I heard the Damned's 'Eloise' on the radio today. Had a fun old time growling along to it whilst freezing to death beside a wind swept Thames.
Some may say slaughtered is too strong a word...but I like the sound of it.

Early punk and even the beginning of post punk was great--but recently I've just gotten bored with music (don't tell my wife, she'll have me clear out the CD collection--'bout a thousand of 'em).  Really I just keep listening to Nick Cave over and over...

Damn I love that song!  Never heard it on the radio before.

Ahhhh, those early days of punk.  :cool: My first gigs were all punk gigs - X-Ray Spex, The Vibrators, XTC, The Lurkers... The first ever song I played live was Rockaway Beach by The Ramones. That was a long time ago. These days I listen to Clarence White, Merle Travis, &  Django Reinhardt. Ironically, all far older than any of those punk bands. Can't beat the pure sound of an acoustic guitar!

Planning is an unnatural process - it is much more fun to do something.  The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. [Sir John Harvey-Jones]

I'm a proud Cure fan and always will be.  I love old country (Kenny Rogers, Roger Miller, etc) but hate new country.  Rockabilly and Pshychobilly are in my top listens and I'm an 80's music freak. Guess I'm all over the place music-wise.

I once met the girls who ran The Cure's official fan club. Really nice people, and obviously big Cure fans themselves. They talked fondly of the band members. I wonder if they still run it... Christ -- that was twenty years ago :shocked: Probably not, then.

This is one of my favourite Cure tracks -- what's yours?

That's as annoying as hell, isn't it?. It seems to happen more and more often lately. The music industry is getting greedier by the day. The BPI go around factories and other work places now, demanding that employers buy a broadcast license or ban their staff from listening to radios at work. Can you believe that? Where the hell will it end?

Try this one -- same song, different video provider...

But even that doesn't work, because they restrict playback on 'certain sites'. WTF? ::)

Yes, that last one played, thanks!

The second one you posted looked like it was going to play (I at least saw the still image with the big triangle on it) but then it said it had been blocked for copyright reasons...

Regarding BPI going around to factories to shake down the employers... isn't that double dipping? I thought the radio stations covered the expense of licensing the music they play. Surely they don't intend to go to every household that has more than one occupant and try to get fees ??

Ok--the video for Caterpillar was always great; but speaking of Cure songs, what about Charlotte Sometimes or The Forest--both great songs and great videos...

Absolutely. The trouble is, the threat of litigation for tens of thousands of pounds is enough to induce most to pay the money for a broadcast license, rather than risk being prosecuted. They are now going around construction firms doing the same thing. I'd like to see how they got on if they came to us -- there's often a cacophony of sound on site, because all the old farts are listening to Classic Rock FM, the young bucks to Kiss 101, and the in-betweeners to Virgin Radio. Are they going to make everybody buy a license? I'll be telling them to go fuck themselves. As you say, the radio companies pay the broadcast fees so that their listeners can hear them. Whose radio they hear it through is broadly irrelevant, IMO. :pissed: Greed
