Re: The KISS thread



Hahahaha. Don’t know if this has already been posted or not. “We tried reasoning with her and she just kept responding that she was a member of this “KISS” army.”
Which one are you Heston?

Hot take: Flowers of Romance is the best PIL album.

Re: Article on Gerald's CTC remix

Thank you again, guys, for your kind words! The article is really great written (and edited)! I‘m still overwhelmed by the response... I know of a bunch of small indie labels who do vinyl pressings. I’m not sure whether it would breach copyright (90% sure it probably would) but something like this ...

Re: Inferior GEER

As this is a GEER thread I'll leave this here. https://superdeluxeedition.com/news/thin-lizzy-rock-legends-box-set/ I’m mighty tempted but I’m afraid my CD collection mostly collects dust these days. I have the complete funhouse sessions boxset for example and it’s kind of nice and pretty to look a...

Re: The Kaleb Horton Deceased Latvian Foreign Minister Thread, 2021 edition

DMX was a big presence in my high school life and would pop up in grand ways (usually involving high school friends) in the years since. And Then There Was X was one of the few hip hop records I bought before really doing a deep dive at the end of high school and the big singles from those three al...

Re: New (to me) Joe vid

Interesting bit at the end there about Joe not liking braggadocios rap music. I wonder what he thought of NWA and Public Enemy. He bigs up Run DMC during the 1984 Scargill show. Dunno if they fit the bill for braggadocio rap. Hello, I wouldn't think any of the groups mentioned are considered bragga...

Re: What was the consensus surrounding Sandanista after its release in 81' amongst the Clash fanbase?

I suppose logistically there were two alternative routes. A single album packed with killer tunes that the critics, however hard they tried, would have found difficult to fault. I'm sure they'd have nitpicked anyway, about thinness of the sound, thematic subjects, or whatever else might occur to th...

Re: WW III poll

They shouldn't bomb the cities or the people, but they should bomb the nuke facilities they are building. Iran is a terror sponsoring state that is currently supplying weapons that kill U.S. soldiers and they want Israel and the U.S. wiped off the planet. They must not get nukes at all costs. Iran ...

Re: What was the consensus surrounding Sandanista after its release in 81' amongst the Clash fanbase?

It was my first Clash album after becoming a fan. I think all I'd heard at that point was hitsville and bankrobber so had no real idea what the clash should sound like. Pretty much loved it unconditionally and then moved onto the other stuff. As for reception, I'd wonder how they were ever going to...

Re: What was the consensus surrounding Sandanista after its release in 81' amongst the Clash fanbase?

I'm curious about this. Was there a huge backlash? Seems like most people embraced it. Those who were more close minded probably got off board with them after LC anyhow. Still I could see S! being hugely jarring just the same. I know for me personally it took years of fandom and maturity for me to ...
