Re: Classic makeup - first pic?

The Killer cover makeup was the one that did it for me.

Re: Alice Songs You Like More Than Most Other Fans Do

Loads of great songs already mentioned. Some I haven't seen yet: Six Hours - I love how subdued it is, evokes a really desolate sort of vibe, before exploding into the amazing solo at the end. My God - has a grandiose feel, plus some superb lead work. Love Should Never Feel Like This - nice, melodi...

Re: Album opinion change

Not surprisingly with his voluminous back catalogue I goes though phases preferring different albums. Strange as it might seem, if anybody were to ask what my favourite was I would always say WTMN yet I have not listened to it for absolutely ages. Have I changed my opinion, I am not really sure Exam...

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

I liked EOAC which had Ryan playing a big role on the writing side and with Tommy writing his own stuff there would be a talented mix of potential collaborators to lock in a room and write for a new album

Re: Goes To Hell album cover

I remember when GTH came out, the local independent record shop had a massive display of this sleeve covering half the shop window. You could not miss it. Those were the days when an AC release was an event of some magnitude. Shame we didn't get to see a new show and had to wait for the gangster chi...

Re: Alice jigsaws

I'd also like the Hanging from the Killer album or the Group picture in their white suites from the BTB cover. Hundreds of potentials but as Dannorama says, great idea. Like the WTMN one

Re: Duane Hitchings

Following on from Mr. Barlow's question. The two sides of SF are quite different, almost like 2 different records. Was side 1 just stuff they felt worthy of release but wasn't ready from FTF and just used to 'make' a complete lp. In English what I think I am trying to ask is why wasn't side 1 'new' ...

Just thank Mike for his contribution to the Alice story. Special Forces was the first tour I saw and that band will always be special to me

Re: Live at Glasgow '82 - 2lp RSD 20202

I also saw Alice live for the very first time on this tour at the Hammersmith Odeon as it was then. The excitement I felt when the lights grew dim and the music started and the man appeared .... a wow moment for me. After almost 10 years of being a fan this was the real deal. Hidden in my old tape c...

Re: The Making Of Easy Action

I think EA has some pleasant easily accessible tunes on it, more so than PFY and showed a good progression in the song writing. Hold onto your hats for what was coming next

Re: Have you changed your mind?

I remember being quite enthused during the build up to release of ACAS. The concept was interesting and the snippets wetted my appetite. How disappointed was I when spinning it for the first time on its release. Despite subsequent re-listens in the early days I just could not bring myself around to ...

Re: Have you changed your mind?

Excellent post Si. Perhaps the creative tension between MB and BE brought out the best in both but by the time MOL came along they had both had enough. Seem to recall a strange relatively recent comment from MB regarding his level of contributions to recent AC albums saying something like .... " I o...

Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal

Listening to this again after a good while. Love this album, particularly the fabulous guitar work by Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter which would obviously be seen on WTMN shortly afterwards. I am sure it is obvious to the more informed but can anybody please confirm who is left channel and who is righ...

Wagner would have been an interesting choice though Bruce felt he had zero stage presence.
I remember that from Mike somewhere in the distant past. I suppose if Mashbir was an old mate of sorts the transition might have been less painful when replacing Glen.
