Re: New Tour - Setlist Spoilers

They always get better a few dates into the tour. Nowadays the Scottish dates are just a warm up/rehearsal for the legitimate part of the tour :smt110

Re: XTC... Waxworks/Beeswax... Result!

It's too easy to compare them to the Stranglers, but there's a reason for that. They started off full of raw energy which featured heavy and dirty bass with some Doors-esque keyboard tones, then they moved to a more melodic and polished sound as the 70's ended and the 80's began. Obviously, this had...

Re: New Tour - Setlist Spoilers

Seeing the set list before a gig is one thing, but watching it on youtube is what spoils it. I managed to steer clear of seeing the set list a couple of years ago and not read any reviews on here but saw someone had posted a youtube link of Two Sunspots on facebook. Gave the game away big time beca...

Re: "The Brits" Music is dead.

The "face" of music has been dead for years, didn't need the Brits to confirm that. Scratch beneath the surface a bit and you'll be pleasantly surprised how alive it can be. There are artist on the underground and who aren't signed to major labels who record companies may have taken a punt...

Re: XTC... Science Friction.

Really top band, been getting into them quite a lot over the last few months. Moulding and Partridge are both brilliant song writers and musicians in their own right. I prefer the 80's stuff, particularly Drums and Wires (I know that was 79), English Settlement and later on Wasp Star, but you can't ...
