Guess the albums

2 copies of Shrug's latest?

Kaiser Chiefs?

rob_fmttm Posted on 3/5 11:19
re: Guess the albums

Nope. And Shrug's latest is a mere 7 years old. But thanks for the concern hope to record and release later this year.

OK. Another clue - let me see - Celtic origin and that is with a hard C not a hooped shirted football team.

Megadeth's new album?

Tom_Fun Posted on 3/5 11:21
re: Guess the albums

Hmm, you mentioned cigarillo, which sounds like a Fratellis song. Even though that was released in 2006.

is there a prize?

rob_fmttm Posted on 3/5 11:22
re: Guess the albums

No haven't heard Megadeath's latest. Actually haven't heard these albums yet as have only just received them.

But I was once sacked as singer from a band from the former guitarist of a very famous thrash metal band. Apparently I wasn't taking it seriously. He was of course quite right.

re: Guess the albums

Errr Cigarillo was a red herring it just sounds better than cigar - no idea whether it tastes better though.

The prize is taking pride in your work, guess work.

Both Cd artists have played here before but not from here.

re: Guess the albums

Anyone heard Mark E Smith's new album with German band Mouse on Mouse yet? Probably not as it isn't officially released yet - but that doesn't seem an impediment these days.

Has nowt to do with Mark E Smith. And nowt to do with folk music - well not directly.

Another clue?

.... the final frontier.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 3/5 11:34
re: Guess the albums

Hmmm.... i'm thinking Leonard Nimoy in a deerstalker hat?

rob_fmttm Posted on 3/5 11:37
re: Guess the albums

Nah. They're not that obscure.

One is by a band whose singer used to be solo. The other is a solo album by the singer of a band.

The only link between the albums is that I bought them together. Just thought there was more chance of guessing at least one of them.

Did anyone see Space Catatonia joint tour at the Cornerhouse. Apparently Cerys was transfixed on Tommy Space all night.

Both are mostly in English but one is partly in welsh.

One of them received the following review in Mojo (it's stuck to the front sleeve) "Joyously heartfelt pop..."

rob_fmttm Posted on 3/5 12:07
re: Guess the albums

Nah Gadgie - I'm not in it for the ratings me.

I did actually once play with members of the solo singer's band in Cardiff. But that's far too obscure.

The singer off the band CD has played on Teesside many times before. He once flew the nest.

Gruff Rhys solo album by any chance?

If is it any good. Liked the last single he released even though had no idea what the hell he was on about!

rob_fmttm Posted on 3/5 12:17
re: Guess the albums

In one..
candylion by Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals.

Haven't heard it yet - but here is a video of the title song.

rob_fmttm Posted on 3/5 12:35
re: Guess the albums

Come on what about the other album?

They've probably recorded the follow up by now.

Its a band. Scottish origin. Played on Teesside. Debut album. Singer has played lots of times in these parts. He was once in a semi famous band but flew the nest and went a lone.

Clue was .. space.

Cosmic Rough Riders?

What is the prize for getting both right?

rob_fmttm Posted on 3/5 12:39
re: Guess the albums

No I didn't just seen a link to it on their website. Will have a look now.

Did you see it? Was it/he any good?

re: Guess the albums

peako - I didn't see MES but I did spot you on the telly a couple of weeks ago.

peako_from_the_boro Posted on 3/5 12:41
re: Guess the albums

He was actually very funny. Basically just like youd hope Mark E would play Jesus if anyone ever asked him.

re: Guess the albums

Aliens! I must be right!

rob_fmttm Posted on 3/5 12:55
re: Guess the albums

Correct Tom.
We got there in the end.

Gruff Rhys - candylion - which I couldn't find in any shops round here. Singer with Welsh super groupers Super Furry Animals and knows Euros Childs very well I'm sure. I onec played with a couple of Super Furry's in previous (south) Welsh indie pop band called U Thant.

The Aliens - from Anstruther, Fife - fronted by Gordon formerly known as Lone Pigeon who flew the Beta Band nest when they were known as the Pigeons - he wrote some of their songs and two of the Beta Band couldn't wait to team up with him again when Beta Band split. Were snapped up by EMI sraight away.

Gordon's brother Kenny - aka King Creosote will be headlining at Georgian Theatre Stockton's Cup Final all dayer - May 19th along with Elaine Palmer, Ben Wetherill, Sal Paradise and some very special guests.

Woo-hoo! Only took me about 5 goes. Robot Man is a bobby dazzler of a tune. They were eccentrically brilliant at Stockton Festival last year.

FW - I was on the telly?

Are you sure

FW_2 Posted on 3/5 16:33
re: Guess the albums

Yep. It was Look North/North East Tonight and looked like it was in the Cleveland Centre, you were with a possible Mrs and Miss Peako signing up to something I think?

Oh God, am I going mad? No, it was definitely you.
