Songs that reminds you of other songs.

In 1980 the late swedish artist Eddie Meduza (who mainly wrote about tits, booze and f**king) released "Reaktorn läck i Barsebäck"... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4hKS11fZIY That guitar lick at 0:27 really made me think about No Time To Cry. It was also partly covered by Europe as "Boyazont" o...

The picture quality on most stuff on my tape are quite appalling. Is the same true for your copy? I've not watched it for over a decade as it's all on YouTube now but the Glasgow '83 and York '84 footage was pretty s**t as I recall. The rest was ok to good, so maybe mine is a lower generation copy ...

Wake-bootleg that claims "different mix"?

Hi. I've had a rought decade, beeing a single parent and all. But I'm slowly finding my way back to one of my hobbies; transfering vhs to the digital domain. I have earlier, in colaboration with DocSummer, done the best transfers I could of Wake and Shot, but they were captured as DV. I've now upgra...

Great thick IKEA "Ps" wool-rug. Keeps reverberation down in my quite large living room. Looking for another one, there's plenty of unruged floor. That pronounced "Ps" or is the p silent? :D Tss...

I've really started to enjoy YCBTO lately, mostly by reading the lyrics and not listening to the song. It is cynical beyond beleif, "I'd agree to any stupid new-age things just to f**k you". In the past I found the song so horrible I never really reflected on the lyrics. And, yea... I kind of... ide...

There are plenty of songs that would be excellent Sisters covers. Right now I'm thinking about PJ Harvey's "Let England Shake". But there are better suggestions.

This would probably not make a good cover, but it's a fantastic little tune... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEh-r9a9jjM

The best IKEA-name is the shoehorn "Omsorg". As I happen to know that it's beeing used for spanking quite often. 8)

It was ten years ago today I downloaded the entire www.thesistersofmercy.com - and, sure, some things have changed since then. But nothing much.
