Re: The Beatles!

I finished Tune In last week. Rather than a feeling of accomplishment I feel rather bereft. I can see exactly why their Liverpool fans were so sad to see em make it big. Their loss was the world's gain.

Re: Camera Obscura

Found an old Pitchfork interview which I thought might shed some light. Alas...

"Pitchfork: John left the band after Underachievers, Please Try Harder. Can you talk about why he did?

TC: No."

Re: The Swapsies

Hello. The Manic Pop! single didn't happen. But it didn't get us down, it got us busy! The lovely people of February Records said they'd release it - which they will. On August 5th to be exact. http://februaryrecords.com/ We'll also be making a CD version (with make-your-own-cover stickers no less) ...

Re: Velvet Underground

I don't often post on here, but I couldn't resist! John Cale made some wondrous records in the 1970's - please, please, please check out Paris 1919, it's beautiful. He also made three albums with Island which you can get as a two-disc set called The Island Years, which also has various bits and bobs...

Re: Camera Obscura

Their "schtick" is being wonderful.
Think Traceyanne said on stage they'd been together for 17 years. Is that right? That's pretty amazing if it is.
