Bah. One news story on the death of The World's Oldest Teenager, and six (count 'em) on some no-name idiot from scotland.

Hey... the guy was in the Skids... okay, so I barely know who they are, but they have the song after the Sex Pistols on the punk album in the Langy jukebox. :cool:

The Skids "Scared to Dance" album is really a very fine album. Frankly, one of the better punk into post-punk albums.

All the songs on it were written by Stuart Adamson and Richard Jobson.

Rufus Thomas was really fucking irritating. The world's music has, on average, just become marginally better.
