    nice, never heard of them
    sounds pretty industrial :)

    yeah, one of the early post punk "industrial" bands.. formed in the late 70's.
    becoming more commercial throughout the years. finally disbanding in the mid 80's.
    seen them live towards the end ...a shadow of their former selves but still very exciting. these days The Health and safety brigade wouldn't allow the kind of anticks they were getting up to live back then.

    this jem from the early 80's is more accessible than their early stuff ... along with Test Dept, the template for the metal bashing Depeche had commercial success with later

    Friday night and the lights are low
    There's no point in asking
    Looking out for a place to go
    You'll get no reply
    Where they play the right music
    Oh just remember a don't decide
    Getting in the swing
    I got no reason it's all too much
    You come to look for a king
    You'll always find us
    Anybody could be that guy
    Out to lunch
    Night is young and the music's high
    Oh we're so pretty
    With a bit of rock music
    Oh so pretty
    Everything is fine
    We're vacant
    You're in the mood for a dance
    Oh we're so pretty
    And when you get the chance
    Oh so pretty
    You are the dancing queen
    A-vacant
    Young and sweet
    Don't ask us to attend
    Only seventeen
    Cause we're not all there
    Dancing queen
    Oh don't pretend 'cause I don't care
    Feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah
    I don't believe illusions 'cause too much is real
    You can dance
    So stop your cheap comment
    You can jive
    Cause we know what we feel
    Having the time of your life
    Oh we're so pretty
    Ooh, see that girl
    Oh so pretty
    Watch that scene
    A-vacant
    Dig in the dancing queen

    Nice mash-up :D

    OH MY GOD. I had no idea it was a lenticular. I was holding it one way and seeing the beatific face of Our Lord, and then I tilted it at an angle and suddenly it was a grinning skull with flames!

    Genius, @JohnnyGoodyear

  • Paul McCartney was apparently asked how it feels to be the best songwriter on the planet, to which he shrugged and said "I dunno... you should probably ask Neil Finn".

    Likely to be more Urban Myth than fact, but it does make me smile.

    Neil Finn's catalogue is filled with perfect pop songs. Everybody knows Crowded House's "Don't Dream it's over", but even his early stuff with his brother's band, Split Enz, was catchy as hell.

    I'm gonna pick one Neil Finn song to post below, but I agree with the 4th post on this thread. No contest.
