You've got one copy more than I have. I was promised a free one from the publisher but it never materialised.

Re: Bands doing TVP covers

I've just stumbled across the fact that Simon Bish & Andy Fonda released an EP of TVP covers back in 2010. Here's their version of "The Silly Things Lovers Do", recorded in poptastic fashion:

Re: Love & Truth

I seem to have developed a bit of an obsession with "Ours Is A Wonderlove World" from "Pure" this week, especially the bit from 4 minutes onwards (the "God is love" bit). I think I've got a crush on the girl singer. :D

Love & Truth

For reasons I can't explain, I've only just heard The Times' "Love & Truth", which was issued as a B-side of the "Manchester" single back in 1989 / 1990. Wow! It's one of the best New Order pastiches I've heard.

Re: The Wonderful World of Ed Ball

Sad But True (mid range) I got a copy off ebay many years ago. I've not listened to it in a while but I seem to remember thinking that it was just ok. Why Do I Need a Gun I'm Chelsea (seems reasonable on ebay) As you probably know, it's a compilation of singles and b-sides from the "Catholic Guilt"...

The Keys - The Keys (LP)

Debut LP from 2003 on Too Pure. I've been listening to a load of Peel shows from the last quarter of 2003 recently and he had this lot in session. I bought their album on the basis of that. They remind me of Gorky's Zygotic Mynci and Teenage Fan Club at their most Byrdsian.

I'm currently reading Sebastian Faulk's "Engleby". I bought it from a charity shop recently as the "make weight" in a 2-for-1 deal.
