I once met Mel C. I admit it was intimidating, face to face with the world's most gorgeous, talented, successful megastar sex symbol... But after the initial nerves, she calmed down. (That's a joke. She didn't calm down.)
Mark King, Mark King's father and Mark King's daughter all have diarrhea. Runs in the family.

All of the songs of PF with Richard Wright and David Gilmour. playing so beautifully together, they are the soul of PF.
I thought i was crazy thinking these guys are the most beautiful pairing of guitar and piano, together , not just rock and roll, but any music,including classical music
.David won't ever play Echoes again because Richard is gone, and it is fitting . Barrett is THE storytellerof song ,no one has his combination of beauty, happiness ,love,and magical whimsy, Love Barrett ,for he is stellar ,his imagination,Rick's soul, Nick's heart /pulse,and good old Roger-- he was beautiful before he was angry.

For weird try Connan Mockasin.
For PF modern try
Public Systems Broadcasting
For women, i think, try
Jane Weaver
Josefin Ohrn( the O in Ohrn has a scandinavian line thru it diagonally )
That is alj
We're like kestrels

and David strathairn

A music video with a story. Worth a watch, even if LCD aren't your thing.

^ Yes i watched that new LCD video a week or so back.Reccognised David Straithern (he was great in BBC's McMafia a while back) but didn't realise the woman is Sissy Spacek.So at the end of the video he can save her by entering the portal thing they've/he made?

Got a month's free pass for Apple's music streaming thing and have used it to catch up on a couple of albums the last few days.Chrvches' Love Is Dead album that they released earlier this year.Not sure it's as strong as their Every Open Eye album from 2015 but there's certainly a fair few songs i'm taking to: Graffitti, Get Out, My Enemy, Heaven/Hell and Wonderland and more.

Also, have given Primal Scream's Give Out But Don't Give Up:The Original Memphis Recordings a listen.Apparently these recordings turned up in Andrew Innes' basement.Not sure how they could have been so easily lost for such a long time but hey.Everybody Needs Somebody is a highlight and quite a different version of Rocks.

Had mixed feelings about the Give Out But Don't Give Up album back in the day but the songs remind me of a certain period.

Today's interesting fact about the Spice Girls
The first LP Emma bought was 'The Sound of Music'. The parallels with my life are astounding:
1. The Sound of Music is a musical, and I think musicals are total shit.
2. The Sound of Music is a song by Joy Division, whose bassist later formed Revenge, and I think Revenge are total shit too.
3. The most prominent letter in 'Emma' is M, the first letter of both my names, Melanie C (my favourite Spice Girl OF ALL TIME), Melanie B (my fourth favourite Spice Girl OF ALL TIME) and 'Money' (my 93rd favourite Beatles song OF ALL TIME).
4. Emma's surname is similar to Sandom, who used to kick my head in at school. Sandom took A-level French, which is why I dropped French (my best subject OF ALL TIME) in favour of Latin. The pressure of taking a subject I secretly disliked to university level left me depressed and on the verge of a breakdown. Now I am not depressed because I can think about Emma naked. Or I can keep my clothes on for it. It gets cold on the bus. Further, 'Breakdown' is a song by Grace Jones and Electronic and no Spice Girls.
5. That is the end of today's interesting fact about the Spice Girls. I hope you have enjoyed it.

Watched that horror film Hereditary the other night.Pretty good.Some truly unsettling and chill to the bone scenes but felt the end scene verged on the comical.And then on the closing credits this played.... not sure what the connection was but i enjoyed the song

"Give Out" wasn't as exciting as its predecessor but taken on its own terms it has something alright.
Enjoyed the program that was just on BBC4 about this. I'm not convinced that the 'original' Tom Dowd version is better, and I understand Alan McGee's comments that it may have sounded too thin for 1994. I guess if you want that classic album vibe from the 60s/70s then this might be the one.
Some of the bonus tracks make nice curiosites for the fans. For some reason the version I have downloaded comes with one more track than is listed on Discogs for Disc 2 of the CD release, namely Big Jet Plane (Sitar Version). It seems to be listed on Amazon under the streaming version but not the CD version.

If any UK/Ireland people missed the program it's repeated at 2am tonight.

Yep, recorded the programme earlier and watched it just now.Pretty good watch.Some great footage from back in the day.

Just going through the bonus tracks now, hadn't listened to them previously.Big Jet Plane (Sitar Version) is on the streaming version on Apple Music.Jailbird Guitar is a great little outtake .Also liking Jesus (Monitor Mix).Still to listen to some of the other bonus tracks.


Without listening again to the 1994 release of the album i'm not sure yet which i prefer.Haven't listened to that version in years.Maybe a playlist combining the best from the two different versions of the album might be the way to go for me, though some continuity in feel and vibe could get lost in doing that.

From memory i think i recall the problem i had with Give Out But Don't Give Up was that there was a little too much of the "I've lost my good woman and feel so sad and blue" stuff .Don't get me wrong, something like Everybody Needs Somebody and Cry Myself Blind were great but...I don't know, the Memphis version of the album seems to lay the sad and blue thing on even thicker.But at the same time it's good.


And maybe a bit too much slow turgid funk.

Always liked Rocks and Jailbird though.First heard Rocks when i was backpacking in Israel in 1994.We were in the bar of the hostel we were staying in in Tel Aviv and it came up on MTV (remember those days when MTV used to play music videos?).I thought yeah this is a bloody great party rocker and was then excited and looking forward to the album.I always associate the song with that place and time.
