Re: Green River NOT first grunge band?

Ahhh, Overlord! Like me a bit of them! Not quite the proto-grunge pioneers...more like a Seattlite Cheap Trick...!

Said that, I reckon the one in the middle might have influenced King Buzzo...in hair style anyway...!

Re: Songs that ripoff Nirvana.

I love making these kinds of comparisons...Nirvana weren't entirely original themselves -- Spirit really took its opening from the closing chords of Pixies, Debaser... not Godzilla, Louie Louie or More than a Feeling -- Milk It's riffage is owed to the Melvins, It's Shoved -- Very Ape also borrowed ...

Re: Alice Cooper

What an artist...the man with the career in fear! For me he sits with the likes of Motorhead, ACDC, Kiss and Thin Lizzy for teachingme that the 70s were the golden era for music… and that most good music was older than I was. I post because Im addicted to this song, and wanted to share it...I'll Bit...

Re: Best Soundgarden Riff and Guitar Solo

Soundgarden were not really a "solos" band imo, so I am going to skip that -- suppose insanely complex solos just weren't a grunge thing...except for Pearl Jam Well, my favorite song is Drawing Flies and it is so because of the opening riff...so my answer can't be anything other than that -- Slaves ...

Re: Favorite Nirvana song

My favourite is "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle" -- though it was a while after getting into the band before I gave it any consideration

The Clash!

Seems not to be any thread for The Clash here, so here's one where you can come and talk with Joey about the legendary Clash! My obsession with the Pistols gave me a yearning to discover what the other punk bands were up in the 1970s... and The Clash was one of the first bands I came across... and h...

Please do mate. Bootleg shirts are usually a lot better than the official ones.

Re: The Proclaimers

Music from the late 80s I associated with bland electronic dance music,twerps not writing their own material, and the sleaziest...corporatest...sexistest... hair metal bands... of ridicule, so coming across music like what these two lads did, then stuff like REM, B52s, Pixies, Husker as well, which ...
