Note To The Young Ones

There is always something of a generation gap over music, old farts like myself not getting whatever cacophony it is that you like to Bebo to and you, quite rightly, assuming that the bad backs, rheumatic knees and dwindling synapses of your forefathers must have been caused by whatever it was that we assaulted our eardrums with and the associated vertical expression of a horizontal desire*.

Well, when the first two of those complaints weren't caused by our generating you, the third having quite a lot to do with the existence of younger siblings.

But can we all agree? This is good music?

* This joke is a great deal older than I am. It means "dancing".

Oh, the memories. The alcohol. The amphetamines. The charisma of Lee Brilleaux and the sheer genius of the lunatic Wilko Johnson. Canvey Island; the very antithesis of glamour and therefore f*****g cool.

And with all that above, is it any wonder my 48 year old body is knackered. Wrappings's not too bad though.......

Oh god, the memories. Liverpool Stadium, 1976. Sheer brilliance. The album's good, but they were awesome live (the live album Stupidity gives a better idea, and I think sounds better).

Christ, I feel old now.

We can indeed agree. Especially that Stupidity is the one to have.

What! They have made it a Stereo Record - the original (a copy of which I have to hand, is proudly and pointedly mono in reaction to the concept artist LPs that were then sprouting up all over.
