check out the holes in Glen's guitar.. He's had the guitar since he was young.. The holes get bigger everytime he plays it and in fact he told the story about how he felt this one sliver piece of wood was gonna break that nite and sure enough it did.. I tell ya he plays so intensely on that thing..

Angela,
If you haven't seen the movie they did called Once wait till december when it get released to dvd.. The movie got rave reviews...

LOL, aw. Eh, hey, if it still works, though, it's worth the occasional wear and tear, right?

I have not seen it yet, no. I would love to, the reviews had me curious (as did the video for "Falling Slowly"). Was wondering when the movie would be released on DVD, I will certainly be on the lookout for it next month. Thanks for the tip .

I love the song, too, it's so beautiful. I've played it quite a bit ever since hearing it . I really like hearing these guys' voices together.

And yeah, it's gotten me teary-eyed as well-particularly when I watch the video, for some reason. Kinda like what happened when I first heard Damien Rice's "The Blower's Daughter" and saw the video for that song.

Thanks again for that link, that was great. If these two ever come near me in the future, I will definitely try and see them.

Angela

Some nice trivia, Glen also uses that guitar in Once. Look closely next time.

Of the three studio versions (Frames, Swell Season and Once soundtrack) I prefer the version by The Frames. And it was massive when they played it live this summer. It was the last song of their show and afterwards I was still in trance for at least 15 minutes or so.

cool.. I really would love to catch The Frames at some point.. As soon as they come around again I won't miss it.

Also, what was cool was I had totally forgotten that Glen was in the movie The Commitments. I haven't seen that in years.. I plan on getting it to rewatch it..

yeah I know he does..

He also told a funny story about how he was touring in Japan and was doing a show with his guitar when the CEO of Takamine came up on stage and presented him with a new Takamine.. He said he was so moved by it.. And then later on in the dressing room after the show someone informed him that the reason he was given the new guitar was that the CEO was embarrassed by his using his battered guitar. Trying to save face so to speak.. Of course Glen still uses his 'battered' guitar as opposed to the new one..

ok.. I had to bump up this thread cuz I just can't get enough of The Swell Season! Love their album and the Once soundtrack.

If you haven't heard of these guys go to itunes and listen.. And if you haven't seen ONCE, GO RENT IT FOLKS.. truly a remarkable lil film that stays with you. Cross your fingers that they get the grammys they are up for as well as the Oscar.

The songs that stand out on the Swell Season album are: Leave, Lies, Falling Slowly, When your mind is made up, Drown out.

I am also getting into the Frames too now thanks to this and digging that as well..

And a little bit of nostalgia for ya, Glen is in the movie The Commitments that came out in the late 80s. He had the long curly hair (his name in the film was Outspan)then and a decent role in it too... I just recently bought this dvd having not seen the film in years... It was great to see it again after all these years.

I bought the soundtrack last week. It was quite shocking to see Glen in the booklet with that long hair.
