    New remix thing sounds rather good.

    Everybody should listen to the new instrumental Penny Lane at least once.

    (That other sound you’re hearing? That’s Charles Shaar Murray sh*ttin’ himself.)

    my copy was obtained free at golden discs in 1987 when they had a competition celebrating its 20th anniversary. the gimmick was that you could purchase it in old money. so i goes in with the granda’s penny and farthing collection that i found in the shed. weighed a fekn tonne it did. so yer man looks at it and just hands me a copy and tells me ‘take that sh1te with you’.

    salon.com has a piece on it…. they say the album is sexist and represents when music stopped being for “girls”…. and became music for “men”…. http://www.salon.com/2017/05/29/against-sgt-pepper-the-beatles-classic-made-pop-seem-male-nerdy-and-important-and-that-wasnt-a-good-thing/

    All the LOLS

    Kiss my hairy white ass you simpleton like misandrist third wave feminist morons :)

    Do any feminists actually have fun, or are they all just hate filled, bless their cotton socks… :)

    a choice quote “there’s very little on the record that makes a lady want to shake her hips on the dance floor.

    “Sgt. Pepper” is a good pop record, don’t get me wrong. But it’s a record I resent, because it helped cement this notion that music for girls is silly and music for men is artistically significant.”

    Salon…. what the fupp…

      Here’s a suggestion.

      Don’t read salon. Easy enough, and you’ll save yourself a heart attack.

      oh look, Clampers, it was as sure as eggs is eggs that in the run up to the 50th anniversary there’d be a clamour for contrarian articles, and so one or two articles that fit the bill don’t – as a trend – mean that mainstream feminist thinking goes along with this.

      Two things strike me;

      a) the article makes no mention of Getting Better – the (feckin’ Macca) song that alludes to beating a woman
      b) yer wan who wrote this will have an almighty conniption if she ever finds out that Macca often plays Blackbird (yeah, I know, not off Pepper) and prefaces it with being about black female civil rights leaders. Black Birds. Geddit.

      And anyway, yer wan is talking thru her hoop; Pepper cemented sod all about gender in pop. It might have moved the Beatles from Pop to Rawk but you can still have a belter of a pub argument about whether that was a good thing or not. There are days that I’ll fight to defend my contention that Hard Day’s Night was the best thing they ever did!

        I’d add, ‘mainstream’ feminism is the tag along partner of regressive third wave feminism which leads the thinking of modern feminism. That’s pretty clear to, in fairness

        Have a nice weekend Ian ;)

        1. ivan

          I’m not sure if what you’re saying is actually “pretty clear” or if it’s just an opinion, but either way, my expertise is more on the Fabs than feminism so i’ll just take the nice weekend.

          Somebody else might rise to the bait tho’ :D

          hey clamps, if you want a real laugh then check out guerilla feminism on instagram.

          hilarious stuff, hostile to everyone and making up new rules every day. should you fall foul of those rules then you’re an irredeemable scumbag. they’ve already written off feminist icons like Greer for the same. these guys would have issues with the suffragettes ffs

          everything is “problematic”

          1. Happy Molloy

            certainly not offended, amused.

            and it’s not just feminists (of which I very much am one and always will be), it’s the self styled radical type who think little and shout lots

          2. AnAccountant

            Well as for thinking little and shouting lots, the last time I posted here, that guy you’re talking to took exception to me referring to racists in the alt right (I think. I said SOMETHING negative about them anyway) and I’ve seen a few of his posts since then. He seems pretty alt righty. Those shut ins are well known for their, frankly, amusing fear of women (although amusing to me because I’m not on the end of their desperate insanity) so asking a guy who has an unhealthy fear of and resulting hatred for women, to laugh at feminists with you, looks a little ‘dodgy’ but if you say you’re not offended by them, ok then.

            We have a drinking game where every time Clamps finds an ant-feminist angle on any given completely unrelated article we take a drink. Most of us are drunk before lunch.

            By ‘us’ I may mean just me.

            It’s not just you. I was thoroughly sozzled by teatime yesterday. Made for a very enjoyable evening.

            Sorry, I don’t have time to read your message. I’m busy composing a 5000 word email to a woman who wouldn’t respond to the inappropriately familiar texts I sent her about going on a date. The letter will list my many, many qualities that she’s going to miss out on and convey to her in no uncertain terms how completely unbothered by her failure to recognise my greatness. I bid you good day, sir.

    1. smashed

      Yeah . Sounds like everyone is smashed. Including anaccountant. What the fupp are you saying? Your ranting makes no sense.
