Anything Jagger has sung in a cod-Jamaican accent pales against Sting and The Police's unbeatable Wackin on de Mon.... The major issue with finger-wagging, call-out pieces like this is their appalling literalism. Jagger sang *this* about *that* so he/The Stones must be *this*. It's a formulae of stupid that is near universal as clickbait. One thinks of a shit that won't flush. J

It's not particularly well written, it's too obtuse and that is revealed from the writer's opening salvo against Brown Sugar - 'despite its clumsy lyrics and blatant fetishization of Black women'- when in fact the lyrics are not in the least clumsy, and the 'fetishization' is not simply of 'black women' but of sex, smack, sado masochism, cunnilungus, p

FANTASTIC series. Jenna Coleman, what an actor! The Stones songs perfectly bookended the series, I thought.

That racist idiocy from a thick-as-a-brick, self-regarding @#$%& vicar forces us to remember the utter stupidity of most of the clergy. The Spanish republicans had it about right.

Indeed. Ugly and ignorant sexist crap. She's made some seriously great albums, that's beyond argument. As for'WorriedAboutYou' what has he ever done but breathe in, breathe out, defecate? Better to keep it all in, if that's what he comes out with.

It's a really great series. I'm just done with episode 4, and that has a fantastic montage with Harry Nilsson's Jump into the Fire, which sounds so New Wave-punky to my ears, but released in 71. Fingerprint File indeed sounds fantastic and works brilliantly.

Soem of the nineties stuff is excellent, but it's the Robert Calvert related albums with Lemmy that are really out there. I liked them so much I managed to align the stars to make a documentary about the band ... It's a great band story from a strange weird time. There's a new book about it all from Joe Banks, Hawkwind: Days of the Underground - Radical Escapism in the Age Of P

ROugh and Ready is one of Bob's amazing albums - up there with the best, a work of magic, mystery and imagination, unprecedented in what it does and how Bob weaves his own myths, the ones pinned on him and the ones used by him into the larger folklore he's always drawn from, and for me, the subdued breathing of the music, yes it is pretty simple, but for for good reason, is the perfect

19 June 2018. My first Stones show. Hope to God it will not be the last. I reviewed it for The arts Desk - the only review of what MAY be their last show in the UK, I believe. Sat with my bro in law in the otherwise empty press seats, while my daughter was engaged that morning to work hospitality at one of the VIP 'boxes' and saw the whole show, and loved it too (she'd not been lon

I thought it as great, Keith stroking a few underlay punctuation parts, Charlie air drumming. Mick n Ronnie brilliant. The hate here for Keith is - I dunno, look to the condition of your own lives, and stop projecting onto Keith.So he didn't windmill his arm over a strat. So what - he was deep in his own sense of time. It was lovely. Let's hope they walk onto a real-life stage again....

"One journo called Murder Most Foul better than anything on Tempest. What a lazy thing to say, geezer obviously haven't heard the record." Alexis Patredis, at the Grauniad. He once gave a Dylan gig one star, complete with every tired old journo cliche of the period. He knows nothing. Especially about the half dozen great songs on Tempest.

Got a proof copy of the book just before Christmas, and finally reviewed it for ye olde International Times. It's a brilliant book, very funny and insightful, some great footnotes, a broad perspective, and this is someone who rates Black & Blue AND Love You Live. I tijhnk maybe it's one of the best on the MUSIC - really shifts perspective on some of the songs that are very familiar

Great interview. I love this: "But rock and roll was high energy, explosive and cut down. It was skeleton music, came out of the darkness and rode in on the atom bomb and the artists were star headed like mystical Gods."

Reviewed the new WHO album for The Arts Desk. The first two songs, Detour, Beads, Break the News, Rockin in Rage and She Rocked MY World are great Who songs IMHO, Roger especially good on the last three, esp the two slower songs. Townshend has this rock-infused musical theatre way of writing - goes back to By Numbers I'm sure - and it's Who Are You and Numbers that this album resembles.

Yes I bought the first complete show CD, too. There's 11 out of the 3 tracks that are unissued, and half a dozen that reappear unedited. The sound quality is fantastic - new tape transfers, and as Kramer says, the tapes stay in good nick on account of whale oil ... Moby Dick's sweat
