Re: "The Clash" became what they wanted to replace?

My 4 overrated acts of all time

(1) Rolling Stones
(2) The Clash
(3) Primal Scream
(4) Calvin Harris

Every so often I play London Calling (the album) , and I just do not get it.
To have this mish mash of a record overshadowing The Raven is a victory for hype over substance.

Re: England Euro 2016- "Permission and Fighting"

Read the lyrics to "Giants".
I think that nails it.
It's not working class. It's the "Two World Wars and One world Cup" mob.

Re: punk 1977

It's funny that even after 40 years we are still debating who is and who isn't "Punk". The Boomtown Rats and The Police were always too accomplished as musicians to be classified as punk. Just like my favourite band................ I always wondered how the MiB would have got on if they ha...

Great post Pigeon

As a result, it's going to be Slayer on Spotify for the rest of the evening.

This better be good or I'll be back to complain later

Glad to get that off my chest.

Re: The Sensitive Six...exposed?

I think what sums up it up perfectly is:

"Cos we've all grown up up, and got our own lives.
And the values that we had once upon a time,
Seem stupid now, cos the rent must be paid,
Some bonds severed and others made"

Apologies if wrong, I just rattled Weller's words off the top of my head.

Re: How good is the new Radiohead song?

I listened to it a lot last week while doing some decorating, and it struck me that like many of their Post Ok Computer albums, it's good background music but in no way moves you.
I took the dog out for a walk, stuck on The Bends on my Ipod and realised how great they used to be.

Re: Last book read

Just reading "Complicated Game" by Andy Partridge. A forensic analyis of how 30 of XTC's songs came together. I would kill for a similar output from the MiB. I kniw we have Song Stories but Andy felt even with a similar XTC book, there was so much left out. Hence a level of detail that fan...
