My wife is unhappy:
Notes on achieving orbit:
I am the least of your problems:
I shall report back on what they're like when I've checked them out properly.
EXCITED FAN BOY ALERT.
Should be seeing them next week in Cardiff!!!!!!!! Seems to follow on nicely from Travels, good stuff.
Where were you when Russell Brand discovered fire?
'I am the least of your problems' is downloadable if you've not noticed. You probably have.
Only listened to them once or twice through my tinny mac speakers though.
I remember doing the same with an early live version of 'Arming Eritrea' and thinking, 'yeah, s'alright' and then having my face blown off when hearing the proper version a few weeks later.
judgement reserved thus far. Very... conventional. I'll wait for the live/fully produced versions for a more considered view, though.
As promised by my brain/face/fingers (*1) here are three new songs with which to fill your chops: http://Futureoftheleft75.official.fm
All are demos (*2) and should be viewed as such, although that doesn't stop us getting pretty damn excited by each and every note. Of the three songs we offer I would think 'my wife is unhappy' would be the only one which wouldn't find it's way to the album - we have other songs in the same mould which make the point rather better, in my opinion. The demo of 'i am the least of your problems' is downloadable so, y'know, give us your email address and feast upon its tumesence.
Chronology - 'i am the least of your problems' and 'my wife is unhappy' were recorded with Llion Robertson at Music Box sometime in September, whilst 'notes on achieving orbit' was recorded with Tom Manning at Monnow Valley a few weeks ago. Listen .. To … those … drums. The latter is a little quieter than the others but I'm sure you can cope what with the volume controls which are rapidly becoming standard on modern stereo and computer equipment.
Lyrics available upon request/ demand.
Also, you'll notice new photos beginning to appear. It's pretty exciting. Anybody using those pictures with me in a stripey top (worst photos of all time - thanks for that Beggars) will be hunted down and summarily killed.
Please don't rip the streamed songs. PLEASE. They're demos, they're frames of reference and they're out there (here) in order to get you excited for the next record (*3), not to be passed around as badly compressed and/or distorted mp3s. Really. This is about trust and mutual appreciation.(*4)
Can't wait for these upcoming shows.
(*1) 'From Cognition to Realisation - a Pathway' (Faber, 2005)
(*2) quickly recorded in a wind tunnel.
(*3) and to give us substantive proof that we still exist.
(*4) like goat sex.
He said that they are recording in the summer and hoping to have the new album out in Sept/Oct time. Was only a fleeting consversation so didn't get anymore information than that but good news none the less!
