    Ohhh....Stanley Stanley!

    ĄI believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialismď

    Hardly scientific but my eldest (15 YO) absolutely loves Oasis and is bored shitless of me telling her of seeing them before they were big.

    Ah, but did you have to pay a booking fee for the tickets?

    Yes, 50p, ticket was £5.50 from memory and I paid £6. Still have the ticket at home somewhere.

    Rambo's point about a kid somewhere in the world will hear Wonderwall is beautiful, if I ever met NG I think I wouldn't be able to say anything apart from thank you, or various reasons that Oasis gig and the music changed my life completely.

    One band springs to mind for me, Jamiroquai, fucking breaks me every time I hear anything of his. Partly because he comes across as a cock & mainly because he's shite.

    Shout outs for Bruno Mars & Ed Sheeran too, the formers voice goes through me & the latter is a ginger **** who gets everywhere.

    As for songs, its Uptown funk. Ive heard it in various different forms & despised every one.

    I love queen but really donít enjoy listening to some of their big hits. Maybe because there are far better songs that arenít played and havenít been overplayed. Bohemian rhapsody, I want to break free, radio gaga etc... I would always skip but dig deeper and queen are / were phenomenal.

    The Trent End was pretty creative in the '60s for turning songs from the Hit Parade into terrace chants Ravi. They were usually adapted to salute individual players, The Small Faces, Shalalalalee (Terry Hennessey); The Troggs, I Want You (Barry Lyons); Keith West, Grocer Jack (Joe Baker) being examples that immediately spring to mind.

     What I do (or did) enjoy doing was butchering covers & splicing songs together to keep it fresh & different.

    Trouble is way too many musos are shit scared of it. I always wanted to do a few punk versions of some Oasis songs, I'd have been happy with that. Punky Supersonic would be mint

    We did a battle of the bands once where everyone got three songs, but one of them had to be Purple Rain. We tried for a couple of weeks to write some kind of interesting reinvention on the original like a punk run through or something but, honestly, to me it's one of the most mega-gash songs ever written - no idea why people go so mad for it - and we couldn't come up with anything.

    In the end we did three of our own songs and they pulled the plug on us halfway through the last. We smashed the gaff up and chuffed off out of there. What we didn't think of at the time was that on all the entry forms you had to put an address, phone number etc, so the beak showed up at the drummer's house early next morning and arrested him for criminal damage. In the end, we bought the aggrieved party a new amp and let his band support us on our residency gig for a month, so no harm done. way fucking better to be 23 than 38, though. Take me back.

    One of my mates come up with the idea of ‘Leo Slayer’ which was basically covering Leo Sayer songs in the style of Slayer.
    I tried reworking a load of his hits, hardly any of them would work, no matter what you did with them even adding a tritone here and there they just sounded lame.
    The only one that was good was ‘Thunder in my heart’.

    The Troggs proved to be quite a popular source Rocka, do you also remember Give It To Me being adapted to Give It To Moore?

    I sure do Otis.

    On a side note I've seen the Troggs nearly a dozen times live. I wasn't a big fan of theirs at first, until I was convinced to go and see them perform live. Reg Presley (real name Reg Ball) is a good front man live on stage.

    sad thing is not many (if any) of today's pop tune inspire decent terrace chants like back in the day.

    The "F**k Off Peter Reid" song to the tune of Daydream Believer was a classic.

    Dancing in the moonlight by Toploader. I won't post the video because I hated that fucking song and I still do. It seemed to be popular for years with its repetitive lyrics going round and round and round. It was utter shite dumbed down crap appealing to the masses. And I may not have mentioned this before, I hate keyboards.
