Listening to TSSK right now and just had to add that the bit of piano at the end of Mirrorball's chorus is quite possibly the most beautiful thing I've ever heard.

Crikey Craig, didn't mean to embarrass you, but you could have got the name of the forum right Wink

I think huh is refering to the fact that the interviewer asks Craig if any of the people who run these forums turn out to be strange when he meets them.

I think you should be answering no to this questions if you want any of the perks mentioned by Craig in his interview Smile

Since Craig has thrown his toys out of the pram in the 'Elboys' thread, I'll just give this thread a gentle *bump* back to the top to keep him happy.

Craigs best moments.....

Piano: 'Friend of Ours', 'Great Expectations', 'Scattered Black and Whites', 'Powder Blue'.

Organ: 'McGregor', ''I've Got Your Number', 'Any Day Now'.

Cool Noise: 'Coming Second', 'Leaders of the Free World (synth part)', 'My Very Best'.

Craig is a musical genius and we should all respect his amazing musical ear and brain for what he has achieved with Elbow. He is a fantastic pianist and producer who seems to really be an integral part of the music.

Long Live The Potter Brothers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

xx.

The playing on Scattered Black and Whites amazes me every time, particularly the short, low, note which he plays in a very unexpected timing, but it works so well.
