Spacepig Pig | 1453 comments So it appears we have a fair bit of leeway this week. Either go with the 70's all girl rock band, or branch out into the later, as far as I am aware, heavier, solo offerings. I base that assumption solely on my very hazy memories of seeing Lita Ford play a wonderfully grotty little club in Aberdeen many many moons ago.

Usual rules etc, noms in by 10 pm Sunday, youtube link if possible etc etc.

A gig free weekend coming up for me, first one for ages, might give me some time to catch up on the mass of CDs that have mysteriously appeared over the last few weeks. Another all day metal fest next weekend :-)

jings, it's centuries since i thought about or heard the runaways. i'd quite forgotten how mediocre they were (if you remove the visuals). the post runaways stuff is simply abysmal.

Spacepig Pig | 1453 comments Sorry for the late finish gang, and for not voting. My plan was to listen to the playlist then vote and close it off. But then a friend turned up at the door and reminded me we had planned to go to Dublin to see Dweezil Zappa - now, car waiting - let's go!

As a result, we have a tie for first place, but by virtue of 3 max pointers to 2, the winner this week, SussexWelsh with Moonshine Lullaby. Pipped at the post, Brass Neck's Cherry Bomb, and filling the podium - Jemma, and Baby Blue.


message 25: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6452 comments well done the winners! for some reason 'hollywood' appeared on the famous 'new wave' polygram comp. along with some good stuff - talk about jumping on the bandwagon! take away the basques etc (ooh yes please!) and they were a middling rock band. hey ho!

you'd have thought dweezil zappa might have wanted to change his name when he was old enough (a la zowie bowie!) to something like doug or kev, but, again, hey ho!

Tim Franklin | 8608 comments The one with the guy gobbing on the sleeve? I thought that had Cherry Bomb on it

Tech XXIII  | 6452 comments don't have a copy anymore, checked it, and they were both on it.

message 28: by Tim (new)

Tim Franklin | 8608 comments Yes, was just doing that too.

The Runaways were a one song band really, and that song was Cherry Bomb. Reading up about them, they were just victims of Kim Fowley's most revolting fantasies; and much worse than that for Jackie Fuchs.

Brass Neck | 3682 comments 'Basques always had a separatist movement.........' - while Wonderbras had a lift & separatist movement?


message 40: by Brass Neck (new)

Brass Neck | 3682 comments Sorry for not voting on my own nom. I finished attending my place of work a week last Thursday but I haven't stopped working yet as there are humungous numbers of unmarked GCSEs - probably done 500 extras in last week and a bit. Sends your eyes funny looking a scrawly gibberish on a laptop after a while.

Hi Suzy. Yep, tatts and piercings ... ohh no! 😳 She’s 5 going on 13 gods knows what’ll happen when the teen years kick in. She’s just completed her first year of school and done really well - can’t help wondering where the little baby has gone though. 🤔
