I don't think *ANYONE* considers AURAL SCULPTURE a "classic". A fine record, yes, but no classic. Their last good record, maybe, but no classic.

The Damned are untouchably great, and anyone who slags them off should beware of flying pints of jumper-soaking beer.

Of course, none of these bands would matter or even exist without the Ramones, as we all agree.

is great about Aural Sculpture but it is seen as a classic. Awful
eighties production and some poor songs. That's when Cornwell should
have left.<br>
As for the Damned. They're bloody great! You're in danger of starting
off "that" discussion again Greg. Just don't mention the R*m*nes.

so great about the Strangler's "Aural Sculpture"? It just sounds like
lame synth-pop to me. It's such a change from their early stuff like
"Nobody's Heroes". That group (like the Damned, another band I think is
overrated)&nbsp;was never too popular in the US.&nbsp;</font></div><font style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;" size="2">&nbsp;<br>-----Original Message-----<br>From: gingoblin at easynet.co.uk<br>To: A list about all things Killing Joke (the band!) &lt;gathering at misera.net&gt;<br>Sent: Thu, 24 Mar 2005 17:33:22 +0000<br>Subject: Re: [kj] Meninblack<br><br>  </font><div class="AOLPlainTextBody" id="AOLMsgPart_0_bd23d481-4fc3-4ac0-921b-8c42320c1bb4"><font style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;" size="2">At 17:27 24/03/2005 +0000, Graeme Rowland&nbsp;<br>&nbsp;wrote:&nbsp;<br>&gt; &gt; The Stranglers - Meninblack Has its&nbsp;<br>&gt; &gt; moments, but not their&nbsp;<br>&gt; &gt; best.
