It's a batch of lyrics that was written between KYE and Lifeblood as a proposal for an album. It was based around lyrics about cities (surprise!). The idea was never fully realized but some songs have materialized over the years. Cardiff Afterlife was first, and Tokyo Skyline is another confirmed one I think. Hard to know about the others though I'm sure others here have better memories than I do.

Can we ask James to start playing the guitar parts for ADFL and YSTS live again. Just a pet hate of mine.

Also, why has he never sung the last chorus in masses correctly? Does he not remember the line? Like the like?

Given that age has changed James’ voice and he can no longer reach higher notes without sounding strained, why have the band never done the sensible thing of playing songs like “You Stole The Sun From My Heart” in a lower key?

Are you the question-asker on the day or just someone who'd like to ask a lot of questions? In other words - have any of these got any chance of being asked?

I'd imagine James is like me and sensitive to key changes in songs - the song is the key and the key is the song. I did see him play Motorcycle Emptiness in D once when he had a cold, though.

Just to add to this there was also a 'seasons album' - which is why we have on SATT, Autumnsong, Winterlovers, The Indian Summer and.... err... maybe a missing Spring song?

I forgot to write a question on my ticket order lol so -
TUVL was inspired by ABBA, one of the greatest pop bands of all times. Which current pop artists do you like?

Not an album, just the four intended songs.

Ask them would they ever do a live set of songs based on painters or artists? Going all back to La Tristessa Durera.

I wonder, was it perhaps because they had a problem bouncing the tracks for the final mix? Boing!

(This is not a question I wish to be asked, seriously. Please ask the Lifeblood one.)
