Nice one Hatty - St Bernadettes Social Club, aaah, a 15 minute walk from Bury Vest Towers - enjoyed that little read.

Cheers Hatty for posting. Thumbs Up! The album sounds even more tantalising now.

What was the quote, MT?

Can't recall now, I should write these things down...it was something about the people of Manchester being uniquely welcoming I think...

Thanks for the article! I would be interested too what was written on that fridge magnet What a Face
But I liked most what Guy says here:
"But it was a very conscious decision to say, on the one hand, 'We can't come back with 10 stadium fillers that are going to disappoint everyone who's followed us for years.' On the other hand, it would be churlish to come back with something that's purely art for art's sake, because that's not what we do either. So we decided to do whatever we felt was right, as we always have."

As the man himself says... "So we decided to do whatever we felt was right, as we always have."

which i understand, makes me calm as i was a little unsure about the previous comments about writing from arena's etc... after everything they've written so far, i'm confident they won't personally disappoint me...

haha I have the pens, pencils, magnet, bag, notebook and coaster, got them for Christmas!
Nothing like a bit of stationery, just wish I was organised enough to use it Smile

Guys quote was:

'They return the love around here don't they?'

They are selling them in the Manchester shop, a cool Limited edition Doves tee and fun items for Mark Radcliffe etc too.

They're ace, LongLegs! What a lovely, cultural & civic pride-inducing stash to have. All of those quotes are cool, though I bet the Peter Saville giftwrap doesn't cost Visit Manchester 10p every time they sell a roll... Wink

I got the fridge magnet and pen myself for Christmas.
Apart from my poached egg maker pan thingy, these were my favourite two gifts.

That's a really lovely article! Thanks for posting, Hatty!
It's nice to read that they decided not to fill it (deliberately) with crowd-pleasers.
I have to say that some of my fave Elbow songs are the less obvious ones like Picky Bugger and Don't Mix Your Drinks; - definitely not stadium anthems!
Getting really, really excited about this now!

Very Happy

It's a good interview, but I was expecting some more information. 7th March is near, people!

Well, it seems they won't sell his music out, although I don't really think that a song that talkes about a market can't be pop or commercial or wathever (is this what Guy said or I didn't understand it?) .

I want to listen to new Elbow's music, please! I still have to discover their first albums, but it's not that exciting. This is new! Very Happy Very Happy

The Guardian has up an interesting article that takes a look at the band from the perspective of their A&R guy, Jim Chancellor:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicblog/2011/mar/03/behind-music-elbow

There's an intriguing passage buried deep in the article:
Quote :
Will Elbow break America, like Snow Patrol? "A band has got to want that," says Chancellor.

The conversation then segues in a different direction, away from Elbow. Chancellor should be a politician; that's an ambiguous, noncommittal answer to rival the best of them.
