CB - I got an email yesterday, I think it's on page 2 of this thread.

Thanks LongLegs - I did get one after 8 sometime last night Thumbs Up!

Great news. cheers

Not worried about the songs being written with arenas in mind as their other stuff works in arenas, at festivals and probably stadiums too. Hope we can hear them in a smaller venue. (Hint Hint)

Good title, but I really hope they sort out the punctuation.

Build a rocket, boys!

Best email I've received in a long while, that's for sure!

I like Oliver's work, although the combination of the cover and the description in the Guardian about it being "encouraging" gives me a bit o' The Fear. It has echoes of Keane's attempt to get sunny by putting out that rubbish heap that goes by "Perfect Symmetry."

Very amusing.

I, too, am very sad when it comes to punctuation - however, in this case, it deserves no comma before 'boys' - gives the title more flow !

Craig was trying to work out if the comma seperates the command from the people being addressed, or is it down to taste.

Does it depend on how you say it,is it a matter of taste, why is it all in lowercae etc!

Ian Rankin even got involved!


What do you guys think?

Personally as a general rule I'm not keen on lowercase titles but as you say it's a matter of taste and I'm sure with the graphics (like the usual Elbow logo) it'll be brill. Smile I quite like it without the comma even if it's incorrect, but you have to be careful to see the "a" and the "s" otherwise you could be building robot "rocket boys" (and we don't want to get confused with Elton John's Rocket Man or whatever, do we now? Shocked )

It'll be intersting to see it in context with the lyrics - and even more interesting to hear it of course. Very Happy

I was a composition/lit major at university, and I usually have no tolerance for poor punctuation. But when it's music...puh-leeeze! Rockers are allowed to do whatever they want with punctuation! R.E.M. had "Lifes Rich Pageant", Flaming Lips had "Do You Realize??" (because one question mark just wasn't enough), and then there's Spiritualized with "Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space". And that's off the top of my head - there's plenty of other poor punctuators in the history of rock. So, don't worry yerself, Craig - we're not grading for grammar, punctuation or spelling. Just awesomeness. Very Happy

Good point there, MBV - safety first! We certainly wouldn't want any of this happening!

It's not my taste! It's what was said on twitter. Just repeating peoples numerous comments!

I think we should just refer to it as BARB! :-)

I'm just miffed that it won't fall in chronological & alphabetical order anymore. Of course, TSSK made that kind of difficult...
