'YEH That's cool! Aerosmith Rule!'
I thought this was good at the time. what the fuck.
i bought 'joy' too. i think i was fooled by their logo. which was also crap.
joy was clearly shit, even then. everyone had a big realisation they were truly awful as soon as it got played, and then when we heard 'to earth' afterwards, realised that that had been shit too, and we'd all been sharing some odd mass delusion.
had a drug induced dream at ATP one year, and stayed in bed all day because he thought Mansun were curating and Gay Dad were headlining.
Pretty funny really.
bunch of cynics!
How good would that be?!
the best thing that had ever happened, including when SFA brought that tank to Glastonbury.
I actually quite liked them. Even brought the second album...
And I've seen them twice...
and got home to find no CD

Because of the fact that Cliff Jones spouted crap in interviews ("Gay Dad are an avatar to aheadness" being one classic), a couple of things have probably been forgotten...
1) The album actually got great reviews at the time, and not just from the NME contigent
2) ...and that was because it was really good.
Separate the man and the hype from the music and there's nowt wrong with "Leisure Noise"...
Nothing special but fun.
And it doens't age as it was already dated...
i quite liked the first song on that album.
