Re: Bands you disliked but are now quite a fan of

Springsteen :shock:

Used to slag him off all the time, but I think a lot of his stuff is just a victim of the production trends at the time (sound familiar).

A colleague has been bangin' on about him for ages and took the trouble to make me a playlist. He's a pretty good song writer.

Re: Just strap on your guitar and we'll play some rock 'n' roll

It's fantastic. Don't buy an electromatic one. Chinese made, they are built well but not the same. souless My mate has a 50's one. Real deal. Mine is very different but, as he said, has it's own expression and feel. I can get somelovely warm feedback from it and it's really nicely weighted. And it ...

Re: Just strap on your guitar and we'll play some rock 'n' roll

This was a novel thread. Always been a bass player but I play more and more guitar now. I've got a fender telecaster and a shaftsbury rick copy - both lovely. I used to echo most people's sentiments on here about Gibson Explorers, but the guitarist in my band plays one and I have to say, they''re a ...

Re: WHAT THE FCUK ARE YOU LOT LISTENIN TO - When it's not the fucking Stranglers??!

That's the best track on Dogrel IMO. Not keen on the rest of it - Big is alright but I find his vocals feckin annoying on some of the songs. Jim That's a big part of their appeal to me there Jim. Any front man always gets bonus points for singing in their actual accent rather than american or those...

Re: WHAT THE FCUK ARE YOU LOT LISTENIN TO - When it's not the fucking Stranglers??!

Fontaines D.C. - The Boys From The Betterland 8) I'll second that. Dogrel is album of the year so far for me (and the earlier versions of the same songs recorded I much prefer too) and the gig they did earlier in the year at Gorilla in Manchester is the best I've been to in a long, long time. Get o...

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. :smt026 <- me doing a happy dance. I've always liked them and I'm going to catch a couple of dates on the tour later in the year. Not the biggest fan ...

Fontaines DC anyone? Went to see them in Manchester on Saturday and they blew me away. It's the best gig I've been to in years.

Re: Buzzcock's live DVD Shepherds Bush 2003.

Unconfirmed and unsurprising rumours doing the rounds in certain Buzzcocks circles on the internet that they'll be getting Devoto in. Who knows?

Re: overrated footballers!

Speaking as a Man United fan, Wayne Rooney for the last 3 or 4 years is without a shadow of a doubt the most overrated footballer going.

As for Pogba? Yeah he cost a stupid amount of money, but it's early days. I think all those slating him now may be eating humble pie :smt006
