I've never actually heard NY Dolls, but as a teenage Smiths fan (Morrisey was always saying they were his favourite ever band) I'll have to check them out soon.

Didn't they do one album and then get drugged out or something?

Huh huh! Drugged out sounds so immature: like as soon as you sniff an illiegal substance you are fucked!

But as 70's band go I have a fondness for Steely Dan, Velvet Underground (started in 60's, I know) and a bit of Television. Loads of great music made in the 70's.

I was born in late-75, so would've been virtually embryonic when most of this stuff was made.

Recently mostly listening to The Hold Steady, Fleet Foxes, Bright Eyes, The National and the second Raconteurs album.

I like the Hold Steady song that was on the radio man. It's seems aiming for trad, but a breath of fresh air. I've got the Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver albums from last year too. Fleet Foxes' Mykonos is all over the major radio stations at the moment: from Radio 1 to BBC 6 but it's a nice song, you can't help but like it.

Heh, I quite liked that Lady Ga-Ga song a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was a bit of catchy pop-fluff, but it's been played so much I'm now sick of it after only two weeks. Ha ha!

Yes, the first album was very successful but then they enter a spiral of drinking and band inter-fights so soon after they split. :(

Watched a film earlier on yesterday called Clubbed, funnily enough about some guys that ran a 70's nightclub :lol: , not a bad film but a great soundtrack in the background of old disco stuff.

The 710 nagging me to do some jobs. :bash::argue::nono:

Take some advice from an old pro, go out for a paper later, via the boozer for a few hours, that usually works :lol: :lol: :lol:

Rockferry by Duffy is my fave at the min. An album I bought on a whim but all the tracks are great. Nice surprise.

Unlike the Robert Plant / Alison Krauss album I had such high expectations of but which wouldn't be out of place in a funeral parlour :(
