Re: Flush the Fashion 40th Anniversary

Really liked the album at the time but it quickly faded for me leaving only Talk Talk, Clones, Pain (absolutely love that track as it was real Alice to me) and Grim Facts as tracks I continued to play. Great to hear though that for those who came to Alice around or after this time it means more than...

Re: Small insight on the financials

You are confusing two different things. Meet and greet (fleece) cons the fan into thinking the artist gives two shits about them. They care only about your $. It's sad and the least rock n roll thing anyone could do. I don't know who is more pathetic the artist or the punter. The dam n thing nearly...

Re: Small insight on the financials

I'm guessing the meet and greet income would all be to Alice's so another top up on his pay check. Strikes me that if you can get this kind of gross income from what I'm guessing is a pretty small venue you still have a pretty profitable touring product even at this level and potentially another rea...

Small insight on the financials

Thought this might be interesting to folk like me who like the stats.

Re: New 10” record

You could well be right. Still, it's good to see the variety. Just back from my holidays and it was surprising but great to hear Who's Laughing Now and then The Sound of A on what sounded like a local Dutch radio station.

Re: New 10” record

I like it. A nice flat out rock E.P. Some of it reminds me of Iggy Pop. We are really getting a treat this year. New tour production with a great setlist and new music out of the blue. Can't argue with that. Great to see a variety of different recordings coming out in a short space of time (Phil Ca...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Poison is a well-written song compared to the majority of songs from that era, but even it is still lacking in musical integrity to me. I’d love to never have to hear it or the rest of the Trash again. Always bathroom break time when that comes around. Interesting how people like to make all these ...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Mary Ann is a steaming pile all of its own. Understood the humour of it but always put it at the bottom of the pile of the ACG era next to Sun Arise which I have never got at all. Bed of Nails has always been a favourite from that era. It's a point in time thing. BDB sounds awful to a lot of folk in...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Now booked Paris on the strength of the reviews so far and the atmosphere from the Paranormal Live album. Delighted to have My Stars in the set AND Bed of Nails. Surprised about Teenage Frankenstein but its good to see something from left field. Is there a list of all the songs that have never been ...

Re: Rise - First reviews

the love of music and creativity are the devices which can lead you to wealth. I've yet to meet an artist, actor, musician who DIDN'T want to be successful and wealthy. The Clash. Mick Jones has a net worth of 25 million. Joe Strummer at time of death had a new worth of 4 million Point made but thi...

Re: Rise - First reviews

So anyway, it appears that the majority on here are in favour of Rise, recognise it as a positive move for Alice and think it's some of his best work for quite some time, whether as a solo project or not. I've seen the HV twice now, once in Glasgow and once in Italy. Both were really enjoyable and v...

Re: Rise - First reviews

Dadascot speaks sense. The argument over this is worthless. Alice is involved in a project, similar to Peter and the Wolf or whatever else he has done outside the confines of the Alice Cooper show that he tours and records albums under but not outside the confines of Alice Cooper the individual who ...

Yep. You gotta be realistic nowadays. If the album gets 100k plus globally it would probably be ok nowadays.

Re: Kimmel live

Definite missed cue but after that I thought the track was excellent. Heroes was surprisingly good with JDs voice coming through loud and clear and JP doing a fine job too. As for Alice on guitar...he was strumming away at a ridiculous speed sometimes. If he is playing then give it volume and make i...

Re: Rise - First reviews

I remember saying in 2017 that I would wait and see how HV evolves to see if it has legs as a real band. It absolutely does! Love the album. Listened twice through on a plane so didn't get the full production but the music is certainly there and I got a few major surprises. I wasn't expecting Congra...
