Surely the FD album is nearly at a Platinum status now after 8 years of sales? (That's 300,000 sales). Great news about Postcards shifting 5,000 last week, that's about 11,000 in the last fortnight then!!! If it wasn't for the mass christmas market then it'd be in the charts still,easily.

Releasing in September/October does have its benefits for a band like them - still early enough to get a decent chart position and late enough to remain in casual fans' conciousness to be picked up as a stocking filler.

The scariest is The Singing Ringing Tree. Especially if you turn down the colour to black and white which is how it was shown originally in the uk.

Good choices apart from She's In Fashion. Good to see he picked The Power as it's an album track whereas the other songs are singles and a b-side.
