Perhaps I'm too harsh, perhaps they really want to do "their bit", but I'm afraid this may have been motivated more by 'limelight opportunity' than charity.
Yes, I agree. It could be a tool for boosting their profile.

Re: Damon on Band Aid 30:

Yes, I think I am getting old as well :( ;) The original Band Aid/Live Aid was a great phenomenon, and quite original at the time. But I think that while it did a lot for famine awareness, it also did a lot for the music industry. They used it as a huge promotional tool. It was the catalyst for the ...

Re: The Kinks Thread

Obviously The Kinks were an influence on Blur. But the lyrics of The Kinks tended to be more starkly descriptive of their subject, in '60s British kitchen sink' way.

Blur lyrics (as per a lot of Britpop) were more 'dreamy', and harder to decipher what 'message' was being conveyed.

Re: Underrated Music

The Troggs - had a good run of hit singles, no better or worse than their contemporaries. And 'Wild Thing' of course was adopted by Mr. Hendrix, whilst Wet Wet Wet's take on 'Love Is All Around', whilst insipid, emphasised the good songwriting, and gave Reg Presley the credibility and royalties he d...

Re: The Jimi Hendrix Thread

His death was put down to 'drugs' in 1970. It could be portrayed like this to contemporary adults, a large majority of whom were of the wartime generations. If they had heard of him, they wouldn't necessarily like him. The newsreader mentions that he was only really known to those 'under 30'. So he ...

Re: Mansun

:D Wishing you every success with this. It will be an aspect of 'Britpop' that might not otherwise be told.

And, yes, I am happy for you to use the concert ticket scan, which will embellish the detail. :)

Re: The Fleetwood Mac Thread

They were obviously capable of good music at that time. But the personal difficulties being encountered mean that it is a less revered period.
