is it was re-isssued a few years ago and there were 2 TourFilm tracks on that too! it's a swizz. i think the likes of the Suede re-issues from 2 years back raised the bar for what should go into a package; films, live gigs and extras galore over 2 CDs and a DVD for about a tenner.
not on Going Blank Again. it was a B side.
great lost single aye.
who knew that Teenage Opera was so influential??
It's Pennebaker, and he made the Dylan film Don't Look Back. Scorsese made No Direction Home.
*criminally* under rated.
also doing pretty well ;)
*A Quarter Of A Million* online plays of their remixes and mixtapes in the last year:

i still like it better than Dog Man Star! you never forget your first time i guess.
here's Simon Reynolds talking about that very thing last year: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicblog/2009/dec/07/musically-fragmented-decade
negligible on some of the rockier tracks. Thats my er.. analysis. The Suede forum goes into more depth about it here: http://forum.suede.co.uk/list.php?2
and a firebrand. But aye he did himself no favours on Friday. God damn it made me angry that discussion show.

all 4 of Elastica were on it, at least 1 of Suede too and they've said as much. doesn't quite clear up why Damon had a public go at Brett Anderson for using it in 1994. he's never apologised and it seems fantastically hypocritical if he was doing it himself.
but in an 'it is physically unlistenable' way. literally a disgrace. if it had been the fucking kraftwerk box set or lou reed or whatever but not blur ohh no.
get yrselves signed up to blurcast if you haven't already
t's the best fan resource of film clips and video for any band i've ever seen.
unreleased footage of whole gigs, foreign telly and suchlike. just brilliant stuff.
um.. 'in cinemas'? great!
maybe EMI will release a decent dvd copy of StarShaped some time too soon.
in MOJO this year alex calls their backgrounds 'not working class, not middle' both his mum and dad were teachers and they lived in reasonably nice parts of sheffield. it's like that guy from the verve, he lived in a nice bit of billinge or same and yet everyone thinks he was a wigan hod-carrier.
i think sometimes people get confused between 'coming from a working class background' and 'coming from somewhere in the north'.
is the fact that the green mohair cardi he's got on was the one he wore on the UNPLUGGED show and during the IN UTERO tour. it seemed really eerie. dunno why.
well jon savage as it goes but its on FOXBASE ALPHA,
ending with the famous "stay busy, out of phase, in love".
is jon savage ace or what.
even when it's as mild as nicky wire's, that gets some men *so* angry?
i mean 'thick tranny gobshite ...man/woman'?
didn't go mad in case anyone was wondering. he's still a great writer and writes for 'when saturday comes' and The Quietus. pretty much my favourite music journalist ever.
'hear every heart beat...'
who writes this shit?
it sure beats the NMEs dry reporting-of-everything-they-get-told-as-if-it-were-handed-down-as-fact-on-a-stone-tablet.
yeah one to watch i'd say. if like me (typical oldskool manics fan) you've already sat thru the docus on HOLY BIBLE and EVERYTHING MUST GO on the reissues.
channel 4 have an catch-up/iplayer thingamajig now too so that's handy =
the sort you used to come across in the Meloday Maker in the mid 1990s and..hardly anywhere else even then. so thankyou!
looking forward to hearing it for the first time.
is just about the shittest thing i've ever seen done in the name of a reissue. what absolute clots. no wonder blur/radiohead want nothing more to do with EMI. all business, no love whatsoever for the band, the fans or the product. as alex james once memorably said of the american label that issued the 'blur-ti-go' remix ep 'they've no sense of aesthetics these people'
comes in seperate tracks on the neo-CD too.
that re-issue website is fabulous.
and a man i met in the bar said they had 'brought shame upon all yorkshire'. always raises a smile that.
my favourite pop album of all time bar none getting a remastering. i might have to invest in new speakers just for the occasion!
past their peak. and BOY did i love that peak but that's TWO DECADES people.
and to think people gave THE STREETS a kicking for 2 bad *albums* worth of material.
who the hell is left to tell this sodding story AGAIN. WE'VE HEARD IT! and what's more is we've already heard it in detail from the only people who matter in the story;kurt, courtney, dave grohl and krist. who's next??! the bloke who used to drive the van?
Best thing they've ever done!
thirded. the hottest weekend of my life.
i tend to play them this:
Damn that's a trick missed.
That 2 Doors Down debate again for the people above:
in manchester the other night really. the worst i've ever seen them. although daniel seemed to bne enjoying himself.
god among men.
couldnt have cared less about him since the 4th suede album. and then i heard a track off this last week and my ears pricked up. it's fantastic. dunno the name of the song though but one of the new trax.
is still one of my favourite songs ever.
a fabulous idea for a song, executed and produced fabulously.
the U2 1991 'emergency broadcast network' intros on ZOO TV tour.
the parallax view montage:
terrible news if so.
.. any good?
walked into the 2nd night of the manchester shows on the VERTIGO tour in a bad mood and liking maybe 5 songs tops. walked out mind-blown as a U2-live-show-evangelist. seems you have to have been playing stadiums for decades to 'work it' right.
even the 'pol soundalike rip off merchants EDITORS had better songs and more to say on their album. i can't believe i've actually typed that but it's true.
they're turning into PLACEBO.
it's kenny everett.
