    Cultural reference coming up . . . . I think the horse race at the end that Bruce commentates on is a reference to the Derek & Clive track "Horse Racing"; the words are different but it has the same feel, so I imagine it's a conscious imitation.  :smartarse:

    4/10

    Space Station No. 5 is another Montrose cover, but Bruce does not take it seriously at all and proceeds to talk through the last verse and solo. It’s backhanded by a six-minute joke with Bruce once again impersonating manager Rod Smallwood while Janick plays some chords. It’s funny for about one minute.

    That's the point.
    Tsk, tsk, tsk. Do you homework Knick. :) That's another song (a hidden track). Bayswater Ain't a Bad Place to Be. For the record: it is also not serious, and it's 8 minutes. ;) Hope it didn't affect your vote too much (you can always change it, I guess).

    I get that it's the point, I guess I just don't see the novelty in such things.

    Huh, why is my version mixed together the way it is...? Must be the Illuminati.

    It's on the same track probably. But these are different songs.

    Oh, yes I know that. I actually gave Space Station a 5/10 and Bayswater a 3/10, but there was no thread for the latter (and I didn't feel like making one) so I averaged them both to a 4/10.

    No, Nicko! Not behind that bush! The bloody Queen plays golf - well if she fucking played golf she'd fuckin' play it here, wouldn't she!
