Rock and Roll Tribe

A Global Army of Veteran Rockers

There is a group of bands that I should just out and out love, but for whatever reason, they have never risen to the lofty heights.  Not that their stuff ain’t all that, because many time it is  It is not that I don’t like them, but they remain “just friends.”  
This is not an example of what I am talking about, but is pretty damn funny nonetheless. Apologies to insulting any Joyce fans on the Trib,

I exist to boggle your mind, Harry.

Connecting two threads from this discussion-if I were to choose my Top 10 fave punk songs, The Sex Pistols and The Clash might not be represented, but The Replacements might be represented twice...pretty good since they are not considered a punk band.

Im not trying to be smart Thomas but I always thought they were and must confess even though I still havnt added them to my collection I have always meant to since most of the songs Ive heard of theirs have been great. They sure looked mighty punky on the front cover of "let it be'. So what are your top ten punk songs so I can you tube them? Maybe i will find I did like some of the original purveyors of punk.

The Replacements started as a punk band but after awhile they evolved to indie rock and then they got a bit conservative as they got older.  Shermo I think I'll take you up on making a list...one caveat, I'm no punk expert and my tastes lean towards catchy tunes.

While making a list of my fave punk songs, I came up with one for this discussion-Bad Brains. I just can't buy into HR's vocals.

This is an easy one for me. Jellyfish.

I have tried. I have seen them in concert. I have owned their albums (even the discs from the box set.) There is a perfection to their music that rubs me the wrong way.

Another one that shocks most people is Big Star. With The Posies as one of my top bands of all time, I keep trying, I really do. I don't have a solid explanation and I'm kind of glad I don't. Music either touches me or it doesn't and Big Star just doesn't get to me for some reason.

"The pickin's for Mr. Trower's live "unauthorized" recordings has increased lately.  I have picked up several fine recordings from the 70's when he still featured the great James Dewar. "
