Advert

Does anyone have an idea what Damon mumbles in the middle of Advert? Between 2'51" and 2'59"... I'm trying hard but cannot clearly understand (and there's a delay on his voice which doesn't help).
Thanks!

Re: Symbols on the Cover Art of Colours

I think 'Chicken & Fries' is probably what became 'Don't be'. Given the song starts with Damon repeatedly saying "chicken and, chicken and, chicken and friieess". Well spotted! It makes perfect sense. I just don't know how I remembered this unissued track title, it was something I must have read so...

Re: Symbols on the Cover Art of Colours

Yeah, I've been trying to do that some time ago, but without much success... (1) is obviously Ambulance . :P (6) should be Caravan ... For (5), if I remember well, there was an unissued track named Chicken & Fries , could be that... I thought there was one with an obvious character falling into a ho...

Re: The Beatles Thread

Has anyone of you ever cut/pasted Her Majesty into its normal/original place in the medley? It was supposed to be after Mean Mr. Mustard (hence the opening chord of Her Majesty , which is in fact the ending of Mustard ) and before Polythene Pam (hence the brutal stop at the end of Her Majesty which ...

It's indeed 3/4, though the rhythmic patterns of the different instruments make it not so obvious.

Re: Interview with Dave -2015

It writes with a K, apparently: "Damian LeGassick". I had already read somewhere else about this guy's involvement in the production/engineering of 13 (though I remember quite well his name was mispelled in another way, as "Damien Le Gassic" --> I was immediately misled to think he was a Frenchman. ...

Re: Terrapin

Worth noting that Terrapin was recorded with an acoustic guitar and a Telecaster unplugged but with a mic on it. A very bizarre recording technique, but one that was also used for "You're so great" on Blur. I didn't know that was used on You're So Great , but incidentally, a few weeks ago I listene...

Re: Syd Barrett

Did they ever mentioned any closer songs or an album? I think, though not sure, that one of the B-sides of Leisure (was that Berserk ? an instrumental one in any case...) was described by Graham as a kind of mash-up of Barretty guitar tricks. As for Barrett's albums, there are just two of them: The...

Re: Terrapin

I've read that before somewhere.
I've known both songs for quite a long time, and the comparison never sprung to my mind. Now listening again, I can see how one can hear similarities. I still think the two songs have somewhat different atmospheres though.

Re: One Born Every Minute

Clover Over Dover is probably the song I'd most want to hear live out of all the unplayed ones. They never played this one live? There must be a reason for this. :? It was once described by a band member as being too difficult to replicate live, how/why escapes me, I think that was in 3862 Days, bu...

Re: damon needs a dave balfe

It's pretty well analysed in 3862 Days how Balfe wanted to pull the Leisure sessions towards a more baggy sound, despite the band's will to have a more "Barretty" sound. They ended with four different producers on the album, and we all know how much it lacks consistency... So I disagree, Balfe did h...

Re: "The End of the F***ing World" - full soundtrack album

I eventually got to listen to the album. It's really, really good, I find.

Unpopular opinion: my first-listen favs were Sleuth and Lucifers Behind Me. :)
