The tracks may be greyed out but - for me at least - the entire album is playable on Spotify (UK). LOL.

I wouldn't be surprised if on monday we have damon in his ice cream van outside some record shop.

this time, we can't really complain about the promotion.

So, this album and I we introduced us to each other and had a fantastic afternoon. (Also, it was on playing There Are Too Many of Us when I entered my local record shop and Ghostship when I walked out with it in my hand.

Played it once in its entirety, than again while reading Graham's talk through in the NME. Then went back to the songs that stuck out the most for me, and played them over and over again (My Terracotta Heart, Ghostship, Pyongyang, Spaceman etc...). I see the beginning of a long, deep and very intense relationship.

Also, when I listen to Ong Ong with the volume all up, I have visions of me dacing and singing along to this and to the setting sun in Hyde Park. And I don't even have tickets (yet?).

In all honesty, I think Damon singing the "... my terracotta heart..."-bit of MTH might be one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard.

Anyone noticed the policemen lyrics in the The Magic Whip's booklet? Are these alternative lyrics for Ice Cream Man or lyrics of another song which didn't make it onto the record?
