What was the ex-FF band?

I think you fail to see the new twist to the old style.  And you
connect these questions of style back to the way it was done in
previously.  In other words, you are indeed becoming your parents.

None of our favorite bands grew up on deserted islands and came up
with their sound in a relative vacuum.  Killing Joke, while original
to this day, also point back to their own influences, and recently
have built on the advances of their followers to good effect.  Joy
Division was a variation on heavy metal and punk.  They sound just
like Iggy & the Stooges, don't they?  And they were just a rock band
anyway if you get right down to it.
