Thanks for sharing that video, never seen it before
It's from a documentary called "Completely Pogued" which is excellent. Strummer guests in places. It's up on YouTube in parts...

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Car broke down the other day so got a lift in with a colleague. It's a 1 hour round trip so time for a good few tracks on his playlist. They were unexceptional at best aside from this beauty. Cool, heavy riff, really love the music . Vocals a little cheesy but work well in the context.

Look of the lead singer is a little cheesy, too... ;)

Who'd a thunk when the Go-Go's returned, they also put out a complete kick-ass song like this?

Belinda Carlisle really belts it out, too. She never stood out to me as a singer in any way, but this is solid rock expression.

Hello,

Wow. That's really obvious (I don't mean to downplay your discovery, Marky). I wonder if anyone in the Vibrators contacted anyone in the Only Ones - what's the time difference between the release dates?
