Re: 1st STRANGLERS GIG

Re: What is your current Covid employment state?

I work in the public sector and I'm currently working from home - even though it's very quiet and a bit boring sometimes, I'm very grateful for it. It gives me a routine, plus my job is secure, so I'm more fortunate than many others.

Re: Andy Gill RIP

It'll be interesting to see the outcome of this, it certainly sounds like he could have been an early victim of coronavirus.

Re: Best song on Ten

Someone Like You is a good song, but Never to Look Back is head and shoulders above anything else on the album. It's interesting, given that he wasn't contributing much, that JJ arguably wrote the 2 best songs of that period, in Never to Look Back & Instead of This. I'd argue that during the 10...

This was MKII's strongest album in terms of songwriting.

Re: The Clash

I liked The Clash ...... for a fairly short while . I thought the first album was great , 2nd very good ....... but once the reggae and other stuff surfaced I completely lost interest in them .
