    Evil stations are playing " Reaper " w the great solo cut out.
    I was disappointed they didn't have a hit in the double naughts, they had one each in the 70 s, 80s, and 90 s.

    So, many.......

    At the moment my favourites are Sonic Youth, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, My Bloody Valentine and Throbbing Gristle. I tend to like more edgy experimental music.

    Listening to The Velvet Underground and Einsturzende Neubauten at present though.

    the early BOC stuff is worth exploring. they had their own cool: The Red and the Black, OD'd on Life Itself, The Subhuman, Harvester of Eyes, Hot Rails to Hell, Cities on Flame, Astronomy...
    The Agents of Fortune record had some of that classic/inspired right time right brilliance music like Summer of Love, True Confessions and ETI, not to mention the Reaper.
    Even "I Love the Night" and "Golden age of Leather", and...Godzilla, which my band still loves to play for encores at the end of gigs.
    Great stuff!

    This sounds very telecastery to me, but they're probably playing Gretsch guitars for all I know :)

    I love that one song they do at every concert were they all grab a guitar and just jam the roof off.

    I love Burnin for You; that's my favorite of theirs. I saw them around '74; great show.

    I saw BOC live about 1983. I bought a baseball shirt from the merchandising which I had for years, would have been a relatively unusual thing in the U.K. then. As far as I remember the band were okay but I really loved that shirt.

    Lindisfarne. What a great live band they were!. Saw them plenty of times, and they never disappointed. Their Christmas shows were a joy to attend. Pirate hats and singalongs :) One of those 'You -had- to be there' experiences. Happy memories. They seemed to be at every folk festival too, and always went down a storm with every crowd.

    Yes i see them at a folk festival in the 80s so we were right near the front, yes they had great rapport with the crowd as you say you needed to be their for the experience.

    Another band i enjoyed live was the Steve Miller Band, i see them at Kebworth they played a long version of Living in the USA and was really good.

    Me too, even though it was in 1996. They rocked imo. The best of the punk bands for me were The Clash, saw them in 1980 at Hammersmith Palais of all places, and I wasn't the only white man there either.

    Love me some BOC! My favorite album of theirs is Secret Treaties.

    A very under-appreciated band imo.
