Watching some of the Frost* Reports now, having heard the stuff "a few times" (sorry to those who haven't yet) I'm really enjoying connecting the bits we got to hear back then with the finished tracks.
It's quite surprising the level of detail that goes in to the creation process that ends up not being *obvious* in the final pieces until several listens in or maybe only gets noticed in the instrumental or even only where Jem has pointed them out, like some of the guitar work in "Toys" or the liquid vocals in "Secret Song".
Marvellous!  :)

You know I'm glad he Jem gave us the instrumental, the other night 2 of my friends and I got drunk and put that in the cd player. There's nothing like 3 drunk guys trying to hit high notes and sing the wrong lyrics for the song. I still can't remember large chunks of that night though.... On a more serious note, I wish that I had the instrumental for the "Secret Song", but having the instrumentals makes it easier to transcribe the songs.

As I've previously said re Belinda, I'm a bit cloth-eared, but I thought I detected 'the choir of chaps' in among the instrumentals. Which is surely No2 in the list of Mellotron cliches...

have to say I love listening to the instrumentals as much as the main tracks ... Thanks Jem what a spankingly great idea !
... it was like watching a peach jelly f##k a steel drum ..  :D

especially Wonderland - those extra vocal parts just don't show up in the regular mix   ;)  :shock:  :)

I wonder if this will ever be performed live!  :shock:

Hadn't actually gotten round to listening to Wonderland as an instrumental yet..

It has actually made my day...Bloody brilliant. Especially the "Chipmunks do Lo-fi" bit  :mrgreen:

And there was me pissing myself about the bit in Welcome to nowhere..!!

As mad as a spoon...it's official

i left the cd on in the car and it was on the quiet intro to Welcome to Nowhere turned up quite loud and she managed to get around 100 yards before armageddon ensued from the speakers.

I actually just laughed out loud when I read that :)
I may have made the same mistake (it's not really a mistake though is it... ;) )

Here Hear.  Just listened to them for the first time.  Always a bit wary of instrumentals, but these work brilliantly having heard the full thing first.  Wonder if other artists could get away with it, or would this show the lack of depth in some things around?

By the way, was going through the hard disk and found this Peel T-shirt that never was:



some of you will, of course, now be familiar with its origin...

Err... If you think you're going to get a duck on Valentine's Day, you'd better think again? - maybe?

I FINALLY got around to listening to these.

Wonderland made my friend and I laugh so hard we started crying.  A wonderful little surprise.

That's not a duck. Have a closer gander.

That's a flirting goose!
You talk
You think you own me
You miss the point completely
These things I do they\'re not for you
I\'m sick and I\'m tired
Leave me alone...
