I've decided that Love Kills is a weird, flawed masterpiece.
Seeing that Bowie recently came out of retirement, I wonder if Mick in particular was thinking about the Bowie model when it came to breaking America. Bowie didn't do much with his heavy guitar rock here and didn't hit the Top 10 until he started playing disco and such. I wonder if that was a factor.
Nah, the film's garbage. The less to do with it, the better. Read it as Joe's love letter to Topper.

Tell me the truth, though- wouldn't it be a million times better if all the guitars sounded like this on the whole record? The Clash's real sound - flamethrowing guitars drenched in reverb and layers of distortion- kicks the living shit out of any of the studio-created substitutes.
Yes absolutely.

The 101ers had some musical chops. But fuck me what a lack of style. Can you imagine the LC video with Don Lets shooting 5 tramps outside Lisson Grove labour exchange.

It is a classic 1974 pub rock album, very much like Ducks Deluxe or the early Graham Parker* material. Very much a retreat to the comforting fantasies of the past in the face of an uncertain future. But the 101ers were a bit more frantic and cathartic, whereas LC is more sedate and mannered.

*I think Lover's Rock sounds exactly like something off of Squeezing Out Sparks.

I think the 101ers hold up a lot better than other pub rock groups. I'd rather listen to the Elgin compilation than Down By The Jetty or whatever, at any rate.

Yes but by then Joe would sacked everyone else and brought in a guy who could play guitar, a guy who looked good on stage and a great drummer.

...and then Bernie would've ditched them and brought in some synths and a beat box.

I think the recorded versions of LC and TiV are perfect. I like records to sound like records and live to sound like live.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I'm happy in both camps.
