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.

Re: Sex Pistol Steve Jones on Instagram + Jonesy’s Jukebox

Funny you say he's friends with Ray Winston, I thought Steve's looks like Ray in Sexy Beast in some of his Instagram photos. :shock: I remember reading about the sex pistols reunion tours. They made a fortune from them, but the others had to travel separately to John, and stay in different hotels. I...

Re: Sex Pistol Steve Jones on Instagram + Jonesy’s Jukebox

He's having the time of his life over there, isn't he?

I've only heard a few of his radio shows,I should listen to more. He gets some good guests.

I don't know anyone who doesn't like the buzzcocks, that's some going for a punk band.

Re: Lets, like, just take a year off?

I guess it depends on the band's financial position to be able to take a full year off? Good point. The likes of U2, Radiohead and Coldplay will be spending extended periods not writing, recording or touring because they can afford it. The majority of bands need to keep working to pay the bills, th...

Re: Lets, like, just take a year off?

It's all of those artistic temperaments and strong egos that cause bands to make rash decisions that they can't back down from. At least the stranglers aren't suing each other like the new order lot. I suspect that the rolling stones have been close to splitting up - I get the impression that they a...
