when i was a teenager it was the meteors. was obsessed by them. there wasnt much else but them and my local football team. to this day theyre still my favourite band. if i dont listen to their first 6 singles or first 4 or 5 lps for a long enough time i still think theyre as good as the first time i ever heard them. this single here could be released today and it would still sound as fresh. personally, i dont think anyone, anywhere, ever has sounded as good as this or even come close. their image and reputation were perfect for youth in small boring scottish towns who travelled to other small boring scottish towns in support of their team. their shows could be pretty mad as well which kinda added to the mystique about them. it didnt feel like the safest environment when your 15, but it felt magic. in later life ive been back to see them and i wasnt the slightest scared at all and found most people there to be slapable dicks. not the band and their followers though. pheew.
