Fine by me. Still have my VHS player - they told me to get rid of my record player and then cassettes and look! They're back !

Would love to hear this sullen Welsh heart again in the acoustic slot. And facing page: top left ..tho James said he struggled to breathe thru that one

Just one? Oh god, i hate choices like this. One bread, one milk, one food, that's all...

All those previously mentioned, obviously. Particularly intravenous agnostic - yes please.

On my current odyssey through their b-sides and non-album songs i'd have to say too cold here, i think that'd be perfect for the acoustic slot but they ignored the public vote to put it on lipstick traces so no chance.

“Sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their heads”, naturally?

(Or ill-tempered sea bass at the very least… it’s a start).

joking aside I still have a VHS player too, and actually used it within the last ten years (!).

Paradoxically it was evidently useful, and consequently the lyric is not entirely successful in that regard, ironically making it more true than if it had been been accurate in the first place. It’s another complicated illusion!

Pretty happy with my lot, but never did get to see Girl Who Wanted to Be God. Naturally it was on the setlist for the one show I wanted to go to and couldn't!

Gutted to have missed Condemned to rock n roll on the free occasions it's been played. Bring it back for the Bath gig, please!

I'm also one who wants to see a bunch of Know Your Enemy be and Lifeblood tracks given a live outing. Loads of Futurology songs that are just fucking wasted having not been played live.

That's definitley Picturesque. For me Picturesque is in their top 3 with Tolerate and ME. Just so soooooo incredibly icy and sad. A song with Richey lyrics about the Soviet Union with Lifeblood sound? Pinch me, am I dreaming? As a child of the soviet union and a Lifeblood fan this song just Venn diagrams my soul to pieces. And by god the chorus just soars above an abyss. To hear it live would be incredible.

I'm new here. Hello to everybody.

A track I've never heard MSP play live and would love to but they don't and likely won't:

There By The Grace Of God.

Welcome to the forum! Good choice.
I'm hoping Complicated Illusions stays in the setlists, but will probably go the way of Walk Me To The Bridge.

It happens to all the lead singles off recent albums... It's not War, Show Me the Wonder, Walk Me to the Bridge, International Blue.... After the official tour of the album they're from, they're the only off that album that stays in the set for the subsequent album's tour. And then they disappear and are gone forever.
