"5 A.M." from David (I always thought he was called 'Dave'?) Gilmour's new solo album begins with the same sound filter effect the EMG album begins with. (But no sound of water, and at least EI:BP is a song!)

I once read an interview with him where he said that he prefers to be called David.

Mind you, nobody's calling James "Jim" so maybe the two different acts have more in common with their singers preference for how their name is pronounced!

Surely it must only be a matter of time before Gwenno and the band collaborate on something? I'd settle for guest vocals on a new track, a Gwenno remix of any Manics track, or a Manics version of an existing Gwenno song...

Never heard some of the Lifeblood demos that are on Youtube before! Solitude Sometimes Is in particular is very good. They're not very different, but still worth a listen if you've never heard them before.

That is good. One abiding criticism I have of Lifeblood is that the production sounds rather tinny and weak at times (a la the Stone Roses' debut album). The demos sound much meatier.

Thanks for the find.

What is slightly bizarre, perhaps especially for us Manics fans, is apparently she secretly found out she had cancer over six years ago, which would put it right about the time Jackie Collins' Existential Question Time was released to the public. Which is kind of grimly ironic, having a song called that, as she must have been questioning the existential herself at the time. Obviously if it was a secret the band couldn't have known, just another one of those weird cosmic coincidences.

Oh my, I'd freak out if I were her.
May she rest in peace.

Thumbs down Jackie Collins Existential Question Time

Time for Jackie Collins Existential Question Time: If a married man f***s a pig, and his wife dies without knowing, does it make him a bestialist?

Remember when Nicky said You Love Us, Masses Against the Classes and Let's Go to War are a trilogy? That was a good laugh.

I wonder if the dude(tte) who keeps rounding up the Manics Velindre fundraising total will be back soon to take care of the 11 cent total.
