The Chords – Maybe Tomorrow (1980)

Spending an evening fuming about the ludicrous, inaccurate, unambitious, embarrassing, hyperbole peddled by Andrew Marr in his self styled “History of the World”.

Suddenly remembered that I’d loaded up the first three Stiff Little Fingers LPs on MP3 for perusal after dozens of years of neglect.

Midway through listening to “Nobody’s Heroes”, I realised that the riff from the title track was remarkably similar to that used by The Chords in their epic “Maybe Tomorrow” single released in early 1980. On one level, a real “The Jam by numbers” mod workout with Rickenbackers in full working order. On the other, a classic piece of mod-pop-punk genius …. you choose.

The original studio version and then a snippet from Top of the Pops. Reassuringly, Jimmy Saville does not appear to be lurking round the back on this occasion.
