Does anyone still do mash-ups?
Bass? Which bass?

The non-existent one, clearly. I suppose you could mash-up Nicky's backing vocals, electric guitar and acoustic guitar tracks from IKTZ with James' and Alex Silva's bass guitar parts from TGW though.

Greg Haver did drums on both, mind.

Obviously he's trying to serve the songs, but still, I just assumed he'd throw in some hot licks or something.
I think this is James living out a sortof 'Bruce Springsteen' fantasy he'd had for a bit

Giving it a listen this afternoon and I'd forgetting how beautiful it can be.
I'd rather have new Manics material, but this is a fine album.

Great Sunday afternoon album. Soothing and wistful. See also: Lifeblood (which I'm playing now).

I still listen to both, often.

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America, and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.

Guess we won't see a deluxe version of the album along with all the B-sides (which I thought were better than most of the album tracks).

I should have taken my LP copy for him to scribble on at rough trade. He signed the CD last time

Still, how much would he get per album? 2 or 3? Still alright for a solo thingy that prob cost a couple of thousand to make.
