Re: Lonesome Street

I struggle to remember the last music video I saw that I didn't actively go out of my way to find. It's just not an effective medium to promote anything, consequently there is very little budget. Factor that in with how busy all the guys are and I really don't think there is any "need" for an elabor...

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

On those stats I would be very surprised if preorders havent already secured a #1 spot

Re: Secret London gig, March 20 (stream on March 25)

Well I think that reviews should go beyond mere descriptions of the songs, as anyone can hear that for themselves; I was saying that she doesn't really offer any analytical comments, or critical comments about the songs, just 'it sounds like X'. She doesn't even really criticise Ong Ong, just kind ...

Re: Secret London gig, March 20 (stream on March 25)

Not that I'm in any great rush to defend the NME, but seems weird to accuse them of reviewing the stream when they have clearly reviewed songs that weren't played as part of the stream.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

really surprised the tone here is so negative at the moment. They've just announced a tiny show at what 10 days notice. New album on the way. More UK gigs to be announced that we know about. We know they are playing outside the UK. Not really sure how much more people expect 6 weeks ahead of an alb...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I remember some Vote Dave t-shirts and the Greyhound reunion gig poster t-shirts being sold in 09. Think a few other old style t-shirts were sold, an alternative version of the old McNormal and Chips t-shirt. I have no idea how I remember this!

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Although that person seems very under-whelmed by the album, the one thing I'm pleased about is their vibe that it isn't an instantly loveable album. Very few of the best albums are instant; they reveal themselves more as you listen to them, best example being 13. I'm hoping the album is quite dark....

Re: Secret London gig, March 20

Would be interesting to know the venue size, I mean it is being billed as tiny, which is a bit of a concern, as it might mean that lots of people win tickets who are unable to attend! At the same time lots of ways to enter, great bit of publicity to be fair after concerns Go Out had been released an...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/WPCR-16444 I think it's this one. There's another that says 'Import Disc' and costs less, I figure that's the normal version. Thak you very much David, you are a star. Would also add the link you provided does mention the bonus track too, so I'm confident it is the ...

Anyone figured out where it is easy, for those of us not in Japan, to order a Japanese version yet?

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

To be fair I think HP2015 has got to be a tough sell. £80+ for a band that has played there 3 times in the past 6 years, complaints about poor sound at the venue, relatively weak support to sell a venue of that size (although Metronomy are fab, but recently played the Ally Pally so done a large Lon...
