Re: A Little Respect (single)

I personally never cared for Justin Strauss's remixes of ALR. I can't put my finger on exactly why, but the bassline seems out of place or maybe even out of tune. But in general sense, they don't convey much of the fun or melody of the original song. In fact, until some of the more recent mixes came...

Re: Vince’s Studio Blackwing

Those are some great pics! I love the quote where Vince says he never uses the black notes. I guess after that interview, he started expanding his horizons. If you start with B-flat (the 3rd black key in the set of 3 black piano keys) and go down using only black keys, you can play The Soldier's Ret...

Re: Mute 4.0

This is a long overdue note to say thank-you for registering interest in STUMM433 and sorry for our silence since we announced this project earlier this year. ... Mute HQ The irony there, regarding this incredibly stupid project, is not lost on me. Consider it a 5-month-long bonus track, Mute. It's...

Re: Chorus (single)

There are indeed 3. - original on the UK single - 12" Remix on US single - The Spice Has Risen Mix The only difference between the original and 12" Remix is a short edit (around 2:15) that removes a few measures right before the "Partaaaaaay!" vocal. The drum beat sounds like When the Levee Breaks b...

Re: VeryRecords Tweets

Well we've never seen Vince go balls-to-the-wall sci-fi. I mean, you have the random track here and there, and side projects like Clarke & Ware stuff and Reed & Caroline stuff that's very science-y. (I wonder if Reed is involved with this??) But never a full concept album that aims for a sci-fi vibe...

Re: VeryRecords Tweets

This sounds incredible! I've been waiting for a project like this for years!! This makes me incredibly happy to hear. Everything sci-fi that Vince has touched is gold. First Contact, Science Week Theme and Tomorrow's World (the b-side) to name a few. Didn’t V&A talk about doing a space opera at one ...

Re: trouble navigating E4rum since upgrade

Links work for me maybe about 1 time out of 10... but eventually they DO work. Again, I suspect it's just this old operating system. MikeyC had mentioned to me that Mike Depaz was having trouble with the site too. I got to wondering if problems were more widespread and just wanted to make a public p...

trouble navigating E4rum since upgrade

I haven't as active since the forum upgrade due to some other projects and stuff, but also because I get lots of error messages while trying to navigate the site. I kept thinking it would stop eventually, but it hasn't. I usually browse at work and the IT dept has a firewall setup. My computer also ...

Yea this is awful news! I use your site all the time for random lyrics checks and such. It will be missed! Hope you'll stick around here and lots of luck and love with whatever comes next for you :)

Re: Most "beautiful" Erasure songs?

Wow, love all the responses! It warms my heart. There were a few surprise answers, and I lot I would choose myself - particularly She Won't Be Home. But the first one that came up in my mind when I started thinking about others is Tragic (the original instrumental b-side). Grace would be up there to...
