Gregg Rolie - Too late, too late.

Some interesting references to imagery of Hell, etc., to characterise temptation, entrapment and so on. Slightly mild, but nonetheless does seem to be aiming for something more pronounced and less conventional with its imagery.

Noah Fence. If Killing Joke had made as much money as Paul Weller maybe they would have joined Red Wedge to safeguard their investments. We'll never know.

Well, I doubt it but I only posted it as some interesting and energising music of the eighties to compare with the beige drudge of Comrade Weller.
I've worked in the studio of the extremely wealthy Youth(the bass player). As a pop producer the guy was a a fucking wizard. As a person he was a stoner hippy woo woo merchant of the worst type. I don't supposed that's changed now. Anyway, he is hardly the type to join Red Wedge. I would also suggest that he is considerably richer than Weller. He's an incredibly successful songwriter and producer as well as an astute businessman. He masterminded the career of Bananarama and has a very successful record label.
God knows why I'm telling you all this. None of it alters the fact that Weller is the most boring cunt to ever catch the focus of the Noah eye.

Thanks Noah Fence. I don't think I have any friendship on this forum so yours would be very much appreciated. I like Killing Joke. I saw them at the Hammersmith Palais. I think it was the first (and only) time I inhaled tear gas – the bouncers let some off in the lobby.

I think one day you will have a change of heart about the songwriting of Paul Weller. Stranger things have happened.

Hmmm, I could also become a Labour voter or start enjoying sticking pins in my eyes but I doubt it. I could even become a Billy Bragg fan! Ah stop it Noah, now your just being silly!
BTW, embedded videos won't play on my fancy new phone so I've no idea what that song is like. I do remember though that Sugar Minot had a spring instead of a neck resulting in a very wobbly head!

Also, I used to have a non sexual crush on Youth when I was young. I thought he looked so cool and glamorous and then later on I met him a number of times it was very disappointing to find he was a smelly hippy with a similar conversational style to Neil from The Young Ones. Never meet your idols, they'll let you down. Unless they don't - David Icke was fucking great!

I met Mick Jones. He met my expectations. I still love him.

Strange Things is an excellent tune. Type the artist name and title into youtube.

Hmmm, the horribly trendy Clash are another one of my pet hates. Love Complete Control though. The second best 70s punk record.

Theres so much music I like, guess at the moment my guilty pleasure would have to be Vaporwave and the brilliant trend of mixing Vaporwave with The Simpsons https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTfa-9aCTYg

My favourite are the Mick Jones compositions: Lost in the Supermarket and Train in Vain. You beg the question, what was your favourite punk song of the 70`s? Or you could let us guess. You may have mentioned it. Was it by The Damned?

Truly. captures the spirit of 70s punk. Shallow but full of energy.

Just learned that Guy Clark died, May 2016. Great Texas songsmith.

Blimey, this new fashion craze for dying amongst musicians is getting out of hand. That said, ideally hope the Annie Lennox and Billy Bragg get radio able real soon.

Annie Lennox I agree with but Billy Bragg should stick around long enough to have a nervous breakdown. The Damned are alright but sound more US than UK and I don't think it was called punk until it reached the shores of Britain.

Auld-bold's selection was good and it is sad that the man has passed away. Potrokin's tunes are good too. Roots Reggae is king:

I don't actually care too much about 70s punk. It was 40 years ago and was very much a thing of the moment. What bores me on this thread is the lack of pop music, like commission are too cool for that shit. Duh. That said, I may be wrong coz I haven't clicked on every link. If so then my bad.

Thanks you guys, I really appreciate the effort but I'm afraid those 2 pop tracks don't count. Why, I hear you ask? It's simple really, they don't count coz I don't like them.

I liked this, good lyrics and the video’s choreography is excellent (in a smarty-pants sorta way).

Shit, what's a man gotta do to get a down vote around here theses days? It's just not fair.

Talking of bums oot the windae, did you see the poem I posted about Old King Cole, written by my innebriate, octergenarian, inventor neighbour for my kids when they were little?

God bless Wee Annie's bum.
