I heard the Seahorses comparison Shirehorses
. Hey-diddle-dee guitar, then a vocal with too much reverb rhymes 'all'
I'll join Colin in old man reminiscence by saying that the Stone Roses phenomenon passed me by. My 1989 was The Horned God
, Buffalo Stance
, Blackadder Goes Fourth
, and the new experience of following the preproduction of a film (based on comics I read) with mounting excitement, then being disappointed by the film
Didn't read NME, missed them having a power cut on Later
. Months later, when their stuff started getting reissued, it annoyed me that they only ever seemed to have recorded one video, which they recut and overlaid with increasing layers of psychedelic eighties graphics everytime they put out a song *.
Despite quarter of a century of being assured they changed my life and that if I wasn't off my face at Spike Island I basically betrayed my generation, I like Fools Gold
but the rest seems like jingly toss. They basically ruined the final series of This Is England
, so fuck them and their ugly trousers.
* I know this was because of their record company problems, but the Chart Show sometimes played what looked like the same video two or three times per show
