Re: Your last listen

I've got the 'Better Scream' 7" and may have both 'Spiral Scratch' and 'Seven Minutes To Midnight' somewhere. There are still copies floating around on Discogs. Apart from a few obvious tunes Pete Wylie's music doesn't so much float my boat as sink it :( Beauty as always is in the ears of the ...

Replacement band was The Chameleons. They were great.
That to me is a result - I loved The Chameleons, saw them a few times in London.

Came close to cancellations a few times with the Pogues, many times we saw him absolutely tonto'd in a nearby bar, and one time at Brixton he had to be 'helped' to the artists entrance. Somehow however he put in some blistering performances despite being rat arsed.
