Is there ever going to be another one of these?
Fuck me, I hope not!
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Nah they ain’t too bad some of em, although some of the vocals are truly awful, no enthusiasm at all. Just sounds like they couldn’t be arsed.
I could knock out a straight cover version like most of these in an hour or so but why? (doesn’t include mixing) We’ve already got these songs by a band called The....Stranglers! Yeah remember them?
If I was to do summat I wouldn’t do a straight copy cos that would be so fucking boring, try summat different FFS.

Look here’s an example - Walk On By, The Stranglers really gave that a kick up the arse and came up with IMHO one of the best cover versions ever and it included a huge amount of creativity and originality too, all sadly lacking in most of these Stranglers cover versions.
All I’m saying is try looking it from that perspective.

I think they're all fantastic. Correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I'm aware none of the peeps involved are professional musicians. A lot of them are different to the originals and very inventive......Blimey you're never feckin happy are you Arthur? Life must really suck for you.

Well said Jim.

And Arthur- I'd suggest re reading the original posts, I've helpfully supplied a link,
then, mibee, shutting the fuck up, a bit.

an example-

Its An Idea.

I wouldn't presume for a second that anyone would regard this (if it ever fucken becomes a "this")
as a must-have addition to their prized collection.
...

It would just be some fans having a laugh, and celebrating their band.
Fuxake, I know it'll be no mispressed 4-D Raven for the M!B-who-has-to-have-everything
to salivate over.


and

It's quite a cool idea though, innit? I mean, even if we decide, for whatever reason, not to be arsed doing it,
it is a cool idea- A fans' Forum producing, between them, a covers album of their band's work.
...
It's a laff, innit?



Innit :smt102

You may also be amused to see early talk of your good self maybe doing a track or two for the Forums album,
but as I recall you failed to deliver much except talk.
:smt006
...I'm making lists of all the people I love,
and all the cunts that should fuck off...

I do apologise Jim, I obviously didn’t get the memo, I thought that as one gets older you are supposed to moan all the time! (and still do the odd wind up)
That’s what old folk do innit? and I guess I am quite old so....
:P
And btw nope life is very beautiful thanks. There’s a few forum members on here who I won’t mention (you know who they are) who moan constantly about EVERYTHING The Stranglers & Hugh no matter what they do or don’t do, I very rarely do that as I’m still in love with the band and Hugh. Life would certainly suck without them.
