best song intro ever?
i love "Am I Evil" by Diamond Head also "The Riverbed" by Gallows.

alt: I have been invited to 10 weddings this year. Are you goimng to any? Do you want to go? Do you wear a morning coat or a lounge suit like pleb?

Altalt: if you see monty on a bike, will you run him over for the "lols"?

Is that Diamond Head one not just a rip off of Mars The Bringer of War from Holst's Planets?

(, Wed 7 Mar 2012, 14:04, Reply)
I have no idea, but DH have always been far superior songwriters to Holst
he never had any guitar solos

Your first assertion is incorrect.
I was going to try and disprove your second, but could only find videos of drippy looking hippies playing dreary versions of Jupiter on acoustic guitars.

Eloise by The Damned. Class band.
Also Space is Deep, by the Hawks.
Alt, 1 as far as I know, just trousers and a Hawaiian shirt.
I don't think he does bikes. Apart from the class one that is.

Good choices.
Although I think Assault and Battery/Golden Void is a superior HW intro, for 'personal reasons' ie strongest dose of acid I've ever had happy memories.

I saw a Gallows video once.
It was fucking pathetic. The premise of it was some kind of urban unrest/riot scene and the music was terrible. Faux-angry punk lite seeming performed by mincing woofters.

Also, Brian Tatler from Diamond Head is a tosser. A Midlands, Christian tosser at that. Like a kind of heavy metal Jasper Carrott. Diamond Head? Dick head, more like.

Hope this helps.

Tom Sawyer by Rush.
Shit song, terrible band - incredible intro.

Or 'Apache' by Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band. A masterpiece.

ALSO the intro to 'Films' by Gary Numan is fucking brilliant. So is Steve Miller's 'Take the Money and Run', also 'Fly Like an Eagle'. He's good at the old intros, is our Stevie.

that the intro becomes far less incredible if the same 15 second loop of it is played over and over again for about ten minutes.

Here's something I wrote about that previously -
"Their music is poorly written, their lyrics could have come from a 12 year old's journal who is rebelling against homework, and I think it's high time they grew up, and stopped protesting.

Plus, singing "Fuck you I won't do what you tell me" on a live radio show when you're nearly 40 is neither big, nor clever, you fucking helmet."

Then you said to me you said, this is the RHCP and I love them, they are the best band I have ever heard. Then you said something unintelligible that sounded like "skin up" and then you said "We Care Alot" was the finest intro you had come across in your many years of listening to music. Then you put on "Running in the family" which you said and I quote "awesome" and as I was leaving I thought I heard you say something about a rat in your kitchen.
