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

The Bullshit of Christmas, had a card from some family in our road, wanting everyone to do a living advent calendar, ie you decorate your front window and reveal to others in Christmas Eve? You must live in a far more respectable area than me, I shudder to think what people round here would reveal....

Re: Who is britians best ever punk band!

The Damned had better songs than the pistols, and they were less manufactured/managed. If punk is about music, I'd say The Damned are probably one, if not, the best British punk band. If the best is about publicly, controversy and inspiring other musicians, it's probably the pistols. And there no de...

Re: Best MUSIC books read

Once he's got the "bullying misogynists" schtick out of the way, he goes onto claim that because The Stranglers sold more records they were somehow more musically conservative than the likes of The Pistols, which is nonsense. I like the idea that the stranglers appealed more to the 1970s ...

Re: New PUNK doc series on Sky Arts

Re aboves, car-crash viewing, billed Rotten V Marky Ramone, (no love lost there) I believe was a promo interview for the above Punk series. Any views on Lydon? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhVZLL1pMQ0 I didn't know that Henry Rollins could be so quiet. It looked like lydon didn't know anyone els...

Re: Bands you disliked but are now quite a fan of

I'm getting into Robert Palmer :shock: I only really knew him from addicted to love and that Duran Duran band he was in. But the late 70s/early 80s stuff is good. Maybe I'm getting old and middle of the road. I never liked new order, but that was mainly because of their tedious remixes and me dislik...

Re: New PUNK doc series on Sky Arts

I enjoyed the night, despite the stranglers being ignored.

Listening to lydon I can see why glen Matlock doesn't want to spend time on a tour bus with him.

Re: Glastonbury 2019

The cure was a brave choice. Glastonbury seems to need lots of interaction between the band and the audience and you're never going to get that with Robert Smith. I enjoyed seeing the audience's reaction to the opener with its (what seems like) 45 min intro. But what's not to love about 'A Forest'? ...

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

I suspect there isn't a great deal of pixies love on here, but I've just heard a new track on 6music and there's a promise of a new LP in September.
