Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

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 ...

Really? The problem with "it" being unspoken is, frankly, I have no idea what you might mean and that may be worse than what you're insinuating. Huh? All I'm suggesting is that these are some of his most wonderful songs and his ability to take that point of view is really interesting and,...

yes Top, an unwrap/unbox video would have been a nice treat. WITH voiceover, of course. LOL i'll tune up all the flashlight and telescopic power in house for it's alleged Tuesday arrival via Amazon. and I guess this is the first(?) ever Lillian tribute. sweet touch in these days for certain. :)

Re: The Complete Armed Forces (Super Deluxe Edition)

The box is gorgeous. The expanded liner notes are great. It feels like they are in dialogue with both his previous liner notes and Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink, which he references a few times within. It feels like a real celebration of the record. I hope there is enough demand for a Get...

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

I think it's a very good album. But strangely enough, after every listen, I don't feel much urge to listen to it again soon. I almost have to force myself a few days later. Nor do I feel like I want to play it to other people. Maybe it hit me at the wrong time (that sometimes happens with albums), ...

Apple Music says "Busy Bodies (Alternate Version)" has a track length of 2:59, while it was about 3:45 on the Rhino Armed Forces . Is it a different alternate version or just an error on Apple Music? It turns out the track labeled "Busy Bodies (Alternate Version)" is actually &q...

You are right...i should have seen it coming. I was similarly stupidly amazed when it was the first song played to start 1982 in NYC!! i remember then being angry that I didn't figure PLU would be the one, just like now.
