Have to say I was really disappointed with Duncan Reid's new CD. The 3rd CD was really good which made up for their 1st 2 which had a couple of great songs but nothing else. The new one starts well with 3 good songs but after that all we get is weak wimpy pop. Hard to believe that such a great live band can put out something so poor. Duncan's vocals are awful, he sounds like he's auditioning for Supertramp.

I have to admit: I haven't listened to Duncan's cd on my stereo (yet), it just seems to me it was made to be listened to while driving my car!  :o

What I don't like about it: some tunes seem "not really new", they remind me of older songs (plus one is a blatant rip-off, I encourage everyone to discover it themselves).

The new one starts well with 3 good songs but after that all we get is weak wimpy pop.

I'd had the same impression with the 3rd one ("Bombs away")... which included quite a few weak pop songs (to my ears).

he sounds like he's auditioning for Supertramp.

He always sung like that, even for The Boys (who now struggle to deliver those vocal parts live).

Finally I've been able to listen to The Sinclairs. (Last track sounds a bit like The Shadows meet Ennio Morricone!  ;D )

Other than that, I've been digging out old vinyl: Stiv Bator (Disconnected 10"), Neil Young (After the Goldrush)...

I've found myself playing through the recorded outputs of several bands recently.

The Lurkers two weeks ago - always good fun whatever version of 'the band' you hear.

Last week it was The Runaways - far better in their early glampunk days than the more metal later stuff. I also watched the 'Edgeplay' documentary again last night. Parts of it are really heartbreakingly sad.

Looks like Wire this week - first two albums and associated demos/live recordings so far...

This week, and for the last couple of weeks, I've been playing mostly Ennio Morricone.

Needed cheering up and felt nostalgic, so lots of classic Sweet for the last couple of days.

Still love The Sinclairs, very cool.

Other than them, I've been listening to The Dead Boys, Replacements, Keith Richards, Hugo Race, Calexico and others.
