    This song/album changed my life in 2017. I am now fully capable of programming a DX7 thanks to Green Gartside's slick vibes.

    Wow, I'd forgotten what a wasteland the '80s were. :p

    I was in my 20s then; don't know why hardly any of this stuff meant anything to me...what the heck was I listening to back then? :confused:

    Liked the Wipers and XTC, though!

    Thanks for that. I was just thinking the other day that we don't see enough Squeeze on this site. Glen is a great guitarist and this band was sooooooo tight when Jools was on keyboards.

    Trying to not use the usual candidates from these performers.
    Listened to this album a lot in college (I worked nights).

    Yeah, it wasn't quite the country that he's known for.

    HArd rockers who got lumped in with the hair guys.

    And a Grammy winner...

    I was gonna post this - if you listen to those lyrics, and think about the band, and don't have the hairs on your neck stand up; then you'd better put a mirror in front of your mouth and make sure you're still alive.

    When the Clash got through being ''the only band that mattered'', the 'Mats made the music that should have earned them the title. They just didn't give enough f#@&s to play the game.

    The '80s had a lot more going on than what was on MTV. Here are some of my favorites...

    The backstory on the previously posted Replacements 1986 SNL appearance is hilarious. Short version is it got them banned from TV for a long while.

    Here's a sample (so glad this was preserved) of their early work. 14 year old bass player and all...
