I meant me, and was musing Gift is quite a difficult listen for an outsider to the scene, when compared to the hit (in more than one way) laden Floodland.
Aha, a bit asking 'Do you like my Etchings?' and putting Stop The World on the stereo :lol:

Re: Gift reissue plus extras

Rain From Heaven has a groove that is missing from most of Gift. I always wondered what might have happened to the track if Steinman had been let loose on it.

I'd posit his main (possibly only) contribution to music was to add so many layers to it so it sounded completely different to anything else on jukeboxes & AM radios in the 60's.

How do you do a rolling round in the floor pissing myself emoji :idea:

To be fair Gift never pulled the birds in the same way as Floodland did.
So now we know, it was all done as a favour to attract feathered snacks for Spiggy.

The regularly over-flowing toilets were the scariest thing about the Phono in '82/3 :lol:. In those days you never joined a taxi queue you just walked back up the hill to the wasteland around the Uni, usually via Tony's caf.

Mr Whizz, as the song says, there is 'hope in my heart'. Just need to see off those Red Mancs at the weekend.

A single release or a 'radio session' might be nice though.

Re: Now Sisters 2021

As I understand it the current vaccines prevent a significant number of people (90%+) from suffering the severe form of the illness and so lessen the chance of death. They don't confer immunity or stop transmission. I stress I'm not a virologist or a GP and I'm eagerly awaiting my place in the queue...

Re: Gift reissue plus extras

To be honest, it was the 'Giving Ground' single that was the two fingers to Wayne and Craig. I have always viewed Gift as basically an extended 12" release of that single as, to me, there was little extra there to warrant much repeated listening. The 1990 Wembley Arena gigs equalled The Mish's UK ar...

The difference being that a significant number of our 'fisherpeople', as I believe the current acceptable phraseology is, in the south-west and east coast voted for Brexit and so are happy idiots and compliant to the will of the blond horror.
