Anyone going to their show tomorrow night in London?

I'd be interested to hear if they play a new song, as they should be in the middle of writing/recording the new album.

Was listening to KYE (+B-sides) today and shocked myself by enjoying Wattsville Blues far more than usual. Though I'd still like it more if the vocal had been all JDB.

In fairness to Nicky, I really like his vocals on Locust Valley though.

The opening of Death Of A Digital Ghost is abominable.

Just listening to GT and it is astounding to remember that New Art Riot, GT, GATS, THB and EMG were all released within a period of six years, yet with such utterly divergent musical styles and aesthetics, and outstanding creativity.

To put this period and its prolific shifts in context: six years ago, the band released National Treasures, and we were just finished with PFAYM.

I think their divergivity (listen you just have to type random letters in a word format on the tinternet for it to become a word) and aesthetics are behind their longevity....the very thing that ironically finishes off the careers of many bands and artists so quickly. Labels and media seem to like to have a package they can fit you in with a slapped on label

That's very much how it works - it can lose a band a larger fanbase in the short term, but gains them respect over a longer period.

In case anyone wondered, here's the time between each studio album:

GT > GATS: 498 days
GATS> THB: 435
THB > EMG: 631
EMG > TIMTTMY: 848
TIMTTMY > KYE: 918
KYE > L: 1324
L > SATT: 918
SATT > JFPL: 743
JFPL > PFAYM: 491
PFAYM > RTF: 1093
RTF > F: 294
F > RIF: 1369

Between KYE and Lifeblood there was FD and LT, of course, and GSTM between Lifeblood and SATT, so RIF really is by far the longest we've ever had to wait for new original material.

The chart stats website entry for the band ends in 2011 with National Treasures, while the Official Chart Website ends in 2014.
I loved the mathematics of how many weeks.
But if GSTM is being counted does their World Cup song break the silence between releases?
Probably not. I liked the stats anyway. They stopped making Guinness books due to lack of interest some years ago.

I included God Save The Manics because it was a collection of original material* whereas the World Cup song should have been included but because it's abominable I desperately wanted to forget it exists.

*Specifically, b-sides intended for unreleased Lifeblood singles.

I concede a weakness for statistics. Apologies.
