Greetings Chownah,

chownah wrote:Can someone tell me....is this heavy metal or is it grunge?

I would say neither, but it's seemingly a precursor to bands like New York Dolls and the Velvet Underground.

Speaking of precursors... here's a man who in the 70s was formulating and perfecting the art of dub music in his studio in Jamaica. Dub music has since gone on to influence just about every modern genre of music there is today...

I'm going to be away for a few days, so it might be a little while until I get on with the Top 10.

Until then, here's one for bodom and mawkish, just in time for Halloween...

Yeah! Right on, Retro! I agree 100% with this pick of yours.

I'm surprised that you like Type O because you usually don't seem to like dark-sounding music.

Here are some other cool songs by them:

Way to go Retro. Your framing my teenage years with Eurasure and Joy Division/ New Order. So now I'm thinking that the following will be coming up: Pet Shop Boys, U2 (going to see them next May), Bob Marley and the Wailers should be there as well. I think I'm close on some of them.... or maybe not. :smile:
But if this neutral feeling that has arisen is conditioned by the body which is impermanent, compounded and dependently arisen, how could such a neutral feeling be permanent? - SN 36.7

Greetings,

Well, there have been rather obscure entries in the Retro Rockers Top 100 so I guess it was no surprise to see another come in at #3. Spray are magnificent though - it astounds me that they're not better known than they are.

Anyway, as for the countdown.... what I will tell you is that both remaining entries have had number 1 albums in the UK chart.

I wonder if that helps narrow it down at all...

:spy:
