I will read this in full tomorrow, but I can start out by saying that this is pretty good news. Only for the fact that this is ONE OF THE BEST F*CKING ALBUMS EVER RECORDED!!! EVER!!!

 

I kinda don't mind it. :D Great news. I've wanted to hear something better than the demo quality stuff for ages!

That's awesome! :woot: In hindsight I feel kinda bad now for shelling out $20 for a silver pressed demo but my joy in knowing there will be an official release overshadows that by a mile!

Also, in the article they talk about a band called Killingbird doing a remake of Vain's "Beat The Bullet". If anyone is interested you can download the song here:

I just sent an email to the address on his official site asking if there was a release date yet for the project. In the meantime, I noticed on the message board there are several live shows and demos that are available for download:

I tried to download that stuff but I don't think it's available now.

 

Here's a link to Vain's my space page. They have a couple of friends that are former bandmembers including original drummer Tom Rickard, if you click on him you can listen to some of his songs, it seems he's went into some type of country direction.

This release must have went by the boards huh?

 

I am looking for a high quality version of the mp3's of this cd or the CD itself I guess. I see someone on Ebay has 9 burned copies for sale and I asked about them and she said they are high quality. I dunno. Anyone have any opinions or can lead me in the right direction?

 

I do have the 128 bit rate version of the songs on MP3 and the quality sucks but the songs are great...I wish this would just get released so we could buy it.

As far as I know, there aren't any really good quality copies of these songs going around. The version I have isn't terrible, but I would LOVE to see this released properly.

I've got a great version on CDR but the running order is wrong compared to the promo cassettes that sneaked out.

The sound is really really good, and I just set the CD player to play it in the correct order.

 

Sure beats the version I downloaded off Napster ab-so-lute-ly years ago....which took me 2 weekends...hahaha!

 

But an official release is way overdue.

I just grabbed a copy off an Ebay seller. He says it is from the promo cassette, track order is correct and he sent me a sample that sounds WAY better than what I have. $9, with more available.

 

But yeah, somebody just officially release it already!

I'll post back on the cd I get once I receive it. The sample he sent me was pretty decent.

I remember reading sometime post 2007 that the masters were lost and without some finanicial backing they would stay that way (Think it was on that vain fan website/board).

 

So odd that Davy Vain in 2006 would state its coming soon.

 

 

When Vain toured the UK a few years ago, my mate promoted a couple of the gigs. Davy Vain at that time didn't have a copy of All Those Strangers on any format. He didn't even own the rights to NR!!!

IMO the last few vain/davy cds were just ok at best, so I don't expect anything else of real quality to come out from the band.

Hope they put their energy into releasing this.

I bed to differ. I felt that "On the Line" is/was one great cd IMO.

The solo disc "In From Out of Nowhere" was good but not great but I loved "Fade" and "Move on It" as well as "No Respect" of course.

I have enjoyed everything from Vain but I completely understand where Rob is coming from.

 

In all honesty, 'No Respect', 'All those strangers' and 'Move on it' are all perfect albums. There is not a filler on all three and I cannot fault them at all.

 

'Fade' is a great disc and has some really excellent stuff on it... but also a couple of not-so-awesome songs. First signs of filler creeping into a Vain disc, although it's still easily my 4th favourite from the guys. 'In from out of nowhere' has it's moments and I do thoroughly enjoy the disc, but it definitely doesn't hold up to the Vain discs. The first song is killer, though. And 'On the line' is another very strong CD. All the songs are pretty damn good, but there are no real stand-out highlights whereas there was barely anything that wasn't a stand-out of the first three discs.

 

So, in summary, I don't think Vain have ever sucked and I love all albums I have from them (and Davy's solo) but I think it'd be hard to argue that the last three are nowhere near as good as the first three.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
