Re-'Planet Of The Apes' : What a shite ending in the re-make :!: :evil: Couldn't agree more - "Guess what ? I just travelled 99,000,000,000,000,000 miles in about 1 minute and happened to land in a famous pond in Washington DC". Liked the fact that all the cops were apes but why couldn't he have cr...

There is an excellent 4-CD anthology out there called 'Plastic Box' - covers the 'best of..' but also includes a couple of 12" mixes and BBC sessions.

It has something for the completist - but overall is an really good introduction to the band as it 'covers all the bases'.

Recommended.

That line about the Puerto-Rican in the adam ant song doesn't really seem "class", maybe more...um, racist...." Yeah - maybe you are right, however I still found it funny and it was not really an anti-Puerto-Rican comment when taken in context of the song, which maybe you are not aware off. If some...

I got into them in '77 after seeing their performance of 'Go Buddy Go' on TOTP - it was the whole talk 4th form assembly in school the next day. Had a ticket to see them play Belfast later that year but the gig was cancelled - they were the first 'major' punk band to dare come over to Northern Irela...

Not so much a guilty pleasure 'cos I can put up a reasonably sound excuse - I have all Adam and the Ants singles (including his solo stuff - and all the Ants albums too). OK - bear with me here.... I used to listen to The Peel Show (77-79/80) and remember hearing the Ants first session. They did thi...

They are playing Belfast on 23rd March - but I'm not sure if I will go. We saw them at the Mathew Street Festival last summer before the Stranglers. Although it was a great set and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them again (last time was '78 in Belfast !!) they don't excite me much any more. Having sai...

Arctic Monkeys & Nosferatu influence

Anyone heard Arctic Monkey's 'The View From The Afternoon' (track 1 on their debut album)?

Paul - driving again? :grin: :grin: Keep those feet in the car this time :wink: As for me - of course I'd be up for it, but again depends on venue (what with flights - do Easyjet fly from Belfast to Poole??) Anyway - I'll wait and see what happens. It would be good to see you again Paul, specially a...
