***************************************************************************************************
Surely there has never been a more stupid group than lack of knowledge. What they saw as uncompromising, everyone else would have seen as just plain dumb. If there was any chance at all of sabotaging the furthering of a career, then they would find it. Sometimes it could be tough but mostly it was a piece of cake. Whatever sensible idea anyone outside the band could put forward, then the band simply took up the opposite stance. It worked a treat. Chorus’s in songs?; “why should we?”, release your catchiest tracks?; “we’re not your puppets!” , when you play live, why not try playing stuff you just released last week?; “i don’t think so” . No, instead we chose to have the guitarist, who can’t sing, to sing the title track off of the album. And then change the title of the song so it’s now not the title track. Genius.
