If you're having trouble tracking down an album, Birdman, I found a forum where every single album has been uploaded individually. I posted the link in the MO chat thread, but give us a shout if you can't find it.

Bit of a life crisis of late. Just haven't been online hardly at all. Should be in the rearview mirror though.

Well I hope you're doing better, man.

I have to go in a fucking chat thread to find out about things like that? C'mon, man!

I think I am, sir. Ready to start listening to new music again.

Have you heard the new Foals album?

Following on from Minutmen, another punk album I probably should have listened to earlier.

Wire - Pink Flag

I guess this is an early post-punk album, but it's still got all the hallmarks of classic British punk. Short, simple songs? Check. Snotty, bratty vocals and lyrics? Check. A proper 'don't give a fuck attitude'? Check. I can see why people liked this and it's definitely more interesting than a lot of the really dull derivative English punk bands popping up around that time, but those bands aren't for me really. I get why punk got so big in England at this time and I'm not denying it's importance as a social and musical revolution. But fuck me, the bands are boring sometimes. The Clash are the huge exception, but apart from them, UK punk at this time was totally not for me.

UK anarcho punk was a bit interesting though, with bands like Crass, Flux of Pink Indians, Conflict and Chumbawamba. I like that, even if it's extraordinarily obnoxious at times ha. That came around a wee bit later though.

Ha, I'll PM you the forum with all the links.

There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just do it; the forum is actually a porn forum. I found it via music downloads and filestube, not through browsing porn though ha. That needs to be emphasised.

The specific thread is all fine, nothing dodgy. Bit awkward though.

Hahahahaha. That's hilarious. What the FUCK is that thread doing on a porn site?

Buddy Holly and The Crickets - The Chirping Crickets

It's pretty cool. I feel the same way about it as I do about a lot of 50s rock n roll. It's fun, it's enjoyable (especially seeing as this album is under half an hour), but it's fairly forgettable once it's done. There's nothing wrong with it at all, but it's very simple, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it stops me really loving it. Definitely well-written pop/rock songs, but I probably won't revisit it for a while.

A very, very big fan. And I think it could be up your alley, too. It has some epic sweep while still being kinda complicated.

And no I haven't. Riyl?

It took me sooooooooooooooooo fucking long to come around on 50's stuff. I dig Elvis, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, Ricky Nelson and Gene Vincent now, though. I should probably check out Jerry Lee Lewis.

Yes, number 443 on the list I'm using. It's changed a bit over the years though, but it was definitely on the original list.

One of my favourite live albums.

Edit: I really like Elvis, and I like Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly well enough. Haven't heard the other 3 you mentioned. That sort of stuff gets a bit repetitive for me to listen to it lots, but I always enjoy it in small doses.

Yeah it's truly perfect. I love the yin-yang if you put it up against Live at the Copa, too. One is sweaty, growling Sam, the other is smooth, charming Sam. And both are awesome.
