I repeat, paid for.
Dan "I feel my NYC cynicism setting in" Rigney
- Mine wasn't scented, dammit. If it had been, it would have been one
of the best things about the record, and I say this as a damned big
Damned fan. Give me Machine Gun Etiquette or the Black Album any ol'
I think the album is worth having just for "Ignite". I think one of the big
problems with Strawberries is that it was produced really poorly (by Hugh
Jones, who was producing a ton of stuff at the time) and everything sound
muddy and unexciting.
My favorite Damned albums are 1. Machine Gun Ettiquette, and 2. Damned
Damned Damned. Thirdly, I'd take a mixture of their live albums (Live at
Shepperton, Live at Newcastle, Not The Captain's Bday Party and even their
reunion CD, Final Damnation). The Damned were my favorite band for a very
long time, but it was more because of their live shows than their albums
(though MGE is one of the best records of all time.) I'm still sad, though,
that the last time I saw them they sucked.
Speaking of seventies British punk, I see that the Buzzcocks are
opening for Pearl Jam on their tour of the various concrete lean-to's
with seats, uh I mean tin sheds in treeless fields, uh I mean glorious
amphitheaters this summer. Yeah, I'll be there.
The one problem with that is if I went to the show I must run the risk of
actually hearing Pearl Jam again (like, when I'm sprinting out to the
parking lot.) I'm sorry, but I just can't take that risk. I'll have to pass
on this tour.
