I know. It's all good.But I'd trade my Riff After Riff for your Coupled With any day of the week, my friend.

On Riff After Riff, they apparently didn't have a copy of "Return To Zero" on hand when they were laying out the CD, so they called someone who they'd given a demo-tape of it to and had them play it while holding their cell phone up to the speaker, and then just shot it right from the phone to the CD. Or something.


That sounds a bit bonkers but since we're talking about one of the most lovably illogical bands ever it's probably true. ;)

There ain't any reason for you to feel alone, now you've joined up with the enlightened masses :)
And there's quite a few American fans on the board as well, so you've got some closer neighbours :)

Although I'm sure if you plan a trip over to Blighty, you'd be welcomed with open arms!

Have fun!

Andy


Thanks Andy, I appreciate it. I've been listenening to the live shows on the Paranoid Squirrel podcast, wishing I were there!

Does anyone else think that Plastic Jebus has White Zombie style undertones?

A few other people have mentioned it in posts as well as some online reviews.

You know, after countless listens I've only just noticed that there's a vocal in the outtro to Chutzpah! of what I assume is 'Ooooooh, here I am' (in response to 'if they don't know you're alive' I guess)

Up until now I've just thought it was some synth / instrument sound.

When I say countless listens - I think I've actually listened to it pretty much EVERY DAY whilst sat bored at work.

Here's a clue to that Mattie: think Simon and Garfunkel.

Aha! TOLBINY. I'd heard the vocals in the background but hadn't made out that they were actual lyrics, thought they were just 'aah's. Good spot, both of you. The song's played at a pivotal moment in the movie Garden State too, if people are still needing clues. :)

Also does it seem to anyone else that the twinkling synth notes that emerge in the background of the same section are a nod to/ lift from the strings in the bridge/chorus of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb?

Ahh I'd never heard that song before, or really much by them at all.
Shameful, I know.

It's a pretty fine song actually.

Reminds me more of 'Watermelon in Easter Hay' by Zappa.

Quite high and back in the mix, I thought it was synths, then I thought it was vocal 'aahs' at first. The words 'Here I am' can be heard first time at 4 mins 18 secs to about 4.26, then at 4.51 again, same duration, then at 5.24 for last time during fade-out. Those are the times on my CD player anyway.

Finally recovered my Japanese release from the Singapore post system yesterday. The unheard song that jumps out at me is "All That Zen". Fairly up tempo with a live-the-day type message. I'm still struggling with time changes in the chorus, but I'm sure I'll get it eventually. I would have been happy to loose one of maybe two tracks on the album in favour of this song.....but I suppose that's a fairly predictable thing for anyone to say :roll:
cause the chances are good that it wont let you down, like maybe drinking with Keith, or seeing Dolly Parton's tits...
