    Scaring me that we are musically alike!!!!
    You certainly have a varied taste JD. I'm afraid I'm a bit blinkered, 1977 and all that, although I do really like The Stranglers, not really a punk band, pre 1980 only though. Just out of interest, was your cat named in honour of Cobain, Nogan or both? Back in the 80s I had a cat called Atkins, it wasn't very skilful though.

      Not as well known as the one's posted so far but the lyrics are pretty powerful. I dont know how to embed a YouTube clip but the link to the video is there if you fancy a listen.

      David Ford - State of the Union



      Sweet dreams all met with derision
      This train, it was armed for collision
      It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
      Clap your hands in the sparkle and glitter
      Shake your heads at the twisted and bitter
      Oh they don't know how lucky they are
      Foot down for the alienation
      Look on as your love, its gets lost in translation
      To a language that nobody understands
      There are smiles as they erode and corrupt you
      Of the great expectations you could never live up to
      We are lost, we are lost, we are lost
      Get you coat, 'cause the righteous are leaving
      Cause they can't work out what the hell to believe in
      It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
      No abandon, no heartfelt desire
      No love could be worth getting fired
      For real, it's surreal, it's so real
      So paint over the cracks and then cover
      What you thought was the worst ever pain with another
      And the first one, it always comes free
      How they love you so cold and so vicious
      With friends like these, well who needs politicians
      The first one, its always comes free
      They tell you heroin takes like ice cream
      Clever men know all that and all this
      And they will talk and they talk and the don't fucking listen
      It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
      It's no life but God, it's a living
      Come on Jesus Christ, come back all is forgiven
      We are lost, we are lost, we are lost
      Have no fear of the state of the nation
      Let the facts have no bearing on public relations
      It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
      What a model of Christian behavior
      Preach on with the message of "go fuck thy neighbor"
      It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
      It's a shame, it's a shame
      Watch your step by the crowd of fanatics
      While they kill in the name of applied mathematics
      Hate the system even though you invented it
      Go kill your brothers and claim self defense of it
      Picking up all the secrets and tricks to being
      One of the guys whom the shit never sticks to
      Take you seats for the final calamity
      Don't you look serious, hell, what can the matter be?
      Another day and the rot's getting faster
      And all the machines started killing the master
      It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
      It's a shame, it's a shame

        Kurt was named in honour of both the great men. Got the name and tribute to Kurt (cat) tattooed on my left forearm. If I had a pound for every time people asked if it is for Kurt Cobain...

        As for Nogan, I could tell you a story or two about him as one of his best mates is a mate of mine!

        Nogan, btw, knew of Kurts existence. Sadly, I never sorted out a photo opportunity.

                Aye, still there. 18 years man and boy. I've just got a B7 so better hours and no weekends.

                I've heard about your latest career diversion, a million miles away from what you're doing now. It sounds like it's going to be brilliant adventure when you are in a position to take it up full time.

                    Arctic Monkeys - Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.

                    First listen - the fuck is this?
                    Second listen - ah, it's not as bad as I first thought.
                    Third listen - what a great album!

                            I love this island but this island's killing me
                            Sitting here in silence, man, I don't get no peace
                            The waves upon my shore take me away piece by piece
                            Gonna leave everything I know gonna head out towards the sea
                            Jump off this island gonna head out towards the sea

                            I love this city man, but this city's killing me
                            Sitting here in all this noise man, I don't get no peace
                            The cars below my street take me away piece by piece
                            Gonna leave everything I know gonna head out towards the sea
                            Gonna leave this city man, gonna head out towards the sea

                            Get miles away, get miles away
                            Get miles away, get miles

                            I love this planet but this planet's killin' me
                            Sitting here in all this grass man I don't get no weed
                            The sweat comin' from my pores take me away piece by piece
                            Gonna leave everything I know gonna head to the Galaxy
                            Gonna leave this planet man, gonna head to the Galaxy

                            Get miles away, get miles away
                            Get miles away, get miles away
                            Get miles away, get miles away

                              you call out
                              and the waves begin to rise
                              i'm hung out

                              in the ropes of all your lies

                              would you leave me here to drown
                              would you sacrifice your crown

                              a tempest
                              and the sky is turning black
                              a spell cast
                              that can't be taken back

                              will you leave me here to drown
                              will you sacrifice your crown
                              as the black sea drags me down
                              would you leave me here to drown

                              when you turn from the sea
                              i'll be watching you from the waves
                              every kiss will be laced with the salt from our empty grave
                              the storms that i'll send you
                              will haunt you 'til your dying day
                              and i will be there when they drown
                              from there always

                                It's pretentious. Sounds like David Bowie Young Americans but rather than "coked "up "pissed up"without any choruses whatsoever. Be fun live.
