    Sami Yaffa 'Satan’s Helpers War Lazer Eyes & The Money Pig Circus' CD PRE-ORDER

    £12.99

    Release Date: 08/03/2024

    In addition to Hanoi Rocks, Finnish rock legend Sami Yaffa, is known from his work with Michael Monroe’s band, Demolition 23, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts and New York Dolls. Sami released his first solo album, The Innermost Journey To Your Outermost Mind, in autumn 2021. Praised by the music press worldwide, the album also won the Emma ( Finland’s version of Grammys) nomination for the rock album of the year. Yaffa's second solo album, the mysteriously named Satan's Helpers War Lazer Eyes and The Money Pig Circus, will be released on Friday, March 8 by Livewire/Cargo.

    "My first solo album, The Innermost Journey To Your Outermost Mind, was so well received that I simply decided to make another one. The recordings have taken a couple of years and took place in Finland, Sweden and Spain. In addition to myself, I have my touring band playing on this one, which includes guitarist Linde Lindström and keyboardist Burton of the band HIM, and my childhood friend, drum and percussion maestro Janne Haavisto, who also played drums on the previous album as well. Those guys became my permanent band, and with this line-up we got down to business. The songs on the album reflect the chaotic world we live in, my own personal strange experiences, and the sordid true stories of the past," says Yaffa.

    The producer of the album is Yaffa himself, together with Erno Laitinen, who was also was the engineer on the debut record. Yaffa also got several familiar guests to join the recordings.

    "I got some of my good old pals with me again, whose musical talents I admire enormously. I got Michael Monroe, Nasty Suicide, Dregen, Steve Conte, and Rich Jones to kick arse on the album. Rich Jones is also responsible for the album's wonderful cover art. Making this album was just as great a joy to make, as the previous one. I hope it will carry on to the listeners as well," Yaffa continues.

    Nubian Rose 'Amen' CD

    £12.99

    NUBIAN ROSE, the Melodic Rock sensation of the early 10’s, is back after a long hiatus. Their new album, AMEN, will be released on the 26th of January 2024.

    On AMEN, Nubian Rose show a more progressive side of the band, but with their trademark foundation of strong melodies, great hooks, big guitars, and the powerful voice of Sofia Lilja. While writing AMEN, Christer and Sofia wanted to challenge themselves to take Nubian Rose to new frontiers.

    “AMEN sounds very different, but hopefully in a good way”, says Sofia. “As people we are constantly growing, so why wouldn’t our music grow? And what would be the point of making another ”Mountain”, or ”Mental Revolution?”
    They wanted to cut all ”obligations” that creators very often feel because of outside expectations. “We wanted to let the music flow through us, not forcing the music out of us”, says Christer. We wanted to make a dynamic album and let all our sources of inspiration have a seat at the table.

    The list of inspiration for AMEN is long and diverse, with everything from Judas Priest, Rainbow and Cheap Trick to David Bowie, John Carpenter, Dalbello, Stevie Nicks, and the amazing album ”The Wanderer”, by Donna Summer.

    AMEN is packed with analogue, vintage, synths. The gain level on the guitars is turned down a bit. Some of the songs don’t even have a traditional chorus and for the first time Nubian Rose has written a song that is almost 10 minutes long.

    But the more classic rock songs are also in the mix. The story of NUBIAN ROSE started in 2012, with their self-financed, low-key release of their debut album, ’Mountain’. With practically no pr, the album spread like wildfire in the world of Melodic Rock and soon they were featured in some of the greatest rock publications in the World, like Classic Rock Magazine, Burrn!! with outstanding reviews. Rockers like ’Ever see your face’ and ’Mountain’ together with the majestic power ballad, ’How am I', became fan favourites. In 2014 the band released their Sophomore album, with a slightly heavier sound.

    Classic Rock Magazine: “MENTAL REVOLUTION tears out the speakers” 9/10 / Fireworks Magazine: “I personally think that MENTAL REVOLUTION rates as the best mainstream Female-Fronted album of recent years”

    Powerplay Magazine: “If the debut was good, then this has been necking steroids since that release” – 9/10

    NUBIAN ROSE chose Pedro Ferreira to record and mix AMEN in his SpinRoad studios outside of Gothenburg, Sweden. It was a perfect place for the huge analogue sound that they were looking for, with a Neve console, tape machines, a huge room for thundering drum sounds and a beautiful grand piano. Among a lot of other things, Pedro Ferreira produced the multi-platinum album, ”Permission to land”, by The Darkness. Some highlights from the album: ‘Memorial’. A short, emotional piece, where Sofia is experiencing her own death and funeral in the lyrics - ‘Dramatic Days’.

