Re: Siouxsie and the Banshees - Where do I start?

There are a few of these sort of stripped-down demos on the CD version of Kaleidoscope including one of Happy House. I thought that McGeoch had left Magazine before he joined The Banshees? Regardless, the guitarists were always the moveable feast within the band with the core remaining very much the...

Re: Siouxsie and the Banshees - Where do I start?

If you only want to select from 5 then I'd suggest the following to give a good end-to-end view (if you can view music!) of the various line-ups and musical directions that they took. After The Stranglers the band I've seen the most are The Banshees approx 25 times and for me they were at their best...

Re: Pauline Murray And The Invisible Girls

"Coming Up For Air" CD found and ordered from Amazon for under a tenner. Invisible Girls album (and I think it was vinyl) was £53 minimum second hand!

Re: Michael Jackson R.i.p

...actually I feel a bit sad (much to my surprise). Yeah, he was weird and his music wasn't exactly to my taste but he was a true original and in a world of bland X Factor style pop copycats I think we should applaud that fact. A genuine one-off. A genuine talent. Yeah, sad. well said. Had 10 or so...

Re: Michael Jackson R.i.p

Michael Jackson's time of death has been given as 10-55 pm, in other words "when the big hand touches the little hand". To commemorate Jacko's death McDonalds have released the "McJackson Burger" a fifty year old piece of meat shoved between two 8 year old buns. Plenty more to co...

I meant Coke as in.....oh never mind! :grin: Jim I thought Diggle's drink was Guiness and Moet? Coke and Moet, apart from sounding like a bit of a girl's drink ( :oops: sorry ladies!) would surely be too fizzy to stay in the bottle/glass/whichever receptacle he had on stage with him that evening? S...

Re: Sophisticated Boom Boom

Interesting stuff, thanks Rodders.

I love the line "Is it about sex?", "No, it's about 10-30!".

Are you talking about the Invisible Girls album? If it has been released on CD at some point I'll have to seek it out.

Re: Sophisticated Boom Boom

Were they an all girl group from Glasgow??? Rodders The thought that they were Scottish was at the back of my mind and was why I described them as an "English language version of Kleenex/Lilliput" so as not to cause offence if described them as English and they weren't! Kleenex were defin...

Sophisticated Boom Boom

Following on from the Invisible Girls thread, I also have a Peel session on cassette by "Sophisticated Boom Boom" again from about 1980 but I've never found out if they ever made any actual records - does anyone know anything more about this band? They were in a similar vein to Delta 5, Th...

Re: Pauline Murray And The Invisible Girls

The same goes for "Coming Up For Air", the second Penetration album. "Moving Targets" has been released on CD and there is at least one compilation with some of the tracks from "Coming Up For Air" on it but not the whole thing, I would love to have that on CD and get th...
