No it’s mainly you whose the musical snob on this thread - with one or two others - and then also a few of pretentious pseudes as well.

Everyone else is OK and seems to recognise you can have different musical tastes without your own taste being objectively inferior to that of the musical snob.

There’s subjectivity and personal preference involved. Even Rhys has no shame admitting he’s a big Phil Collins fan.

It’s something to do with hearing their songs, not liking them and being content never to hear them again.

Happy to help :thumbl:

I'm guessing not many here into Napalm Death or Black Metal then?

I unintentionally saw Napalm Death in mid 80s. It was a great night.

Saw them a few times in late 80s mostly north London pubs, George Robey, Boston Arms etc, thought they lost their way when songs regularly crept over the three minute mark. 28 track album Scum with total running time of about 34 minutes was more effective.
Gigs were like nothing I'd seen before or since, complete physical and audio assault. Can't say I'd have bought any of their music as it just didn't seem right listening to it at home. Saw a few of the grind core bands like Extreme Noise Terror, Bolt Thrower, Sore Throat, made a change from listening to jangly guitar music which got played a lot where I worked

When that shit took hold there was a gig at ULU with Napalm Death, Extreme Noise Terror, Bolt Thrower and a couple of others at ULU. The Beeb were there filming it. I remember I had a suede jacket from Camden Market (as you did, then) which was just leather by the end of the evening. One of the daftest, most lunatic events I’ve ever experienced. There were times when you couldn’t see the band or PA at all because of the plague of people stage diving.

Definitely to be seen live. Total sensual assault, saw em twice can't say I loved it, but a hell of an experience. Twice was enough.
Doesn't work on record.

Not that I recall, but the late 80's are a little, um, hazy... Went to quite a few late night raves, club nights that sort of thing. Was working for Rough Trade in those days so never short of an invite to something somewhere

Club Dog was a weird late 80s (IIRC) new psychedelic thing. It was where Ozric Tentacles got their start I think. They did all that projector and oil wheels thing that Hawkwind had.

Was saying to my mate how, from a contemporary perspective, it was just astonishing that a place as squalid as the Robey could ever stay in business. It was the sort of pub where you’d have a few pints then decide to have a piss in the street on the way home rather than go in the bogs in there, because it was less of a risk to your health and well-being.

I'm sure I must have been there Eric. There were quite a few at RT who were into bands like Ozric. Thing is with the mix of mdma and acid in what passed for my blood stream in those days I've got no idea at all.

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Sounds similar to my first experience of seeing them. Minus the suede jacket.

They're a bit fatter, hairier and slower (aren't we all) but still cause a similar reaction now. I can't keep up anymore.

Highly recommended, if you missed it catch it on iPlayer if it’s there.
