They're all on Youtube. 8-) Here's one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFOCnX1Q9VM" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I don't think the next album's going to be as dark and dirty as A+E.
oh yeah I´ve heard those 8-)

secretly I wanted something a bit more like Spinning Top , that album it´s a gem and I feel that it´s a bit underrated
So underrated! Graham's my favourite guitarist, but even still the music he came out with for that record blew my mind! Such a peach of an album!

Is it me or is there a faint human figure on this sleeve, maybe two or three? There's definitely one anyway. Anyone know what this is?

I just compared them and the one on the back cover walking furthest to the left looks like the main figure on the OYO cover except here its stretched.

Yes, it's from that shoot in Iceland isn't it. You would hardly know though!

He had a minder, but he's got now best friend, almost a brother, who also happens to take care of him and look for his security when Damon is on duty. :D

I've met Smoggy a few times, he's a really nice guy and I'm not just saying that because we're fellow Midlanders. Wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of him though! :lol:

I'm a bit interested in this release, 1997's 'Talk About Life'

Image

It seems to be pinpointed as a bootleg or unofficial, and yes its certainly not a Food/EMI release, but it appears it was released by the promotional record label of the people who hosted the interview, PopView, so I'm not sure if it is compltely unofficial, i.e. a straight out illegal release.
