The jazz era? Or maybe MSP go Gospel? Or perhaps the Soca phase?! That would be novel.

Ehehe. Old or new, I welcome whatever they do. ;)

I turned over and was half an hour into a repeat of Start Trek, "Spock's Brain" in fact, and I had the TV on mute while listening to the Gate album.
If you focus on Scottie, you can pretend it's a concept video.
At one point, Kirk, Dr. McCoy and Scottie fell down after taking to women at desks.
That really fitted in with "Life Becoming A Landslide".

Another thought is that my ears need cleaning as listening to GATS, SATT and JFPL back to back at times, even in higher volume, it sounded like they had overdubbed someone zipping and unzipping the zip on a plastic coat!

And lastly, how would you feel if the Manics appeared in a music channel programme called "Still Got It" alongside Thomas Dolby, Beverly Knight and Sir Paul McCartney?

But if you've still got MASK Manics stuff, carry on!

Fine, as long as I could mute and blur out McCartney.

Today, I saw a car that had JBD on the number plate. So close. :p

Back in the neighborhood where I used to live previously (Jangwi-dong, Seoul), there was a restaurand with JBD in its name and it always made me smile every time. :)

Temporary forum game:
Let's build an (anti-)love songs playlist for Valentine's Day.

Let's start with the most obvious....

You Love Us

Your turn.

Love Torn Us Under

Dac X Lee 13-02-2017 23:12

Love's Sweet Exile.

The only times it was longer between studio albums were:
Know Your Enemy - Lifeblood (1324 days)
Postcards From a Young Man - Rewind the Film (1093 days)

... and both of those gaps were punctuated by the release of compilations. If you include those compilations, then we're now in the longest gap between full-length releases in the band's history.

Something I just realised.



TIMT 1998? to KYE 2001? Must be something like that

Edit : 917 days

Was googling The Chamber and came across this:

https://companycheck.co.uk/company/O...ies-house-data

Never heard of this before, can anyone shed some light?

The guitar in the demo for Black Square really suits this cloudy/rainy pre-spring scenery from the windows of the subway train (doesn't only go underground).

Perfect day to listen to Lifeblood

They're probably just companies set up to administer earnings/property for the band.

When I worked in radio, loads of presenters had similar things set up. So the company paid their "company," which in turn paid them.

Further to that, they're each listed under different companies - eg. https://www.insidermedia.com/insider...cording-studio
