Pesky new bands on a major label no doubt!
My hearing is better! My hearing has improved! Oh it's one of those good days. So naturally, caing (cane-ing, some sort of drug binge terminology m'lud) the album.
Pinochet was a bastard. What happened to Jara and tens of thousands of others were atrocities. Henry Kissinger was due to stand trail for his involvement but the trial was scheduled on September the eleventh, two thousand and one. So obviously got abandoned.

Anyway, with all that in mind... AITA (am I the asshole?) for going "THEY SAID THE NAME OF THE ALBUM TITLE!!" when the line about Even In Exile (just said as I typed that!) pops up in The Boy From The Plantation?
And not skipped once. From 6 onwards, the music is a lot more not upbeat, but grander than I thought the album would be.

On all the demos that were released, the only lyric across the five songs that was changed was the "Even In Exile" line from Plantation. Originally it was "Even though I died". Imagine if that was the album title!

And I even felt guilty for making a post going "And then he got killlllwed". That levels things a bit. See, for all the time James has known Patrick, imagine if this was made in 1999?!
I really should look at rewriting my own stuff. But then see, I'd never put those four words together.

It's still a great album!

Come on, James, top 5!!! Anyone who hasn't bought their copy yet do so right now!
As for these podcasts what are they, and how does one listen to whatever they are?

So I think the album is pretty great. It's just so uplifting to hear an album like this in these pretty bleak times. I'm hoping the new Doves record will have a similar effect when it comes out next month.

Recuerda I think is my favourite track at the moment. I just love the rush that comes in when the guitar/drums kick-in. Without Knowing The End is fun and feels like the most Manicsy track on the album.

Only disappointment is that I don't really like the album version of FTHOV. I think we were spoiled by the solo acoustic version he did for Absolute as it showed a real tenderness to the song. It's a shame that a lot of that has been stripped out on the album version.

This is the most incredible music JDB has ever produced. He's developed so much as a musician, and he seems utterly unleashed on this album. I absolutely fucking love it.

Just an absolutely stunning album. First album in a long long time that I've felt the need to listen to every day since release. If this is the result of not chasing writing 3 hit singles then I hope James continues that with the Manics, end game Preachers could be the most interesting period of the band musically.

Recuerda, Thirty Thousand Milk Bottles and Santiago Sunrise are my early favourites, but really there's not a bad song on there, such a beautiful record. Same with Patrick's words.

And the podcast has been wonderful, and again I hope the band keep that up for the next album given how many references and touch points they give us. If they'd done one for RIF it would've been fucking incredible. It's why no other band comes close to them for me, after all these years they're still keeping me informed, educated and entertained.

I try and listen to all the interviews with James but this one was a bit too much for me thanks to the interviewer's lack of warmth.

On trial? only in book form ( Christopher Hitchens)...if he had been due to be dragged up for war crimes in an international criminal court.... (which the US doesn't recognise...which is always a good excuse for not appearing)... on 9/11...there would be a whoooole shit pile of new conspiracy theories right there..

(Just looked up the book...there's a preface by Ariel Dorfman, exiled from Chile, who wrote the brilliant play Death & the Maiden....made into a brilliant film...directed now unfortunately by Polanski...but watch it anyway)

That new track on the pod is lovely. Some very weird breaks in it where it sounds like the mp3 is corrupted but i like the rest. I really wish we could legitimately get high quality downloads of this and atacama dust though.

Woah there... that comment seems to be entirely ignorant of her political awakening in the last 4 years. I mean if she's engaging with politics and getting her fans to vote out the GOP death cult for 2020 then that can only ever be a good thing.

Really? She sounded just as engaged as every other interviewer i've listened to with him

His comment was more tongue in cheek about how she likes to take care of the economic side of things...re the whole spotify thing and something else she did that allowed artists to claim royalties owed....He's a fan from what I can remember.....he definitely didn't mean she would have loved nothing more than tea and scones with Pinochet....
