I have to agree. Nothing beats the A-team. Except possibly Dangermouse. Haha smiley - biggrin

Anyway, what's wrong with Judas Priest! I mean, they may not have the pure cheesy class of Maiden but they still rock out. smiley - devil hurhurhur.

my brother used to work at h2g2 and was a close friend of DNA, he was really shocked and sad afterwards smiley - sadface he even worked on minor non h2g2 things for him after he left (summer 2000 i think it was)and as payment he gave him his OWN digital camera!

DANGERMOUSE is the BEST cartoon EVER!!!! (after Beavis and Butthead of course!)

I have 'Suicide is painless'. I'd been looking for it for ages, and then found it when I wasn't looking. It was in a second hand shop on a compilation called 'The Greatest Hits of 1992'. Apparently it reached number 7 in the UK charts, and I still have a vague recollection of them performing the song on 'Top of the Pops', with James shirt-less, with images of marylin monroe's face stamped all over his torso in the shape of a cross.

The Manic's are my favourite band. I got 'This is my Truth tell me Yours' on the day of its release, and I think after that, I didn't bother with their latest album. I left it for over a year, then I bought it a couple of weeks ago and I ave to say I was hugely impressed. There are some duff tracks on it (Wattsville Blues,never let Nicky sing again), but its great. So much better than the bloated 'This is my Truth'. It puts me in mind of something like 'The Holy Bible' but something adjascent to it, like a younger brother of that album. Its cool.

Now that I've listened to this album, I really hope they can make one last one before the end. I know they're thinking of calling it a day soon but, based on this, I would certainly buy one last album of theirs.

And yes, Baby Elian really should have been a single. So uplifting and graceful. That albums 'Tsumani' I reckon.

My earliest manic memory was my brother coming in the room singing "everything must go" (which at the time was their latest single) and i asked him what he was singing. His reply was "Well, you and your band taste in music would have never heard of the band. Its called "everything must go" and its by the manic street preachers". i never forgot that lol! Sad arent i! he was right though...i was into the spice girls big time back then...

Did i mention i saw SIP in a shop in camden? an original as well *sobs*
