I don't listen to country music, but everyone pretty much knows who Garth Brooks is.  Remember when he did the Chris Gains (his alter-ego?) CD?  That's what UDS is making me think of.  If it were good, I'd be first in line to buy it, but what I've heard of it from the sounds clips....well, I'm just not impressed.  I wish I were because I know it's JC on at least one track.   Undecided

Is this a bulletin board or a retail store?  LOL.   Grin

If you don't stop it, I may well end up buying the thing and I don't want to!!

You're not very subtle, are you?  LMAO.   Wink

Maybe when JC calls me to tell me how great it is, I'll get it.   Wink Grin Kiss

Of course with his accent, I'd never understand a thing he was saying.   Undecided

there are a few good tunes on it but sadly the best tune would be a mind blowing track if jc sung the whole thing.

A Terrible Beauty is a fantastic album! Makes me think of what the White Album might have sounded like if it had been recorded today. Brilliantly witty lyrics...I totally agree about I Had A Drink About You. "Langton's" voice can sound a little whiney after a few bars. Of all the songs on the album, Gilbert O'Sullivan is my favorite. Favorite line: ...If I had to shoot one and crappity smack the other one, I'd choose Mr. O'Sullivan.

Now that's love.

I took it to mean he was going to shoot the girlfriend and keep obsessing about Gilbert! Wink

There's a rumor floating around that there's a going to be a US single released in July and album release in the early fall. We'll see...I just don't see the masses here as being ready for UDS.

Oh, I'm definitely ready, too. The cool thing is that if and when they come here, they'll have to play in small venues...even better!! I think anybody who appreciates good music and is ready for a little something different will definitely dig em. I just hope their record and/or management company does their part to get the word out.

I guess I'm just a bit pessimistic cause I'm still bitter about the fact that SOSP and CYDMG weren't really given the chance they deserved here, and I truly would hate to see the same fate fall upon any UDS project.  Undecided

"Quirky"  =  sounds like a good idea to start with but you soon get bored of it.  See Vic Reeve's I Will Cure You,  and of course The Pros and Cons of Hitchiking.

The Uncle Devil Show is the best pop cd I've heard in years!!!  I am looking for live recordings of them.  I have several pop items to trade (live), incl. Del Amitri, Candy Butchers, Pearlfishers, Wondermints, Brian Wilson and Dada.  Anyone who has a live Uncle Devil Show recording to trade, please email me at bennyboy01@msn.com.  Thanks! Smiley

I agree with welshgirl here...it's not that good.
As for langton-h, there is only one talent in uds, and it isn't K McD.
