Re: London meet up - Saturday 7th August - A cause for optimism

I am actually off work the two weeks leading up to the meet up, so my review might be out of date before we get there :D :D Lets just book it and be devils. The good news it looks like England will now be open well in time for the meet up. There is even some speculation we might be open on 5th July

Just listened to it. Decent interview Elvis sounded like he enjoyed it. Interesting that Jamie got into Elvis via The Juliet Letters and North

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

Having lived with Hey Clockface for a couple of weeks now it truly is a great record. To add my 2 penneth worth into the Style Council debate, I will buy the new collection on Vinyl only because i Dont have any of their records in that format.

Re: Twilight of the Gods

IMO Elvis and Weller have actually recently made a couple of great records. I know my friend VG doesnt agree on Weller. But I have really loved his last three albums. I love Look Now I think its up there with Elvis's great records. And although I wasnt actually looking forward to Hey Clockface on f...

[quote="Harry Lime"]I've really enjoyed all three volumes of this project. Some really nice and interesting arrangements of the songs--and it's nice to hear Steve's work on them. I agree Harry. Sometimes their more plaintive vocals mean you can really pick out the great lyrics EC wrote. I ...

on Friday afternoon I listened to what we have already and the album is falling into place. Now following the Aussie radio programme we have Radio is everything and the Whirlwind. The whirlwind and no flag are probably my favourite tracks

Really great interview. Radio is everything is ok not the worst song I have heard. The Whirlwind is wonderful I have goosebumps. Beautiful song.
