I just discovered a few days a go that an Egyptian group called Nuba Nour covered Ready For Drowning for a Record Store Day 7" in 2014. Anyone heard this?

I've tried to find that streaming a few times but never managed.

Jupiter & Beyond by Golem

Now..0:28 sounds very much like Let's Go To War, just a bit faster. I seem to recall Sean mentioned Golem - Orion Awakes as one of his favourite krautrock albums.

This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours is nearly 18 years old. If it was a person, it could legally be supplied with alcoholic beverges in a couple of months' time. I feel old.

Strawberry 23-07-2016 20:39

:o That makes me feel old as well.

Is the B-side of Lifeblood the best in the Manics catalogue?

*considers the B-side of Futurology*

I think it's close.

As for best A-side, that's somewhat more difficult for me to choose.

I'd put the b-sides for YLAINE above the Lifeblood b-sides. My favourite period for b-sides is for This Is My Truth... of all things!
Actually, I'd put the b-sides for Know Your Enemy above the YLAINE b-sides.

mrdavidj 27-07-2016 18:13

I meant B-side as in the second half of the album, or the flip-side of the album on vinyl, rather than b-sides of the singles of the era. Easy mistake. (I did consider saying side 2, and I realise that Generation Terrorists also has two extra sides)

Sean teasing us on Twitter with the vaguest possibility of new material has really made my year.

That is all.

There By The Grace Of God really had some gorgeous alternate versions (St Etienne Remix, Starecase Mix and Acoustic). They just came on one after another following the original on my playlist.

Great stuff.

A bit tenuous, but the guitar in this...

Automatik 27-08-2016 00:33

The odd flat bass blurt that comes in at 3.58 in the Saint Etienne Remix of There By The Grace Of God just makes an amazingly dystopian remix even better.

Borderliner 03-09-2016 23:42

Anyone knows what version is this? When it was recorded and so on?

Nobody 04-09-2016 06:44

Going by this page it looks like the Wales At No 1 2015 concert.

Yesterday, when I was looking at the TV listings on the remote control, I noticed that there was a programme on BBC4 at 8pm called Illuminations: Private Lives of Medieval Kings. Episode 3 of 3. Also, the episode title was Libraries Gave Us Power.
