Fields Of Fire

I have been becoming very distressed lately at the number of videos being taken down on Youtube. Makes me wonder if I should find some other place to find my videos, but then I wouldn't find crazy fan videos. Besides Big Country will never let me down, they won't take their videos offline and leave me with more broken links, Big Country loves me!

Additionally, I've been wondering what it would be like to go back and grow up a British kid. Other than paying a lot more in taxes, would I have found as many awesome American bands that I've never would have heard of? Or in Great Britain do they get all the awesome UK music and all the awesome American Music? I guess once I invent my time machine I will find out.



It was a field day for them

The 80's were a field day for the Brits...the one hit wonder bands, etc.

As it regards Big Country, they are tremendous, very much in the same vein as The Alarm, Billy Bragg and the like.

Speakin of Mr. Bragg (I'd have his baby if he asked me), I read he's doing Strummercamp (for one of the true Kings of rock, Joe Strummer)in May. Also read that some others performing are The Alarm and The Damned.

Anybody wanna road trip across the pond?

Here's a great one from Billy Bragg when he appeared on Ferguson, the only reason to watch TV after Letterman:

P.S. Also note the legendary keyboardist who played with Ian Dury, the Stones,and many other fine institutions, Mr. Ian McLagan.

great line

"The revolution is only an epical haircut away while we're waitin' for the great leap forwards."

I'm ovulating, Mr. Bragg.

Ferguson

Man you really are a Ferguson junkie aren't you?

Don't you think that's a bit strong?

Don't get saucy with me, Bernaise.
