There is doubtlessly little point responding to this, but here I am...

David Owens,

You may detest 'Liege and Lief'. That is your opinion, and as such fair enough. However, to describe it as a pile of plodding, pub rock rubbish is not an opinion. It is factually wrong.

In case you are unaware, 'Pub Rock' was a musical scene that developed in the mid 70's in the UK. It was most prevelant in South East England. Dr Feelgood were, perhaps it's finest exponents. Are you really telling me that this splendid as it is, has much to do with 'Crazy Man Michael'?

And, Tunesmith. Would Mark Mark Knopfler have done a better job than RT? Bollocks!
