    Batcave edition:

    This is gonna need some set-up. So, Apparently there was this children’s morning show called “No. 73” in Britain. What ever the hell possessed them to book this band is beyond me (think Mick Jagger dressed as Dr. Frank-N-Furter). @3:00 they even do a little skit. That’s not the weirdest part. Gary Glitter is in the skit -- on this children’t show.


    At least they didn’t play,

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    As far as I’m concerned, these guys deserve their place with the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones and The Who as revolutionary British progenitors of later music. I still can’t believe this was from 1970. I mean seriously, besides Art Rock like King Crimson and Pink Floyd, these guys were REALLY ahead of their time!!! Some say Zeppelin were the first Heavy Metal band… perhaps -- and I’m not at all saying any of these bands are better than the other, they are all Legend. Just that I give it up more for those who dared to be dark in the age of Hippies!


    Why the sweet intro bass solo was cut from this, I don’t know…


    Seriously. The music of the 90’s owes perhaps more to Sabbath than the Beatles, etc. But without the Beatles, where would the rest have come?

    • KQ says:

      They are brilliant.

      To me Rap probably put American music over the top in the 90’s. It was hardly a product from Britain even though toward the end of the 90’s they added allot more techno. Rap owes it’s roots to Funk and R&B. But face it the most unique music in this country was created by African American artists including rock and roll.
