So damn cold (VERY IMPORTANT FIX NEEDED)

I really like the random featured little lyric thingy on the homepage, but today I saw this and it made me a little itchy - the quote from 9w9 reads "It's so damn cold and it's just not true" ... and that's not the lyric.

Please address as a highest priority.

1959 link in Lyrics section description

Just a note - and you're probably already aware - but the link to 1959 and all that in the Lyrics section's description doesn't work any more, sadly.

Lucretia's hard rain + other thoughts

I know that the reference to Dylan's "A hard rain's a-gonna fall" has been noted before, but I was wondering how much it's really been explored - since I think, perhaps, that the associations go further than a mere single pun. e.g.: "I hear the roar of a big machine two worlds and in between" vs. "I...

Barracuda, by Heart. Appropriate subject matter and power chord riffage. And I could totally imagine Von mumbling through it in his baritone, with Ben on backing high notes.

Here's what I'm hearing, from Bristol: Watch the space between the stars There is no captain until you do Threw a line; we did not [?] it. We’re all many; we are few. I keep my fireworks on the bridge Hold my crew from side to side The world is skinny, well The world is wide We’re all many; we a...

So... because I'm mental, I just bought tickets to fly home for the two London gigs (from the U.S.). But the gigs are sold out. Anyone have any pointers toward where I might be able to find a ticket (or two, since I might bring a friend along) for the two nights at the Roundhouse?

Armageddon It

OK, forgive the thread necro but I figured it was better than starting a new one... So, I was listening to the radio the other day and Def Leppard's "Armageddon It" came on. And, you know, I'm pretty damn certain that Under The Gun references it: Take it, take it, take it from me I got an itchy fing...

Just a note that you seem to have "left" and "right" confused on that page of the wiki, vis-a-vis the placement of the videos.

My immediate reaction:

- Fantastic vocals; best I've heard him in, oh, 10 plus years.
- a bit of a low-energy gig and some issue with someone at the front leading to a butchered tune. Von: "that was weird, but f**k it."
- a spine-tingling 1959.

I don't seem to be able to (re-)subscribe ... is Pete (or someone else) still running it?

Owen's The Wrestlers

One of the things that makes the Sisters my favourite band is the depth of the lyrics, and the fact that there are all these references and allusions buried in there. I think Andrew once referred to them as "time bombs" or something similar, and it's such an appropriate description. I'm actually qui...
