Re: Johnny Marr

Seen him in concert last year doing the first album as well as a couple of Smiths and Electronic numbers and was very impressed. I have to say his second album for me is a little disappointing though. But each to their own.

Re: Inspiral Carpets - new record and interview

Looking forward to seeing the Carpets in Preston later this month. I also think the album is very good. I can also hear subtle Stranglers melodies in some of the tracks. Our Time sounds like something of '10' with the keyboard running through it.

its a guy called Simon Hough. Not a lot known about him but his vocal style does suit the tunes as he is quite deep.

Big Country tour

Saw Big Country last night doing a free warm up gig under the guise of 'Men Of Steel' at a small club in Clitheroe, Lancashire this precedes their anniversary tour of the album Steeltown. Well worth checking out. Thought they were excellent supporting the Stranglers and Boomtown Rats in the summer a...

Re: Hooky - Joy Division - Biography - MIB link

He says in the book that he saw the band at Bingley Hall around 1978 and whilst standing at the front wrote down all of JJ's kit on stage then went and bought it. Loved the JJ sound and the Simonon look. Didn't have good things to say about the road crew though when supporting the band at The Rainbo...