    The album’s first upcoming single, with thunderous drums, big guitars, and catchy synth hooks, made for the arenas - ‘Break Down The Walls’. A high energy heavy rock tune, where Sofia brings out her inner fury - Bright Light.

    For the first time, Christer shares the lead vocals department with Sofia - Lost In The Mist. A powerful, progressive track, almost ten minutes long.

    Forming 'Seven', then DNA doll, M.E. was signed for what was touted as 'One of the biggest deals of the decade' in 1999. Recording took place in L.A. and London with Faith No More producer Matt Wallace on Telstar Records.

    In 2000, M.E. recorded an EP with Andy Gill, played the 2nd Isle of Wight festival in 2002 and Glastonbury in 2003 before being personally invited by Slash to write/record in L.A.

    That resulted in 4, yet unreleased tracks – including an early version of ‘Slither’. Eden then joined forces with Ariel Bender, aka Luther Grosvenor, (Mott the Hoople/Spooky Tooth guitarist) and toured the AB Band, supporting Rod Stewart in 2007.

    He appears on the Mott the Hoople Family Anthology record, and Luther’s If you Dare album (2011). He then formed Men & Gods with long-term Seven/DNA collaborator Alrick Guyler who were signed to Pacific Records in 2011.  Around this time, he formed The Peckham Cowboys with Guy Bailey (Quireboys), and Dale Hodgkinson who signed to Cargo Records.

    Their album Flog It was released in 2011, and the second album - the critically acclaimed '10 Tales from the Gin Palace' - saw Marc working with Timo Kaltio (Hanoi Rocks), and Nigel Mogg (Quireboys) and Darrel Bath (Ian Hunter band). This album was nominated for 'Best Album' in the British Blues Awards 2014, whilst Marc was nominated for 'Best Vocalist'.

    A live, limited-edition album: 'LIVE:WIRED!' taken from the Flog It tour was released in 2015. In 2017, Marc struck up a friendship with Peter Doherty of the Libertines who co-writes ‘Mother Mary’. The pair toured together in 2019 in support of Peter's new project Puta Madres, culminating in a date at London Forum that year.

    Richie Ramone 'Live To Tell' CD PRE-ORDER

    £11.99

    RICHIE RAMONE
    Punk rock icon Richie Ramone is set to release his new album, “Live To Tell,” on April 21, 2023. It is his third as a solo artist, and early reviews are calling it his best to date.

    “Ramones DNA is all over the record for sure,” said Richie, “But at the same time these songs are very personal to me.  Addiction, depression and fighting our demons is something we all struggle with at times, and this comes through in a big way. At the same time, these tracks rock hard as anything I’ve ever done. I really dig it and i’m eager to hear what my fans have to say.”

    The album will be released on Livewire/Cargo.

    Plans are currently being drawn to support the release with a Latin American tour in October, with European dates to follow in November 2023.

    Richie was in the Ramones from February 1983 until August 1987. He was the only drummer to be credited as a composer, writer, and lead vocalist of a Ramones song (six in total) which appear on the Ramones albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity.

    Joey Ramone remarked, "Richie saved the band as far as I'm concerned. He was the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones. He put the spirit back in the band."

    Richie continues to write and record music, having successfully forayed into the film industry as both an actor and soundtrack composer and his output has been remarkable. He will be releasing his new album, Live To Tell, in early 2023.

    His most recent film, Vengeance: Bloodlines Part II, was released in October '22, and is currently free on You Tube. He also dropped a new video, a cover of Cry Little Sister, for the soundtrack to Protége Moi-a film in which he also plays the starring role. Additionally, he will be featured in the upcoming film YouthQuake (both coming in 2023).

    Richie made his acting debut in the indie film HEADCHEESE The Movie (released in 2020), while also contributing tracks for the film. Previously, the prolific artist released two singles, Not Afraid (October 2021, Outro Records), along with the single The Last Time (the critically acclaimed tribute to his father who passed away in 2018).

