Back to a time when life was innocent. I never watched the news as a youngster. I had never heard of Muslims or multiculturalism, we dressed like Mods and knew nothing of drugs. I'm not saying it wasn't there it just wasn't a thing.

a lyrical genius

Author justmadeit2 ( ago)
There was me, age 13 and a half, i fancied this girl in my class called Jo, she always seemed cool and grown up, anyway, we were friends and she did me a compliation tape, this was 1988 an this song was on it, along with the smiths bigmouth strikes again, teh sex pistols, the clash and other stuff. The tape was left in my brothers car which got broke in to and somebody stole the tape. Anyway, id never heard any of this type of music till then and it was exciting, as music was at that age, i was obsessed with music, it was a very intense experience. Although now at age 42 i still like music, i rarely get that euphoric rush that i did as a teenager, sadly, Maybe ive just heard too much of it, and too many classic bands and have become jaded ? Although i listen to it often, as the one thousand song play list on my chnl will attest to. But its not quite as good as it was ! Maybe i am trying to recreate a feeling ? Damn

Is that an Ovation guitar?

Author MrChannel2013 ( ago)
The Mod Revival. A few brief months - year. Great while it lasted. I think it got swallowed by ska.

Author Forever Stoke ( ago)
A police car and a screamin' siren
Pneumatic drill and ripped-up concrete
A baby wailing, a stray dog howling
The screech of brakes and lamplight blinking

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

A smash of glass and the rumble of boots
An electric train and a ripped-up phone booth
Paint-splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls

I say that's entertainment
That's entertainment
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah

Days of speed and slow-time Mondays
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat with damp on the walls

I say that's entertainment
That's entertainment
La la la la la
La la la la la

Waking up at 6 A.M. on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the telly and thinking 'bout your holidays

That's entertainment
That's entertainment
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la

Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

Two lovers kissing masks a scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
Reading the grafitti about slashed-seat affairs

I say that's entertainment
That's entertainment
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah

Was Weller pro-Brexit?....Morrissey was honest at least

Author Agnes Philomena ( ago)
WXRT in Chicago used to play this a lot in the 1980s.

Outside of small, alternative college or underground radio, NO big rock stations played this great song.

Why did Weller split these guys up ?? What a band they were !

Author ram rod ( ago)
the jam didn't get much playing time on the air over here in the states. i heard bits from them every now and then and really liked them. lately, i've been binging on them. these guys are fantastic. someone asked me what's so good about them? i said if you gotta ask, then you don't get it. the music is awesome and the lyrics are second to none. i hate that i wasn't part of the crowd way back when they were together. but, i'm catching up now. they don't disappoint.
