Re: Thoughts on the New York Shows...

From a distance, looking at the set lists etc., it seems that there is nothing much especially new with these shows. Is that true? Seems repetitive to a certain degree. No break-out venturing? Seems still kind-of 'stuck.'? not so jardine. with the volume of long unplayed songs, the eight or so chan...

Re: It's official..."brilliant new album"

MOOT, I love your forensic analysis of the evidence. But part of me expects an unheralded splurge (bad choice of words) of new songs unrelated to other projects. Apart from maybe 'You Shouldn't Look at Me', which I think will be on the new album. That said, do albums even exist anymore? 'You Should...

Re: "Someone Else's Heart" - EC single for Record Store Day?

So, how exactly does this release 'support indie record stores' if it is in a format that many can't play [correction, maybe just me], and there is a limited number? I guess it reminds me that record store day is near, but there are no record stores near.

Re: "Someone Else's Heart" - EC single for Record Store Day?

I sort-of 'get' the vinyl fetish and feel the remorse over the loss of record stores, but these releases simply mean that, after 41 years of listening, songs keep getting released in ways that i can't ever access.

Ahhhhhhh! Might just be rehearsals for the upcoming shows, but that lovely tangled board of wires seems to say otherwise? Certainly makes me understand how much I miss the guy(s).

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

Watching that video, I thought of how Elvis and Diana could get into a studio and he could quickly record all these new tunes that are floating around. Even a sort of live in the studio kind of thing (with a video). I can imagine how wonderful her piano elaborations/improv would be cool. Even video ...

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

what does that mean nowadays, "releasing a single?" used to mean there was a flip side to anticipate, or further tracks on a cd, or at least an object to purchase. is it just a download, then? if so, my own terrible afflictions regarding this method of 'release' deprive me once again. stil...
