I thought it was interesting that Gary still has very conflicting if not downright contradictory feelings about AE. Kind of a love-hate compulsion thingie, bitterness and still a little bit of hero-worship. I guess he's one of those people who you kind of don't ever put behind you...

HL) And just for the anoraks, what make of guitar is it?

GM) It’s a Gibson Les Paul (LS1 I think), a model which never really took off.

--------------

Was there ever an LS1 ? couldn't find any mention of it in the Gibson reference books, maybe Mr. Marx is confused by his old Leeds postcode.

The Anaconda guitar's looks more like an SG than and LP anyway.

Finally found an ARIA 12-string ala Wayne for those who are interested, feels cheap and nasty but has a lot of sustain with the neck-through.

Vox.

I had always been suspicious of Mr E's claim that the Sisters were more rooted in the town than in the University, but had assumed this was due to GM being a native of Leeds. Clearly not. Mr E's desire to be 'of the people' may explain his alleged courting of the Goths, as the majority certainly seemed to be born-and-bred Leeders. At that time, very few self-respecting students would have spent that long getting ready for a night out.

Cool

It has just occurred to me that if the original sisters line up DID reform and tour, it would be like watching a gothic 'Right Said Fred'...

I thought it was interesting that GM (effectively) singled out Floorshow and Adrenochrome as the two best songs from that whole period. Interesting because I've always thought the same, absolutely cracking songs. Whereas Anaconda, as GM says, is very weak and lifeless. Should never have been a single. (Much like Body and Soul, but let's not get started on that). Good judgement, whatever else went on. So the ideal scenario is, AE writes and records a lot of songs, GM decides which ones to release!

There is a "news"-section on Gary's website now...

and a realaudio-file of one of the songs he wrote for andrew in 1995
Quote:
It seems my return after an extended silence has prompted a good deal of speculation about the 'missing years'. In particular we have received a good many questions about the material I wrote for a new Sisters album in 1995. I've detailed how it came about elsewhere (as for why it has never been finished...), suffice to say I've decided to dust off the tracks and preview some of them here. The first of which is called 'Black-Eyed Faith'. Downloads of other archive material will be online in the near future.

F*cking hell!!!!!!!

The phrase "On that bombshell..." springs to mind... Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised

Bl**dy good.... We are not worthy! We are not worthy! And like they've never been away, and like there'd been no Floodland or Vision Thing (for better or worse Wierded Out ) Like some sort of missing link (or is this just exaggeration?)

Hmmmmmmmmm...Mr Marx calls this a 'preview'...Does this mean the trax may yet see the light of day officially (though presumably never under the SOM moniker) sometime soon?

I wish...Come on Von, swallow yer pride and Do The Right Thing!! Rolling Eyes Surprised
