I been thinking about songs by seminal UK punk group “Chelsea” Probably won’t go over well here, you have to have your ears sharpened, or blunted, or whatever to like this stuff, but I have an appreciation for it. I was thinking about some of these old songs, so I just looked a few up to share here.
I don’t know what half the lyrics are, or what the songs are about, can’t find the lyrics online, cos they’re too obscure – I sort of like that in my music, it seems to add to that secret exclusivity.
Anyhow, the singer is called Gene October – that’s a cool name! Also, I think he has something to say, something a bit unusual, and a bit odd perhaps –
what on earth this one is about I have no real clue, but it does seem to be about something
What would you do?
This one is like a bit dark, like the Doors or something, not typical punk style really
Look at the Outside
Here’s another dark one, really dark!
This ones even darker, its like punk blues man!
They done a cover of Many Rivers! Shit, that’s not typical punk at all! Its not that good, but its quite sweet I think
This one is probably my fav, a real belter – flat out good song! It sounds really 70’s – I don’t think later generations had this energy 🙂 The drumming towards the end is cracking! I like punk music the way jazz officianados like their jazz!
Don’t get me Wrong
Here’s a good anthem song to round off this post