    All this followed up the success of his second album Cellophane (August 2017), and a 7” single for the track I Fix This, and his first solo album, Entitled, which featured new songs written by Richie as well as new recordings of the classic songs he wrote for the Ramones.

    Richie's song, Somebody Put Something in My Drink, became a Ramones fan favorite and was included on Ramones Mania, one of only two Ramones albums to go gold, as well as Loud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits, an album comprised of songs hand picked by Johnny Ramone as the Ramones' best works.

    In November 2018, Richie released his autobiography, I Know Better Now, on Backbeat Books.

    Sami Yaffa 'The Innermost Journey to Your Outermost Mind'

    £11.99

    Sami Yaffa has had a long and unique career as a musician. He played at the tender age of 16 on the Finnish punk legends Pelle Miljoona Oy's legendary album Moottoritie On Kuuma. As an original member of the band Hanoi Rocks (1980-85) he recorded 5 albums with the band and toured the world extensively until the tragic events that ended the flight of the pioneering band.

    Hanoi Rocks became a major influence on many bands that later became huge like the Guns N'Roses and Pearl Jam. Yaffa's career continued after the break-up of Hanoi and ended up playing with Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, the legendary New York Dolls, the Swedish RnR machine The Hellacopters and many more artists.

    Sami began playing with the Hanoi Rocks lead singer Michael Monroe again in 2010, the collaboration with Michael continues to this day.But now it's time to put out an album under his own name. 'The idea for the solo album started to take shape a few years back. I had written music for the New York Dolls and the Michael Monroe Band, but a lot of the songs and ideas were starting to sound more like me than the other bands.' What kind of music does Yaffa then release under his own name? Versatile. 'I've always loved the music of the bands like The Clash and The Rolling Stones. They can play country, funk, reggae and rock`n`roll, and still sound like themselves. I wanted the same kind of versatility for my own album. '

    The album has influences on a fairly wide scale, but it hardly surprises those who have followed Yaffa's career: in addition to his own music career, he has been seen getting to know the musical cultures of different parts of the world as a host of the Sami Yaffa: Soundtracker TV series.

    'However, the beating heart of the album is in rock`n`roll and punk, I don't shy away from that.' Even though it's a solo album, Yaffa mentions a few of names without whom the album wouldn't have been completed. One being the drummer Janne Haavisto, with whom Sami played already as a teenager. And the other being his Michael Monroe Bands band mate Rich Jones who co-wrote a bulk of the songs with Sami. Also the Stone Sour guitarist Christian Martucci and Smack guitarist Rane played an important role in the creation of the album.

    Sami is ready to hit the road after the release of the album with a line up of Janne Haavisto on drums, Linde Lindström (HIM) on guitar and Burton (HIM) on keyboards.

    £21.99

    Limited edition on white vinyl and limited to 500 copies worldwide. First time on LP / Originally release on CD in 2010.

    This is a masterful and critically acclaimed acoustic retrospective of Tony Harnell's prolific career. With new arrangements and a stellar production, these great songs sound fresh and vibrant with a new spark breathed into them by some of New York City's finest musicians.

    This is a very special record: a stripped down, reinvented retrospective of Tony Harnell's past classics originally recorded with his previous bands TNT, Westworld and Starbreaker, with one brand new song 'Anywhere But Here' recorded especially for this release.

    The idea of re-recording some repertoire classics came about after Tony performed some low key shows in New York in late 2008, with some talented and accomplished musicians that were not part of the Metal/Hard Rock scene.

    The desire was to breathe new life into the songs with new arrangements, key changes and added parts, it's like listening to songs you know in a whole new way.

    Warrior Soul 'Rock n" Roll Disease'

    £20.49

    Comin'in again with all guns blazin'- Warrior Soul have a new record set for release in June 19, affectionately called 'Rock n'Roll Disease'. The album is the follow up to last year's very successful and critically acclaimed, raw and raucous 'Back On The Lash' release. RnRD promises to turn out to be a real stormer.

    "We are going for the same feel as 'Lash' but honing it in more and picking it up a bit. Back On The Lash'was raw, fun and loose, this is too, but we are pushing it all over the top" says main man Kory Clarke - Clarke is using the same writing and playing team in the studio as the Back On The Lash'release ensuring continuity and allowing him to keep hitting his current rich vein of form - Song titles include Up The Dose'and Off My Face' - Oh yes, if you wanna start your Summer rockin', go out and get a 'Rock n Roll Disease'.

