Two very good albums. I like both versions of 'Police Oppression' but I have to go with the single B-side as just like 'White Riot' I love that siren too much. Plus the single was my first exposure to the song. Still both are great.

Almost their entire output. Classic no wave, snotty anti-rock, utterly toxic to Hestons.
Has it got any tunes? I like simple things like that.
Fire it up on Limey Spotify. :twisted:
I don't have Spotify, thank fuck.
Do you not have some kind of free streaming service? I'm now amused to think about how you'd react to TJ&J.

He will obviously find it terrible and tuneless. If he liked it I would be stunned.

I hate the fact that I have Spotify (it is free) but it is too useful not to use.

But it's the possibility that he'll be traumatized—that's the juice I crave. :cool:

Same here mate, cracking song.

In Upstarts-related news, local gangster and ex-Upstarts manager Keith Bell (the subject of Shotgun Solution) died this week, not many tears shed around these parts. A horrible thug.

Also, we have another Xmas gig with the Upstarts in South Shields on Dec 27th, very much looking forward to it.
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.

I just listen to albums on YouTube, everything I like is pretty old and usually on there.

Yep I've read about Keith Bell being somewhat of a nasty piece of work

That's great news re : the gig wish I could attend that. A Xmas gig with the Upstarts and the Report would feel just like old times when bands would play Xmas gigs to alleviate the boredom of a boring 70's Xmas. I hope you have a cracker mate.

Billy Bragg, 'Don't Try This at Home' (1991).
"Sexuality" is such a perfectly joyous and pop-tastic song (in no small measure to Kirsty MacColl and Johnny Marr). I could easily hear Mick with Carbon Silicon or Joe with the Mescaleros covering this.

"Accident Waiting to Happen" is ferocious and heartbreaking with it's Kinks paraphrase: "...you're a dedicated swallower of fascism".

And "Tank Park Salute" is just obvious and harrowing, especially to anyone who's lost their da' recently (as I did July 3 of this year). Being a decorated combat Infantry veteran who, although a bit conservative in his general world-view, couldn't comprehend the world he was living in,in his final 4-5 years, and had bled and nearly lost his life for. At 20 years of age. Because "They" ordered him to. (happy Armistice Day, daddy).

He wouldn't make it 2 songs in.

Headroom, Head in the Clouds. Not really shoegaze, more like original psychedelic/stoner rock. Almost entirely instrumental. The main guitarist reminds me a lot of Levene, esp. circa Metal Box.

Elvis Costello, King of America. A stellar album that I almost always forget when listing my EC faves

It is a quality album. In a catalogue as broad and good as EC's it's easy to pass over some great stuff at times.
