The Police were punkier in England before they were famous, then they "sold out" after dyeing their hair blond for a bubblegum commercial.

Julianna Hatfield announced on Sheilas show that she's working on an album of Police covers.

The Brimstones frontman is now singing for the reunited NJ stoner-metal band Solace, who just finished a new album and will play at the Descendants of Crom festival in Pittsburgh this September.

“Emotional Rescue” underrated Stones album. Nothing better than “She’s So Cold”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm
tim from champaign:

I was not familiar with this song until I heard the New Bomb Turks cover. My Stones albums stopped at It's Only Rock'n'Roll. I've since been creeping up the Stones 70s.

tim from champaign:

@Phillippe - yes! Anchorage is actually very cool. For food I'd recommend Snow City Cafe for breakfasts, Pho Lena (the best veggie pho I've ever had), Moose Tooth Pizza and Pub, and Orso for dinner. The Anchorage Museum was quite good with a progressive look at Alaska's history plus great Native art. The great outdoors is spectacular in Alaska so you can't go wrong anywhere.

I've never heard "Crawling Up a Hill" before. Am I correct in surmising that Count Yates' "Chimpanzee" is plagiarized from that?