    'We live on credit, we live on dope, there's no promises When you're livin' on hope'- Blown Away (lyrics by Kory Clarke). There's been a lot of speculation lately about the death of the rock star'. We keep losing them, but we don't make any new ones. Part of the reason is that there just isn't a million-dollar infrastructure to create megawatt stars anymore at least not the kind that play distorted guitars, and part of it is just a radical shift in the culture towards quieter, insulated lifestyles.'

    "You mighta had dope, guns, and riots in the streets, but your kids have smartphones and Netflix and they could not care less about your cyclops revolution. Which is a bit of a nightmare for the last true rock star, a wild-card from the streets of Detroit, Kory Clarke who made his reputation and career on being the baddest motherf*cker in all of Badsville with an incendiary socio-political agenda and a roar-for-war that rattles mountains." Classic Rock.

    Warrior Soul shows aren't just gigs. They are profane sermons delivered with high velocity and maximum volume and this is what this new Warrior Soul album is all about!

    Hank Erix 'Nothing But Trouble' CD

    £11.99

    Release Date: 05/10/2018

    Hank Erix is the frontman of the Swedish AOR band HOUSTON. A band that have been a bright star in the AOR / Melodic rock sky over their last five releases. The band received the best AOR album 2010 accolade in Classic Rock Magazine and have appeared on several impressive festivals throughout Europe such as Sweden Rock and Download festival.

    Over almost a decade with HOUSTON, Hank Erix has made quite a name for himself in the melodic rock world and it's finally time for the release of his solo debut Nothing but Trouble'. The album features songs that has been marinating for years and sees the band leader of HOUSTON taking a bold step forward from the expected Houston sound and sees Hank flexing his more hard rocking muscles.

    Tagging along with Hank Erix on this 1700cc motorcycle ride of an album are members of Therion, Degreed, Art Nation, Wildness, Kryptonite , Palace, Gutterdämerung & Adrenaline Rush. From the opening hook-filled but hard-hitting riffola of opener Turn To Darkness'through to the brooding and Dokken-esque first single Fortune Hunter'and the final salvo of For The Restless and Young', Hank shows a darker and heavier edge while the trademark melody always remains.

    As Hank reveals 'they say that life is not about being who you are; it's about becoming who you want to be. After almost a decade with Houston I've learned a lot about myself and the music that I love.

    These songs are me, all me, singing my heart out for the world to hear and this album has been a dream of mine, something to cross off the bucket list if you will' 'Hank Erix is a bonafide genius and AOR hero. There, I've said it.' /GloryDazeMusic

    Sulo 'Nightshift / Brilliant Outsiders' 2CD

    £12.99

    Sulo Karlsson is well known as the frontman of Swedish glam boogie rockers Diamond Dogs and lead singer in the UK Punk supergroup The Crunch, that features members from The Clash, Sham 69 & Cockney Rejects.

    But he's also probably the most productive and creative singer/songwriter in modern time. He has been writing and releasing 5 albums (yep, 5) per year since 2008 for himself and other artists in almost any genre. Punk, Pop, Soul, Country and Rock n Roll it doesn't matter, Sulo is literally everywhere!  

    If last years gifted Rock n Roll album Sulo's Full English', contained 19 tracks with guest performances from Chris Spedding, Wilko Johnson, Robert Wyatt etc was impressive, Sulo has managed to top that. This double deal is a songwriter at the top of his game.  

    Night Shift'is a dark, melancholy almost acoustic ride into the depths of the soul. With naked, strong and sometimes painful lyrics on a bed of blue coloured melodies, Sulo manages to create a new musical landscape. He says 'It's a musical diary of the things that keeps you awake at night, a study of the darkness within'.

    Brilliant Outsiders'is Sulo's most ambitious work so far. Together with producer Kevin Porée he has written and recorded 13 country duets. It all started with the song Constant Reminder', written and recorded at Berry Street studio in London before recording the vocals with duet partner Maria McKee in LA. Then followed a musical journey around the world, London, Stockholm, Los Angeles, Nashville, Florida and more.

    The line-up of duet partners is extraordinary with Janis Ian, Terry Reid, Bellamy Brothers, Linda Gail Lewis (Jerry Lee's sister), Paul Young and more. Backed up by the UK's finest Country band Los Pacaminos including Jamie Moses (Queen, Tom Jones Band), Hamish Stuart (Average White band, Paul McCartney etc).

