Re: Depeche Mode

I really like Depeche mode for a particular era 1981-1990. I appreciate some groups want to evolve but they have been stuck in gloominess since about 1993. There have been the occasional catchy good song on albums since "precious" being one. Wish they would leave the industrial darkness al...

JJ and Hugh (a little) nicked his duckwalk stance for their crouching thing they did/do on stage..

Rick Parfitt R.I.P

:cry: :cry: :cry: Always been a big Quo fan. Rick's style was often derided but hugely influential although very few would admit it.

Re: "The Clash" became what they wanted to replace?

The clash were quite a manipulated band. They were manufactured and thrown together and their forming wasn't organic. Bernie Rhodes arranged the meeting for Strummer and Jones to get together. They claimed to be working class living in bed sits when in fact half the band members came from well off m...

Re: "Adele" who likes her? If anyone?

Not my thing at all but can appreciate she has a great personality and voice. Also she has worked hard to get where she is and hasn't gone through tv talent shows or selling a sexual image to shift albums. Just because you don't like something musically it doesn't mean it isn't any good and Adele is...

John Southorn (The Jamm r.i.p)

Sadly passed away today with a form of lymphoma seen them a few times, he was more like Weller than weller image wise and vocally, very sad news.

Re: Damned 40th Anniversary - Royal Albert Hall 2016

Quite remarkable how the Damned have sold out the Albert Hall out like this. Just a few years a go they were playing to half empty pubs. They haven't really sold that many records since the 80s either, so nostalgia and hard work gigging has paid off for them and it is a landmark tour too I suppose. ...

Re: Wellers new album

Quite like the new album, he seems much a happier bloke these days as well. Weller's albums since Stanley road have ben a bit hit or miss containing a few good songs here and there but this one is pretty consistent. I think nostalgic people think he is suddenly going to do an album of 60s mod covers...

Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

Haven't heard the new one yet but glad they are back. A band who did something different on each album apart from becoming victims of their own success a bit in the mid 90s. They started off being marketed as a northern madchester type act something they hated as they were Essex Boys, and their seco...

Re: ED Miliband

If the economy is such in a great shape, growth, more jobs and other unlimited rice pudding then why aren't the Tories way ahead in the polls on the verge of a comfortable overall majority this week???
