Re: That's How You Got Killed Before

I got a good tale about this one. The 5 nights on Broadway 1986 were so immense. Night 2 was solo/Confederates. This song got its sixth ever outing that night, which helped bring the amazing tally to TWENTY THREE songs that i never saw played before, despite it being my 19th EC show that evening. Th...

Re: Elvis sings I WISH IT WOULD RAIN

The No Flag b-side is the same recording, but the volume was boosted somewhat at the beginning to balance it out a little. The facebook post started really quiet - it might have added to the overall effect though - maybe they should have left it alone. This would have been a great single back then,...

Re: Almost Blue

AND in addition to the song reference, "The Other Side Of Summer" has the lyric at the end about "the mightiest rose." EC avoided having overt title tracks until ATUB and then he got on a kick of having them more often than not! PFM, FTS, TDM, TRIR, NR, WUG, HC as opposed to Bru...

i know the answer to this...WILL A KIND HEARTED SOUL burn me disc 11 to a cdr, with some cheesy John Harle artwork (preferrably colour!!) AND mail it to your bronxapostle for all the brilliant analogue pleasure he has provided you for 30 plus years now??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Never boring, Benny,always truly interesting. I loved the Jam, never really got Style Council (too set in the mould of all those 80s "pretty boys" bands) and have never really investigated the solo material other than the obvious ones. I think I saw him live in 1984 in Cornwall but doesn'...

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

I didn't spring for that triple SC new greatest hits Sulky. Way too pricey for nothing really previously unavailable. Two tracks, as far as I can make out. A mildly interesting demo of 'My Ever Changing Moods' with some added strings - sounds like they are real strings as opposed to Mick doing some...

Re: The Complete Armed Forces (Super Deluxe Edition)

Well, I must say, as current deluxe boxes go, this one is rather cheaply made. Everything is cardboard, unvarnished and loose. The outside colours look as if they're fading already (after 3 days in my house). A school-folder to hold a loose bunch of singles and 10" records together? No ribbon ...
