Yeah, two good tracks. Got that album. What was wrong with the live show?
Talking bullshit on a slow repeat.

Never saw em live but I've seen vids etc. I hope Mick Jones has got rid of that Bond Electric Glide (or whatever the hell it's called) guitar.

Got the 1st four albums, 'Tighten Up Volume 88' is quite good. The other 3 aren't much cop though and I don't know what later albums were like. Not massively excited about this tour but as they're playing Nottingham I might make the effort.

Saw them at the Powerhouse in Brum - 85 I think - they were ok but saw them the next year and they were very good and the last time i saw them was at the Tic Toc in Cov I think in 92 or 93 - I seem to recall they played reading either that year or the next one - I dunno memory is fading fast :grin:

Also saw Mick Jones in Carbon/Silicon over here in orlando last year and they played a couple of BAD songs in with Genx etc and they were excellent but - I would definately see BAD again if they come over to Orlando

These guys were an event in their own right

The music was a breath of fresh air when they came out
A real blend of creativity & excitement

Great to dance to

Best gig was at Leicester Square - might have been the Hippodrome

Great to watch then

Great to watch again.

Encore une fois

Carnt remember it was so long ago.
But apart from the 2 tracks they just want my cup of tea, could of been the best live band in the world but just not for me.
