  1. Just thought of a couple more Lindisfarne The Jesus And Mary Chain
  2. There are probably tribute bands called those now.
  3. Imagine if they ever sponsored a football team!
  4. The Levellers The Waterboys I`m tempted to say The Pogues as well but I`m not as sure about them.
  5. You`re right about Bowie. He was never content to just be one thing and didn`t do things just to be successful/profitable - the Tin Machine era was excruciating and I`m one of his biggest fans (I can only imagine this was intended to be his bleak industrial period a la Kraftwerk) - but he committed fully to whatever he was doing before moving on to something else, often a world away from the last. You only have to look at his acting career too - The Man Who Fell To Earth, Labyrinth, Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, The Hunger and Just A Gigolo is a pretty eclectic mix of styles to say the least! Blondie were unfairly treated by a lot of the media IMO. They were never a `new wave` band just a damn good pop act despite what the music press tried to label them as. It`s a bit like The Buzzcocks or The Undertones being labelled punk bands - they weren`t, they were bloody good pop groups.
  6. Dave Smith - Niclas Eliasson
  7. I doubt it mate - his eyesight`s probably gone as well.
  8. I didn`t. I really rated him - a good player in a poor side. It was mainly his one-on-one record that got him pelters but he was ploughing a lone furrow up front and was the only one likely to score (unless Steven Davies felt like putting in a shift that day). A bit like Brett Pitman, not rated in certain quarters (including the management judging by the way he was treated) but never let us down.
  9. It`s like we`re all just passing time waiting for the axe to fall - just making conversation on watch.
  10. And we got Sam Baldock as part of the deal who didn`t turn out too shabby.
  11. One man`s change of direction is another`s re-inventing yourself. I`m thinking of Blondie from your list above who`s career mirrored the evolution of pop music over the years (they were destroyed by former peers like The Ramones for `selling out` when they released I think, Heart Of Glass) and Debbie Harry goes into great detail about what they were trying to do and how much some of the comments upset her in the excellent Sky Arts documentary on them where she says all they were basically trying to do was to keep up with a fast moving industry. Bowie just couldn`t stand still, he always had to be trying something new - most of it worked, some of it didn`t - but he stayed relevant and interesting. He never intended any of his phases to be long term - Ziggy Stardust for instance was always intended to be a rise, burn brightly and crash story with a finite end. I tend to agree regarding the Bee Gees and Fleetwood Mac though and you can add Genesis (as has been discussed at length in another thread!) to that.
  12. I think we all knew at the time that it would cost us. The reaction from fans when we realised it was serious told you all you need to know - a great night, a fabulous performance and it all ended like that - we knew.
