Careful with the social(ist) commentary, Jim, somebody will accuse you of bringing this thread into disrepute. Didn't you know politics ans music DO NOT mix. Oh wait!!!! Do you actually mean politics, love, life, music, films, plays, novels, food, adverts, furnitutre,pet food are all interconnected???Jim-W said:What the world needs now is not love, sweet love but a John Cooper-Clarke for today to rage, scabrously, about this current sickness:
John Cooper Clake-Snap, Crackle And Bop
Oh and a hard-hitting ad angry band like The Jam:
The Jam-Setting Sons.
And a puppet show that hammers 'em like Spitting Image.
The Smiths-Louder Than bombs.
My Bloody Valentine-Loveless.
I'm playing it now. Not sure about the Duran Duran comparison (though it does sound very 80s) and I'm not sure I'm enjoying it that much, though 'Love My Way' is a great tune.Charlie Jefferson said:I eventually tracked down and cleaned Forever Now by The Psychedelic Furs. I've just played side 1, and it's great. Better than I'd half-remembered it. Both of it's time but also very prescient in sound and sentiment. Like a cooler take on Duran Duran. The guys voice is a thing of affected wonder.
I like it.
I imagine that's quite good? Raja Ram innit?floyd droid said:One from my ' When I snuff it dont let the Floydette flog it on fleabay as a BIN for a tenner ' collection.

For me this is their best album by miles and miles. Noisy, lovely dirginess. Indiaaaaahhhh!!!!!Charlie Jefferson said:I remember the sleeve, though I don't own a copy.BIGBERNARDBRESSLAW said:Couldn't take anymore of Forever Now.....
Forever Now sounds pretty good after all these years. Did they just fade away after another LP or two? Members died/sued each other/became music therapists/90s onwards reunions???
The two albums that followed Forever Now were their most commercially successful, the second one of the two, Midnight To Midnight was utterly awful. Two more albums followed, which were moderately successful, and a lot better than MTM.Charlie Jefferson said:Did they just fade away after another LP or two?

Sort of. They split in 1991, and reformed in 2001.Charlie Jefferson said:90s onwards reunions???
