why couldnt they write more songs like Gentle Tuesday?
and X-TRMINATOR (?) kinda sorta, but generally find PS to be overrated.
sonic flower groove is a gem though
Have you heard about how hellish it was for them to put the album together though? David Cavanagh's Creation Records biography tells the whole gory story in pretty great detail; it's brilliant. Apparently Gillespie ended up singing some of his vocal takes word by word because he didn't like the way his voice sounded over whole lines, let alone songs...
Some of the REEEEEEEALLY early singles are ace; All Fall Down, Crystal Crescent (with Velocity Girl on the b-side). Lovely stuff. It'd be funny if the new album sounded like that - since Evil Heat, they've revisited all corners of their back catalogue bar that one...
not been able to find them
I like it when they're being the Counterfeit Stones. I like the stones.
Because it was hippy shit. :)
I'm losing more than I'll ever have is their best from pre screamadelica I reckon.
For me, it's all about the Dixie Narco EP.
