Re: Killing Joke at RAH next March

The new stuff is good but is in danger of becoming a little formulaic. The first two albums have power and menace and this should be an amazing night! Glad the news is out there at last! I totally agree. As far as I am concerned “Absolute Dissent” although very raw on the recording quality, is a ph...

Re: Toby interview

Whilst, I lost interest in the stranglers as a live unit some time ago, he comes over like a decent bloke, the fact he does music therapy and understands the challenges of autistic people is something that I give him a massive thumbs up for, because frankly too few people out there give a shit

Re: Jubilee anyone Celebrating the event?

This Jubilee is really subjugation of the people,it takes the focus off the shit state this country is in,and all the staff who are looking after my dad are either from India or Africa etc,and a fucking great job they are doing. The NHS is up shit creek,is the Jubilee going to solve that no,get rid...

Re: XTC

Acquired the brand new repressing of “Mummer”. Don’t really like the alternative sleeve artwork, but musically, lyrically it’s a very fine album. A very good repressing, excellent sound quality, excellent quality vinyl, and interestingly proclaiming to be pressed in England. I rate Mummer higher tha...

Re: 10 More Songs About Roses

Thanks for the list. There's a few tunes that I do not know or have forgotten. I will give them a go. I am disappointed that I forgot Garbage and Siouxsie. Cheers. That Garbage one is a classic, from Beautiful Garbage, possibly their most consistent album. There’s also Living in the Rose by New Mod...

Re: 10 More Songs About Roses

Would Hugh's new song get into the above top 10? Hybrid T, Climber or Rambling, the choice is yours... I don’t know all of them , but 1, 4 and 8 definitely prefer them to Hugh’s Rose offering, and would also rate my 10 Rosie’s numbers above it, I unfortunately don’t really like Hugh’s Red Rose very...

Re: The Clash vs The Stranglers

Yes very easy, most of The Clash albums have good songs from The Clash to Combat Rock at least, but I haven’t felt compelled to listen to a single album, apart from “London Calling” a couple of times in the last ten years. I used to be very into political punk, and have largely come to have seen the...

Re: New Killing Jokes track

An EP 25th March. Vinyl in September. Some nice dub mixes on the EP. I too had expected a bit of variation/progression. It is very much in the vein of the last 3 albums but I would like to see it opened up a bit more. What I am pleased about is that it is a concise track and not a 6 minute overblow...

“Melt the Guns” from English Settlement is another great track
