So there might be something to these "Sex Pistoleros" then?

Poppycock!

There's something nasty about NMTB. There's a nihilism and a real sense that the music is right in front of your face and about to hit you. Not yer plodding long-haired rockers in waistcoats. :x

In truth, I always thought the first Iron Maiden album sounded more like punk than metal.Its a far cry from the later stuff.Really dirty and basic.
Im not saying its NMTB, but it really isnt ploddy.

You can dress it up anyway you like Prof, but its just another heavy metal album to these ears. Its slow and graceless, pompous and lazy. It has one or two good tunes on it, and a load of attitude, but not nearly enough to save itself from shooting itself in the foot. The truth is that Johnny Rotten wasn't able to turn Jones matlock and cook away from being the pub rockers thay subsequently turned out to be.

Nothing like Metal, even if it's heavy.

Iron Maiden did nothing of any merit, why are they being discussed in the same breadth?

Musically, lyrically, vocally, thematically any "ally" you like its a totally different beast. You know that - you're just trying to be controversial.

meh...

Its a lost cause anyway. That album carries so much baggage with it, i dont suppose any of us is in a position to judge it impartially. I never liked it, the noise or the sound. The politics were good, but did they really need to multitrack the guitars quite so much? And it is pedestrian at best. The damned debut was so much punkier.

It's not pedestrian at all. It sounded like nothing that had gone before it. At least to these ears which admittedly were 13 at the time, but even now it has a power and some of the tracks, especially Bodies, are just filled with venom. Pedestrian? Meh!

i find that the album's dated badly, especially tracks like 'seventeen', 'liar' and 'no feelings'. pretty standard rock workouts which are fortunately rescued by rotten's 'singing'.



Nonsense!

As I recall, they used to play gigs with the Cockney Rejects, and Paul DiAnno (original lead singer) had (shock horror) short hair. Yeah, they were slightly punky. That all changed, of course, once the evil influence of Bruce Dickinson had been fully exerted. They then became the most horrid band of all time (apart from Yes, obviously).

Im sorry for being a not reading the thread knobhead but it has to be Holidays in the Sun....always been a sucker for a good intro. This album has immmense sentimental value fore me. For my 30th birthday my brothers band played at a Bradford pub and I got to get up and Sing Anarchy in the Uk to my friends family and bemused work colleagues, I still wemember it fondly.

Ive had a vodka or two, can you tell

Hmmm, maybe it is pub-rock, after all....
