And for my next trick:

Got to nr. 6 in the UK album charts and made use of a Polish text from the wall of a Gestapo death cell.

That must be the third symphony by Henryk Gorecki, called 'Symphony of Sorrowful Songs', in the recording with the London Sinfonietta. Conducted by David Zinman.

Seriously accurate there, Hannes.

The best-selling contemporary Classical CD ever. A soul-tearing blast of pure emotion.

Something you just have to hear to believe.

This is a mid nineties album by a band, where the founder's name is within the band's name. He, with his first band, belonged to the starters of New York punk. The searched for album was the only one by that band, that consisted of former members of The Stooges, Rocket from the Thumbs and later Dead Boys, Sonic's Rendezvous Band and the Damned.

Which lp and which song?
As one of the clues was "Eponymous debut album. 1973" the album was also called Gryphon. The Henry VIII song would be "Pastime with Good Company" which (having read back) Hannes-Gregor got ages ago, but with the wrong band.

Sorry, didn't realise we had to name tracks, I got too excited at knowing the right answer for once. :lol:
Sorry I didn't see the Eponymous bit, and just my interest as to which song. :grin:

Hannes - is that meant to be 'Rocket from the Tombs' in the clue?

Still no idea.

Yes, Fretless, sure. I mix that up often and can't stop it. The one from Rocket from the Tombs was with the Dead Boys later. The musician whose name appears in the name of the band started his first group in 1975 and is still active.
