Their first album is a classic, I love it.

2nd album was fair, average, so so.

All acts that the band spawned including Ian Brown solo leave me cold.

So, pretty much a one hit (album) wonder I guess.

But what a hit.

On their reunion I am reminded of the title of a Frank Zappa album 'We're Only In It For The Money'

At least Johnny Rotten was truthful when he toured the reformed Sex Pistols with the bassist they originally kicked out.

Cash, people, folding, hard stuff, moolah, wonga ;)

Ah ha I think the Finn is a little more cultured than us over in Gods Garden. I wonder how many pallets I would need for a mink fur hat ?
We have gone over to winter currency here. You just wouldn't believe the difference in value between a wet pallet and a dry pallet now that winter has arrived. :drool:
