I can't put into words what this girl could have been.
When I first heard this woman sing I couldn't believe my ears. She had a genuine retro sound with a voice every bit as good as the greats, but with a contemporary approach.
To watch her go from a young girl (she's still only 25) with a once in a lifetime talent, to the fucking disgrace of a mess she is now, both saddened and dissapointed me more than any other artist I've ever had hope for.
Death, or a miracle are the only hope she has now of achieving what she could have had.

I can't stand that Palin woman

If only for the reason she looks exactly like my ex girlfriend.
Or at least how I would picture my ex to look like in about 15 years time.

9 : Special Editions Of Albums That Are Released Just A Few Months After the Original Album

The picture you see above is my own personal copy of Echo & the Bunnymen's Evergreen album. You'll notice if you read the top sticker that the album came with a bonus disc featuring every John Peel session they ever recorded. I should also point out this version came out just a few months after Evergreen was released and it cost exactly the same price as the original album.

Now I don't know about you but had I rushed out and bought the album when it came out ( Like most diehard fans would do) and then walked into a record shop a couple of months later I would have been mightily pissed off at seeing this. Thankfully I hadn't got chance to buy the album before this came out so I was lucky. As it happens the Peel Sessions disc is better than the actual album itself but thats besides the point.

Or course i'm not including all special editions of albums in this , only ones like the above that come out a few months later with a live disc or a remix disc or whatever. I have no problems if they're released simultaneously. Take AC/DC for example. When they released their 1991 'Live' album you had the option of buying a single disc version of the album or a double disc version of the album for a little extra. Had I heard the album before I bought it I wish I could have gone for the zero discs option, but never mind.

I should also like to single out The Who (again). For a band I love they seem to be cropping up in this list rather a lot. As everybody knows the original version of Live at Leeds only had about 5 or 6 songs on it. For the 25th anniversary they released an extended version of the album with about 11 or 12 songs on it. Now I didn't buy it when it came out but a couple of years after so you could imagine my annoyance when I discovered that for the 30th anniversary of the album they'd re-released it again , this time with the WHOLE show. Which makes you wonder why they couldn't do that 5 years earlier in the first place.

And while i'm on the subject of record companies ripping off people i'd like to deliver a big fuck you to the major labels for the practice of releasing one or two *Bonus Songs* on new albums exclusively for the British market so they could justify charging about £4-5 more for the album than the rest of the world and stopping shops from selling cheaper imported versions. Downloading illegally couldn't come here quick enough in my opinion.

Exactly the same happens with DVD'S. I have 3 versions of Halloween. 2 of the Passion of The Christ. 2 of The Terminator. 2 of Fight Club and I did have 2 versions of Raging bull but i got that sorted. There are newer versions of Lock, Stock, Picnic At Hanging Rock and Monster that are on my to buy list. It's a bugger but that's what these marketing guys get paid for. Tossers.

8 : Audience Apathy

Here's a picture of me watching Asian Dub Foundation supporting Radiohead a few years ago.*

I know most support acts are rubbish but at least come to that conclusion by actually watching them (As it happens Asian Dub Foundation are an awesome live act). I hate watching a band only to discover that there's nobody within a 100 mile radius of me because no matter what you do you just look sad & pathetic.

* A reconstruction of it anyway

ADF are fecking ace and I will be seeing them on their next tour. I was supposed to see them this year but I could'nt make it . Although it is only vaguely connected, I was the only person in the whole of the cinema to watch George A. Romero's long awaited 'Land Of The Dead' a few years back. At least I could put my feet up and fart in peace lol
