  1. Obvious innit, bands that consider themselves coming from some sort of a punk sensibility often take a dim view to the likes of Guns n Roses and like to ridicule them a bit and it works in the other direction too, I remember Eddie Van Halen say once when talking about the highly politicized Clash 'what bands like The Clash don't understand and what a lot of these bands don't understand is that you can't take life so damn seriously honey!'. Its just a bit of light ribbing, not a lot more. Guns n Roses occupy the strange position of being sort of passe right from their inception, something to do with the juxtaposition of the safe mainstream and the cutting edge underground, they were never and have never really been the 'cool' band to be into. But thats OK, you can wear that right if you know how and Guns often did...and just as often did not. They were so of that passe ilk that even big mainstream bands of the time took the piss out of them a bit. Its nothing to be taken ever so seriously, what matters end of the day is the work.
  2. For the sake of argument here, not necessarily saying this is my way of thinking, wasn't doctor traditionally a bloke? Wasn't the counterpoint to doctor nurse? Its only later right that birds have become doctors? And director, hmmm...directress? I'm fuckin' offended by Peppa Pig because every fuckin' kid in my fuckin' family plays that fuckin' shit on their little fuckin' ipad things until I wanna smash em against the fuckin' wall. The ipad I mean, not the kids. Well, maybe that little goofy lookin' kid of one of my cousins.
  3. The Boxing Thread

    This is how a real street G handles business, makes threats without really making threats and basically boys someone off. Okolie is fuckin' shitting it there, he's having visions of shower-room rape

  5. Its worse than a myth, its often wilfull ignorance. And its almost always framed with the 'y'know what, you're better off than the women of Saudi Arabia so get some perspective', oh, well, thats great then, lets never point out any injustice ever because hey, it could be worse, we could be in fuckin' Treblinka being led to the showers.
  6. Will there ever be another all-time great rock album?

    I like Nirvana, I think they were brilliant...but were they doing anything that hadn't been done by, shit, even The Stooges? Simple cyclical riffs, powerhouse drumming...and quite frankly I'd put them a peg or two beneath The Stooges. And The Stooges started in 1969.
  7. The inordinate amount of focus on said caricatures is intriguing to me. I'm not speaking about you, I mean in our culture generally. It seems like every video on youtube is like TRIGGER FEMINIST etc etc. One might think that there a concerted effort going on, whether concious or otherwise, to take the legs out of the issue by framing them as a bunch of cartoon nutcases shouting to themselves about nothing in particular. It extends even to like, television shows and such, they always to bring on guests doing some kind of weird work to be patronised by Piers Morgan on national television to paint this picture of feminists as nutcases. And oh yeah, align them with the extreme left, once you've done that job you've effectively alienated them from a huge chunk of the population.

  10. Will there ever be another all-time great rock album?

    Exactly, it will (and has been) something else. But that pure rock n roll, Raw Power is as far as you can take that, I’m not saying pure as some kind of compliment necessarily, I’m simply talking about the basic elements that made it.

  12. Will there ever be another all-time great rock album?

    The truth is rock n roll, pure rock n roll, was over the day The Stooges dropped Raw Power, there was nothing else you could do with it. A few people took it places by melding other things to it, like The Mondays and Black Grape did it with dance, people could expand on it...but the core thing, the meat and potatoes of it, you can’t take it no further than Raw Power...The Pistols matched it just about with Nevermind the Bollocks...but nothing can surpass Raw Power...nothing even had the nerve to try, quite frankly it blows everything else out of the water.

    I'm gonna make a video of me holding caption cards (cuz I can't speak cuz the bullying over my lisp has shattered me) telling my story and stick it out there right before my suicide, the shit'll go viral and you, Soulie and Dazey are gonna be on the front cover of The Daily Mirror under the caption 'VILE SCUM' We'll see whoose laughing then...though now I think about it the dead are not known to laugh ever so much. Still, I'll win from beyond the grave Tommy Robinson will come out with a video a day or so later about how I was a drunk driver, pisshead and dabblers in the ol' persian rugs but all that will be swept away in the tide of sympathy as you three are denigrated and vilified.
  20. The Boxing Thread

    Yeah I know them two, 80s fighters, Marlon Starling was a good fighter, world champion, he beat Lloyd Honeyghan back in the day if I recall correctly, the man who famously upset Donald Curry. He lost to Donald Curry too, Marlon I mean. I think more than once.
