Bud the Baker

I'm Listening To....

Recommended Posts

I like the version on the 3rd live double album best, though the sentiment of the second live double album version can edge your feelings and the the two versions on the forth live album are okay but the version on the fifth live album is spoiled by the mix of the crowd being too high.............

Sweden's finest collaborating with Steve Wilson. A great CD. Join 70's fetishist Bongo for an evening of recidivism or face the New Millenium with wax free ears!

Neil Young-Harvest, brilliant

197787[/snapback]

Strange album- Harvest itself is fine- the sparse but effective needle and the damage done is first class but the Over orchestral "A man needs a maid" :ph34r:

Listening to Jacques Loussier jist now- suitable for a friday- the weans are away home and it's time to get the lab in order- a Wee bit o' Jacques helps.

The wildest night at the Apollo for me was the Stranglers , now that was rock'roll. The Stranglers that night told the audience to kick f**k out of the bouncers.

I worked beside a guy some time ago and he was at a Stranglers gig at the Apollo which he said was utterly mental. When they played Nice & Sleazy the scantily clad female dancers appeared on stage, the place went nucking futs and folk were shagging in the aisles. be this the same gig, perchance?

Oh aye, and listening to It's No Good by Depeche Mode.

I'd heard about this legendary gig, too. Certainly about the strippers the Stranglers used to have, although not about the shagging in the aisles. Bearing in mind how manky the Apollo was, it sounds a tadge unhygienic to me ..... :huh:

The Apollo...............mixed memories.

Always thought the stage was a bit high and too many bouncers. If you stormed the front like I remember doing at some gigs - Stranglers, Motorhead etc you could hardly see the band but when the crowd was up for it, they were Crazy, Crazy, Crazy Nights!
