Man MacD, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, I had almost forgot about them "stool pigeon" classic

On the subject of "stool pigeons" here is a great tune on the same theme from man who was fond of his fair share of the grass too :cool: Peter Tosh "Where you gonna run"

That takes me back Splash, but if it's the king of grass you want - here he is, the one and only supergrass Bob Marley, with an all time great "Stir It Up". Ohhh yhe, dig it.

Great bit of strummin', a classic. Can't quite picture the banjo player, other than from a close up on the hands, I'd wager he's in the agricultural / construction game, a farmer possibly ?

Over to you pop-pickers.

Hmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,no idea who that Banjo player looks like Macd,,,,,,can you give us a clue? However, until someone identifies him here is an old classic dedicated to all the moderators on the forum

Plastic Bertrand "Ca Plane pour moi"

The Poacher

Is the kid in the picture perhaps more akin to that well renowned 70's home grown star,

Hmmm, could the kid with the banjo perhaps have grown up to front this big rock n roll band?

Some of the modern music (never thought I'd hear myself saying that), is quite good too. Here's a catchy one for all you pop-pickers by the Dresden Dolls.

And check out the guitar riff at the end - a Slash tribute.

And a minor classic from one of my favourite bands "The Smiths", Mozzer may look uncannily like a latter day Don Revie these days but with Johnny Marr he could certainly compose a nifty toone with great lyrics

The Smiths may well be the popular music equivalent of the Alta, but hey you've been in the downer drug trade too long. Now this is the kind of sound you need to respond to MACD with. This is KISS route 1 personified - if you don't feel good after this you must work in a morg. BTW looks like a cross between Phil Lynott's hair and the Emperor's tache might be the star of this video :eek:....now chill, turn up the volume and smile:

Aye I know what you mean, the Smiths can be a tad depressing, like with this one from "Strangeways Here we Come"

Anyone up for a toke on the water? Quality! Intro is a bit confusing but let it rip.
