I'M STRANDED

Free with this months Mojo, there's a thoroughly depressing collection of songs, of Hurt, Pain & Despair, nothing wrong with a bit of hurt, pain and despair, but no Nikki Sudden or Television Personalities, come on what were the suicide watchers at Mojo thinking ?
The only good track on it is by Jim Reid who offers a fucked up and deconstructed version of The Saints classic tail of alienation; 'I'm Stranded'. Jim makes it sound dark and despairing and shows his genius and the power of a killer song. I'm Stranded is one of the 'classic punk singles of all time' and The Jesus and Mary Chain were one of the true revolutionary bands of the post punk era.
Anyway for your aural consumption here's 3 takes on I'm Stranded. Jim's version, a more conventional cover by one of my all time fave bands The Vibrators and of course the original by The Saints.
