Re: Public Image Limited

This almost completely mirrors my evaluation. Musically, it's exceptional, building on an already immense foundation; when Wobble subs for Lydon, it loses steam. Either make it truly instrumental or find a more effective singer. And I agree that "Public Image" is the least compelling of the re-reco...

Re: Public Image Limited

Listening now...here goes! 1. Albatross This is a beast of a track and cuts across really powerful. Bass heavier with way more thunderous drums than the original. The guitar is less Levene and more rock. The overall feel is like a huge collision between "Metal Box" and dare I say it "Album". 2. Memo...

4. There's a Tear in My Beer - Hank Williams
God, that is such a devastatingly sad song.
5. Titties 'n' Beer - Frank Zappa
That … isn't.
Although it is kinda devastatingly sad.😉

Re: Public Image Limited

Say, Marky, you never weighed in on Wobble's re-recording. I'm listening to it right now and just in awe of what a groovy work-out it is. It reinforces what a remarkable feat it was in 1979, that it can be reworked (but not radically) and sound so damned contemporary yet also out of time. I've had ...

Re: Return of the Mighty Observations Thread

This bit gave me a wry smile.

“You know what. It [not playing it] would do me a favor,” he went on. “Because when I fall under a bus, they’ll play “She,” “Good Year For The Roses,” and “Oliver’s Army. I’ll die, and they will celebrate my death with two songs I didn’t write. What does that tell you?

3) Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham. Audiobook. 1951. An excellent post-apocalyptic novel about most of the world going blind and then get attacked by giant walking plants. Totally and brilliantly straight-faced in its approach, it is a definite influence on the zombie movies and TV shows that ha...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQHhqDRn4_c Cobra Kai is the greatest love letter to Kids of the 80's ever. At least in America (you Limey's will have to chime in on your own behalf). Every decade gets rhapsodized about at some point in the future. The 80's were the decade when I was a kid: when I ...
