RIP Diego Maradona

To all football fans, whether you liked him or not, and I know he was contraversial, there's no denying the amazing talent of the man. The best ever ? Probably. He was the real deal, that's for sure. A trait most Stranglers fans would sympathise with. He achieved God like status, and not just for th...

Re: AC/DC

Never seen A.C. DC but would still love to if I ever got the chance. I've probably left it a bit late now though.. It would be a great gig to go to, but their material, I dunno they only ever sing about women & booze really dont they ? I got into the Highway To Hell album, and the one before tha...

Re: AC/DC

I don't think AC DC ever made another album as good as Highway To Hell, did they ?

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

What’s everyone’s Fave Jam song? Although it’s not on my fave Jam album ‘Setting Sons’ and it’s hard to beat some of their singles but ‘Man In The Corner Shop’ is my fave. Great lyrics, great melody, great song. Absolutely love it. 8) La la la, la la. La la la la la, la la la. La la la la la....la ...

Re: HLH Tribute song to Dave Greenfield

I think it's alright, there's not a great deal to it as a song but it's a nice little tribute just the same...

I listened to their latest album Dragged Up and enjoyed / was ammused by all the songs..

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

They are all superb to my ears, my fave being ‘Setting Sons’ which I believe is not a fave of Weller’s, but what does he know eh? Have to agree, most people rate AMC's as they're best album, but I much prefer 'Setting Sons' ... must listen to it every couple of weeks if not weekly. Best track for m...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

I think there's a few reasons why they're underrated, including all of the above. Ultimately they were different- more "quirky" if you like, than their peers. Some of their music was just undigestible to the average punter, although we the fans loved it. I saw a comment once, maybe it was ...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

It wasn't meant to be stranglers v Jam that's silly as different bands, I'm sorry I still stand by my view that they were overrated, but I except others disagree, it was really after watching the Jam rockpalast where I was so bored I fell asleep, last on this a few great songs. Lt Kudu. you fell as...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

Y'see, I don't agree that The Jam were "samey" at all. "In the City" does not sound like "Precious", "Scrape Away" does not sound like "Going Underground", "The Bitterest Pill" doesn't sound like "Set the House Ablaze" etc. I get...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

The Jam made a lot of great songs but they couldn't match the sheer repertoire of the Stranglers. But then who really could from that era ? There are some similarities to the Stranglers that cannot be ignored imo ie the bass sound and their reluctance and /or inability to crack America. They were ju...

Re: Who is britians best ever punk band!

Well if the Stranglers were "punk" for the first 3 albums then they were the best ever without a doubt ! If they were never punk then I don't know. I liked the Pistols but they didn't do a lot, only what 1 or 2 albums ? But yes their sound was great. What about the other big 2 ie Jam &...
