I Stand Corrected


The other day I played The Boomtown Rats primarily because of their close alphabetical proximity to Bowie on the vinyl shelves. As you can imagine that area of the shelves has seen fairly heavy traffic in recent days.
At the time I stated that it could have been worse as it could have been The Blow Monkeys. I was gently taken to task by Drew and more forcefully by Echorich. Mrs CC also got in on the act given that the three Blow Monkeys records on the shelves belong to her.

Having given them a listen I have to admit that I was wrong there. These two songs are far better than the two featured Boomtown Rats numbers previously offered

The Blow Monkeys - Digging Your Scene

The Blow Monkeys - It Doesn't Have To Be This Way

  4. FFS I start playing that 2nd tune, and think "I know this, it's crap" then my wife starts dancing to it. Don't think I'll bother with the first one. So I go back to your Boomtown Rats tunes.....they both get a 30second airing. To sum up, both the Boomtown Rats AND the Blow Monkeys are not very good!
