Went to see Suede in Nottingham last night. Absolutely fantastic. Shame how they never really got that far compared to other bands at that time.

I like them. I like a lot of their music, but I went down last night more out of interest than expectation. I was blown away. Anderson just brings so much energy.

If I rated all the bands I've seen, I'd put U2/Coldplay joint top on 10/10 (no surprises there!) and Stereophonics bottom on a 5 (nothing bad. Just didn't get me going). Suede can have a 9. Hope they do a proper tour!

Damn! I get so confuddled with how many nominations/votes we are allowed!

My nominations are fine as you posted Leon. Thanks :tup:

PS - why do we get more votes than nominations? Just wondering like.

:tup: to all of those - I just felt not as consistent as the albums I mentioned. I just started buying my own stuff about 1975 and was probably well into my stride by 1978 of knowing what I really liked.

BTW I was watching the DVD of Live and Dangerous the other night - Phil was a great showman and what a band - I felt - and feel - so privileged to have seen them on home turf numerous times - with Gallagher - some of the best shows ever.

spanner in the works now but it's a perfect 10 and I hope it passes scrutiny

1 Hope and Anchor front row festival. - Various..Will only get points from me as I doubt anyone else owns it..or ever will but it encapsulates the moment perfectly and has the definitive version of the Stranglers performing Hanging Around

2 Watch - Manfred Manns Earth Band..my favorite PROG album bar none

3 Some Enchanted Evening - As the only BOC fan here I feel I must include the album which delivers the best version of Astronomy ever laid down on Vinyl...

Loved Lizzy around the time but unfortunately probably the worst top rated live band I've ever seen, not so much the band as Lynott, suppose that's what you get with artists the likes of him, they're either brilliant or rubbish, all or nothing. It wasn't that he didn't seem interested , it was just the voice was awful, a real big disappointment.
It will all come clear in the end

1. I was a regular at the Hope, so possibly I saw that gig...time muddies memories, especially in that era. Saw the Strangles a good few times tho. I remember the band and audience getting naked at a gig, sometime late 70's, in London.

2. Grief! Manfred Mann lost it after their version of "The Mighty Quinn". for me. 5-4-3-2-1 and "Doo Wah Diddy" were classic pop hits though! Still love them today :tup:

3. BOC huh? Don't Fear the Reaper is a forever classic for that sublimely wonderful riff. Wonderful song 8-)

You aren't alone, mate. On Your Feet Or On Your Knees is one of my top live albums ever, the original album version of Last Days of May as sublime a piece of music as I've heard and Agents of Fortune with a wonderful contribution from Patti Smith still gets an outing.

I saw a few gigs at the H&A, the stranglers wasn't one of them, in fact none of the gigs on that album were...I was 15/16 when most were recorded..I started going with my older cousin, who was a roadie back then, from about 79

watch features The mighty Quinn so we're good there....Don't fear the reaper like stairway to heaven is a great track but familiarity breeds contempt...the only version worth listening to is on the above album

agreed OYFOOYK is a better album, The Subhuman. Harvester of Eyes (great opening riff on that) and of course you're right Then came the last days of May is the crowing glory
