Nice find!

Some interesting stuff there.

Quote:
That said, a 20th anniversary edition of Urban Hymns is mooted. McCabe says, “There’s an unreleased track called All Ways Are Maybes and it’s one the best things we ever did” - but the inference is that it’s out of McCabe’s control.


Hopefully we'll get to hear that on the re-release.

That's a neat read. Can't even begin to speculate what this all ways are maybes sounds like. Does it come from the Olympic jamming sessions?

Something doesn't add up about All the Ways are Maybes. It can't be a Richard Ashcroft song or else he would have plundered it for his own career.

Seems very strange that it would crop up now.

Weird that it wasn't used as bside for UH tracks, a bonus track on the singles collection, or reworked during Forth along with Mover and Muhammad Ali.

in the big Chris Potter article just after UH came out he mentions ''one or two really good tracks that they didnt use'' or something to that effect.

In May '97 the band embarked on ten days of jamming at Olympic Studios. Did you realise at the time that you'd get five or six new songs out of those tapes?

I didn't actually no. I was kind of concerned because I knew at that stage that Richard was concerned about the record, the over-reliance on his own songs. We ended up with an awful lot more from those ten days than I thought we were going to - Weeping Willow, Catching the Butterfly, Stamped, Three Steps, The longest Day..... There's still some stuff left, definitely at least one other that I know is really good.

That part caught my attention:

...a planned “four CDs’ worth” of his own unreleased archives: “The guitar’s in the vein of ‘Frippertronics’ [Robert Fripp’s layered looping technique].”
