::pistol to head::

no one told me that richard butler had released a solo album and did a US tour this spring.

no one.




twenty-four years of seeing him every time I was in the same city as he was and I missed it.









am consoling myself by downloading the album.

so far it's sweet, mellow, and overproduced.

the songwriting's not bad but I wish he'd take some musical chances in the accompaniment department.

oh well. he's in his 40s. I guess he can settle down and write MOR downer-rock.

aw man, so sorry, erik.

Is his voice good on the album (you mentioned overproduced)?

it's sweet, like I said. lots of falsetto. I've only listened to it once cause I had to unplug the speakers and go sit with my feet up and compute with intensity all day.

really, with his voice you can't go wrong. I wish he'd take a tom waits-ish turn though, and use some car doors and hand tools instead of layered synths.

Fuck, I hate it when that happens! I heard about the recent Gamma Ray tour 3 days after they came to my city.

yeah I gotta start paying more attention. I skim the local music ads about once every three months, find nothing I want to see, then forget for another three months.
