Re: Giants LP

Yes it is a bit ridiculous that the only two studio albums I don't have as an LP are the two which kickstarted their career again in the 21st Century.

Yeah, discovered that a few years ago and listen to it fairly regularly, a great piece of work.

Re: Golden Brown sampled in newly released music

Anyone ever hear the Adamski version? Not too bad actually.

Re: Gigs best worst loudest most seen etc.

Husband said he had seen this on Facebook. So thought we could share. Interesting. As we can’t go to any at moment. Also first gig you went to. My first and most seen Gary Numan. Marillion lots times. Loudest Nine inch Nails. No really bad gigs as in walked out. First: Guilfest 2002 including Stran...

That was an interesting listen - like tuning in to John Peel in the mid eighties!
On first listen, Are You Broken is the stand out track.
Thanks for taking the time to listen and great to get some feedback :)

Re: New Parasite release

The brand new album "Generation Ostrich" is out today. Here's the pretentious guff I wrote on the bandcamp to explain the ideas behind it: "Have you ever noticed how people these days are so preoccupied, misinformed and distrustful? There seems to be a general apathy towards society, ...

Re: Possible band re-unions you'd like to see

The Shamen 1985-1987 line up would be interesting. The Will Sin era is my favourite but sadly long deceased. I'd be more than happy to settle for the CGA/Mr C line up instead though. Thompson Twins original lineup, either the 4 piece from the early singles or even better if the 7 piece from the earl...

Re: The Damned -- new album out now

On the midweek charts the Damned are at number 59! According to data received by Captain they were actually at number 1 on Saturday, pretty cool. If you're thinking about getting the new Damned EP, now is the time to do it to make it count... https://www.officialcharts.com/charts/singles-chart-update/

Re: The Damned -- new album out now

The Damned have released another track. Its called Manipulator. Here it is on Spotify, I think it's the best so far of the three released from the new EP. It's punchy, got a good hook and is probably the punkiest thing they've done since some of the more throwaway tracks on SWP. https://open.spotif...

Re: Tinned Spam

Yep I think they should have quit when SPAM left. As far as I’m concerned it’s not SPAM anymore. But I have to say SPAM is a better SPAM than SPAM but not as inventive. I think they are certainly are better without SPAM, who never really fitted in even though he had a great SPAM, but it just didn’t...
