You can hold hands with Dr. Medulla for not getting the Stone Thames/Rock Hudson thing.
I can Beat that - I knew instantly that it was about Rock Hudson by the name with out hearing the song but it took me god knows how long of constant listening before i even realised it was about Aids / sexual diseases !!!! embarrassing as its the most obvious of lyrics "whoosh straight over my head". I think you need to live near the Thames to think of it as a river so i can forgive the Doctor as the Hudson is more world famous.
:) Mick Jones don`t drop his pants used to make me smile

I knew the A Party because Don used to explain that one in many interviews at the time .
Don't make any excuses for that dodgy Doctor. ;)

I just noticed that someone goes "ba-ba" in the left channel at the end of nearly every line in Medicine Show. This is all I can hear now.

Definitely. I thought from memory that the backing dancers moved in time with the "ba-ba" on the video, but maybe not. Still worth seeing, if only for John Lydon popping up.

The "ba-ba's" seem to have been removed from the 12" remix, track 1 on Disc 2 of the reissue.

Been listening to some of the earlier boots lately, some of the 86 shows. Beyond the Pale is great on these early ones with the different lyrics. I figured I'd take a stab at writing down the lyrics so, here they are. Theres one line I'm not too sure on.

Beyond the Pale (Jones)

If you don't know where I come from
You better steer clear of my trail
From the dark town of London
And thats way beyond the pale
Now my grandpa came from Russia
Stowed away hidden in some bales
And he took my grandma dancing
To the air raid sirens wail

In immigration, assimilation too
Of immigrant blood and money
If I was in those shoes
A black shirt with the Playboy bunny
I gotta get a message to em
Tell everybody the news
Can't you see whats coming

If you can't take care of yourself now
Why would you want a child?
You should know he ain't no baby
He's not blind to your running wild
So you better look at those trail paints (?)
And you run that golden mile
He who sits impatiently waits
Gets to be at the bottom of the pile

In immigration, assimilation too
Of immigrant blood and money
If I was in those shoes
A black shirt with the Playboy bunny
I gotta get a message to em
Tell everybody the news
Can't you see whats coming

The American flag by the freedom ride
Is a blast on Brixton trails
Do to what to them or they might
Get a job on British rails

So come on all you blue-eyes
I can hear you shouting "hail"
Soon you come to realize
What is way beyond the pale

Solo

So come on all you blue-eyes
I can hear you shouting "hail"
Soon you come to realize
What is way beyond the pale

I'm sure that sould be "Trail" not "Trial" in the opening line. Good work on the rest mate.

"So you better look at those trail paints (?)"

Could this be "So you better look at those trailblazers"?

Apparently, BAD just put out a live album from the '92 tour and didn't tell anyone about it
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

Is this the "Class of 92" CD? If so, it came out a few years ago. From the Viva Eight NME shows.

Which is just an audio-only version of the DVD available much earlier? Right?