    The two albums together are an amazing collection of songs. 27 tracks with such high-quality music and lyrics that you can't help wonder how it's possible. A double album for the lonely nights, early mornings and the long drive home.

Classic Rock

    Warrior Soul are back with profane sermons delivered at high velocity and maximum volume and this is what the new album is all about! Back On The Lash'is a powerful statement of intent from Kory and Warrior Soul. Kory Clarke is one of the last true rock n'roll frontmen and since the classic Last Decade Dead Century'in 1990 he has continued to swim against the tide of mediocrity and safe rebellion.

    His last solo album Payback's A Bitch'received the full score in Rolling Stone magazine upon release. This firebrand of political invective and rock n'roll is back on the lash with a new album for 2017 and you won't hear a more powerful or authentic album this year. It is everything you would expect aggressive, vile and wants to make you go to the bar and tell the planet to fuck off.

    "Kory Clarke should be considered and is one of the great Rock Stars of all time along with Bon Scott, Axl Rose and Micheal Monroe." Lars Ulrich - Metallica on 'It's Electric' Apple Radio 1. 2017

    The first single from III'is entitled Dangerous Love'and is released on October 6th with the album to follow on November 24th. Together with renowned producer and ex MTV rocker Martin Karlegård (Reptile Smile) the band created III'. Martin Karlegård has worked with French idol singer Jenifer, Swedish pop star Brolle Jr and world famous Swedish band The Sounds'and has helped the band add a mature and organic sound to their brand of classy and classic Melodic Rock.

    As singer Hank Erix explains, "It's been a very creative time with Martin, it's great to find a producer that brings out the best in you for every single take. Personally I've never delivered such a vocal performance as on this album. I really found my sound and I have matured musically since our last album and especially since our debut in 2010. This is a new beginning for Houston."

    The song writing is familiar but with a fresh twist and additional attitude from the West Coast / AOR loving band.

    Sulo 'Full English' CD

    £11.99

    SULO (Diamond Dogs) cooks up a traditional British dish and invites along some of finest chefs for a greasy spoon of rock n'roll". Since Diamond Dogs called it a day after releasing their final effort "Quitters and Complainers" frontman Sulo Karlsson been a very busy man.

    Sulo has seen active duty touring and recording with his UK supergroup The Crunch (Terry Chimes/Clash, Dave Tregunna/Sham 69, Mick Geggus/Cockney Rejects), releasing a country duet album "Sulo's Brilliant Outsiders" that saw him share the microphone with artists such a as Maria Mckee, Bellamy Brothers, Paul Young, Janis Ian and more as well as releasing an Americana masterpiece with The Piggyback Riders featuring legendary U.K. Guitarist Chris Spedding.

    But even if Diamond Dogs is now history, his deep love for British 70's rock by the likes of Rod Stewart, Frankie Miller and Mott the Hoople has not cooled.

    'Sulo's Full English'kicks off in classic Diamond Dogs fashion. 12 newly penned tracks sounding, smelling and tasting like swinging London 1973. The album combines soul, country and all the ingredients that used to make rock n roll great - backed up by some of the finest musicians in Britain including Chris Spedding, Jamie Moses, Chris Parks, Melvin Duffy and more.

    Full English'is produced by Kevin Poree (James Brown, Radiohead). From the opening chord of the heavy rocker "Lady Jane" to the final breath of the smoky ballad "My Bounty From Above" it's all killer and no filler and all guided by the blue-eyed soulful raspy voice of Sulo.

    And if that wasn't enough you'll get "The Full English Extras" with tracks taken from the soundtrack of Sulo's book project "Keep Yourself Alive".

    This Includes exclusive guest appearances from Wilko Johnson, Spike (The Quireboys) and tracks co-written with Billy Bremner (Rockpile) and Robert Wyatt.

    Full English'is a total of 19 track high calorie loaded tracks. That's what you call A FULL ENGLISH'

  • Shotgun 'Live : Down Decadencia Drive' - Cargo Records UK

    Shotgun 'Live : Down Decadencia Drive'

    £11.99

    Band: Zinny J Zan, Stixx, Rob Marcello, Chris Laney - Mixed by Chris Laney at LaneyLand - Mastered by Classe Persson at CRP Recordings.

