Feel like I’m repeating myself, but Sabbath are the second most influential band this country has produced.

 

Not given anywhere near the credit they deserve, probably through snobbery, or the wilderness years, but massively under appreciated.

The Brummy masters of Doom vs Simple fucking Minds?

 

No contest, Sabbath all the way.

I really liked Simple Minds when I was in my mid-teens, then they turned into a sort of U2-lite tribute act and completely disappeared up their own arses, presumably chasing the US mainstream. After New Gold Dream and Sparkle in the Rain, Once Upon a Time was a big disappointment and Street Fighting Years was pure shite. I saw them at Wembley in '89 as a friend was still big into them, and was bored shitless.

I’m sure plenty will select Black Sabbath here but it’s Simple Minds for me. 

Same here. I could name maybe two Sabbath songs - and one of them I think is poo.

These are very odd pairings.

It was all done randomly mate. I'm not sat here selecting ties.

So a Commie and a philistine*, hey?

 

*I know you're not a philistine due to the excellent SS CD you sent me about ten years back!

Decent group vs one of the most influential rock bands this country has ever produced? Not really a fair contest.

Dexys are a lot better than some of the shite in the 64 & I'm not really a fan of theirs.

Mel & Kim are better than some of the bands included in the 64.
