…Martha and the Muffins

Give me one track to follow from that era, or one track to follow the most recently posted, for a playlist. 

Echo Beach really is a stonker.

Some of the cover art was based on Chesil Beach.

It was far away in time, obviously.

Thing is with Squeeze, on hearing one song I just want to play their greatest hits!  Good shout though.

All fantastic suggestions ! I've got 'em all on my phone right this minute 😀 (Gonna listen as soon as I finish typing)

How about adding Peter Gabriel's 'Solisbury Hill' to the mix?

Or something by the Clash? Or the Ruts?

Can I be bold and suggest: Famous Blue Raincoat / Jennifer Warnes; Broken Glass / Hazel O'Connor; perhaps something by Public Enemy? Classic songs either deeply melancholic, or shouty rants about society's ills. 🙂

Happy Sunday to all !

Session version of this playing on 6music as I read this thread!

Something from Ian Dury, but which ? Maybe "Reasons to be cheerful"

In reply to Bottom Clinger:

How about Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, e.g. Fire Lake?

I got invisible sun by the police stuck in my head for a few weeks and was not disappointed. Amazing track. 

In reply to Bottom Clinger:

Indeed. Saw Toyah in Hudderfield last year, she opened with that one.

Killing Joke - 80s

Oh yes - I'll open with Tommy Gun, Guns of Brixton, and Working for the Clampdown.

Ruts - I guess Babylon's Burning or H Eyes

One track, Magazine - Shot by Both Sides.

In reply to Bottom Clinger:

From the same year of 1979, a proper dancefloor filler...

Could take any of The Cure’s first three singles of that year so I’ll go for Jumping Someone Else’s Train (and the last track the original bassist was in before a change in line up and they briefly became a 4 piece)

In reply to ripper: Hah, the mighty Spear of Destiny!

l once entered and won a competition to meet the band after a gig in Edinburgh.I didn't bother, think I was about 30yo at the time.

I remember Liberator being a popular floor-filler at the Kibbutz club in Halifax in the mid 80s (took Mrs Ripper there on our first date!)

In reply to ripper:

Saw predecessors to SoD, Theatre of Hate in some dodgy Manc cellar club way back 

Didn't Spear of Destiny form from the remnants of Theatre of Hate and Ian Astbury's Southern Death Cult/Alien Sex Fiend?

Good times!

 ripper 08 May 2022
In reply to Sherlock:

Not sure about that, but I remember seeing Southern Death Cult once, maybe at Deeside Leisure Centre on the Futurama weekender?

Also remember seeing Mark Riley and the Creepers at Hebden Trades Club, we chatted to Riley in the bogs during his set break, my mate was wearing an Alien Sex Fiend t-shirt, and when they went back on stage kicked off the first number with "this one's for the alien sex fiend in the toilets".

In reply to Bottom Clinger:

Randomly, a guy in a petrol station off the A9 recommended this to me when I was driving up to Torridon last summer. I think I was buying a muffin with my coffee. Anyway - yes, an absolute stonker! Had never heard (of) it before, but was grateful to the bloke for the suggestion.

In reply to Bottom Clinger:

Just get the album ‘Sound of the Suburbs’.  One of my favourite compilation albums ever - Echo Beach is on it, along with many great songs from that era.

Almost four full days and nobody has gone properly off topic so here is one from 1994, if people like Echo Beach and The Go-Betweens (and Warren Ellis playing a violin), this should go down well. From Robert Forster's covers album.
