I know I've heard the song Fear of a Blank Planet... not given the whole album a go yet.

Eh, I was gonna stay up late anyway
No, In Absentia should be represented fairly strongly. I expect to hear at least three songs from it. Deadwing should also offer up at least two or three, including Halo - which live takes on a bit of a different form to studio.

My bets for songs we're sure to hear: Blackest Eyes, Trains, Halo, FOABP, Anesthetize, Normal. Even Less is very highly probable. I'm sure there will be surprises though, as it's been a few months since they've played live. I'm praying for Radioactive Toy - it hasn't been done for a couple of tours, but it's a live classic and I'm hoping they'll do it for us since they haven't visited before.

That's really strange! Mine does NOTHING when I plug in new headphones. Almost everything else produces a silly message, but headphones evokes no action at all from the computer.

No other computer I've owned or heard about has done that either. I think this one just has OCD or something...

Like owner, like computer...

You can kinda tell this album came just after SW produced Opeth's Blackwater Park album. Then there's Futile and Orchidia on the Futile EP, which are even heavier. I would die of joy if they cranked out Orchidia; it's one of the best instrumentals I know.

But nowadays, SW regrets putting Wedding Nails on In Absentia. He's been quoted as saying "that replaced Drown With Me - looking back on it, I can't figure out why." They've been doing Drown With Me this tour and I hope it makes it to at least one of the Aussie gigs. I can't recall if I put the studio version on the CD for you, but I definitely put the acoustic live version from We Lost The Skyline, which I think is just amazing.

My computer is doing its best slow death act. It's been clinging to life for about 2 years now! I might buy a new one soon ...

And are you going to do a running diary of In Absentia or something?

OK, folks, Collapse The Light Into Earth --> Orchidia is quite possibly one of the most awkward segues in history.

But mother of God, what a riff!

That sounds like a challenge to me!



Theme from The Swan -> Mofo?


Righto, after In Absentia, I'll listen to that live Drown with Me (I can't find a studio version), then the newer stuff....

I don't think I did ... I can e-mail it though!

And I knew you'd appreciate .3 (which is bizarrely properly known as "DOT three", not "POINT three"; I still use the latter). The best part is that it's shown up in this tour's setlists sometimes.

Yay email

Which side of the stage does the bassist usually inhabit?

This is a challenge I can get into. Viva Davidoff --> The Electric Co.? Viva Davidoff --> any black metal song ever?

Damn, I must've thought I'd e-mailed you Drown With Me's studio version earlier or something. It's one of my PT favourites. The acoustic version is from October last year and I think it's the highlight of We Lost The Skyline. SW and John Wesley's vocal harmonies are great.

I'll attach it to the reply I'm about to send to your last e-mail - which means it'll take a while to send, whee.

I think Colin Edwin is to the right as you look at the stage, i.e. same as Adam. Best of all, Colin Edwin is a Melbourne boy!
