I am so ashamed at myself for not remembering to post this one. Thanks to 1up2dn for the mental prod.

a few years back still sounding great...
Great vid... thanks for posting that one up.
I really liked the sound quality... and the drums, especially the snare, sound great to me. (Hope it wasn't all triggered sounds???)

What did you listen to in the 80s' that makes these guilty pleasures? These are good songs, even in the 80's.
At this point I'm just posting anything I like from that era. I just wanted people to post some silly ones to get the party started. Cheers!

Since you posted a Madness song, How about that pitch bend tuned floor tom in this song. "Our house (BOOOOM) in the middle of our"
I've always thought that they got lucky in the studio that day.

Are you sure it's a pitch bend? I think i can do that with my 16" Gretsch floor tom. Thing sounds like a bottomless pit when tuned low (IE a 1/2 turn past finger tight). I love Madness...Led me to Fishbone. I love me some Fishbone

Saw these guys at the Agora Ballroom in Columbus Ohio back in the early 80s. That door was on the stage.
The opening band was Ronald Koal and the Trillionaires from Columbus.
Cool to see Wall of Voodoo in such a small setting. I really like the opening band a lot.

I'm not embarrassed to listen to Siouxsie, she is insanely talented...but as a hard rock/prog guy I am not supposed to be seen in public supporting anything to do with punk/goth, and usually I HATE most punk in general. Can't even stand the Ramones or the Sex Pistols.
