Re: new damned album

... if it was The Stranglers and they released on par with this I'd be pretty happy ( no jazz songs ) ... Agreed. I would rate the new Damned album higher than the last Stranglers album Giants. I think then .....The Damned have set the bar .....and pretty high too . A lot of bands doing their last ...

Re: new damned album

I think it depends ( like The Stranglers ) which era you bought into the band and what exactly you like about the band . I prefer the original material , probably first 2 or 3 albums - like The Stranglers it had a harder edge and was a more raw sound . This new album falls more under their psychedel...

Re: Dave's gear through time

Whatever he uses now, they sound shite. I've said for a while - the keyboard sound sometimes sounds like its being played under water .....it can be horrendous , which is a shame when you come to classic keyboard solo's live and you get that horrid gurgling sound . Didn't know the cost but I can on...

Re: Things you fecken hate..........

Righty ho ........... Arriving back from holiday in Croatia at Gatwick and getting through the airport in 20 mins flat , back at car within half an hour .....this is about an hour and a half quicker than the much nearer Stansted Airport , which I find dreadfully slow and impossible to get through cu...

Re: new damned album

Just ordered this , along with Burning Cities ( Skids ) , Mission Impossible ( Chelsea ) ....so if The Stranglers do get an album out this year it will make a huge 4 albums for me in 2018 .....last time I got any was 3 in 2012 .Maybe Killing Joke can throw one in and it'll be a mega year for me .

I wonder how many people had at one stage or another been in The Fall , most he would have fallen out with at some stage .


60, I read the other day.
I thought it might be more - maybe in the 100's .

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 ...

Re: Stranglers Film? Any news?

I had an email almost exactly a year ago (just before Christmas 2016) and it said: "Nice to hear from you. The movie is still in production but it's just been a bit of a slow process. It's still happening." I don't know if anything has changed since then. Only thing changed - the process is even sl...
