sister paul goes in on bay city rollers

l0u1s j0rdan (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 30 April 2012 22:37 (1 year ago) Permalink

otm:

Sister Paul comprise a male bassist singing in soprano and a female drummer in alto. They sing all songs together playing the each instrument in the heavy groove. The words written by Susumu have a queer and unstable feeling. In spite of the sound they make is full of decadance, violence and insanity, some audiences laugh, others shed tears surrounding all happy atomosphere in the end.

lol, i figured that i want a new drug would take it, for whatever reason, but maybe that one doesn't mean much to UK folks. it's certainly more "hard edged" than don't dream it's over, an honorable victor.

of the runners-up, i'm sort of surprised that jeopardy came in above the likes of of human and chains of love, but it's only by one vote, so fair play.

i voted for Kihn but in retrospect i would've voted for Escape Club because those guys seem the least likely to have even heard a punk band

We didn't discuss "Don't Dream It's Over" enough -- one of my unfuckwithable jams. Love everything about it.

i always figured that jeopardy was about as punk as some girls, which is to say kinda

tbh i probably know the weird al version of "jeopardy" better than the original, it was just kind of a kneejerk vote

Neil Young’s social media channels (some dude), Thursday, 3 May 2012 01:09 (1 year ago) Permalink

I didn't vote in this--love the commercial--but, as a couple of people suggested, the answer is so obviously Quarterflash to me. Not that I hate "Harden My Heart"--there's a song on their first LP, "Love Should Be So Kind," I like a lot--but some of these are attached to punk by a thread one millimeter thick, either via the song or the artist's family tree or the way they were marketed, and some are attached by a thread three millimeters thick, but Quarterflash has no connection whatsoever that I can see. I guess the idea of hardening your heart is a punk sentiment, but I'm not sure it's worth a distant finish behind bands with clear new wave affiliations.

mr. narrator, quarterflash is pat benatar to me, so sort of weirdly punk by association

I noticed the resemblance to Pat Benatar too when I looked at the video. Mind you, Justin Bieber sometimes looks like Darby Crash to me.

I could see that actually.

i'm thinking that westwood promotions put this out via warner/time-life or warner special products, but discogs' warner special products entry doesn't mention it.

get wolves (get bent), Friday, 4 May 2012 05:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, you can see the Warner "W" logo on the cds in the commercial. It's become my mission to find a real world copy of this fucker.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 4 May 2012 05:58 (1 year ago) Permalink

^ saw that, but then decided it was maybe just a warner-like westwood logo, dunno

I don't know, that is way more 90s than PUNK is punk

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Friday, 4 May 2012 14:33 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah but it's like three or four no-brainers buffering a whole lot of pretty counterintuitive picks

some dude, Friday, 4 May 2012 14:38 (1 year ago) Permalink

that's three or four more than the PUNK compilation has!

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Friday, 4 May 2012 14:39 (1 year ago) Permalink

I guess the idea of hardening your heart is a punk sentiment, but I'm not sure it's worth a distant finish behind bands with clear new wave affiliations.

at a guess, Quarterflash may have lost votes by being the only one on this list to be completely unknown in Europe?

that 90s comp looks like it came free with 10 purchases of a soft drink in early 1994, so I guess it is pretty 90s
