"I don't get it", said I, "will anyone still be listening to that in 20 years time?"
I put forward a considered and well argued case for the expected longevity of The Quireboys and The Dogs D'Amour, versus the likely disappearance of The Stone Roses (I think the argument was declared a draw).
And now, 20 years on I eagerly await the 20th Anniversary Edition of The Dogs D'Amour album "In The Dynamite Jet Saloon".
In a way, I was correct - The Stone Roses did disappear for 5 years, returning in 1994 with "Second Coming" (which of the two Stone Rose albums, I much prefer).
Were the Quireboys & The Dogs the future?
Probably not, but they still get regularly listened to round these parts
