I had never seen this before
Posts Tagged: The Stranglers
but plenty of memories of these past three years
you feel lucky when there is one that pops up
I saw a few legends
a swagger which looks so authentic that they could have invented the term
another intense day
Wavves are at The Lodge Room on Friday & Saturday
SECOND STAGE ADDED TO FESTIVAL SITE
Sajak’s penultimate song last night was a cover of The Stranglers epic self portrait “(Get A) Grip (On Yourself)”, one of the tastiest licks you’ll hear. Meanwhile, Dawes fans are upset I gave their new album a “B”…. they don’t seem to understand how I can like the playing and the lyric but think the songs didn’t make it.
This is a perfect song, it starts with the chorus, and those waah waah waahs, and then Bowie plays between his falsetto and baritone, and he throws in handclaps and drum machines and back up singers. And the lyric is as brilliant and overwhelmingly baroque and also dramatic lyric, plus a rap: “one of these days and it won’t be long… ” that bit off an album so great he reached a zenith of artistry and paranoia never to be touched again.
