New one for me, Mr. B. This rocked. I wish I was exposed to better stuff like this during my mid 90s years. Instead I surrounded myself in a cocoon of classic rock of the 60s and 70s. There could be worse things I guess. But I clearly missed out on some excellent stuff. Well jammed.
@kfarrnd Cheers Kev. It's a cracker, isn't it? It was released in '95, to pretty much zero interest. One year later, after a couple of better received releases, they lashed it back out again and got some chart success. I've loved it from minute one. Oh and I for one, celebrate your cocoonship sir...it's the reason your Jams are always so bloody good!! :-D
Love Longpigs sir, this has an Oasis ring to it somewhere......top jam.
I reckon there was a lot of good stuff in the 90's (evidenced here), but it took me a few years to admit and embrace it...
...and some marvellous geetar work from the great Richard Hawley too! Not heard this in ages - Great Jam
@DavidAnderson Cheers Dave. If there is indeed a smidge of Oasis in there, it's just another great reason to lurve them Longpigs... ;-D
@ErnieBilko Thanks Bilks. I reckon you're spot on. I've not thought much about that decade for my Jams...I'm thinking again... :-D
"Bank managers on acid" HaHaHa!! ( I'm laughing , even though that image will probably conjure nightmares for me! :-) ...How come so many of your stories ( ..as entertaining as they ARE..) ..involve trying to desperately impress young ladies? :-D ...finally, during the 80s, I thought I was all washed up & had no further interest in music.....but then the 90s came along & they were brilliant!!
@debutch Actually DC, Bank Managers on Acid could be a useful band name. As for the burdz, I was crucially aware that my allure (such as it was...note, past tense) would leave me in my dotage, so I was on a strategic mission (as we sex pests call it). Yep 90s...I might bide here a wee while... ;-D
HaWHaWHaW!.....oh dear!......as for band names, a few days ago , I wrote a jam story ( who, me?) about what Keith Richards gets up to in the toilets and @ philipnareike said they could be called "The cubicles of iniquity" ...and I thought , "What a FANTASTIC name for a band!!.... =D
@debutch Only you could write on such a subject! Indeedy, another useful (defo prog) band name. At least some of us will know the source of name... ;-D
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
That entire album was a cracker. Absolute scorcher.
@BertrandRustles Ithangu, Christoph! Yep, totally agree, great album from a fine wee (if short lived) band...
@Cranky Cheers Cranksta'!
Cracker mate! Never heard them before, so thanks for the intro, :)
@Phyl Cheers my old china! Always great to catch a 'not heard before' toon. A fine wee fleeting band, indeed... :-D
As a 'share the love' gesture, here's a thing you may like https://youtu.be/lcunlTkGst4 To me it's like doin 'cid without the chems. :)
@Phyl Haha. I see where you're comin' from there, fella! Many thanks for that. Y'know, Yes were seldom on my prog horizon and I've always thought that strange. I've listened to them a lot more in my quasi-dotage and enjoyed. This Jon recording, reminds me of everything I find amazing about prog. Complex, challenging and ultimately amazingly satisfying. A fine call sir and an equally welcome share...of the lurve, baby... :-D
@cosmicdon Cheers GMan...
Great jam and great story, you have missed your way my friend.
@brianberrington Haha. Cheers Brian. I should have observed much more carefully, at orienteering classes... ;-D
You and your stories... always a pleasure to read them! :-D Thanks for share, Mr B xx
Why thank you Ms Florencia of Fragrancia. I try to entertain in my own small way (though rumours of my size, are grossly misrepresented...) ;-D
The state of Scottish banking they had to be on acid ;) Nice tune!
@cbinseoul Haha. The bastards can certainly afford a higher class of drug, these days, Craigy... :-D
