    Not gonna lie... some of the jeans are so tight they are making me uncomfortable :p LOL

    The gent 2nd to the right has some man hips going on.. ;) And all the hipsters thought thy started the "skinny jeans" fad.. Nope...Jaguar did it 1st.

    The bridge info was quite cool, reminds me of the golden gate design. My brother in law is a Golden Gate officer for SFPD. His job is to try to catch jumpers, kind of a messed up job really. He gets to take a few trips up the top of the bridge, I think he gets to do it 3x a year where he can take 2-3 people at a time. He's asked if me and my gal want to do it, its really rare to be able to get to the top, we have yet to do it. Him and my sister did it a few months back and sent me the pictures. :)

    wow man frank you just moved up in my book substantially, I love reading your posts. Always filled with great facts and good history. I kind assumed you were a military buff as ive seen many of your other posts and your painted solider was quite prolific, I like to study WW1 and WW2.

    I love learning about the trench warfare in WW1.

    Are you familiar with the 1917 underground bombing of the Germans trenches and strongholds? It was the largest explosion in history prior to the atom bomb. If you are into the British fight that is one story you should look into.

    Man Frank, you never let me down LOL

    Well thanks John. I've been a history buff for as long as I can remember.Mostly American Civil War history though.
    WWI, The Great War has always fascinated me as well although I don't know a lot about it.
    There was a similar underground mining/explosion during the CW at Petersburg, VA. The Battle Of The Crater, made famous in the movie Cold Mountain.
    The explosion is quite impressive in this clip from the movie. The battle scenes are brutal.


    Back in 2002 the BBC did one of those reality shows where ordinary people are placed in historic environments and then they live the life for prolonged periods. They did one about WWI British foot soldiers called "The Trench". Fascinating stuff.

    OK, we've strayed way off the path, LOL, but that's cool with me.
    Steering back and keeping with the conversation, Here's some stone cold NWOBHM World War One storytelling,
    Sledgehammers "Over The Top".

    I know right? You'd need a detachable Johnson to squeeze into the jeans second from the left.

    I think I'd have a panic attack if I went to the top of the GG Bridge. I've seen pictures.

    I take that back. I KNOW I would have a panic attack. And I used to climb telephone poles for a living.

    So I just got the FLAC Files on my little FIO! Frank has perfect timing, I brought It in this morning to pull some flack files off it due to looking into a new DAP.

    Didn't bother with the artwork yet, but have it blasting in my office right now.

    Frank did you rip this from the actual LP? The Quality is great!

    Yep. That was a very fresh rip done yesterday.
    One of the more important NWOBHM albums in my opinion... then again I say that about all of them.
    It was a ridiculous album cover. I tend to think it may have hindered sales, especially in the U.S.

    It's a wonder that Metallica never covered any of their songs, although I'm pretty sure that Lars Ulrich said that the Metallica song "Whiplash" was their effort to emulate "Axe Crazy" which is one of the bonus tracks that I included on the rip.

    Im a fan of British audio gear... never got into the music to deeply tho… Loved my quads and B&W gear, my Onix amps were quite prolific.

    Im on "the fox" now. great high energy album for work!

    And Jaguar is very "Positive Energy" as well. No dark, brooding moody stuff. It's all bright and chipper with them... the dark brooding stuff is what Witchfinder General is for. :rflmao:

    Just giving the Jaguar rip a good loud listen right now. It really does sound good if I do say so myself.
    A little reading to go along with it.

    Jaguar Is Keeping the Spirit of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal Alive

    Guitarist Gary Peppard tells us all about Bristol band's wild early days, the joy of playing fast, and their new vinyl reissue of 'Power Games.'

    No introduction necessary.

    Women In Uniform was a song by an Australian band called Skyhooks;. They recorded it in 1978 and had a minor hit with it in the UK and a major hit at home.

    Iron Maiden covered it for their 2nd single under the EMI label. (Their first recording was The Soundhouse Tapes single in 1979 released by Rock Hard Records)
    Yes that's Margaret (The Iron Lady) Thatcher awaiting Eddie and the girls. She has some payback to deliver.

    The B side features Invasion, a very punkish song about Vikings raiding England. The song never made it to a studio album but a similar song called Invaders appeared on The Number Of The Beast. a couple of years later The 12" version was fleshed out with a live version of Phantom Of The Opera.

    Women In Uniform was the last Iron Maiden recording with guitarist Dennis Stratton, who would soon be replaced by Adrian Smith of Urchin,

    Iron Maiden - Women In Uniform 12" 45rpm
    1980 EMI 2C 052-52879Z French Pressing
