@Rich Got a Fish CD single with a live cover of Faith Healer TSAHB - classic vibes

Takes me back a bit... possibly 30 years!

Yes, and that's a cracking version too! B-side of Big Wedge if memory serves?

The new album from The Lovely Eggs dropped onto the doormat today. 

It will be in heavy rotation in the coming days. 

 

 

Great band! They are one of the gigs I would have went to but for COVID... tickets valid for new date. I will take a listen later - streaming is banned during work hours st home.

Yeah! Glad to hear from another Egg fan. Every album comes with a handwritten note, their wrists must be so sore!

Frankie Goes To Hollywood:

Superb album

Agreed!

I've got it, plus Reload! Frankie: The Whole 12 Inches, and the Relax EP. 6 different versions of Relax in total. Love the mix names.

It was, of course, just called Relax on Pleasuredome. So I have:

Relax - original mix

Relax - New York mix (12" extended original mix)

Relax - Ollie J mix

Relax - Jam & Spoon Trip-O-Matic Fairy Tale mix

Relax - Jam & Spoon Hi N-R-G mix

Relax - Trip Ship Edit

That's an awful lot of mileage for one song!

I was going to post the official video of Relax, but it's very NSFW, so didn't. Easy enough to find on YouTube for those interested.

Frankie are pretty much the band of my teen years and any time I play their tunes it takes me right back. Still sounds fresh and exciting. As it happens I watched several of their TOTP appearances on YT a few days ago and it all came rushing back. Great band. Happy times.

I was a big FGTH fan at the time. For me, they were a breath of fresh air.

I thought they were a really talented bunch, but will probably be remembered (incorrectly, IMO) solely as the product of Trevor Horn, his Fairlight and array of session bods. A listen to the early demos pre ZTT/Trevor Horn/Paul Morley show the songs were there and the playing well up to scratch.

I saw them live on the Liverpool tour and to this day it’s one of the best gigs I’ve seen. And, yes, they were perfectly capable of playing their instruments!!

yes, I remember hearing the 'Relax' demo back then... I expected it to be rubbish from all the stories I heard. Yes the production was nowhere near as good, but the playing and arrangement was there. But mega-producers like Horne work how they work..... and get the results.

I hear Billy Nomates quite a bit on 6music, and it’s all really good stuff. Same goes for Sleaford Mods of course!

Despite Sleaford Mods having sung her praises for months now this is the first time I’ve heard her, love it!

I listen to AFI all year round, but their "spooky" era is particularly appropriate for this time of year
