999 in Northwich, Preston and Boro. Good gigs and good turnouts, nothing from the upcoming new album yet (which sounds really good). Great support acts too- Kopek Millionaires and Biteback in Northwich. Lurkers and a really good local band called 'Left' in Preston. At boro it was Bermondsey Joyriders who I was disappointed by and the brilliant Duncan Reid and the Big Heads who were amazingly good.
Jaya The Cat in Leeds tonight.

A "cover", but with new lyrics (not written by TV)!

Toxik Ephex (feat. BCWC) –  Refer-en-dum Lies

One of the best 1977 Punk Singles, ‘Gary Gilmore’s Eyes’ was a Top 20 hit for the Adverts. Forty two years on it has been re-worked into a simple, direct, no-nonsense punk anthem with the aim of pointing out the bleedin’ obvious before Thursdays General Election. The media and the Tories lie. Constantly.  Don’t Believe the Tripe.

The Black Cat Workers Collective say:  Anarcho-syndicalists would usually advocate spoiling your ballot. That said, the forthcoming UK General Election on the 12th December 2019 at least affords scope to mount a damage limitation exercise.  With that in mind we teamed up with legendary Aberdeen punk band Toxik Ephex, to rework Gary Gilmore’s Eyes into Referendum Lies. (full text here)

TV Smith told me:  They sent me the lyrics as an idea and I said, great, but regrettably I didn’t have time to get involved with the recording. I was very pleased when they went ahead and recorded it anyway.  I stand by every single word of it… even though none of them are mine!


Brilliant!

Recently, scientists discovered a fossil of a sea creature that's 430 million years old, and because of its likeness to the sea creature described in Lovecraft's novel, they decided to name the fossil after it.

Guess I will have to change to Windows10 soon. New computer or not, is the question...  ::)

Leider wird man irgendwann nicht drum herumkommen

Ja, leider wird der Support für Windows7 eingestellt, also bleibt nur noch der Umstieg.  :(

World Chat / Re: The greatest Rock'n'Roll band of all time - The Rolling Stones

December 1969: The Rolling Stones are capping off their decade of triumph with a new album. It’s called Let It Bleed. The songs ooze doom, death, darkness, and destruction. Right from the start, it’s an album full of bad news, from the opening guitar shivers of “Gimme Shelter.” “That’s a kind of end-of-the-world song, really. It’s apocalypse; the whole record’s like that,” Mick Jagger told Jann S. Wenner in his 1995 Rolling Stone interview. “It’s a very rough, very violent era. The Vietnam War. Violence on the screens. Pillage and burning.”

Fifty years after it came out, Let It Bleed sounds timelier than ever. Amid all the chaos, the Stones made a masterpiece that holds up as the ultimate rock & roll album for bleak times, which is why it feels like the most 2019 album of 1969. Their darkest album, yet also their funniest — not to mention their greatest. They dropped Let It Bleed in the final days of a decade that didn’t turn out the way they or anyone else hoped. “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Monkey Man,” “Midnight Rambler” — these are warning shots, serving notice that the Sixties’ dreams are about to cannonball into Brian Jones’ swimming pool, never to return alive.

Famously, when they played Atlantic City in 1989, the Stones refused to go on when they found out the casino boss was at the gig. Keith pulled out a knife, slammed it on a table and declared, “One of us is leaving the building — either him or us.” The owner backed down and left. Thirty years (and a few bankruptcies) later, he’s now the president, playing “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at campaign rallies. The names and details change, but every cop’s a criminal and all the sinners saints. That’s why Let It Bleed sounds so timely — no matter what disaster is going down, Mick sings like he saw it coming.

Cheers me dear.  1 question  The Adverts sung twice in Sheffield?



It was already listed on the setlists as opening & closing the show and I've just checked my recording and TV says that they are going to finish the way they started or words to that effect. The Music Machine gig from earlier in the year also has "The Adverts" opening & closing although I don't have a copy of this (hint to anyone who'd like to rectify this!). Was this not around the time that Howard "disappeared"? TV is definitely playing guitar at the Sheffield one. Perhaps he hadn't learnt any other songs?! All three setlists are the same apart from the fact that "The Adverts" didn't close the Glasgow show. Or perhaps it did? The old bootleggers trick of making sure that only you have the complete show may have come into play.


Mmm we will never know...
