you can pick one up here - http://www.howdoesitfeel.co.uk/shop.html

i'll be sending the first few orders out today, and then the rest on monday, as i'm away tomorrow.
There'll be enough of these, right? I'll only be living at this address for a couple of weeks, so I don't want to risk missing it. But I certainly don't want to see them all gone in a month when I live in my new home!

EDIT: never mind, I'm not patient enough; just ordered my copy.

Playing the LP now. Big Grin. The CD looks lovely. And so far it sounds great - they've managed to capture that sparkling pop sound that they have when they play live. Ooooooh, real BRASS. Oooooh, nice.

It's a bit late to post this, but I have a bootleg of them at Indie Tracks last year if anyone wants it.

Promise!

You gave me a DVD at Christmas Twee, just before you fell off your chair!

There are two songs in the set I didn't recognise so can someone tell me the titles?

song #5 starts with some style council-esque organ and the line "i didn't want to read the news today"

song #6
has an eight beats in the bar guitar part and has a line about "a bus stop conversation in a West Country town".

unless the words are something completely different, me ears may have been alight

The first one is Not Going Out, I believe. Is the second one Cross the Line?

I believe that one is called 'Fleeting moments'. It is full of wonderful lines, isn't it?

Not Cross the Line, a different one. It might well be Fleeting Moments, from what I can make out. Does that have the middle eight:

I'm forensic by design
On the soppy seas, a magic trick that kills himself
To find out how it's done
And then I'm always let down


But I need to hear it on a Memorex

Just looked at the lyric booklet with the album. It's Fleeting Moments.

Yes, we know you've got the album already. Stop showing off.

I'm so relieved to discover that the phrase "young lady" in 'Cross the Line' has actually got inverted commas round it. I always thought that seemed really out of place, but now I've seen the lyric sheet with the album it's obviously the ticket guy who's saying it. Doh! Andy, if you could do air quotes every time you play it live from now on please - thanks.

Album is beautiful, by the way. Well done. :)

I'll listen to the album when I get back to Belfast tomorrow. It should cure the Post-Popfest blues. And as I was saying to Ian etc. over the weekend, we've got to make a Belfast show happen!

This album's a right bit of stuff, isn't it? I love it.

Completely agree with your words about the album on Layer of Chips, Sam.

I know I'm sort of biased, but that's exactly how this record makes me feel....everything's on there.

I listened to the album on the drive home from popfest. From first moment to last, it's a corker. Excellent stuff!
It is no coincidence

I hadn't been this ridiculously excited about a new album since, I don't know, Fold your hands? And it is even better than I thought it would be. It's hard to believe it's true, it is.
