Hi and thanks for visiting "elbow room only"

I was looking around for an elbow forum but could find none. The band doesn't seem to have an official one, so I decided to start one up and see how it goes.

The success of a forum is entirely dependent on the community (that means you!) so I'm open to any suggestions regarding layout, forum catagories and so on.

I hope you find this place useful and informative, and hopefully a very friendly place to hang out.

Cheers,

MagicalTrevor

Hiya, nice idea making an Elbow fan site, seems a bit quiet at the moment, but thats probably because its new Smile . Ive only recently heard of Elbow, but i have liked everything that I have heard, so I bought the new album "The Seldom Seen Kid". Anyway, with a bit more time and awareness, i imagine this forum will soon be buzzing (good to know I got in there from the start Very Happy !). Couple of suggestions: Add a few more topic threads. Add a link to Elbow's main site. Put in a Forum Suggestions topic thread. I've administrated quite a few forums and I know how hard it is to get them up and running, but I think this is a good start, and i believe it will soon be very popular with the right advertising.

oh yer, p.s. If the forum does turn out to be popular, make Elbow aware of it as bands occasionally put links to unofficial fan sites on their own websites. (just a thought Very Happy )

Oops, I forget, another suggestion would be to put in a forum rules thread.

Hi folks,
there was in fact a fansite (http://www.powderblue.fsnet.co.uk) but unfortunately it broke down. The forum from that site still exsists ( http://www.atomicboards.com/board.pl?user=powderblue ) but it is hard to google. But I have no problem surfing to more than one forums. And I hope, some of the powderblue-folks might surf here too. Smile

Hey thanks, and welcome!

I remember that site from years back! I'd totally forgotten about it, though it appears I am not a member, which is unusual. I don't want to steal anybody's thunder, but if people are happy to register on here then that's great!

Most bands have loads of fansites anyway, so its good that there is quite a few spreading the word of Elbow...

Hi All!

I am so happy to have found this forum!
My name is Joanie, I'm from Ireland and have been a fan since Cast of Thousands.
So glad to find some fellow fans of this fantastic, very much underrated band!
I've got tickets to the Dublin and Belfast shows and I am really, really looking forward to it.
I just saw the set-list and it looks fab, but where is 'Weather to Fly' ???? Shocking!

J

Nice to meet you Joanie! yeah, I realized that I would've been happy if they played everything off the new album...! but then there might've been an outcry for earlier material... c'est la vie ;P

Well, I more or less introduced myself in a different thread yesterday, but I'll make it "official" here.
My name is Julie (obviously), and I'm in Dallas, TX. Compared to a lot of you, I'm a relative latecomer to the music of Elbow...started listening to BBC6 online a few years ago, heard "Forget Myself" one fateful day, just about lost my mind ("who was that??"), went straight out and bought LOFW, and within weeks was head-over-heels in love and soaking up everything I could find by this wonderful band.
As I mourned yesterday, they are not coming near Dallas enough for me to go see them (weep!), but I'm thrilled for the rest of you and am looking forward to lots of glowing reports. ( and pictures!)

SO happy to have found this forum - thanks so much for putting it together! Looking forward to getting to know you all...

Julie

I'm an Elbow fan from Croatia. Not many people here know about Elbow because they still aren't that popular. I came acroos Elbow completely accidentally, while browsing in a music shop. The guy working there was listening to Red and I loved the song. We enquired about the band and the guy told us it was Elbow.
It took me a few days to buy Asleep in the Back and Cast of Thousands....I'm a fan for almost 5 years now...

Nice to meet y'all! I'm in South Florida and I have been a lonely Elbow fan since Asleep In The Back. Thank God for British music magazines, because I would never have known about Elbow had I not read the Q magazine review on AITB. And now the web helps me find and keep up with many bands like Elbow, that are making great music all over the world but may not show up on the radar where I live. So hooray for this forum! cheers

Hi Folks,

Will apologise in advance for being a part time contributor, not much time with kids etc.

Discovered this site while trawling the internet, can't get enough of them at the moment.

Elbow are one of my most favourite bands providing great tunes, lyrics and an emotional rollercoaster. If i'm honest i missed Asleep In The Back first time around, and really got into them after hearing the wonderful Fugitive Motel.

Have been playing SSK virtually continuously since its release and only stopped to revisit the other three albums.

Hi, I've just joined here, via the link on the Powderblue forum. I've loved Elbow since Asleep in the Back days, when I heard Newborn on a compilation CD and rushed out & bought the album - never looked back since. Very Happy And at present I'm still in post-gig euphoria (Birmingham last night - awesome). Good luck with the forum!
