Oh fuck off Christopher Biggins 😀

We are different ages mate

In all seriousness I get your point of view. But for someone brought up through the northern soul/punk/ska/Motörhead era SAW killed music and the charts

Dunne died in 2012, three months of his 93rd birthday

John Laurie (Frazer) died at 83

William Ridley (Godfrey) died at 88

James Beck (Walker) died at 44

Arthur Lowe (Mainwaring) died at 66

John le Mesurier (Wilson) died at 71

Frank Williams (Vicar) still going at 90

Ian Lavender (Pike) still going at 74

Bill Pertwee (ARP Warden) died age 86

Eddie Sinclair (Verger) died age 63

I get that Beck and  Sinclair and Lowe weren’t old by today’s standards but I’m seeing no curse.

 

 

 

William Ridley (Godfrey) what a man he was in real life. Check out his war record.

Really isn't, anyway discussing the value of music on this forum is like trying to balance water.

Totally pointless, as was saying the 90s killed pop TV...

Threads would be very short if you aimed that line of thinking at the posts on here.


And I don't think anyone said the 90s killed pop TV 🤔

I'm not saying the 90s was a write off. Some very good stuff came out of it. But for me it was the start of a slow decline of the charts.

 

 

If anything was in the charts late 80s/early 90s I didn't want to know. Absolute pish in the main.

You see no curse, really? From the moment they signed up for the show they were all doomed.

Quite partial to a bit of Pearl Jam too. 

Mate of mine saw them at madison square garden, he said they were on for nearly 4 hours. Only gig he’s seen with an interval

Any year when Pearl Jam release an album is a good year.

That 1991 list is a constant drip feed of brilliance.

Orbital, 808, PJ, Nirvana, REM, KLF.

Fuck me. That happened nowadays and Twitter would implode.

PJ Harvey is a genius. I don't think she's ever released a bad album.

In this instance PJ stood for Pearl Jam

It did

But Crawley is correct, she’s quality and also very bummable

I have a huge PJ Harvey crush. Her pink catsuit performance at Glastonbury in 95 was a highlight.

Let England Shake is one of my favourite albums of all time. Never tire of it.

Oh, then in which case....erm a couple of ok albums.

I do need to spend more time on her stuff, like Black Snake Moan and This Mess We're In 

You probably know this, but Nick Cave wrote Into My Arms for 

She dumped him over the phone whilst he was in the middle of shooting up 

Seen Pixies a couple of times, they go at 45 songs an hour, very good

1991 was my first Monsters of Rock (Download these days)

AC/DC, Metallica, Queensryche on the Bill. Was fucking ace.

Only went for Tallica and queensryche and they were both ace. Never been much of an AC/DC fan.

what a day though

https://youtu.be/LB4yzl2-fbY

'94 was my first MOR. Never went to earlier ones because it clashed with the football season.

 

I once chose to not go to a Metallica concert because it clashed with a rearranged match we had against Tranmere.
