    You know, those bands you were really into for 10 minutes and then somehow they quickly betray you by becoming shite.

    Prime example: UB40

    Food for Thought, Signing Off, Rock Against Thatcher and then it's 'Hey this reggae thing's a bit of a lark ain't it?'

    Kevin Rowland - went mad

    Oasis - Two brilliant albums then too much cocaine.

    M People. Good for about two nanoseconds now I hate them more than you would ever believe.

    Simply Red. Good white soul until we discovered what a cock Hucknall was.

    Elton John - should have died in 1977

    Bob Dylan - should have died on that motorcycle in 1966

    Rod Stewart - kids, take it from me, in the early 70s if you liked Rod, you weren't the coolest kid in the class but you were doing ok.

    Stone Roses. Thought they were the saviour of music. They weren't. The scruffy northern monkeys.
     
  2. Isn't it the other way around. Two brilliant albums then stop taking cocaine!!!

    He only went mad for a decade, give the guy a break! :evil: (OK, the dress was a bit of a mistake, but the accompanyig album had a few good bits amongst the sh!te; I'm one of the 500 or so peeps that bought it!). OK, I'm a bit of a Dexys anorak, but anyone who saw the 2003 shows will have seen top notch musical entertainment... currently (apparently) in the studio again, getting their soulful thang together...

    Kirstie - Have you made these up? They have to have a modicum of success before becoming crap.

    As a Dexy's anorak, how do you get on with 'Don't Stand Me Down'?

    I desperately want to like it but I can't.
     
  9. No I've not made them up, they all used to be fairly big acts on the Industrial/Techno scene in the early 90s. Essentially they all had reasonable CDs out that defined their sound but within a couple of releases just went really pants...

    A definite fave... way removed from the first 2 albums (as they were from each other, in fact!) but I can't really exaplain why, but it's not just that I like it, it's actually important to me personally, if that makes sense!

    Metallica the signs started to show on Justice for All then the commercialism of the Black Album followed by two episodes of Load then the noise of St Anger. Sad Sad from the same Band who wrote Fade to Black, Creeping Death Disposable Heroes Motorbreath et all.

    Maiden should have thrown in the towel years ago have become a parody of themselves the sound on the last album was like a puddle of mud. Why Bruce and Ade chose to go back will never know Dickinson was producing some great stuff out on his own cant see that they needed the dough.

    You need to keep taking the drugs for them to sound good.
