Its such a fun record (I loved the youtube of the Sticks doing "Put a Little English on It" btw).
Paul really nailed the idiom in a scary way. Makes my inner Ronson smile. How have I missed this guy til now? Where did he make this record and who played on it? Was Gord N in on this? "Made in Japan" is a better Mott song than a lot of Mott songs. Avoiding copyright infringement with "Roll 'Way the Stone" not "Roll Away the Stone". Guitar by Mark Ralphs! Its dynamite."
"I didn't put 2 and 2 together with the "No Fun" connection but loved them too. I watched some footage online of different "Polly" incarnations and was wowed by his guitar feel. That kind of touch is so fucking rare. When we came across our Murray we became Odds again because he had that feel. We call it "70's hands". It was a no brainer to ask him to join the band. It doesn't happen often anymore. You can tell when somebody actually lives and breathes through the guitar in that particular way. It's a black art. No instructions can teach it. "
