"The Spaghetti Incident?"

Set lists and a little bit of Rock

Friday, 10 March 2006

So The Who. I just discovered them proper. What a fucking good band and why the fuck has no one told me this before? Sure I already knew all the big hits. I watch CSI after all... (wogga wogga wooga!) I got my hands on a Best Of. C'est chock block full of ass kicking rock stonkers!

Big rock chords, acoustic strumming, great vocals lead and backing and the occasional banjo solo made for some wicked rock. If the Beatles wanted to hold your hand and the Stones wanted burn your town - I wonder what the Who got up to?

I'm loving the lyrics of 'Substitute'

'I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my town faced east, and the east was facing south'

I just like nonsense like that so I'll get on the magic bus but I'm having trouble working out who this Tommy fellow is. Was he like an early memnber of the band or something?
