I Get Along?
Hmmm... It's tricky this, isn't it?
The thing is that it weren't for Neil's own commentary about the song, I wouldn't have necessarily had a clue as to who it was about.

The satire or subject is not immediate... at least to these ears.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Those of you doing the pointless internet shouty thing, up to almost parody standard, do you want to perhaps set up another thread? You’ve ruined this one and the way you’ve started sniping at each other is sooo boring and predictable. Maybe go to the off topic section? Sorry... If I see someone ad...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I am sure everyone here is overbrimming with compassion, empathy and informed, considered intelligence.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

There are two subjects liable to fuel passionate debate - one is politics, the other is religion, so I look forward to a future E.P on that topic! Neil is probably laughing his socks off at the irony of fans furiously arguing about the political content and acting like the very keyboard warriors he...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I'd consider Agenda a test for the post-Stuart Price years. If it does well in terms of charts they could actually slow down touring and start releasing regular EPs instead. I'd welcome this.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Do you think any Agenda tracks will be worked into the forthcoming Asian dates of the Super tour, or will that powder be kept dry until the next new production?
