Hmm,
Going out on a limb and stating I am probably the only 52YO male here. Not on a limb in stating the obvious that the boys are the just tremendously talented. I found Elbow thru a TV show called Live at Abbey Road; living I the northeast US (NJ), I had never heard them on any other terrestrial source (they may have been on the satellites!). I literally stood up and replayed their set over and over (3 songs from TSSK ; Grounds/Divorce, Bones of U, and of course, Day Like…). Two young daughters at home (2 and 5) so I missed them last year in NYC. I have purchased the albums out of sequence, and just got LOTFW this past Monday which is an embarrassment of musical riches. It boggles my mind to think they get no attention here in the states. Every listen reveals some new joy; the writing, playing, recording, dynamics, instrumentation, oh and that voice… did you guys notice his voice? Pretty good, right? clown

So, old bastard (should be my screen name) out for now, but will be back to talk music (I am an amateur musician) and will try and get a video of my girls dancing to “Forget Myself”. It will not disappoint.

Hi, bobmc! Glad to see another American on board the Elbow Express! Very Happy Like you, my mind is boggled beyond belief at the fact that we never see/hear Elbow as often as we should on this side of the pond. And yeah, Guy's voice is pretty good, now that ya mention it... Laughing Anyway, welcome!

Hello - Mike here from Bury - feel like elbow are kind of 'our band' with being local and also having attended Stand College (albeit leaving in 1980). Occasionally see one of the guys in Bury - Mark recently spotted at a car park !!!! Hello anyway!

Mike

Welcome from another forum newbie. Quite envious of you being local to the guys. I work kinda near the New Jersey shore which would make Bon Jovi local to me.

And yes, I threw up in my mouth as I wrote that.

Welcome to the board mainscoe and bobmc! It's great to see fans ranging from their own hometown all the way to the other side of the world Smile . And I'm definitely a little envious of your run-ins with the band too!

Anyway! Very warm welcome to the board! Great to see that new members/fans are joining in... even though it's a bit quite around here at the moment. Very Happy
But wait for the next album release!!! Party!

Hey all, I'm John from Bristol. Having a very elbowy day. I was in Manchester overnight so went to find The Temple this morning, then I was tweeted by Craig and now I've found this place. All three of these things make me very happy.

And also, I like Elbow, in case anyone was in any doubt Very Happy

Hello everyone Smile

Glad i found this place as not many of my friends are into Elbow (should be punishable by death i know)

Became a fan after hearing grounds for divorce on the radio years ago, then really got into them when Build a rocket boys! came out. I have a fridge full of Elbow beer and their entire back catalogue Smile

Hi , Im really please I found this forum as not many people around me like elbow and many of my friends frequently question my interest, but that's probably just an age thing . I am really surprised I haven't found this before because I have liked elbow for about 2 years Smile

Hello Smile

Noticed this forum a few months a go but forgot to sign up affraid My name's George, (hence the Noisebox EP reference) and I've been a pretty hardcore Elbow fan for a few years now. I'm also a very proud Jodrellite!

Thanks for having me! Smile
