I think Lead Belly was smashing. Dunno what it is about Johnson. Could be the quality of the recordings, but I love the likes of Washington Phillips and Henry Thomas (not the one off of E.T.), and their records sound ruddy awful.

I was 17

However let us not lump in the excellent Stranglers with The Boomtown Rats please.

The Stranglers, however ancient, deserved to be considered New Wave and also unlike The Boomtown Rats were very good.

The Police contained Sting so need no further comment.

I first came across them in the back room of a pub in Redhill, in the mid-Seventies, still trading as The Guildford Stranglers. 20p to get in. Met them many years later at Moles in Bath. Decent blokes, but I always got the impression Cornwall may have been a posh boy.

The Police don't belong in this thread, there is no reason that anyone should like them.

Stranglers were good. Golden Brown is top quality opioid. Remember Juke box jury analysing it and thinking they are missing the point. Bit like my English literature teacher and wordsworth.

But can't stand Police and that whiney Geordie ****, an englishman in New York makes me want a to vomit

Cornwell had/has an air about him that made Strummer look like a council estate chav in comparison.

Which I think would have pleased man of the people Strummer no end.

In truth, I'm just not that inclined to bluesy stuff. I know it's all rooted there, but it just doesn't move me.

I know opinions are like arseholes &c. but I can't imagine not enjoying platters like "Lucille" or "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" or "Maybellene" or "Tutti Frutti".

But what about the pop thrill of those Little Richard singles? All those great Berry lyrics?

Saw him at St James Park last year when we played Newcastle, he is no longer a Geordie ****, he is now an old wrinkly Geordie ****.

The visceral thrill of their best known songs are what rock and roll is all about. I get that you don't get it, that's what this thread is all about, but JFC.

Sufjan Stevens and Devendra Banhart. Mainly because I find the way people say their names so irritating I've never actually bothered to listen to them.
