"Dam Hamburg is awesome, go to Schanzenviertal, there's 2 punk music stores at least there, a store that sells punk tshirts and a bunch of places selling other cool crap. There's an R&B, soul, hip hop store there. I can't remember…"
The Queers, The Addicts and Bonsai Kitten are the most relavent bands to this site. But Bad Brains, Black Flag along with some seriousely good ska punk and oi bands make this one good!"
"Also maybe not punk rock as such, but a protest song nonetheless and one that came out of the Tory government that set Britain back about a decade in terms of tolerance.
My favourite haha!
And there's an Exploited song giving one of…"
"I was going to mention the Magnet cover. Although the steel guitar is really good on the original. But I heard the Magnet cover first and find the Dylan version doesn't really fit to the lyrics because of that. After hearing the cover it just…"
"Four Lions flips from the silly stuff you see in the trailer to the downright fucked up side of terrorists in the UK.
Trainspotting has loads of dark humour but the dead baby on the ceiling scene is the creepiest.
Go super mainstream and it's…"
"I think in Europe the Swastika has a different meaning to how Brits and Americans interpret it. Don't forget that in a lot of countries wearing it is illegal and therefore only Nazis wear it. So many Germans get insulted when Brits make Hitler…"
"I think it's solid. Yeah it doesn't go back far. I mean it's mostly garage punk revival since the 2000s. But then again does anyone seriously think that something on an MTV channel is going to provide much more than stuff that is…"
"What happens when a label like Lookout goes bust? I mean with most independents that are successful they get bought out and then the majors sit on the back catalogue until some kind of cult revival makes it worth re-releasing some album.
"I was never sure whether or not to write the Towers of London off. I liked their songs and when I saw them with that documentary on TV it didn't make me like them much more or dislike them. But after the singer's stint on Celebrity Big…"
"Comedy and culture is very much a matter of taste, I mean I can't stand Family Guy but watch a lot of other American stuff. But either way in America they have massive teams to write the jokes which makes them much more sellable. It's just…"
"If anything I'd guess that they were more junk back then. I mean look at the production values. Hannah Montanna is made to be sold, so has the investment thus.
You could better compare it with comedy. British comedy is normally a labour of love…"
"I don't see why a song shouldn't go in an ad.
But I would add with selling out that quite often it happens to bands who have lost their creative flair anyway. I mean when a guy's in his teens and 20s he's generally got a lot of…"
"I'm also setting up the bathroom to look like a bloody mess. So I have one of those shower gel blood packs but that won't be enough. If you use ketchup you can pour it in the bath to mix with water to get the right effect, I have a plastic…"
"I love Bubblegum! People talk about the music of the late 60s-70s like it was all Janis Joplin or Jimi Hendrix, but Bubblegum is what actually got played on the radio (AM, at least). It was one of the only styles that kept to three…"
"I looked for 20+ years for The Prisoners "Thee Last Fourfathers" and "A Taste Of Pink" LPs before finding them for...not TOO much $ on the ebays. Now I'm just waiting for that copy of "Stormy Weather" by The…"
