That last part of "Alternative Ulster" sounds just like "Making Your Mind Up" by Bucks Fizz. :shifty:

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

Heh. Marky, you're the best, mate.

I also realized the other day that "The Olympian" (Skids) and "To Be Someone" sound pretty similar.

It must be a wonderful thing to have such fine ears.

You're a fine fellow too mate.

Adamson was an admirer of Weller. So I expect it's a deliberate steal. I remember seeing Big Country live when they first stared out and Stuart would always sing the opening line from Boy About Town then launch into Fields of Fire. Of course Big Country supported The Jam on some of their final dates.

Sounds very plausible. The timeline looks about right, too.

The surgery's worked for Shatner. Man looks about 20 years younger than he is.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Have to make a point of using this in my intro lecture, either as an ice breaker or to wind it up:
