The Magnificent Seven (The Clash)

This song just came up on my playlist lately and I'm still wondering why people claim it to be the first attempt by a rock band to do rap when Hugh's vocals were far more rap-like in the 70s?

It's still a good funky/disco number but The Stranglers were more "rap" and they did it first :smile:

Re: What would you ask Dave...?

4. Don’t you think your keyboards sounded better in the older ‘Phat Analogue’ days rather than the present ‘Plinky plonky Midi’ days? :smile: I've wondered that too. Even in the early 2000s his live setup still had a nice variety and then he relied alot on that plinky plonky sound for a little over...

Re: Sounds Like The Stranglers

Not sure if you guys are into foreign bands but this song has so many Stranglers elements it's unbelievable. Notice that bass sound, the rapid-fire drumming, the keyboard sounds, the weird song structure, the 4 piece set up. I reckon this song would fit nicely in Suite XVI just after Summat Owtanowt...

Re: Spotify

Ive just got this recently and I've got to say this is bloody brilliant. I think the only Stranglers album that doesnt seem to be on here is Norfolk Coast? That's too bad.
