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 ...

Stranglers v Clash v The Jam v Pistols

People nowa...

Re: I’m a Punk/New Waver ... Get Me Out Of Here!

Jello Biafra ( Dead Kennedy's) - ever short of an opinion . Capt Sensible - for comedic relief , funny and down to earth bloke . Jet Black - Stranglers element , just think JJ or Hugh would always be on about their own past and history . Mick Jones ( Clash ) - probably more interesting than Simonen ...

Re: From The Jam

Well, you know, some of us weren't around 40 years ago to hear the discussion. If you want to discuss it, then do. If not, don't waste your time with the fatuous posts. Wasn't fatuous - just saying it was a popular subject for a couple of years around 77-78 , just pointing that out , nothing more ,...
