Re: Best MUSIC books read

Didn't Savage receive a thump or two for giving RV a bad review? Pretty sure he got done in black anyway for slagging the band, if so then I'd guess he got his own back by erasing the band from Punk history in his 'seminal punk book'. I've never understood the 'need' for music journos, especially in...

Re: Shingles

I had shingles in my early 20s actually, not a bad case but not pleasant at all regardless. Think it was stress related ('She's gone and left me, I don't know why, that girl she's crazy, she makes mince pies') Hope you get it sorted, Strangledinauch, it can get serious if not resolved :( I've been f...

Re: The Ramones

I've got all their t shirts but haven't heard any of their songs! :lol: :grin: It IS bemusing seeing all the shirts on so many people who you just know don't have a clue about the Ramones. I like them, always thought of them as a male version of 60s girl bands like Shangri-las, Ronettes, etc, but n...

Re: The Clash

I love The Clash.. I've posted a few gigs on here in the past.. but never this one... one of my faves, as I love Sandinista... the songs sound much better played live! Topper Headon at his peak. This is a lesser known Bond's Casino recording from the mixing desk... I posted a different night years ...

Re: The Clash

Clash were a great band and Strummer one of the best front men there has been. The Stranglers were different and IMHO much better. Each to their own innit, but to call them overrated just because it's possibly trendy to wear Clash shirts is rather rich? I bet you can guarantee though that most of th...

Re: Tubeway Army

'Replicas' is TA isn't it? Absolute classic IMHO. I wasn't an avid fan other than that really (was worrying it was a GN solo album too just now) but I have massive respect for Numan. Thought he lost his way in the 90s but then bounced back with some great material. I don't think the music biz gives ...

Re: The Damned - London SBE 231118

Cheers, grand review!

Watched that documentary on the Damned recently, Sky Arts I think it was on. Great watch, I never realised what their own internal wrangles were about until seeing this. Shame but thankfully Vanian is still there and Captain Sensible back.
