Re: The Catalogue Interviews - put your questions to Harold Faltermeyer!

How did the songs emerge? Were there demos already done, which you were presented with? Or did you witness the actual writing of any songs?

Re: Reissues project

I still wonder if a song like Love and War (from behaviour sessions I believe) might still see the light of day and was purposefully left off the further listings so it might be re-recorded -

Re: Always 30 on my mind

I remember seeing it on the Elvis programme in the summer of 1987 when i was already recoiling from the magnificent of what have I done to deserve this? They were concealed in smoke from a steam train and played the first version - presumably the demo - before it was beefed up to world conquering le...

Re: In slow motion

It;s hard to disagree with that Drico - you're right. But Elysium would certainly be in my top PSB albums were it to run as - 1. Invisible 2. Leaving 3. Your early stuff 4: Winner (instrumental - or Dawson mix) 5. A face like that 6. Breathing space 7. Give it a go 8. In his imagination 9. Memory of...

Re: In slow motion

It's almost unbearable to think how Elysium could have been a match to Behaviour (and so late into their career) had they simply improved the track listing with In slow motion and In his imagination.

Re: Reissues project

My 6 year old LOVES the Dumpling song, but it's hardly worth listening to again.

The highlights are the wistful Dancing in the dusk, ring road, the loving kind - although I agree it suits GA more, it's still an outstanding song.

Re: Reissues project

Not putting In his imagination of Elysium is such a shame

if they'd replaced Ego Music and Hold on with In his imagination and In slow Motion then Elysium would be an equal to Behaviour as one of their absolutely best albums.

A real missed opportunity

Re: She Pops as good as The Pop Kids

I'm not sure it's the same calibre as Pop Kids, but I Love She pops.

It's really cute and I love the lyrics. And the vocal harmonies on it - the double tracked business - are genuinely gorgeous. It's very throwaway, yet incredibly effective.

Re: perfect harmonies

I really like My girl, but it doesn't sound like they spent that much time on it. It's not definitive. But still, it has quite a charm to my ears.
