Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

Just reading a rather uplifting interview with Marianne Faithfull which mentions a collaboration with Mick which on further digging, i learn is guitar on the track Give My Love To London. Nice to know as i really love that song.

Re: What Are you Listening to Right Now?

Toss up between Dylan and Bill Callahans Gold Record for me. Though have to admit i've probably listened to no more than a tiny percentage of new releases, find it hard to keep up these days.

Re: Top 5 Music Videos

Casbah London Calling The Call Up Tommy Gun Radio Clash Why no video for Know Your Rights? Lead off single from a new album, even though it should never have been a single. SISOSIG or Casbah would have went top ten even without Top of the Pops if they'd been released before Combat Rock. They were c...

Re: Top 5 Music Videos

Never really bothered much with music videos but i remember seeing the one for TIRC around the time i got into the band and it was cool.

Re: The Dictator observations thread.

For history nerds, the story of how the New York Times got the Pentagon Papers is not how we believed: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/07/us/pentagon-papers-neil-sheehan.html Basically, reporter Neil Sheehan stole them from Ellsberg. A really fascinating piece and will, i'm sure, make a riveting mo...

Re: Video Killed the Radio Star

Haven't seen this in years, all i can really remember about it is shanes cackling which for some reason i found hilarious at the time. Would be nice to watch again. Frank Murray was a total gent and great storyteller.

Re: Heston and Marky's Friday Top 5

Am I the only one here who doesn't give a shit about the Beach Boys? I'm a bit different in that i have come to liking them a lot since i started listening to them 9-10 years ago, but i still never got into pet sounds. Maybe i was expecting too much having heard so much about it, just dunno really....

Re: Clash ebooks

Don't have a kindle but they somehow downloaded straight to the Overdrive library app on my phone so great to have them there. Very generous offering and outstanding first post!

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

Concur with the comment about Out of Time being uneven. But i would say when it's great, that album is really great so still gets the greatness tag from me, despite the couple of obvious clangers. I also think objectively SHP is not a bad pop-rock song, it's just quite annoying after a few too many...

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

I also heartily endorse the general tribute album thumbs down. Off hand, can't think of a single one i've ever wanted to repeat listen. I know some liked it ok, but apart from the brilliant mikey dread take on SoS, i thought the S! project thing was pretty awful overall. The few I can remember liki...

Re: The Clash observations thread.
