This fanatical punk rocker was written by The Damned’s guitarist Brian James. Lyrically the song follows the theme of cops and guns, but Brian has gone on the record saying the lyrics are a series of disjointed images meant to be sung at high speed. Before the band gave this song a formal recording treatment, they had been playing it live for months. Since they were short on time and budget, the album’s producer chose to not to enhance their sound with production flourishes and overdubs. Instead he went for a live sound to capture their raw energy. Their producer, Nick Lowe, was the right man for the job. Nicknamed “Basher,” he could git-r-done with no wasted time.

Brian James wrote “Neat Neat Neat” just before Christmas 1976. “In those days, songs tended to spill out,” he told Uncut magazine. “I was sitting around playing my Gibson SG and the riff came out. I was a big Eddie Cochran fan. Forget Elvis, it was always Eddie for me, and to a lesser extent, Jerry Lee Lewis. I bastardized it a little, and that twanging riff formed the basis of the song and the bassline.” On the song’s guitar solo and riff, James references Chuck Berry & Eddie Cochran heavily. Bass player Captain Sensible added. “I remember when Brian taught me the song. He sat me down and said, ‘It’s Eddie Cochran - with a trust!’ The twist is that the third time you play it, there’s a little lurch, a kink, in the riff.”

In an interview, frontman Dave had this to say about the song: “Like everything at that point, it was a burst of pure energy and excitement. I think of all the albums, that first album - with ‘Neat Neat Neat’ and ‘New Rose’ - perfectly encapsulates what you would see when you came to see the band.”

Credit to @slash Credit to @thelegendsofmusic Stevie Wonder playing “Higher Ground” Live in 1974

“Higher Ground” was written by Stevie Wonder about getting a second chance and making the most of it. What’s surprising about this song is that Stevie Wonder recorded it three months before he was almost killed on his way to a benefit concert in Durham, North Carolina. The car he was riding in was behind a truck carrying a load of logs, which stopped suddenly, sending a log through the windshield and hitting Wonder in the head. That accident put the singer/musician in a coma for four days His road manager and good friend, Ira Tucker Jr., knew that Stevie liked to listen to music at high volume, so he tried singing this song directly into his ear. At first he got no response, but the next day, he tried again and Wonder’s fingers started moving in time with the song - the first sign that he was going to recover.

Recalling his time in the coma, Wonder said, “For a few days I was definitely in a much better spiritual place that made me aware of a lot of things that concern my life and my future and what I have to do to reach another higher ground. This is like my second chance for life, to do something or to do more and to face the fact that I am alive.” Around the time the song was written, Stevie felt that he was guided by a mix of Christian morality and astrological mysticism, Wonder believed he was writing a “special song” whose lyrics suggested a coming day of judgment. “I did the whole thing in three hours” he told Q magazine. It was almost as if I had to get it done. I felt something was going to happen. I didn’t know what or when, but I felt something.”
