school , if you were a punk ( the majority in my year were , it was that and heavy metal ) , to be called a Jam fan was an insult , however they were a very decent band . Punk or not .....who cares now , but it was important then. Same with The Stranglers , looking at The Stranglers compared ...
