Pfan, I'm definitely taking you up on your offer to help out with the Fake List's lyrics. Unless I come up with something absolutely hilarious on the very first draft, anyway.

You send me the music, I'll write the words. Sounds like a plan. All I want is credit and compensation in the form of those big checks they give to charity.

So we have a Elton John/Bernie Taupin thing going here?

Just don't write anything as lame as Can You Feel The Love Tonight and you're on.

See, if somebody pitches something to me as retro, I'm going to automatically expect some kind of cheesy synth-heavy shit that went #1 in 1979.

You'll find that a lot of music web sites traditionally lump punk and new wave together. I obviously posted the allmusic one before as that page pretty much summed up what I was looking to do for this.

http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=77:4491

And as I said before, Retro is quite the broad term that is used for lots of different things, and while it is indeed more closely associated with New Wave, it works here because, as I already stated, it gets put together with punk and post-punk quite often.

And calling it Retro Island certainly sounds a hell of a lot better than New Wave Island.

As punk, post-punk, and new wave kind of show the evolution of a certain type of music, creating this loose concept isn't really that far-fetched. We certainly stretched the boundries some with certain selections for Prog Island. It's not always black and white.

All in good fun anyway.

Yeah, it was the same for Prog Island too, as I recall.

We're not One, but we're pretty damn similar when it comes down to it.

I've got a song fully written musically and I'm at a complete mental block on lyrics for. I've gotta break past that.

When the idea was originally floated, the genre's and sub-genre's allowed were pretty clear, I thought. And it was a pretty broad spectrum. I think you even posted a fairly large list of bands considered acceptable. I think the name Retro Island was taken too literally. I think Axver started people down that road . The word Retro was never meant to be the only genre used, just the name of the game.

Am I wrong?

It's kind of got a dramatic tone to it. Not sure where to go with it.

No, that's pretty much it. Retro just sounds better.

Anyway, no big deal. Just wanted to make sure Axver understood where I was coming from, as he seems to be a bit perplexed by the whole thing.

Then again, anyone who says Train In Vain sucks and the album London Calling is bloated is a force to be reckoned with.
