Hey,

Thanks for the info Maxini, Howard Devotos voice was definitely an acquired taste… [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img] Never heard the stuff after Magazine though.

Salami Guy ATV was Alternative TV, this guy called Mark Perry sang, think the drummer was called laurie driver. They had some pretty cool songs, Action Time & Vision, You Bastard, How Much Longer. Mark Perry put out this cool fanzine called Sniffin Glue with tons of stuff on The Damned, Pistols etc. Recently picked up the whole collection of Sniffin Glue fanzines at Chapters…odd…shipped them out to a pal in Vancouver thou…kinda regret it now.

Adverts, Gaye Advert on Bass, TV Smith vocals etc…Gary Gilmores Eyes…wicked song. Other cool songs, One Chord Wonders, No Time To Be 21. They played a lot with The Damned, cool promo poster said The Adverts can play one chord, The Damned can play three, come see all four played at… [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

The Slits, Ari Up drove me mad after awhile, Palmolive the drummer though she was very cool.

Other cool English Bands

The Lurkers…Shadow, Freakshow etc …fast and fun tunes
The Ruts…West One (Shine On Me), Staring At The Rude Boys and Something That I said…classic
