    I wish I didn't. Never could find it in me to like Madness.
  5. Here we go -- the world's longest Nutty Train :p

    I just don't get it.

    This appears to be a film of a bunch of school-boys pretending to play musical instruments, and attempting poor imitations of Wilson and Kepple, though lacking both Betty and any knowledge of terpsichory.

    Utter foolishness!

    Oh, for the days when music was made by serious folk!

    'twas a dear old thread, and shall be greatly missed.

    Now it joins all of those other interesting threads which passed into that bourne from which no
    traveller returns, Offtopictania.

  13. Ironic that I should start a thread that would by turns lead to both the praise and panning of one of my favorite groups. By the by, if it's a more musically mature version of Madness that you want, you should check out The Liberty of Norton Folgate. Released about two years ago, it's a damn brilliant album right up there with The Kinks' 'Arthur (or The Decline and Fall of the British Empire)'.
  14. I'll have to check into it. Thanks for the recomendation.

    I hate to veer on-topic ;) but...

    I have. I was twelve the first time I heard it from a friend the same age as me: "You're so old... Everything you like is... old."

    ^^ One of my friends calls our home "a mausoleum" -- antebellum relics, WWII relics, inherited furniture, Atwater Kent radios, framed historical documents on the study walls, ancestral portraits and wedding pictures . . . Wait a minute; he may be right!

    I actually like this version better than the Prince Buster original.

  19. It's the museum and you're the curator.
  20. I think we all are to some extent. I have so many collections that I sort of feel that way too. :p
