    "check out this Colin Newman piece from the Crammed era."

    Thanks.

    Going off at a tangent...

    What's that piano piece at the end? I know it from way back but can't recognise it.

    Keith,

    Sounds like background music used in something like an animation but very hazy memory.

    Ian,

    I listened to the chorus's tunes on both Lorries and if that's the link, it's very subtle.

    Colin's acting ! (heh - don't give up the day job/keep strumming that guitar !) ;-)

    It's Marc Hollander playing, so it could be an Aksak Maboul piece, but I would have to dig through the entire Crammed back catalogue to try to find it. It's not on "Un peu de l'ame des bandits" or "Made To Measure Vol. 1".

    Thanks. Not sure how I know it, but I did.
    Will investigate further!

    A bit of a pedant's question here about In Vivo.
    On the CD single, there's a 7" version and a 12" (which I'm pretty sure is the same as the 'Club Mix' on Coatings). Given that the version on IBTABA is a bonus track, what is the version on there/where does it come from?
  8.  
    Hello

    the 12" mix and Club Mix are different hence it's inclusion on Coatings. The Club Mix was a DJ only 12" pressed up in limited quainty and handed to various club DJ's. I only discovered it's existence many moons ago when on Camden Market, sifting through second hand vinyl. So when it came to compiling Coatings it was an obvious inclusion.

    Is this footage of the Bruce/50 bash in 96?

    Whatever it is, that's a bloody fantastic version of Drill.
  11.  
    Damn, that's rippin'. Thanks for the find.

    Magnifique! Needs releasing.

    Thanks for sharing... that was a lot of fun!

    That performance seems a lot 'rougher' than almost anything else I can think of by Wire (Live at the Roxy I suppose being the exception). Rougher not in the sense of bad, but in a kind of 'lo-fi' way.

    Now I want to hear the stuff with Steve Albini.
  15.  
    If I understand you correctly, 'lo-fi' is not a term I'd remotely associate with Mr. Albini... not high-end either, just very straight-ahead, no frills, well miked, clean, balanced, fresh and live, with a punchy in-the-room presence to the music.
  16.  
    I wouldn't associate clean with Steve Albini at all, more a kind of anti-production. He produces so well it doesn't really sound produced.
  17.  
    It is the footage from Under The Arches at the South Bank for Bruce's 50th.
  18.  
    Thank you. I thought so but needed to make sure.
  19.  
    He produces so well it doesn't really sound produced.

    That's a good description, because the feel to Shellac's albums is that you're in the room with the band. That's kind of what I meant by 'clean' - not clean as in squeaky clean, just well separated.
  20.  
    Mmmh, he's great at an 'in the room feel', as you said. If you listen to Pod by The Breeders, you have people smoking, chatting, sneezing, rustling in the background. It's all there deliberatly, but gives a great ambience.
    Its a pity we'll probably never here him with Wire.
