'Black Dog on My Shoulder' is one of my favourite MSP b-sides.
man, i've not listened to timttmy for ages.
there's a reason for this :D
he's quite correct, however, in saying that a lot of the better tracks from the album sessions slipped out as b-sides, especially the ones on the Tolerate single.
Black Holes for the Young!
Theaudience - whatever happened to them?
she had a solo album that did quite well, then she had a kid and did a second record that sunk.
Wonder what happened to the rest of 'em...
but apparently ms ellis-bextor has a new album out next year which may, or may not, include a cover of The Model.
why why why were these things left off the album in favour of the mid-paced drivel on there?
although it's nowhere near as bad as people make it out to be.
i don't know. i think the first six tracks are all fantastic, but after that, i couldn't even tell you what most of the songs are, which probably says it all.
except SYMM, which is the worst song EVAH.
and it's fucking good.
having been MSP-obsessed for a long time (i've read that fucking simon price book more times than i care to remember) it's nice to get a different perspective on things.
you're all lovely, etc. know your enemy will get done this weekend. this is... was a bit of a struggle as you can tell.
the b-sides thing with that record.
THE BALLAD OF THE BANGKOK NOVOTEL!
its only entertaining in that he so wants to sound like mark e smith in it, thus pure hilarity
you cannot let a Know Your Enemy piece pass without a mention of Ian Brown's remix of Let Robeson Sing.
i'll see if i can dig it out
i forgot to mention how good the mogwai remix of you stole the sun is, about 5000 times better than the original
gimme a shout, i have all the CD singles from it.
As I recall, all that seemed to have happened with the remixes is that David Holmes put loads more drums on there and Mogwai just took all the drums off. I'll have to listen to it again.
When I was about 11 or something.
The Mogwai remix is basically Mogwai playing a Mogwai song with the song's vocals over it. David Holmes just loops the guitar line or something.
JDB is flyin' the kite.
LIKE A MANIC STREET PREEECH-AH!
though i do quite regularly click over to jamie's page.
i agree on 'nobody loved you' and 'tsunami'. they are great songs
i think the album as a whole grew on me from when i first heard it. what was great about that album was that i was so disappointed by the taped copy my friend gave me that i went straight out and bought 'the holy bible' instead, which i hadn't heard and is still my favourite album.
that's a grand single b side
basically what i was talking about. hearing that made me think the album would be amazing if they could let a song like that go as a bside. foolish i.
ok, so once.
they NEVER play b-sides.
I love it when you remember MSP songs that aren't the obvious ones. I remembered recently how incredible Further Away is.
Nicky Wire has a habit of making everything so clunky, but Further Away is just simple. it's lovely.
is what makes him so annoying nowadays
he can do something lovely and then something godawful
this is a properly great series of articles. I'm really enjoying reading them, cheers!
