And another obvious Pogues reference.

 

There is a Damnation Army and a mucous membrane on youtube. Both are heavy metal bands.

 

Each chapter of City of Demons is named after a memorable 80s punk/new wave/metal track. I compiled them into a list and added some others to make a Hellblazer CD. Plus my friend Jef uploaded to me the disk image from Ade's WAY TOO AWESOME double CD which I listen to all the time, oh and the sequel which makes for 3 CDs of pure HELLBLAZER tunage greatness And there's the hard copies waiting for me aT HIS PLACE TOO WHENEVER i GET TO dALLAS AGAIN. (SORRY, KEEP HITTings capslock and I'm too wired to bother with fixing oit). . I reread Original SIns the other day while listening to Ade's project and it goes so well with the comic, that I can only suggest pouring yourself a pint, sitting on your porch outside and cranking the stereo up so the neighbors will also appreciate it.

 

And, Ade, we have a surprise coming to you soon. Unfortunately, jef's PC crashed this morning, which will delay the surprise, but I think you'll like it and/or appreciate it. More on that as technology allows.

Anything by The Rezillos or the Dead Kennedys makes me think of HB, The Clash too. I'm sure The Rezillos are mentioned in one issue in fact.

He doesn't really remind me of HB as such but I find that a bit of Tom Waits makes for good reading music especially the album Bone Machine.

Can't find a good version of Murder In The Red Barn on youTube so heres another

That's an awesome idea. However, I'm babysitting a friend right now. Ironically, he's perfect at this sort of thing. But I reccommend Ade in my stead. To be honest, I barely listen to music right now and know of nothing new. But I would love to contribute once I have the time. It's a great ideea!

You know, I (and the gang) would all very much look forward to the day when your trusty accomplice is able to do this project with you.

 

Please suggest it to him,

There are far worse things to be obsessed with. And it's not like any of us in here are in a position to judge...

On a strictly personal "emotional journey of feelings and such" type level, I've always thought "If I Ever Leave This World Alive" by Flogging Molly to be a dead-perfect song for John.

 

Lyric-wise, "Alias" by In Flames is pretty great with its chorus of "don't believe the mask, it adapts to any lie...don't tell me, tell my ghost, I blame him for all I don't want to know".
