• Culture Shock Reunion – Some Facts

    Comments Off on Culture Shock Reunion – Some Facts
    March 14, 2013 /  Music

    Culture Shock formed in the early 1980s, Nigel & I had been jamming together for a while & were later joined by Dick & then Bill thus Culture Shock was born.

    All of the culture Shock songs apart from 3 or 4 were co-written by me. So when I find out that Culture Shock have reformed & see this statement on Citizen Fish’s Facebook page ‘Dick Jasper and Bill from the original lineup’ I am deeply offended. With no disrespect to Jasper, he was never part of the original lineup, so this is not only fucking offensive to me, it is also a lie. Quoting Jonny Rotten ‘Ever fell like you’ve been cheated?’, because you & I are being cheated.

    So Culture Shock have reformed & been secretly rehearsing for several weeks. During that time no one had the basic decency to let me know. So I feel pretty hurt & angry. Would I have taken part in a Culture Shock reunion? Possibly, but I was never asked.

    The whole way that this has taken place seems pretty cowardly & underhand. As you grow older you learn something from all of these life events & I feel I’ve learned something really important here. I have been really touched by all of the messages of support from good friends; and it makes me laugh that most of them have had a similar response “What a bunch of c*nts!”

    Please share this if you think it matters.

    Love & Peace – Paul Basss – from the original lineup 😉

    If you don’t like it, say you don’t like it.

    Amarok is simply the best music player ever. Eeven if all the rest of Ubuntu wasn’t as great as it is (& it is!) this would be worth switching for.

    Yes it’s a KDE app, but it is pretty easy to run it under Gnome

    What have I become
    My sweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away in the end
    You could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    Baby Baby by The Vibrators, it’s a fantastic love song, just
    LISTEN TO IT
    Mmm, you’re so pretty,
    Not to talk to you would be a crime.
    Aah, let me put my arms around you,
    Just wanna use up a little of your time.
    (And I’m going -)

    Baby baby baby,
    Baby baby baby,
    Baby baby baby,
    Won’t you be my girl.

    Aah, your eyes are so pretty,
    And the clothes you wear they’re so fine.
    Hey won’t you come round to my place
    Just wanna use up a little of your time.
    (And I’m going -)

    Baby baby baby,
    Baby baby baby,
    Baby baby baby,
    Won’t you be my girl.

    Video of Jim White – Perfect Day To Chase Tornados, probably my all time favourite song.

    Jim White performing Perfect Day To Chase Tornados at Rough Trade – This is a great song performed live, seen him do it a few times & it’s pretty much like you hear it here.
