...ever be classified as unknown, obscure, or fallen though the cracks? and not by douche bags and your mom, but by people who actually know a thing or two. i got into an argument today, probably with someone who didn't know them themselves, and then they got selfconscious.

green day was compared to slf in hi-fidelity. but even before that movie i can't imagine they'd be looked over.

so no.

that's what i said. this guy is obviously off his nut.

A good reason to hate that movie. Green Day sound more like the Buzzcocks than S.L.F.

and plenty of people that like that type of music ( i.e. The Clash etc.- and don't give me any of that they aren't the Irish Clash- i know they aren't- just saying that they are close to that neighborhood musicwise more than anything) don't know S.L.F.-a shame.

some line up changes over the years including Bass player for the Jam for a bit, but new stuff is still pretty good - "I believe in the power of guitar and drum." great song.

Calling the SLF the "Irish Clash" is no insult....any band should be proud to be compared to them....that first album, Infammable Materia,l is amazing...

The Clash were horrible. SLF is OK, not a big fan of this kinda stuff.

I always thought SLF were okay. I saw them live a few years ago with the bass player for The Jam. The songs sounded competent but they were incredibly dull! Actually made me less of a fan.

I like both OK but would take the Ruts over either. Just me, tho.

Inflammable Material is a good record.

Stiff Little Fingers are not obscure by any means. Tell your friend to eat a dead possum.

Lemme guess, the only first wave UK punk record you like is Damned Damned Damned.

The Ruts have some moments but they aren't quite Clash/SLF level.

I can see right through you guys. Trust me, I'd trade this talent/curse for a pack of bubblegum and a finger in the eye.

that can be arranged!

You gotta wash your hands first.

I have a Damned live record with them doing a rad version of The Ruts "In a Rut".

sing sus-sus-sus-sus-sus-sus-suspect device at him and he'll probably wake up. if not, then you'll know he's off his nut.

not a fan.

I like Eater. & the Rezillos. & Wire. & Swell Maps. The Damned are good, but I'm not a huge fan. The Clash make my skin crawl.

Infidel. London Calling is the best double album ever made, right ahead of Zen Arcade and Double Nickels on the Dime.

way behind those two; love the second, love the EP, loved them live, but i'd take swell maps, buzzcocks, damned damned damned, wire, adverts, saints, x ray specs, rainbows, over london calling

i'd take a greased naked bradx on all fours with a dog collar around his neck and a leash, and a man's arm holding onto the leash, pushing michael vick's big black dick into his face for him to sniff over fucking london's calling. which of course leads us into their next album, the triple disaster, rape standinista...

those mush-mouthed bastards shoulda been doused, electrocuted, hung, drowned and shot after that fucking mess!

But then we wouldn't have Cut The Crap, or Big Audio Dynamite...


(but seriously, I fuckin' love the clash)

Hey I never said Sandinista was any good.

We must establish a hierarchy of Brit punk bands. C'mon people, I want a rough outline on my desk by tomorrow morning....

Users!

Somehow forgot about the Buzzcocks. Early singles (going steady) are a bit overrated, "Spiral Scratch" and more progressive stuff (like Tension) are underrated.

we mean it, maaaan

...or Havana 3AM or Ellen Foley as "Billy" on Night Court...
