Last point, I think I read some discussion of a Forth reissue? That was a joke, right? Forth never should been made. It's utter crap and a stain on their great legacy. I laughed pretty hard though, so if it was a joke, good one.
Nah, no joke. That was me.
I liked Forth. Swap Valium Skies & Rather Be for any of the B-Sides or bonus tracks & it's even more of a belter. As great as the first two albums? No, but there were some brilliant moments on it. Wouldn't need a remaster, but I think an expanded edition with all of the extra tracks & some unreleased material would go down well. Even just to put a final stamp on the band & their catalogue. I do think it will come out. The album went in at number 1; When I broached the subject, Nick didn't say no; The video that was posted here (Ain't The Future A Trip) was allegedly a track from the Forth sessions & referenced Universal Music Group as the label on the video stamp. They handled the first two reissues. The video disappeared within 24 hours; the Urban Hymns set is supposed to be out towards the end of the year, 2018 will mark 10 years since Forth. I can see them bundling the release, like the first two albums. Definitive, conclusive proof? No. But I think there is a good chance of one.
Commence laughter ....
Kinda getting off topic here, but for the sake of a fun argument...really? Are you fucking serious!
Forth went in at number 1 where? The U.K. Charts? So it sold what, 20k units? To quote RPA, COME ON!
The only thing Forth did was put the nail in the coffin. Thank god. Verve ruled. Epic band. But they are done, and Forth proved it. 99.999999% of the public never heard one single song off it. It is so goddamn awful my head hurts. I know Nick likes it and this board is mostly team nick(myself included) but shite is shite.
Also, on to another post, hard to admit it, but neon wilderness is a terrible song and I'm once again agreeing with RPA. Anyone got Debbie's number?
