    When I was out working in the yard I remembered another one:

    "Most bands wait until they're successful before getting into drugs. Like the Beatles".

    Yeah - why stand on ceremony? :D

    This band is really starting to grow on me. They got the tambourine guy (actually a multi-instrumentalist as you're about to see) and maybe a redundant guitarist. But they were definitely ahead of their time and seemed to be willfully ignoring the whole 90's alternative / grunge "movement". I think Anton just wants to make good music and gets annoyed at things that get in the way. It's too bad the true indie system / structure wasn't in place for them like it is for today's bands.

    All this BJM chatter has me digging out all my records. I seem to do so every couple years, usually for a couple months. I'be got "Her Satanic Majesty's..." on right now. There are a few misses on it, but they're more than made up for by some incredible music. "Anenome" might be their best song, and it's on this album. There are two Matt Hollywood songs that are absolute gems, "No Come Down" and "Miss June '75". "Donovan Said" is also a recommended listen.

    Donovan Said


    Miss June '75

    Kinda reminds me of Wire. Long enough (2:54) for two Wire songs. :D

    I really got hooked on Club Gaga (unfortunate name IMO) a little while ago but I can't find their LP anywhere and as far as I can tell they only made the one album. That album is great though.

    Just checking out Wire now, nice. Yeah, you're right they do sound similar. Here's an example (2:19):

    I like to test my opinions to see if anyone else had the same idea. So I Googled "Club Gaga" with "Wire" and found this -



    So they're from Athens GA like REM and the B-52's. Pink Flag was released in 1977 but I didn't buy it until around 1992 when I got my first CD player. The guy at the CD store recommended them.

    Looking at the Pink Flag wiki page I noticed this connection; "American alternative rock band R.E.M. reworked "Strange" on their 1987 album Document." Anyway, Pink Flag is a seminal piece of work, I've learned, that has influenced a number of bands. Although I've heard of them before (Johnno has posted them several times) I never knew. Thanks for that.
