Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

Absolutely brilliant. So surreal to listen to those lyrics first thing this morning while reading the news. I guess the country did decide 😳. Deliberate or not that was impeccable timing Boys! Why? Because choosing the antisemitic commie scum and EU whore Corbyn would have been the sensible choice?...

Re: Burning the heather

Curse of the PSB strikes again, in a slightly different form:

They release a song with the lyric 'it's never too late', one day after it IS too late.

Bye, bye, Britain.

So, retro, how's your source coming on? Any more nuggets?

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Hi Effen, I know you'll be growing fatigued by all the questions, but I just had one about tempo. The ballads - You are the one, Hoping for a miracle, Only the dark - are they mid-tempo or full-on ballad? As a reference point, is Burned Be My Heather the slowest song on the album? And lastly - which...

Re: Burning the heather

Sounds like an external recording off the vinyl... but enough for me to tell that I'm going to really enjoy it!

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Effen has added this - not sure if you saw it Daveid and Ghost: ** 8.12.19 Update** I no longer skip Wedding in Berlin. It's not terrible, it's perfectly fine. As an instrumental it would actually be quite enjoyable, and there's bit of Chris brilliance near the end where the whole thing seems to st...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I am wondering that, too.

Is WIB excusable in the album narrative context? A fantasised happy ending for Will-o-the wisp ‘the one’?

Another reason, then, to ask the question why you are here. I don’t imagine your trolling antics are going to convince the grown-ups to subscribe to your Facebook page....

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

O man. I am very excited now. Effen, you are a f***ing star for sharing. Beyond the Imperial era, my feeling is that their latter-day creative peak was Fundamental to Yes. I have enjoyed the Stuart Price albums, but much in the way one enjoys a box of Quality Street, and there are plenty of orange f...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Wow. This sounds like a serious, grown-up album, but with plenty of thrills for the kids in us.

Thanks, Effen. You were already one of my favourite posters on here.

I just keep thinking of Eddy Grant.
That's helped me to get past Rod Stewart. So thank you for that.

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

It's fantastic to be reading this. Monkey Business sounds like it could be amazing, or possibly another Marmite... Retro, in terms of the style of the writing, and the quoting of N&C, it certainly does feel like the text of Literally... and if so, we're getting the very thing that people buy Literal...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

“Where we might be going next...”

Nickname might be crassly wrong on most fronts, but maybe there is mileage in the idea of another album soonish after this one...

Re: Burning the heather

'Decide' - well, judging by the title, this will be another song that will definitely not have anything at all whatsoever no-sir Amen to do with Brexit.

Re: Burning the heather

ok boomers... Everybody's obviously free to project whatever meanings they want into a song. I will leave you to it then! https://video-images.vice.com/articles/5ace3b701eaf4d0006bb223d/lede/1523465336072-Screen-Shot-2018-04-11-at-120751-PM.png?crop=0.9952895538930451xw%3A1xh%3Bcenter%2Ccenter&resi...
