Re: Reissues project

The spines of Nightlife and Release can be seen in a recent Pet Text - the jewel case front images are continued on the spines, with no text on top I assume. Anyone care to share some close-ups? (Tried to attach the photo but it's too large.) Correct. It's most obvious on Nightlife. http://i.imgur....

Re: Are they skint?

From the sound of it, the recording studio is no more.

Re: Reissues project

They could easily have stuck on the demos of Drunk (alluded to in the booklet) and Closer to Heaven (teased on About). I'm certain there's an embarrassment of riches from that period which could have made it on. Unless they wanted to put more on but couldn't because of the legal stuff they mentioned...

Re: Sodom and Gomorrah demo confusion

Likely replaced very last minute after the booklets and inlays had already been printed.

Re: Are they skint?

I doubt they are skint. Possibly not as well off as they might have been in the past, but probably still worth enough to live comfortably (they run homes in London and Berlin which won't be cheap!).

There is no "hello everybody" speech at the beginning of the song and some noises of rape/violence in the bridge are muffled. It didn't turn out to be a good thing.
No Eminem sample either.

Re: Reissues project

Some of the tracks are on the "wrong" discs where the Nightlife and Release FL albums are concerned.

Re: The 2 John Peel tracks

These are the same studio recorded tracks that were leaked some time ago, just remastered.

The version of Try It wasn't much different to the one that ended up on Disco 3.

Re: Reissues project

Well my order from the OS is still a no-show. Have had to acquire by less official means in the interim. Interesting that the version of God Willing isn't the same as the Rough mix that was available on the OS for a time. Would have liked the ILTR and Integral demos to have been included. Surprised ...

Re: Reissues project

Ordered from the OS, no CDs for me today.

And the previously unreleased stuff greyed out on Spotify.

I'm not in the greatest of moods right now!

Re: Free downloads from the OS

I grabbed a few at the time. A lot of them are out in the wild.

but didn't the Party album then include that same version (again in error) in 2009?
Only the first pressing IIRC.

Re: Fundamental Further Listening Question.

If you listen to them you can tell they have roots in the Fundamental writing sessions.
