1999 Double Album is getting re-issued this year and there is a UK tour to promote it…
Wow ! Nobody cared back then, what are they expecting ?
I was one of the few people that loved this album when it came out.
As such I excitedly got a ticket for the Tunbridge Wells show (great venue by the way); and dusted off my CD copy of Everything Picture, which hadn’t been listened to for years.
It is not as good as I remember. The Gary Glitter bits in Stay Young
Still, Floodlit World is an absolute tune:
I care! They were superb, even if the album has a bit of filer and excluded some of their best tracks.
I thought they were great then and still great now!
Floodlit World (FP Version) - YouTube The original version was even better.
I very very much care about this and you’ve reminded me to get a ticket (saw it on FB just before Xmas I think), so thank you! Everything Picture is a somewhat-maligned, mostly-forgotten yet utterly fantastic album, and the attendant singles + B-sides are even better. Also, their second album Play For Today (2012) is also magnificent and well worth anybody’s time.
Here’s my random favourite track; I particularly love the “depraved Stereolab” breakdown section:
I’m amazed he is still alive to be honest
The ultrasound guy!
I should hope so! Only 3 songs from ‘Everything Picture’ there. Also, get ‘Best Wishes’ in the set!
Everything Picture should have been a single album, with Best Wishes and I’ll Show You Mine on it. I do like them though, the second and third albums were great.
I was kinda hoping for an “Everything Picture” full album show, but hey, I’ll take it
So was i! I kinda thought it would be ‘Everything Picture’ as well as non-album single and B-sides.
That’s very much what the tour was advertised as.
Guess I should probably listen to their other albums eh?
The gig in Glasgow scheduled for 28 August 2021 has now been cancelled.
Yep, I believe band decided to consolidate the tour in light of concerns about COVID. Now just doing MCR and LDN.
