  1. Oh, sorry about the confusion.
    It’s almost February, after all…
    The following may be in poor taste, but as I’ve already stepped into a hole, why not make it a little deeper?

  2. Ok, since I’ve done 2 1979s I’m starting from ‘Turning Japanese’ and going down the Youtube Rabbithole from there…. here’s the first song on MTV … ever.

  3. Oh here’s Morrissey, if you ever thought it was bad, listen to this prat and his problems…..

    (full disclosure Smiths have a place in my music rotation – for that very reason)

  4. I saw Pat Benatar as a “rising star” when she was pushing her first LP on tour. A radio station was giving away tickets and when I called in, the person on the phone had no idea who I was talking about. I did get my tickets, eventually, and got to see her in a small venue–along with Paul Kantner from the Jefferson Airplane. We were the oldest people in the room.

  5. I may not be able to play that one, Gummitch –

    “Dont’ touch me there…. that’s my no-no square” – Sammy the Turtle (aged 11 1/2)

  6. This Youtube rabbithole is working out well…. SammytheTurtle says that all Youtube trails end at the video of the dude riding his bike off a ramp and crashing into a house….

    Vapors
    Buggles (Vapors again)
    Martha and the Muffins
    Skids and Into the Valley!!!!

  7. I liked the Buzzcocks…..

    Ok, I’m in the motherlode 2ebb, from Skids I can go PIL, Tourists, more Skids, Sham69, Squeeze. Trying some of the more obscure routes…. hold on.

  8. You wouldn’t guess it by what I usually play, but I like this group. I found a homemade cassette in a box of stuff my brother was throwing out, and it had several of their songs on it.

  9. OK one for the girls (who are where this evening?)

    Glenn Tilman and Squeeze – great songwriting….

    Vapors
    Buggles (Vapors again)
    Martha and the Muffins
    Skids and Into the Valley!!!!
    Squeeze

  10. OK taking a chance here – Flying Pickets covering Yaz….

    Vapors
    Buggles (Vapors again)
    Martha and the Muffins
    Skids and Into the Valley!!!!
    Squeeze
    Flying Pickets

  11. Going deeper into the late 70s…… a manufactured band doing a lot of covers….. but if you looked liked these pretty boys at school…. you got some.. (I preferred Kevin Bloody Wilson’s ‘wierdling’ of this one)

    Vapors
    Buggles (Vapors again)
    Martha and the Muffins
    Skids and Into the Valley!!!!
    Squeeze
    Flying Pickets
    Smokie

  12. Help I’m stuck in the early 70s …… (its just like the Weeping Angels, Zoo)

    Vapors
    Buggles (Vapors again)
    Martha and the Muffins
    Skids and Into the Valley!!!!
    Squeeze
    Flying Pickets
    Smokie
    Sweet

    And now here’s a bunch of pretty boys….. who probably got some…..

  13. Is anyone else seeing that videos through Vevo are being restricted? I can’t see the blonde Columbian hip-shaker… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  14. TtT, if you are talking about Shakira – just click on ‘watch on YouTube’ and it’ll take you to your nirvana – or whatever…

  15. Oh as I am looking at the Sweet video, I saw one ‘Gary Glitter’. You will know his music but not him. Whenever a sports stadium blares out “Rock and roll…HEY, rock and roll” – you are hearing Gary Glitter and he is pocketing royalties everytime. Here is the song play it if you don’t know what I am talking about:

    *However* next time you hear that song, please write a letter to the stadium owners and tell them that they are playing the music, and funding a convicted child predator…..

    Serious note for music night, thought I’d spread the word.

  16. โ€œAre you men finished touching yourselves?โ€

    Is that a rhetorical question?

    Gary, the technical term is “Plurium Interrogationum ” or ‘loaded question’. Apparently we have already been touching ourselves….

  17. Are you men finished touching yourselves. Ebb, they were so involved they didnโ€™t notice youโ€™d arrived

    Huh?

  18. TtT, you took that out of context.

    Earlier in the thread you wrote

    โ€œOK one for the girls (who are where this evening?โ€

    and I replied.

    [I’m weeping – have my x chromosomes been revoked?]

    Then Shayne wrote: Ebb, they were so involved they didnโ€™t notice youโ€™d arrived.

  19. That’s a handy take on Blister in The Sun….

    OK, I’m really stumped now, I could go Sweet to Abba and then I’m done (not a bad place to end, but you can’t get out).

  20. OK, so from Sweet, and *not* playing Gary Glitter (because he’s a convicted child pervert) – I get this:

    Vapors
    Buggles (Vapors again)
    Martha and the Muffins
    Skids and Into the Valley!!!!
    Squeeze
    Flying Pickets
    Smokie
    Sweet
    Led Zeppelin

  21. Couldn’t make up my mind on PIL – this one’s for Egypt & hoping the guy in charge finds reality, very, very soon…

  22. Bill Maher, “Michelle Bachmann didn’t look directly into the camera which made it harder for the teabaggers to masturbate.” Ick.

  23. 2ebb, you are right…… I made it from The Vapors to Led Zeppelin. I should have stayed punk when I was at the Skids….

    Here’s more Ronnie!!!

  24. 2ebb is putting it out now…… Oils!

    I know these blokes got some….. my sister would’ve she said… if she’d got close enough

  25. Hey 2ebb,

    Didja hear about the new Dead Release?
    Complete Europe 72 tour. Every note.
    I got in on it.
    One of the first 3000
    Personalized box coming my way.

  26. Animal Friends lyrics from Zaboomafoo:

    This animal is a friend of mine
    From the tip of his nose to his funny behind
    All the friends that we met today
    Are special in their own way
    We’ve all got different names
    But we’re really all the same
    Thanks for dropping by
    We’re glad you came
    These animals are friends of mine
    They jump and swim, crawl, fly and climb

    One more thing we have to say,
    Go make an animal friend today! Yeah!
