Run Girl Girl - a rerecording
It isn't. It's the exact same track as 20 years ago.

About the production: it can probably be regarded at the same level as the My Dad's A Birdman music.

I sort of wish Neil and Chris would confirm that the quality (or lack thereof) is intentional.

Retro. :)
What are you on about? Nightlife had a great production and still sounds fresh. My word! Some petheads are so blinkered!

I'm not so sure. Friendly fire was probably rerecorded.

Yes, Friendly Fire is a rerecording. Run Girl Run not so much.

The stage dimly light. Drico saunters to the microphone. Cigarette between his yellowing fingers, clutching a whiskey sour to his bosom.

In the queeniest of voices, he smoulders:

I haven't enough interest in Billie Trix, even less Jonathan Harvey, to endure the queeny frivolity on stage in Edinburgh in a bid to "get" this, but I don't think "production" is the biggest stick to beat them with here. I'd offer the fact that they continue to work with a low-rent collaborator like Harvey - a man for whom one cheap cliche is never enough when two will do instead - is more damning.

I feel similarly regarding this year's releases. It reminds me of the Nightlife / Release era, where the instrument/sound selection was strange.

Retro. :)
What are you on about? Nightlife had a great production and still sounds fresh. My word! Some petheads are so blinkered!
I was talking about the orchestration, not the production. Perhaps if you weren't so blinkered, you may have been able to comprehend this?

Kind regards.

Retro. :)

    I swear that it’s Gru’s mum from Despicable Me doing a guest turn there Image
    you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

    You really have to be amazed at how prolific Neil and Chris are. I cant think of any artist who puts out so much new material. main albums, B-sides, collaborations, side projects, musicals. I cant think of anyone really.