    A rocking new half breed of the original SHOTGUN MESSIAH is now releasing an in your face live album with all the songs from Shotgun Messiah's highly acclaimed first album!

    SHOTGUN MESSIAH was the pioneers of the glam and sleaze era back in the 80's and one of the first acts to come out of Sweden to relocate to the U.S. - and actually hit the charts and make a name for themselves.

    The debut album sold 490000 copies in the U.S. alone. With extensive tours, press, radio and TV covering the entire U.S. under the belt for some years, SHOTGUN MESSIAH was worn out in 1993 and decided to call it quits. Later in the 90's you could find the former members in bands like MARILYN MANSON, TOM WAITS and ZAN CLAN.

    Now 25 years after the release of their first album, two of the band's biggest supporters contacted singer ZINNY J. ZAN and drummer STIXX in order for them to consider a reunion and actually get the opportunity to play these songs for one last tour. An opportunity for the supporters that once missed out to hear the songs live - but also for it to be captured and released as a live album.

    Two hardcore supporters wanted to see the original line-up reform. Since that was a definite no-go they gladly volunteered to fill the two missing slots. The two fanboys happened to be none other than - ¦CHRIS LANEY - Singer, songwriter and producer as well as a recording musician in his own right. Chris has worked and played with members of KISS, Black Sabbath, W.A.S.P. and many, many more.

    ROB MARCELLO - The shredder from American band DANGER DANGER - and also seen as one of the greatest guitar players in the world. MINUS MESSIAH CHRIS and ROB, together with original SHOTGUN MESSIAH members ZINNY J. ZAN and STIXX, put together SHOTGUN (50% of the original band = 50% of the original name) in order to tour and play the entire first album live to the supporters who never got to see or hear it back in the 80's.

    SHOTGUN LIVE: DOWN DECADENCIA DRIVE is the result of this collaboration and a damn good live album that captures the nerve, the riffs, the attitude - and that straight-in-your-face-style that once was the trademark of SHOTGUN MESSIAH.

    Sulo 'Sings The Poems Of Garry Johnson: Punk Rock Stories & Tabloid Tales'

    £11.99

    Garry Johnson was the first and the best of Britain's street-punk poets. A former Borstal boy, his Boys Of The Empire collection brought poetry to a whole generation of working class punks and Skins. He was radical, anti-racist and anti-Establishment. His message was black and white working class youth have the same enemy and the same interests. Class was all that mattered to Garry.

    'The Voice Of Oi is unity.' he wrote. 'No them and us. just you and me. Think how strong we can be, united against society. Garry became a poet by accident. 'Id formed my own punk band. The Buzz Kids.' herecalls. 'One night in East London we played our first and last gig 'I was speeding out of my head and thought I was the future of rock n'roll. In my mind, I was Johnny Rotten meets Ziggy Stardust. 'We had seven songs. including National Service, Dead-End Yobs and a cover of Ziggy Stardust'. 'I wanted to sing them, but I accepted I couldn't carry a tune. Garry had always loved music. 'From my early teens I was obsessed with David Bowie. I wanted to be Bowie. But things were very different in those days.

    There was no easy entry into the media/rock music...or so I thought at the time. 'Now, because I've done a lot of reading - something I never did at school, much to my shame I was only interested in girls and football ~ I've realised I was wrong about that and that great music always came from the working class...all the way back to the blues, and then on through Elvis and the Beatles, the Small Faces. the Kinks, right through to Brixton boy Bowie whose mum was a waitress and whose dad worked for Barnardo's. All of them were geniuses from humble roots'.

    'Then it was punk and not books that made me realise working class kids could become stars. I saw The Sex Pistols and saw Johnny Rotten... and my life changed. I loved it all, the Pistols, The Clash. The Jam, The Buzzcocks, X Ray Spex...

    'I like poets who can really write like Bob Dylan with Hurricane', Paul Weller's lyrics are my favourite poems he's a poet genius! I like Linton Kwesi Johnson and John Cooper Clarke, and early Elvis Costello as well. I admire Rotten, Weller. Costello, Dury, BOWIE, John Lennon. All smart people. Music is the most important thing in the world, better then football, better then drugs...My life would've been so boring without all of the bands l've mentioned already and Trojan reggae, Rod Stewart and The Faces, Roxy Music. Mott The Hoople, Lou Reed, Bob Dylan. Squeeze, Cockney Rebel and hundreds more.
