Quote from: dr beat on August 12, 2020, 12:17:10 PMThinking about years they haven't covered, I think they've pretty much done all the 70s, although not sure if they've covered 1972.
Quote from: badaids on August 12, 2020, 05:03:12 PM Why the fuck not - if nonces, pervs and cunts are out of bounds then they have already broken that rule on half a dozen or so presenters and performers.
Quote from: dr beat on August 12, 2020, 05:27:58 PMThere's a relatively lengthy discussion about Glitter in one of the earliest episodes, where Simon talks about DJing his stuff.
Quote from: Rizla on August 12, 2020, 05:24:25 PMThe closest they've come to discussing an actual wrong 'un, (Glitter aside and I don't think they went into much detail did they?) was Tam Paton and J King, and they made the point that as much of a cunt as both men undoubtedly were, they drew much more fire due to their sexuality than say Jimmy Page or any other sexual exploiter of minors, esp given the difference in age of consent laws. But to reiterate, Savile wasn't *just* a nonce, he was a serial, systematic exploiter, a hugely sinister and violent figure, picking the most vulnerable victims imaginable, not to mention a fucking necrophile. There is no comparison between his crimes and the others. No-one else even comes close.
Quote from: Rizla on August 12, 2020, 06:15:54 PMYet another thing to bear in mind, which I'd guess is why they want to steer clear of discussing JS - all of the other nonces mentioned faced justice in their lifetimes, whilst he went to the grave having never answered to a single one of his terrible crimes. His many many victims were denied closure. Discussing him be seen as insensitive to said victims, as well as raking over ashes that have been raked enough. Consign the evil cunt to history's dustbin, I say.
Quote from: Seedsy on August 12, 2020, 07:05:14 PMYeah, but the gang are intelligent, thoughtful and skillful wordsmiths. They wouldn't do it in a way which is insensitive. And Al is there to completely draw a line under such a subject like Saville and move on. I personally think Saville has to be discussed.Sorry if this has already been asked, The most obvious wow factor totp moment that hasn't been done is bowie and star man. I take it that was a Saville episode?

Quote from: The Roofdog on August 12, 2020, 09:49:03 AMA highlight of the last episode was the incredulity in his voice with "They released Shakespeare's Sister as a single. What do you think you're doing? Do you think this is going to be number one? - No!"(I like Ask too. Shakespeare's Sister is utter dogshit though.)
Quote from: DrGreggles on August 12, 2020, 11:00:52 PMIt's almost as if Morrissey is a massive cunt and Terry Hall isn't!
Quote from: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on August 12, 2020, 11:10:43 PMAnd that Colourfield record is so much better than How Soon is Now?
Quote from: Pearly-Dewdrops Drops on August 12, 2020, 11:07:31 PMDoesn't really change the respective merits of the music in question.
