Re: WHAT THE FCUK ARE YOU LOT LISTENIN TO - When it's not the fucking Stranglers??!

I got Spotify recently , almost by accident ( bought something for girlfriend at Xmas and it was an extra with PC World - thought I'd give it a go ) . Type in a few bands and do " related artists " ....basically something similar to what you are listening to . I found a whole host of punk bands I'd...

Re: Things you fecken love..........

Going to a record shop to buy a new release of the Stranglers. Even if it was just a twelve inch single with a new b side and maybe a new live track. Those were the days! Prior to release , I'd never heard Strange Little Girl , but one day in the 80's I wandered into HMV in Brum ,and this song came...

Did somebody say just eat.
Actually , when that comes on I feel like the person who smashed his TV during the Bill Grundy/Pistols interview .

Re: The Clash

I guess further to my comments above - The Pistols and The Clash were run pretty much by their managers ( Rhodes and McLaren ) , The Stranglers didn't have that , they were freer spirits in that sense .

Re: The Clash

With The Clash you always had a prominent frontman in the shape of Strummer with the political sloganeering/posturing etc. I think Strummer appeals to more people (as in Joe Public....speaking! :lol: ) as a frontman than say the subtlety of Hugh for example. Americans lapped it up and they were all...

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 . London Calling didn't do a lot for me , Sandanista I found awful , but then I generally don't like South A...
