geeze, and I missed that. I made a huge mistake. Them niggas know their stuffing.

As a break from not making any new records at all, The The's Matt Johnson shows off his new variety of Sarracenia 'Matt Johnson', cultivated by Matt

If you ask me, that smile looks rather uncertain.

 

That Sarracenia is like a sun risin' thru my garden.

 

Looks like he wants to be part of the peat(en) generation these days.

 

That promted me to get out the The The.

 

:thumbsup:

 

New Elbow is a grower.

There was a day, when his life surely changed.

Thought this was funny.

Translation of marketing terms:

 

“Career spanning” > The bits of the artist’s career the label have the rights to.

“Host of unreleased recordings” > Music rejected the first time around for being sub-standard.

“Rare photographs” > Photographs you’ve seen before.

“Remastered” > Louder, with less dynamic range than the CD you’ve owned for 25 years.

“Remastered by *insert name of artist*” > The artist sat there drinking tea, while a qualified engineer did the work.

“Remastered from the original tapes, where available” > Most of it isn’t from the original tapes.

“Complete Studio Recordings” > All of the studio albums, but no B-sides, remixes or tracks from compilations.

“Personally overseen by *insert name of the artist*” > The artist forgets to include half the rarities and leaves of stuff they don’t like anymore. Label too scared to argue.

“Previously unreleased on CD” > Until a fan informs them that it isn’t.

“Audiophile vinyl” > Vinyl.

“Pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl” > So it must be good.

“Pressed on 200g heavyweight vinyl” > So it must be even better.

“Vinyl replica sleeve” > Cheap packaging solution (Japan excluded).

“25th Anniversary Edition” > 24th, 25th or 26th Anniversary Edition

“Lithograph” > Poster on posh paper.

“Poster” > Folded 32 times rendering it useless

“Tote Bag” > We’re getting desperate

“Keyring” > See ‘Tote Bag’

“As originally envisaged by the artist” > They’ve changed their mind.

“Limited Edition” > The label will stop producing it a some point.

“Bespoke packaging” > You’ll never be able to store it

“Seminal album” > Album.

“Landmark release” > Sold loads at the time.

“Influential” > Didn’t sell much at the time.

I see GnR have some unreleased albums that they plan to release which they made a while ago now.

I will have to sample that.

I used to be a mega GnR fan I went to their concerts boght the T-shirts, caps, etc and got all their music.

I still like them a lot; probably a fan forever.

Yes a lot of unreleased is good.

The artist doesnt release it for manu reasons they dont like it, their management don`t like it/dont want to release it.

Lady Gaga has many unreleased songs all of which I have and they are very good.

I also got some unreleased from Queen, def lepard, Shania Twain all very good stuff. Well that is my opinion of course.

Actually I have from other artists too.

But the main reason, more often than not, is because it's often shite; fodder for barrel scraping 'deluxe editions' down the line.

 

'We actually had some dignity back then, but now just topping up the pension!'

Are they any better than her released stuff?

 

If so, I suppose that means they could be better than shite.
