I'll appreciate the herb you bring for me, knotty dread

suffering made me realise

Oops, you've given yourself away there Sleeper. The Jam, the music world's most blatant example of horrible ladishness!

You're a very cryptic fellow Whirwind. Are you with me or against me? If you are with me my did you post this horrendous slice of dreary pre-dad rock? If you're against me please justify your bizzare stance. I challenge you Sir! Justify your position!

Noah, you describe Down in the tube station and The Jam as 'horrible ladishness'. For that I was admonishing you and pleading with you to listen to the lyrics – they are not laddish. As for 'dreary', that is quite a good description of this song but that just shows the skill of the songwriters to reflect their environment. Have you ever been to Slough? As long as you're not against me, I'm not against you. I don't know what 'pre-dad' means.

You're actually suggesting that I listen to the ghastly thing? Ew, what an appalling idea!
The ladishness is not necessarily the fault of the band but Comrade Weller's following have always been revoltingly laddish. I can't help but be prejudiced against him for always having been a particularly irritating form of liberal lefty. Oh, and then there's the personality bypass.
Weller fits nicely into the genre of 'Dad Rock' these days. Hope that explains.
Anyways, don't worry about it, I'm a well known troll on Libcom music threads, all sorts have been subjected to my peculiar scrutiny - Jimmy Hendrix, The Clash and Patti Smith have all been grist to my mill.
Seriously though, I can't stand po faced, pop denegrating, 'credible' music snobbery. I'm simply trying to redress the balance.
You talk of lyrics skilfully reflecting their environment, well this does so with equal skill plus it's funny and entertaining. This is a very smart song and video and it drives me crazy that it goes unnoticed as such and is condemned to the cultural dustbin. I am serious about this comrade.

Midnight Lyrics:

Quote:
The distant echo
Of faraway voices boarding faraway trains
To take them home to
The ones that they love and who love them forever
The glazed, dirty steps, repeat my own and reflect my thoughts
Cold and uninviting, partially naked
Except for toffee wrappers and this morning's paper
Mr. Jones got run down
Headlines of death and sorrow, they tell of tomorrow
Madmen on the rampage
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight
I fumble for change, and pull out the Queen
Smiling, beguiling
I put in the money and pull out a plum
Behind me
Whispers in the shadows, gruff blazing voices
Hating, waiting
"hey boy" they shout, "have you got any money?"
And I said, "I've a little money and a take away curry,
I'm on my way home to my wife.
She'll be lining up the cutlery,
You know she's expecting me
Polishing the glasses and pulling out the cork"
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight

I first felt a fist, and then a kick
I could now smell their breath
They smelt of pubs and wormwood scrubs
And too many right wing meetings
My life swam around me
It took a look and drowned me in its own existence
The smell of brown leather
It blended in with the weather
It filled my eyes, ears, nose and mouth
It blocked all my senses
Couldn't see, hear, speak any longer
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight
I said I was down in the tube station at midnight

The last thing that I saw
As I lay there on the floor
Was "Jesus saves" painted by an atheist nutter
And a British rail poster read "have an away day, a cheap holiday
Do it today!"
I glanced back on my life
And thought about my wife
Cause they took the keys, and she'll think it's me
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight
The wine will be flat and the curry's gone cold
I'm down in the tube station at midnight
Don't want to go down in a tube station at midnight

Going to Barbados is fun, I'll grant you but Barbie Girl is smart, funny and much better in the music department too.

An Autumn for Crippled Children. Really crap band name, but decent music. In general I tend to listen to a lot of the post-black metal stuff these days.

many years ago, I came to the conclusion that there has never been a beautiful beat than there on this song. Still holds true

Er, I'm in a band! This is a recording of part of our first gig in a new format and style. Bit shambolic but not a bad effort unrehearsed. Playing some gigs and festivals over the course of this year so if you like techno house type stuff get on down!
