What's burning on your mind?
DiS is chatting today.
something about The Postal Service..
what with TPS selling more records than DCFC???
something about airplanes
another All Time Quarterback album.
solo releases in 2000/2001-ish under that moniker. there was a CDEP and a cassette tape, bits of which were later compiled into a self-titled CD album on Barsuk. which i think is still available. it's also fab. it's got a load of charm and a sense of wonderous naivity around it. i love it.
that was great!
I'm gonna have a ben gibbard 19th and get everything he's ever done.
and a few nice vinyls. yay!
Definitely get the All-time Quarterback record. It's ace.
And if you haven't already got it, the Home EP is also well worth getting. It's 4 solo tracks by Ben Gibbard and 4 by Andrew Kenny from The American Analog Set.
I do love ben gibbard.
i still don't have that. but 'you remind me of home' is just the loveliest song <3
cause he really made them some dollar, i expect.
He sure did.
What record of theirs do they not like compared to the others? Which is the stinky child?
The O.C actually brought them to my attention, neither a good or bad thing that really. Love DCFC.
If Narrow Stairs is less poppy than Plans and why?
What films/music/women inspired the new album?
When's the UK tour? Are they going to do some small intimate gigs as well as the bigger venues?
Are Nick and Jason involved in any side projects?
Is Chris producing any new albums soon?
Do they score with loads of indie chicks?
Questions burning on everyone's lips I'm sure...
Also, can they persuade the Dismemberment Plan to get back together?
More serious questions:
What artists/records influenced the new record?
How they're finding life on a major label - do they have as much freedom as they would have liked?
Is Chris producing any more records at the moment?
What new ideas have they brought to the new record to keep it sounding fresh?
Are they doing anything to encourage people to buy the new record, rather than just download it - fancy cover art, bonus DVD etc?
(PS I'm well jealous you get to speak to him - is it in person?)
w/ ben - no Walla
Kudos for sorting that.
er, rofl... eh... you could ask ben about his ballooning waistline, 'we look like giants' indeed...
Can you ask them why their music is so polarising in that a song can be either the best song ever or as irritating as chewing tinfoil?
sends her love, they'll understand.
