:D

I never heard 999 and gladly agree with you, Clive.

I do have one LP by the Lurkers, God's Lonely Men I think it's called. I played it once but didn't make it to the end of side 1 (and I am quite forgiving).

So you are perfectly right.

I'm willing to send you that LP by the way.


Burn it.

My daughter is a fan. They seem kinda unobjectionable and unremarkable.

I will.

Or send it to Fartpants.

Steely Dan
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I've only really heard the track they made for the League of Legends World Championship (2014 I believe)... I don't need to hear anything else from them. It's bad, really bad.

Was about to say Dixie Dregs but apparently I heard two albums of theirs at some point - same for Rainbow. I guess I'll go ahead and say The Black Crowes, then.

The day you get into Steely Dan is the day I know for certain life has beaten you down.

I'll say Pop Will Eat Itself, or any other 'grebo' band. I heard a Ned's Atomic Dustbin song once and that was enough.

I can't believe that I forgot Radiohead first time around. Still avoiding them.
And various cups forced me to listen to (as opposed to being adventitiously and unknowingly exposed to) Led Zep, King Crimson, Kiss, Genesis and a few others too traumatising to remember.

Don't give up on PWEI, their first album (Box Frenzy) is something that I hold quite dear, despite/because of it's half-arsed attitude and puerile humour. "Inside You" and "Evelyn" are especially great.
