Duress is quickly becoming one of my favourite Swervedriver songs.
No kidding, that album is so solid.

Duress is probably my very favourite.

If you asked for a top six on Mezcal Head, I'd tell you For Seeking Heat, Duel, Blowin' Cool, Last Train To Satansville, Duress, and You Find It Everywhere, but I couldn't rank them.

Also, I have a sweet Swervedriver snippet lined up for if Phail ever does Bullet The Blue Sky.

That had to be one of the biggest pic spamming sessions yet.

I can't wait for the tour. I've missed doing regular U2VT/U2gigs updates.
I'm also pretty optimistic about that, so let's hope for the best

I bought The Idiot by Iggy Pop (and quietly David Bowie) and Dr. Dre's The Chronic when I was in Melbourne. I had been meaning to buy the latter for fucking ages, I mean you don't grow up in rural South Australia without listening to Dre. Gonna put them on the iPod right now...

Oh, for MJcoolname's benefit, in case you don't know, Phail is a joke U2 cover band comprising Ali on bass, U-Wen (major_panic/the Maj.) on drums, and myself on vocals, guitar, and keyboard. Basically, we phail, i.e. we play intentionally terrible U2 covers. It just started as a joke on these threads but we're actually going to get around to a proper band meeting/recording session sometime soon.

I would like to rope in somebody on guitar so that I can focus on the singing, as I think my guitar playing is going to be TOO bad. But we'll see. We're going to cover the entire October album without even looking at tablatures or anything. We'll just make it up!

Also, Jen and I will occasionally come in for some background IN THIS TOWNs.

Oh, it's going to be such good fun. Though Ali and U-Wen will make me look really bad. They claim they aren't that good at their instruments, and they'll be playing songs they don't know, but at least they PRACTISE. I haven't touched my guitar in ages - and, well, I'm doing vocals because I truly suck at singing.

And yes! I was in on the very early sing-with-me tracks back in 2005 or so and intentionally sung my lines very badly for laughs. I think I'm only in a couple of songs, but I don't remember which.

Oh, we will definitely be uploading them for the postwhorehouse's enjoyment.

Ha, Dr Dre. I'm waiting for the day when Khan actually sends me a Dr Dre album.

Also, have you checked out A Storm In Heaven? I'd be interested to know what you made of it, given your impression of The Verve.

Well go practise then lol. I love to sing, so I did my fair share on some of the more recent songs. Not the most recent songs, didn't have a lot of time to do those. But I particularly liked to do Angel of Harlem, COBL and TUF You don't remember which songs? I want to here you sing!

I'll be waiting for those uploads

Oh man, imagining you listening to Dr. Dre is awesome. I wonder if you'd like it... I don't know what your opinion on rap is. Rap was actually probably my first musical love.

No, I haven't downloaded it yet, I think I might get around to that right now, as I'm putting stuff on my iPod.
