Sometimes, the best bands are like the best TV
series (Faulty Towers, The Office) – they don't overstay their welcome.
Fawlty Towers had only one season; The Office had two. The Velvet
Underground produced only three albums; The Sex Pistols only one
proper. Roxy Music made eight and they are all perfect. The Stones, on the other
(though a great singles band), have quite possibly only ever made one
great album (Exile on Main Street). Queen never made a brilliant album
(except Greatest Hits).
