Re: If something's going to kill me...

Best song on the album for me so far. In fact it's miles apart from anything else. They need to push this one hard IMO

Because he started the band[emoji41]
Well Jet housed,fed and watered the band that would eventually become the Stranglers with him in it

Re: RIP Joey Jordison of Slipknot.

Don't know anything about this guy but he was born on the same day as me. So he was a young age to die

Re: White Stallion

Listen to Jet on the intro to Toiler on The Sea on all live. Amusing cos Hugh is in full twang, Dave is absolutely fantastic and JJ is giving it that wonderful bass. Yet above all that Jet is the one that shines, the solid fucking pounding drums and those rolls on the Toms. Seriously, go listen Jim ...

Re: White Stallion

I think out of all the differing of opinions we have Jet will never be one of those. The guy was fucking on it from day one to the day he stepped down. Total respect to Jet

Re: Sisterhood

Just to say I think this sounds great. I just wish we had this on the album and not The Lines. Credit where credit is due, this sounds quite something!

Re: White Stallion

Encouraging although those operatic vocal stabs will probably get on me tits. Sounds like a recent Damned song but I can't put my finger on it. Jim Procrastination from Evil Spirits?

Re: White Stallion

I'll reserve judgement until I hear the full album Jim I'm not keen on that overdriven sound - it's usually what people come up with when they're try to get the classic JJ sound but don't know how to? It's not enough to put me off the track though - I've played that video to death :lol: Spot on ...i...

Re: White Stallion

I think if they had a proper opera singer on it it might add a bit of life to it rather than some very obvious keyboard stabs. such a shame

Re: White Stallion

Ok so the Damned songs. The intro sounds a little bit like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxAiukuKL34 and the "kissing in the rain" bit reminds me of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cb3uQSO7FYI&t=90s Funny how throughout the years some Stranglers songs sound like The Damned and vice v...
