their entire sound and most of their image is directly stolen from his meek-era stuff. init.
yeah- and their cover of Crawdaddy Simone was fucking shit.
Sutches Meek era singles are vastly underrated. My faves are 'she's fallen in love with the monster man' and 'train kept a rollin'...the latter has the most furious fuzz guitar/saxophone duelling. So great. In fact I'm gonna put it on right this minute
on mixtapes. think i'm gonna track down a 7" next time there's a record fair down here.
might be difficult to find at a record fayre...I was looking for Sutchy singles for ages 'til I discovered ebay. There is a copy on there at the moment, buy it now for fifty quid...think you can get it cheaper than that though
there's a guy with a whole box of meek, every single i think.
If that is true, I'll eat a plate of fresh dog shit ;)
Seriously...its not true
but LOADs. loads and loads.
next time if you go, find out if it really IS every one, and if so, we can do him over in the car park afterwards and split the proceeds ;0
seriously tho if there's anything you're having trouble finding i could always have a look for you. pm me if you like.
Meek related- off the top of my head- the second two Syndicats singles (howlin for my baby and on the horizon') The Buzz- you're holding me down, Gunilla Thorne- merry go round, Glenda Collins- I lost my heart at the fairground, Sharades- dumbhead...trouble is, if he has them, he'll know that those six 45s are gonna set me back about a grand and a half...
Infuriatingly- with most of those- notably the Syndicats, its not so much that they are 'rare', but more that they are highly sought after. on the horizon/crawdaddy made the lower reaches fo the charts, but it doesn't stop some bozos paying eight hundred quid for it!
true he's also got just about every motown, beatles and stones single too, and they're priced quite high, so bargains are a bit hard to find. i'll keep an eye out for any of those ones cheap though!
If he prices Beatles/Stones records high maybe he's got record pricing back to front, and thinks the ones you've never heard of aren't worth anything. I like those kinda guys ;)
and this copy starting at £4.99
a seven inch of this single is a truly wonderful thing...just roars off the record
(and I have no strong opinions either way) they have at least acknowledged the debt/ripoff by covering "Jack the Ripper", rather than going down the Editors route of pretending you don't listen to much Joy Division.
but its soooooooooo blatant that even doing the cover doesnt take away from the fact that their schtick is so 1955
but the teenagers at their shows weren't around in 1955. Nor was I. Nor was my dad, for the first four months of it, and even then he was none years old.
I don't even know what point I'm making, if any. Just playing devil's avocado.
picture, i can tell you're a thief with a big penis! FUCKING POLITICAL CORRECT TWAT
and to the original point, I don't think they're trying to be too original.
They seem like intelligent boys.
In fact that's ridiculous, of course they aren't trying to be original. What a ludicrous idea.
