My Lovin,
Metal Mickey (a proper 'memory' from my days at university)
The Happy Mondays were disqualified from a special edition of the BBC’s Bargain Hunt after Bez broke the show’s rules by artificially inflating prices, handing victory to Pulp.

a couple of goodish albums, but musically interesting, or different to the 60s stuff, no. Same applies to Lennon. One decent innovative album from Bowie, some fine singles from Slade (I had them in mind when I said two or three, the odd good pop B-side from Sweet, but Zep, Elt, McCartney - you can fuck right off. Boring, leprous shit I wouldn't want anywhere near my gruel. You'll be wittering on about Rod and the faces next.
Not that the Yanks were better, mind. Cocaine and California have a lot to answer for ;)

I've got quite a bit of time for early 70s Rod, solo, but The Faces were fucking terrible

tbh, I actually agree with this. Listened to and bought a fair bit of solo Rod in the early 1970s. I actually bought more English material in the early 1970s than I did in the 1960s, but I never let the truth get in the way of a good (or even run-of-the-mill) rant ;)
