Del Amitri?

Always loved this band. Just got a hold of about 30 b-sides and was simply blown away by a lot of them. "A Better Man" is just awesome and I can't believe it never made one of their studio albums. In fact, a lot of these songs are amazing. Definitely a band that should have been huge. I consider everything from Waking Hours through Another Suckers to be prime stuff...as well as Justin's two solo albums.

 

Any other Del fans here?

Got Waking Hours, Change Everything, Some Other Suckers Parade and Twisted. I struggle to find bad tracks on them. I only picked up Twisted a few weeks ago for 49p.

Yeah, stay away from their S/T debut and you're in good shape.

 

Google "Del Amitri Rarities"...there's a really great 10 part out-of-print B-sides blog out there. There's around 30 studio tracks and a boatload of live and alternate versions of songs. And like I said, some of these tracks are really great. They have an actual B-Side album out called Lousy With Love with even more...never heard this but going to order it.

 

And I might be crazy, but some of the Dels stuff sounds like what Butch Walker was trying to do with some stuff on I Liked You Better When You Had No Heart and some of Sycamore Meadows. Vocals are nothing alike, but the songwriting and some of the music definitely makes me think of the Dels. I'd be interested to hear his opinion of them.

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
