Some great songs here, love Siouxsie and that was a great cover.

Embarrasingly had to look up who did the original Happiness is a Warm Gun. Reminds me of hearing comfortably numb, for the first time....by the Scissor Sisters, seemed to amuse the people I was with at the time that I had managed to avoid Pink Floyd almost entirely (bar the period when they had a few chart entries) and they seemed to feel I'd missed out never having heard the original. Played it once, that was quite enough :-)

Like the contributions from Chompy and Karma, standard nu metal entry and diddly country style from chompers and inevitably heavier from KD. Will look up the bloke you mention as well.

In the nu metal and heavier genres I think Korn do a pretty incred version of Alice in Chains 'Would' but although I'm not remotely a Mettalica fan (probably know 3 songs) this cover by korn from the MTV awards is pretty stunning imo - love Korn and JD's voice.

Stuart Adamson's daughter covering one of Big Country's anthems.

Love that, you can see she's his daughter. Their performance of this live on The Tube I think is one of the most uplifting things I ever watch and return to a fair bit

I was shocked to learn of his abduction.

R.I.P.

Likewise, pretty shocking stuff.

Our Lips are Sealed his cover and the original one of my fav tracks. When you're most of our ages , fav tracks means being in the top few hundred I think - Gangsters probs in that category too. Deffo becoming a tad concerned at the number in my age cohort dropping off currently

Think "Our Lips are Sealed" was jointly written with one of The Go-go's, so wasn't really a cover.  Preferred the Go-go's version, but pretty sure I heard it first, and that always biasses you.  Have heard The Funboy Three's version multiple times since last night and keep thinking they should play the better one.  Don't think anyone has played a Specials song on 6 music whilst I was listening either.

Hadn't appreciated it was a joint thing. I'd forgotten a few specials tracks and found quite a few others to enjoy last night. Nice trip down memory lane

One of my favourite You tube rabbit holes I disappear down, after a drink usually, is looking for cover versions of some of the songs I love the most.

Tennage Fanclub would be in, lets say, my top 20 favourite artists of all time, not 'arf. So sad , when Gerry went his own way and now you can only go and see different bits of them but not all at the same time.

Will post from time to time, more like a permanent record of days when I had a drink.

Here's an amateur cover that I really enjoy of one of their great tracks, might not be unconnected to the attractive girl in this band. Would love to know of any other covers people enjoy, never too old to learn

Went to see the Stranglers this year. Such a great back catalogue and latest album pretty good too - JJB still looks great at 70 or so, was so enjoyable. Been a while since JB played with them but acknowledged by them all as the driving force behind the band. Number 2 on my spotify this year as well. Pretty much love them tbf

Football wise, been one of the better world cups I've watched - also quite good not seeing pics coming back of marauding hoolies on the street.

I protested the world cup for a week or so, not for any particularly politicql reasons, just didn't like the prem being interrupted.

England probably wont win but, relative to the quality of the other teams this time round, should have as good a chance as for many years.

I'm keeping schtum.

Anyone seen Archer lately?

Haha, keeping schtum is the only sensible perspective but man it's exceeding all expectations. Pundits comparing us with Lester winning is a bit below the belt though, although the last 5 or 6 years probs makes it a reasonable comparison.

Shame the Spuds have overturned a few late losing positions this season - mind the gap. Come on the Lily Whites

Unforgettable bass lines - deffo feels like too many contemporaries dying

Bit mellower than I would normally listen to but watched a few live performances and easy to see the quality and why someone would get into them - never ceases to amaze me

a) how many bands I've never heard of (even from a time when I was listening to lots of new music)
b) how so many bands just plough on in their own lane making non main stream interesting/great music

When I approached my 60th I decided to get back into going to gigs. Something I spent so much of my youth doing but had gotten out of the habit.. just seemed to be too many other commitments. Just saw Ride at the weekend for the second time this year, so good for the soul and feelings of aliveness to indulge and do these things again


Yeah, entirely different vibe to most bands I have seen.  Alan, her husband, was inviting everyone to her funeral earlier, can't see that happening with many bands that have been going that long.  Just stayed on the brink of fame throughout.

There are loads of bands I have missed over the last 20 years.  Frequently find myself hearing something fresh on 6 Music only to discover they have been going 10 years and are on their 5th album.

Did you get the latest Ride album? I heard it was good and meant to get it, but never got round to it.  I have a couple of the early ones.

Think you need to get to a gig sometime Tom.  Think gig crowds are a lot different than when I was younger, with a lot of older folks going.  Dare say it is different at k-pop gigs.

I share that experience of discovering ‘established’ bands when they are well into their career. Growing up with The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks, The Who, Cream, Led Zeppelin, proper musician Genesis and let’s not forget Pink Floyd it was so easy to just ignore the stuff that followed. Although I did have a spell of getting into Northern Soul in my teens.

Gigs don’t attract me much these days, mostly because a weekend at Glastonbury offers so much more than the experience of paying large amounts of money just to see one band. Last live gig was Elbow at Jodrell Bank, but that was totally outside.

I see a lot of smaller venue comedy acts which probably occupies the time that could have been spent on music. Wouldn’t go to an arena comedy if you offered to pay me to be there though.

Despite always being slightly tempted because I've watched some great performances from there, I really can't imagine anything much worse than actually attending Glastonbury.

Anyway, back to death - apols for the derail
