That's the spirit!
winding-up?! scarasm!?! and piss-taking? on the urban75 message boards? well... i never!
that does it then. i'm leaving!
<footsteps. door slams. and the clocks strike 13.>
My work here is done.
Dizzee rascal ????????? Why do this to yourself
aphex , ill have to agree with you there but the rest is gash.
ill call you a taxi
Muse... good? PWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Can play some mean power chords, and they give off a lot of stage prescence. But good.... *snicker*.
santa - seeing how all you like is led 'cock-rock' zepplin - why dont you go fuck off?
explosions in the sky are just a diluted version sigur ros, gybe, a silver mount zion, et al.
fans are more often than not pseudo-intellectual pretentious wankers, and other floor gazers.
I of course am not one of these fans. I'm just a right arrogant cunt of a man
I hope jimmy page pummels you a new arsehole.
i thought he died?
anyway never said that. They are one of many "cock rock" bands on my radar. my musical tastes are more diverse that you could ever hope to be. That goes for music i make, and music i listen to.
<puts dirtysanta on the back>
you win a cookie.
but what bands/acts exactly do you listen to? do tell...
*god. i am so fucking bored of selling my labour for capital. who needs food/clothes/housing anyway? answers on a postcard to: I AM BORED.
I just read the list
it's not too bad as these things go - we are talking Channel 4, the British music buying public on a dull weekend in April.
I don't know what people expect really.
Just to add to some of the arguments - I love Radiohead's music. I don't understand the "miserable" label they get - I find a lot of it very witty and funny. Or the comparison to that overblown humourless shite Pink Floyd.
But I don't like, or agree with on much else, most of the other people I know who like Radiohead - maybe my ears are stuck on wrong and I'm hearing a different band.
And Akira is shaping up to be another Kaned and Unable - just wrong about nearly everything.
Wolfies got a point
I would actually walk down coldharbour lane in a crotchless gimp suit for all 100 cd's.
Crap albums feature high up a popularly-voted-for Top 100 shock!!
Not-the-best albums by good bands feature above their better ones shock!
Infuriatingly I can't right now activate the Channel 4 link to the full list for some unknown reason, or indeed access any other net page at all other than Urban 75 (will have to wait for techie-genius Stig to get home)
But, from memory of last night ...
Ignoring the chart positions, which I can do fuck all about, I was glad to see some classics there -- Blue Lines, Queen is Dead, Different Class, Exile on Main Street, Stone Roses, Mondays, Whats Going On, Screamadelica, Ziggy Stardust, London Calling (not their best but still bloody good!) ....
Others I liked but no doubt others won't -- Paranoid, Dark Side of the Moon (not their best -- Wish You Were Here was, but I always liked Floyd anyway ), Led Zep IV, Blood on the Tracks ... in other words lots of obvious stuff, buts hello, it's a chart and some of us like stuff that other people like as well as the obscure 'wouldn't trouble any top 600' stuff ...
No problem with OK Computer being No. 1 -- sooner that than U2 or some of the even blander stuff in the top reaches of that chart Dido, Coldplay BORING!!!!!! -- I've liked Radiohead for ages but I completely accept they're an acquired taste, love or hate them band.
No problem with Nirvana being in the top 5 (?) either even though I haven't got it
I know the presence of Beatles albums will piss off many, but I don't have any particular problem with White Album and Revolver featuring (I've gone off Sergeant Pepper much more).
Not enough reggae, not enough better, more intelligent hip hop (not really my genre, but it's more important than reflected in that chart), no Byrds is a scandal, Different Class should have been much higher.
Oasis are shit despite my deluded belief for about six months a decade or so ago that they weren't ....
I also agree that Super Furries not featuring is ridiculous -- I don't understand it ...
He has got a point.
However, I needed something to moan about and as usual, Channel Four have risen to the occasion splendidly.
Would it be exceptionally demanding of me if I asked someone to cut and paste the actual chart .... ??

whooops - Iam beat me to it
spot the difference
Right, didn't bothger watching the programme because I'd just disagree with them and what do you know? I do. I have 27 of them but what planet are we living on where fucking Coldplay made the 14th best album ever? Very little hip-hop in there apart from the usual rockist's choice of PE and De La. Where the fuck are the Wu and NWA? As I said, a very rockist selection, but what do I expect from viewers of a channel which think a disabled man who's not really disabled is the funniest comedy sketch ever?
..well if i must..cos your seem quite tearful today.. i dont normally do the list thing cos i i dont have a favourite out of my records, so you'll have to make do with whats in my cd changer in the motor today
Minnie Riperton - Anthology
Stone Roses - Second Coming
Rage Against the machine. - Battle of Los Angeles
Broken Family Band - Cold Water Songs
Beastie Boys - Pauls Boutique

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain
Fugazi - Repeater
>>Stavros and other angries
Why can't you just read the chart selectively though? I did, I accepted the limitations of a format like that -- I tried to ignore the shite as best I could, I tried to write off the bland pop as inevitable in a populist chart, I instructed myself to not get aereated when stuff I liked came less high in the rankings than stuff I didn't.
In fact I thought there was a very reasonable percentage of classics featuring, given the limitations ....
Cheers Iam and Wolfie for posting the full chart.
Glad that The Specials featured, I'd forgotten them.
On the same note it's a bit iffy to me that Madness didn't show, how popular were they for fuck sake? But I suppose they were much more a singles band.
Hounds of Love is a superb album
And I'm an old dated fart
90. MADNESS - One Step Beyond...
Madness did didn't they?
I was also amazed to see that Elvis Costello produced the Specials. I always thought he was a two bit cock, I'll have to reassess now. Nobs.
i think i need to eat more at work or something...
its does get pretty wearing taking on the whole of the old urban crew at the same time...
just buy some decent music, that'll help you to fit in.
he also produced the Pogues.
rum, sodomy and the lash i think that was
