FOUR DAYS IN


I just got home from the studio and feel really quite SOMETHING.
We finished the 2 songs and I wrote another one which was hastily recorded and is, I think, VERY good.

Senor Geoff Travis came down and seems very happy, and it feels like we really began the album today. Great big fuzzy feelings of joy surround us like a big fuzzy joy-sack, complete with trepidation motif, wings, and a great fanged zipper of inexplicable satisfaction.
Just stick to writing songs and not prose? Deal.

Am listening to Street Legal and putting myself back in my place.

Finn my friend - your music has made it all the way down here to the UAE and made someone very happy - isn't that cool?

"The Leaver's Dance" single is the most original, beautiful, haunting and destroying song of all time. I have never EVER heard a song that breathes desire, yearning, angst, pain and longing more than that song. Please make one even remotely like it on the new album.

Also, where the HELL can I get a copy of "The House She Lived In" - I can't find it anywhere...

Adidassler, are you meaning THE HOUSE WHERE WE ALL LIVE? or is there another tune i am unaware of? THE HOUSE WHERE WE ALL LIVE is one of my absolute favorites... it's a nostalgic masterpiece that has provoked tears on more than one occasion.

If you are looking for the song I speak of, it is on NUX VOMICA, but if you are speaking of another song i've not heard of, please pass on the information of where to find it once you do. :)

No NO - I know "The House Where We All LIve" and I love it, but there are a few songs whihc they never put on their albums and I'm not sure they have them on the B-Side of singles either, and they are excellent.

"One of us must go" is a really poetic song about death and love and then there is "Wires to Flying Birds" and also "The House she lived in" - youtube link below:

The tune grows on you and makes it really addictive but I can't find a copy of it anywhere and the Youtube version is bad quality...

Can't wait for it, Finn. You possess (or are possessed by) a special genius. That said, listening to Zimmerman is a good move in light of being told things like 'you are a genius'. It will help keep you humble, and out of your own rear-end. Godspeed, you wickedly gifted man!

I remember "The House She Lived In" being played at the concert in The Netherlands (Patronaat) last year. Finn told the audience to ask the guys at the back (by the merchandise stand) about it, if we wanted to more about that song. Though I never did (I'm too shy), the song was beautiful. The entire concert was amazing. I sincerely hope you will all come back to the Netherlands soon. I miss seeing you perform live.
