Hmmm... Gary Marx. That anthemic guitar-playing style of his could've landed him a gig or two with Big Country, me thinks.

Hmmm... Poison Door. The song is about heroin, is it not?

Since we are discussing the Damned and Patricia, I have an interesting little anecdote from my London days - 1989-91. I was living in Tottenham and had an offer to become a flatmate with some friends who were living in the suburb (forgot its name) down the hill from Alexandra Palace, or 'Ally Pally'...

??? Oh right. I meant Andrew; there's the whole thing of Vision Thing starting with a sniff... In one of the very excellent Floodland-era interviews, I believe, Von runs through various drugs and mentions he does not like what coke does for him, or to him. He's also not a 'dope' smoker, and I doubt...

I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine!

Anyone fond of the ageing classic, One Night in Bangkok, performed by Murray Head? The song is actually about a chess tournament and if my music knowledge is correct, was written by Abba (ie, Benny Anderson and Bjorn Ulvaeus - aren't those guys commonly known as Abba?) for a Tim Rice musical. If you...

I distinctly recall Andy walking out centre-stage, eyes forward, and then bowing. It was obvious to me that he was exercising his legendary will and not letting his nerves get the better of him. Remember, they say people fear public speaking more than they fear death, or so the theory goes. (Even An...

I've got to tell you Mr/Mrs/Ms/Miss X, "Smash It Up" is one of my favourite songs. I had forgotten all about it until I heard it in a goth club a few weeks ago. Its video clip was fun, too. A late-night music program (a mainstream one, I might add) in my neck of the woods used to play the Smash It U...

Uh, who was on it? Dunno anything about these guys' drug-taking habits. Okay, Andy liked speed, but I also seem to recall that he was always saying he had kicked such stuff by the time he began gigging the Floodland/Vision Thing material.

I have a theory that his alleged megalomania is actually over-compensation for extreme shyness and low self-esteem. If that's the case, Andy seems to deal with it pretty well. I saw both Sisters concerts at Wembley in 1990, with Tony James on bass. At the beginning of each performance, Von confiden...

Most Sisters stuff perplexes me in one way or another, and the Gift album is no exception. I don't really know whether the fact it was recorded quickly should add anything to its credibility. I like the fact that nothing has sounded like it before or since - AFAIK. I remember a non-Sisters-fan frien...

There is a guy in Britain called David Icke. He was, at one time, the goalkeeper for Coventry, but I don't know much about British football. Icke (pronounced 'Ike') is a supporter of the "reptilian outer space mother race seeded us" theory. His spin on the spacemen is that they form a secret global ...

I found London to be a woefully impersonal place. The cost of living was awful, the food was crap, the class structure was pronounced, there was too much complacency, and the musicians were more interested in "making it" than in making music... :!:

Unfortunately (or otherwise), no, they don't sell it anywhere else. Visitors to the Philippines are advised to leave Red Horse to the locals, anyway. It's widely available there, but nowhere else, for some reason. Red Horse is brewed by San Miguel, which is known simply as "San Mig" in the islands. ...

If the post is too long, just read some of the reviews of Red Horse from the Rate Beer website and you'll get the idea: "I have done some frightening stuff while drinking this beer...." "Pity it tastes and smells lousy. Good for massive hangovers. Pass the lipovitan." "This is a disgrace to beers" "...

There is a lager in the Philippines called Red Horse Beer. Allegedly it is so potent it "makes you not give a f-ck about anything!" It really is shocking. It tastes foul and even has an appalling aroma. It has nothing to do with 'beer satisfaction' and all that crap. It is only for getting blitzed q...

I always thought the March Violets' sound was comparable with the Sisters. Perhaps better! What happened to this band?
