Re: Gaz interview on Van der Graaf Generator website

Thanks Ross, extraordinary stuff. I had wondered about the choice of AA gigs, and the Russia connection, and now we know why. But more live AA on the cards??! Also interesting how the stories get retold over the years, some parts expanding, others parts getting compressed, always giving another way ...

Re: Dead Cities 2LP reissue

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

that's the curse of having spent your teens to forties listening to loads of music. you can remember half bitten fragments on a good day, then they're gone. I have 3-4 tracks i'm always trying to complete. One sounds like Spooky's Shelter, but isn't. The one which sounds like Cola Boy, Seven ways to...

Re: FSOL on Wipeout 2048?

Very interesting tidbits, thank you! I do recall Pande leaving for Canada. I see his occasional updates on LinkedIn with his mobile games company. I miss the atmos too. Seedy was a laugh too. I've noticed on Facebook you don't really have the nuanced chats there, as it would get lost in the noise. M...

Re: RSD 2021 Releases

Given that the original WHE EP was tonally quite different to DC, I'm really curious to see where this will head.
Now you mention it, the EP was almost a bit ISDN-y in parts.

But, 11 tracks for this one! They really know how to twist the nostalgia knife :D

Re: FSOLDigital Calendar

We need more merch on the store. I finally got round to decorating (ok i paid someone) and can now mount the Alice poster in a frame. What I really want is a big lifeforms poster, obviously. How about a vote on the most sought after graphic, and the guys can put it up on the store? ;)
