Re: Detroit Stories #1 in Germany

13,000 physical sales in the US gets a no1, changed days indeed. People just don’t consume music like they used to, unfortunately, a pretty clear justification of why the compilation of the charts had to change or risk being almost totally redundant With the ability to copy digitally changed everyt...

Convinced this was optimised for oled and probably qled as i am not feeling the complaints (or minor bug) at all about the colours. It looks fricken fantastic on oled
Couldn’t say it enter myself. Watched it for a third time last night. Loving it!

Re: Detroit Stories Review

Is it just me or are the press reviews for this album the strongest for years? Certainly seems to be more 8,9 and 10 scores and some really strong commentary. An album for the neutrals?

Re: New OG Album

Loving this song order! If this hypothetical album had been released and marketed as a "reunion" record for the original lineup, how would it have fared? What would the reaction have been? Would it have been considered: a) a flop and a missed opportunity like The Stooges "The Weirdness"? b) an enjo...

Re: Detroit Stories #1 in Germany

Germany #1 confirmed on the official site now. Irrespective of sales volumes nowadays and where the album may be next week its always good to have a #1 on your track record and Germany is a pretty good market to have it in.

Just announced as No. 4 in the UK. Pleased with that and highest position since Hey Stoopid.

Re: New OG Album

The flow on this playlist is better for me. Im not a big fan of most of the tracks apart from Fireball and the Sound of A but this context lifts them a little for me. I simply can’t take to Cold Cold Coffin but you are right in that it is closest to the songs you mention. That said, the Sound of A f...

Re: Detroit Stories Review

Likely to dip a little by the end of the week unless the promo work and BBC2 airplay really pushes it along but a top 5 looks like a good bet.

Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

I’m going to focus on the positive and hope the work on the new album brings them all even closer together to produce a real gem.

Re: Toyah& Robert - Sunday Lunch

I thought Alice and Cheryl’s response to the clip being shown at the band meet was hysterical. They had absolutely no idea how to take it.

I’ve watched about a dozen of these clips and enjoyed them all.

Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

“The reaction or more the non-reaction from Alice and (particularly) Bob”

I’m sure Bob actually mumbled a “no it wasn’t” or something like that response a few seconds later at the end of another point he was trying to make.

Re: A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris DVD / Blu-Ray release

Now that’s the right atmosphere for a gig. Great energy, great band, great filming and great overall. New album, on Friday, band meeting last night and this today. A real treat.

Re: Detroit Stories Review

Completely disagree with the diehard “career’s been over for decades” folk. The fact we are here proves the longevity. The ACG era would be long buried in the desert without the solo career. Since you refer to us as 'diehard' I'm not certain you completely disagree. If it wasn't for Alice's solo ca...

Re: Detroit Stories Review

I need to stop getting sucked into reading and contributing to the pre release threads as they keep putting me in wrong frame of mind and completely ruin the build up. I didn’t want a nostalgia trip back to Detroit or a bunch of old guy songs. I way prefer the new material even if it’s a bit hit and...

Re: A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris DVD / Blu-Ray release

If it was a special thank you it would be up on YT for free. My guess is it helps boosts sales on an album when some fans have openly said they don't want more covers or for folk that did not like Breadcrumbs. Either way it'l be something to have a ton of beers to and watch on Friday night Precisel...

Re: I Hate You

I’m avoiding the clips and will wait until the album arrives or until it lands on Spotify, whichever comes first. I’ve been unsure about this release since it was announced and I’ve decided to put my concerns aside and give it a serious listen. Again, it’s all about personal choice, I’ve got great a...

Uber Eats Ad - Youtube

Will never understand this ad but at 2:20:43 into it we get Alice’s first performance on a concertina. Weird but mildly enjoyable. https://youtube.com/watch?v=73u8pED1wFo&feature=share
