Hmmm still very quiet, if this doesn't move someone...

supported Stiff Little Fingers the other night - had a fab time as both player and punter.

Look at that. a typical loony herper :


ought to be locked up.

well im with totally with you on fave films (Deliverance, Alien), herps (the 'common' species) and some music (Doors) Gemma but LZ dont sink my boat, sorry.
well done on the guitar progress tho, but keep at the own-material creativity - thats where its at (IMHO).

remember this 80s track? HF did so well to smuggle this 'contraband' past the censors and onto the daytime playlist.
and you dont get many chart lyrics that marry Carry On smut ("i know a trick we ought to try, turn right over youll know why") to J'accuse ("he knows whats right and he knows that God is with him cos hes white" - a reference to JWs alleged racism) do you?

track, still relevant lyric. maybe Cameron should use it in an advertising campaign to try and lure more kids away from keypads and into the wonderful, wide blue yonder.

i see the connection (between HF and BWW) myself.
but im unsure about the first use of Burundi beats in 80s pop - was it BWW or Adam Ant?
chicken or egg? key orchestrator Malcolm McLaren ran with both the hare and the hounds there didnt he?
whatever!
assuming Anabella meant actual "snakes in the grass" (rather than idiomatic ones), i only hope she realises that despite being "absolutely free", these are shy animals in trouble and more deserved of our help than our "hunting and fishing"!    

if there was a musical genre called "Conservationist Rock" then my next suggestion would surely be a foundation stone of it - like the Stooges are to Punk and Goth.
it was written in 1968! Rachel Carson (5 years previous) echoes right though this catchy ditty eh?
just like GWITC, BYT is more apposite presently than ever. from our point of view, i cant think of any other song id rather promote right now.
suggestions?

Great choice Ben love Joni Mitchell, great voice, clever lyrics and great performer too.

Yep it seemed the Burundi beat might have been fed by McLaren to both BWW and Adam Ant, in the sense that material was provided to the then musicians of Adam & The Ants, who went on to perform as Bow Wow Wow, Adam Ant however had access to the material too. As it was though whatever the truth behind who pinched it from who, it worked well in pop songs.

Can't move on without some Adam & The Ants  Wink




Must have had some of the Ants earlier in the thread, but who cares eh Smile

wow. Rubella Ballet! im a fan too . at the time, while their peers were moping up a cul-de-sac in the grey Thatcherite climate, they kicked their way out with their refreshing infantile artwork and solar haberdashery - yet mature lyrics - eh?

following on from "Money Talks", instead of a tune, how about a poetic quote then?

"Theres enough for all our need, but not for all our greed"
