TV Songs / Re: Accoustic Sessions Vol 1
« on: Today at 06:00:38 PM »
An email friend from Western Australia got herself this album (after I recommended it as a good starting point) and she enjoys it. Now I got a new email saying:

"TV Smith's acoustic is excellent for setting things on fire to. "  ;D

To give you some context, here's more info:

In our case we have dried reeds to burn at certain times of year so they're not a summer fire hazard.
Also I gave up on my weed-infested frog pond after three years of trying to weed it after it was left unattended for weeks after I broke my foot. The invasive grass had roots a metre down and kept coming back so I finally sprayed it all out, which means I killed a lot of the bushes around there too but it's actually easier to start again from scratch with plants that are harder for grass to grow into. So a month after poisoning the grass and on a dry day, I burnt the lot. Some of my bushes will re-grow from the base, but I've got other plants to put in the place of things that have been "collateral damage"...

“The new Cure stuff is very emotional,” the iconic frontman revealed to The Sunday Times. “It’s ten years of life distilled into a couple of hours of intense stuff. I can’t think we’ll ever do anything else.”

Hey, good to see it works.

And it only took me 1 month to get your profile back to being able to post... :-[

Same here, I haven't done much on Bandcamp yet (download of a live album I otherwise couldn't get).

I like youtube to share music on the net. For example, when I mention the new Chris Eckman album here, it's good to have a sound example to share (yt or something else)!
I don't really listen to music via youtube. (Once I checked something out via yt, wasn't convinced at first, but did get the album anyway and was surprised at how much better it sounded on my stereo as it did on yt.)

TV has a few albums on Bandcamp. It's not easy to always find what you're looking for, but it's (much) better for the artists than other online outlets.

TV informed via FB:
Here's a round-up of gigs planned so far for the UK if lockdown is eased at the end of the month. 16.07 YORK - Fulford Arms. 17.07 NORTHWICH - Riverside Park Annual Diversion Festival. 8.10 MANCHESTER - Peer Hat, with Richard Strange and The Harveys. 22.10 SHOREHAM-BY-SEA - Duke Of Wellington, with Richard Strange. 23.10 BATH - Bell Inn, with Richard Strange. 17.12 GLASGOW - Audio, with Billy Liar. 18.12 EDINBURGH - Bannermans, with Billy Liar. 19.12 STOCKTON-ON-TEES - NE Volume Music Bar, with Cherry & Peesh. If international travel is allowed I hope to be announcing some gigs in Germany soon too!

I'll just have to forgo the cheap (for me) and easy access to music that the ethernet has provided for me.

They say that "bandcamp" is pretty good to the musicians (sometimes they waiver their fee even).

On the first Friday of every month since March of 2020, we’ve waived our revenue share to help support the many artists who have seen their livelihoods disrupted by the pandemic. Over the course of these 12 days, fans paid artists and labels $52 million dollars, helping cover rents, mortgages, groceries, medications, and much more. If you’re among the nearly 800,000 fans who participated, thank you.

The next Bandcamp Friday will be on August 6th, and we’ll continue to hold those on the first Friday of every month thereafter for the rest of 2021.

If you’ve started to feel guilty about buying music on any day other than Bandcamp Friday, here’s something to keep in mind: on Bandcamp Fridays, an average of 93% of your money reaches the artist/label (after payment processor fees). When you make a purchase on any other day of the month (as 2.5 million of you have since March, buying an additional $152 million worth of music and merch) an average of 82% reaches the artist/label. Every day is a good day to directly support artists on Bandcamp!

Robert Smith has revealed that two new albums by The Cure have been recorded. Smith made the remarks during an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, where he was interviewed alongside Chvrches about their new collaboration, How Not To Drown, which was released yesterday. 

"Probably in about six weeks time I'll be able to say when everything's coming out and what we're doing next year and everything," said Smith. "So we were doing two albums and one of them's very, very doom and gloom and the other one isn't. And they're both very close to being done. I just have to decide who's going to mix them. That's really all I've got left to do."

Thanks Alan G., good setlist, mix of new & old, as we know it from TV!

News from TV on FB:
I'll be playing a 40 minute set for Glastonwick online tomorrow at 5:00pm. It's the nearest we can get to the real thing at the moment. Hope you can make through the sun and mud to your computer!

Obviously he can post now. I changed his profile and Ektaff's now Admin too (for a while at least)!

You Lucky Ones, to have gigs again.

Well I got a phone call last night: rumours about a show in Offenburg in September (limited number of tickets)!  :o

...the events of 2020 brought “the focus, a gift,” allowing him to significantly ramp up his release schedule.

there are six “Official Bootleg” releases on the way as well as instalments 4-7 in Young’s Original Recording Series, including several albums in hi-res.

He also has two unreleased Crazy Horse albums on the way called ‘EARLY DAZE’ and ‘Toast’; a Crazy Horse live album from 2012 and 2013 entitled ‘Live Alchemy’; a live album from CSNY’s 1970-1971 shows at the Fillmore East, including a four-camera video of the show; a Buffalo Springfield box set; an abundance of studio outtakes and concert bootlegs; the third volume of ‘Neil Young Archives’; and eight films.

Obviously the newest member is "Ektaff", so we've found a way to get him registered again... of course his old posts will still be around, but you won't find them easily via his (new) profile.
Happy posting!  8)

Someone has drawn my attention to the fact that user "EKTAFF" can't get online.

So I checked and it looks like his profile has been deleted. Then I checked the Administration log and it looks like it was he himself who did it (unintentionally) - or maybe someone hacked his profile (?)!  :o

Klaus, if you're around, any help would be appreciated.
