The one with the flowers on is really, really old. I doubt you'll find one like that in the shops today.

But browsing second hand shops and the like for silly looking shirts can be fun. I found some flamboyant ones in Kensington Market and in Amsterdam. (not much help, I know)

I liked it, a lot! From the opening scene and onwards it was like going on a rollercoaster-ride. Silly but a lot of fun. I wanna do it again.

I'm sure I've seen it as an exact quote as well, not just a vague resemblance. Come to think of it I'm pretty sure Richard Chamberlein recites the phrase in Thornbirds. Give me a moment or a couple years and I'll look it up :)

It's biblical in that that it is a bible quote. Andrew said in an interview that he always knew the album was going to be their first and last. Hence the title, which was to be prophetic and smug at the same time, and Wake. He could see things on the horizon. The words to Possession is about that.

WEA is Warner/Elektra/Atlantic Corporation. East West is WEA's label and was responsible for Sisters records outside the states and Elektra was responsible for Sisters records in America.

At least that's what I've always assumed.

I heartily agree. The album with "This earth we walk upon" is ace too. At least it was when I listened to it twelve years ago.

That was where she complained of the cold. Despite it being 20 degrees warmer in Southend than it would have been in Moscow at the time. Strange girl.

I always thought their slogan should be "It's your way - or Norway!"

For me it's probably Dance or Die, even though they tend to write silly lyrics.

@Obviousman - I've always been curious about Godspeed you!, but never actually listened to them. What's it like? Are they comparable with any other bands out there?

Indeed. Was this recently? Because I know they used that song a few years ago, the second or third season. One morning, seriously hungover, the herd had to watch a tape of a previous night of bickering, sex and p*ss on the floor, and it is accompanied by the song I was wrong. Silly, inn'it?

There should have been a better (i.e more expensive) video promoting Under the gun, to get more airtime on MTV (Label to blame). No, no, and 1000 x no.

How strange. 10 songs listed under Andrew Harvey William Taylor along with Peter Hemsley and Gordon Ingram. 8 songs with Peter Hemsley and Graham Ingram. Another Andrew Harvey William then? What are the odds?

I've been listening to Sackloth'n'ashes most of yesterday and today and it's a bloody good album.

Rian, my fellow swede, did you happen to catch them on Musikjournalen?

Incidently I noticed on their website that there is a DVD with live footage/videos coming out in March.
