Perhaps, now, we're starting to understand why Sounds had to close. Their taste was somewhat... not bad so much, it was more like they were choosing records on a jukebox in a pub where you don't feel quite comfortable drinking. Still, who'd have thought all but one of their choices would be viewable around the world, on demand, twenty years in the future?

I don't know why but I'm finding it really funny that Kerrang (the tv channel) have ever shown This Corrosion. And worse yet I'm really enjoying the bloody song. Shit. Hey now now!

The amazing thing is that, even five years ago, it would have been astounding to group all those videos together without paying someone and/or having to download the videos.

my authentic original Sounds subscriber's t-shirt (resplendent with 5 'punks' of varying levels of facial/hirstute horrendous-ness) is the greatest item of clothing i own (well, robbed off Dad) size small, i think of my ability to keep wearing it with every burger I munch) Calorie controlled efficiency...

just thought i'd share...

merry xmas

Ah! Fields of the Nephilim. They were practically the house band of Nottingham Rock City in 87. There's a great bit of acting round about the 50 second mark when Carl Mc Coy looks at the camera, then remembers that he's supposed to be dead/unconcious.
The Sisters of Mercy, by the way, are the best band ever. There. I've said it.
