Re: Style Scott - Clash drummer?

Hey Pat responded! Well-spotted! I think I was able to unearth a few ‘new’ Clash facts for the piece, mostly thanks to The Baker (who didn’t want to be quoted directly) and the Electric Lady engineer. However, the Style info came from a Simonon quote in the expanded edition of the ‘Pink’ official C...

Re: Style Scott - Clash drummer?

Interesting. Google isn't turning up anything on this except the aforementioned article. I don't think I've ever read anything about this in any of the bios, including Pat's. I'd be curious if Mick or Topper could corroborate this. Or Pat to elaborate. Same, first I've heard of it. There is the pos...

Looks like only Junco Partner is recorded at Channel One. Article is written by Pat Gilbert, Sept 2020 Mojo magazine.

Style Scott - Clash drummer?

Reading a recent Mojo mag article on the recording of Sandinista!, Topper quit the session at Channel One as they couldn't get/keep a good drum sound, leaving house band drummer Style Scott to take his place. Is he uncredited on any of the tracks recorded at Channel One that made the final album?

Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 2 Track 5 Nominations

I have been trying to work out for a while which Siouxsie track to nominate. I'll nominate this one before leaving it too late. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ui94deJS7U0 The board doesn't like Siouxsie, I've tried too many times only to lose out to some top 40 nonsense or something. She may get s...

Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 2 Track 5 Nominations

I swear to god if you people don't vote this in, I am going to send the Mossad Van after you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiWOuGC7Qy0 I would have nominated this one but my discogs check showed it to be track 4. Please may you have an obscure south american cassette version where it's track 5.

Who knew the level of disco / moog appreciation round these parts. A stunning track on many levels, Donna's vocal is one take btw. A longer version for you to enjoy under your glitterball...

I nominated one song but really like the other. What to do, what to do?

Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 2 Track 4 Nominations

*buzz* "Too Many Creeps" is Side 2, Track 2. Which is a shame because it'd be really cool to get some now wave/mutant disco representation. https://www.discogs.com/Bush-Tetras-Wild-Things/release/2945115 Hello, I'm sorry about this - really sorry as this is a great track. I've been going to allmusi...

Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 2 Track 4 Nominations

Hello, I've been waiting for this one. It won't appeal to many with a high degree of pop sensibility but this was a tremendous no-wave song with a lot of pop appeal for a no-wave group. Dated looking video but still.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqn-1z-B4CM *buzz* "Too Many Creeps" is Side 2,...

Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 2 Track 3 Vote - Round 3

I could restart this round with "Groove is in the Heart" as a substitute. For fairness I think you should, or start from scratch. Otherwise you'll never know how the strategic voting went for and against the nominations in the earlier rounds. This round is bigger than Belarus! If the Pretenders had...
