I hope TV's got some copies on 8th September although it's before the official release.

Went to Amazon (Germany) but in order to log on I have to put in a number code that they phone through.

Unfortunately I forgot the numbers would also be in German and I didn't have enough time to translate them in my head. :)

My own fault for being impatient.

Some of the tracks from the 'Abracadabra' soundtrack were included on 'Ready To Crack' but, as Alan Lee Shaw was on bass for the OST but Nico Mansy is credited on 'Ready To Crack', I don't think they were recorded at the same sessions.

Well, I had a look at (and a listen to) my cd, in the booklet Alan Lee Shaw is mentioned for playing bass on #5, 6 and 7.

Yes. The tracks that were on 'Abracadabra'.

I'm pretty sure 'My Wrists Hurt' with Dave Grunfeld on keyboards goes back a bit further than that. Like about 1979......

Time to start the campaign to get TV Smith on the cover of 'Vive Le Rock' and make his face familiar to millions of TESCO magazine readers.....

 ;)

I may add a #16: Miller produced (Brian James' band) The Dripping Lips' album "Ready to crack?" (released in 1998, recorded a few years earlier).  8)

I believe most of it was recorded shortly after the Original Soundtrack for 'Abracadabra' which the band recorded in 1992 and was released in 1993. As Miller died in 1994 that would seem to make Brian James statement that it was the last thing Miller ever worked on sound believable. Some of the tracks from the 'Abracadabra' soundtrack were included on 'Ready To Crack' but, as Alan Lee Shaw was on bass for the OST but Nico Mansy is credited on 'Ready To Crack', I don't think they were recorded at the same sessions. Incidentally Jimmy Miller is credited with backing vocals on 'Ready To Crack' as well.

09.06.2018 Suburbs, Guildford (with Eddie and the Hot Rods).

Our anniversary weekend.
'The Suburbs' venue is actually the 'Holroyd Arms'.
We've booked a room. They have chalets 'round the back of the pub.
That's handy. :)

I've ordered the album but, unless they are different recordings or remixed, these tracks are the same ones Rat made available through his own website as downloads in 2016.

I'd like to see official releases for the (at least) 20 albums worth of other recordings. ;)

Apart from all the other stuff I've just got tickets to see The Posies at The Garage in October.

Link to pre-order the CD works but link to pre-order the vinyl does not.

Just heard that The Bell Rays are playing at The Railway pub in Southend soon.
I'll be doing that. And maybe the other one at Camden as well.
Last time they played it was at the 02 'bowling' thing and tickets were 25 or something.
This'll be about a tenner I reckon.
Never seen them live despite buying their albums for about 20 years.

Apart from that I've got tickets for The Members, Department S, Eddie & The Hotrods, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, The Wolfhounds, The Mekons and Red Flag 77 which takes me up to about June. Also doing the TV Smith gig in Chelmsford (hopefully).

I'm sure they'll be more between June and Skegness in October.

Went to Southend last night.
My only show on this tour.
Excellent. Tight. And lifted so much by Paul Gray's bass.
Much 'Black Album' and 'Strawberries'. The Paul Gray albums obviously.
But even 'Eloise' sounded good and I hate that song usually. I still went for a piss when they were playing it though. It's my tradition.
Three songs from the new album which is all they're doing from it so far this tour.
Liked all three.
Encores included the rare 'B' side instrumental 'Seagulls'.
And, as a bonus, the final encore was 'Do Anything You Wanna Do' with Barrie Masters on vocals.
I suppose I should have guessed they might do that considering Barrie only lives a mile away.

And Captain referred to them as 'Eddie & The Hot Frogs'. :)
