But I usually listen the the Buzzcocks Spiral Scratch on vinyl. Amazing shit.
Get Dream Police. It's not their best, but its their campiest, plus with most ludicrous album art!
I've mentioned this before in the misheard lyrics thread, but for years I thought the chorus to Dream Police was "the teeth police live inside of my head".
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Totally brilliant record, although the electric jug gets to me after a while. Been listenin to some Roky lately too.
It was recorded by Roky's first group The Spades originally.

I've been playing Don't slander me by Rocky.

I still can't find Astral Weeks. I've been to about eight stores in the area (two or three pretty regularly) and I keep finding the same damn albums.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

After buying a new needle... they cost a fortune these days, I had to fork out €95! At this moment I´m listening to a compilation album "the James Deans´of the dole queue", with bands such as the Wigsville spliffs, Inspector tuppence & the sexy firemen, the Lone stars... good 80´s Rockabilly!

One piece of irrelevant wisdom: Since the CD, we´ve all stopped "listening" to music, we just consume music.
Ask yourself: When was the last time you listend to an album from the 1st note to the last without zapping forward to the next song or zapping back to the one you thought was the best so far?

About 5 minutes ago.

Minus a 5 minute pause while I ran a vacuum.

Regardless of format, I rarely ever skip around tracks on an album. I'll listen to my music on shuffle, but when I listen to the album I listen to the whole damned thing.

It hasn't got "Soul Brother Clifford" on it. :disshame:
If you like the Equals that's a song you NEED to hear.
