Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Paul Simonon's bass guitar on the title track is only one of many hundred reasons why this record is so briliant.

Masterpiece.

Re: Is Think Tank an underrated masterpiece?

No, its crap. Except Ambulance, Out Of Time & Battery. The rest is dull and nowhere near the quality of the rest of the records. And dont get me started on track number 3, which I wont even mention by name.

Re: Dave interview (The MiddleEast online)

I think I read somewhere that "Dying isn't easy" is one of Smoggy's favourite songs. Send Smoggy to the race track and rehearse the tune in souncheck! :idea:

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

"our head of security , Smoggy, who has been with us for 25 years is a huge F1 fan and one of the reasons we decided to end the tour in Abu Dhabi was that he is having a big birthday this year and we couldn’t think of a better present or a more fun way to celebrate" Sounds like the main reason for t...

Re: Gig: Benicassim Festival, 18 July

Yeah, I was also listening last night. I was also a bit worried when they left out so many TMW songs, but if they want to create a great party this is the perfect setlist... It sounded amazing and I felt a bit gutted that I probably won't be able to see them this year... Next gig is Hong Kong. I exp...
