Joni Mitchell - Hejira

Not so much a question as a recommendation. You mentioned on the No Man's Land listening party chat that you weren't familiar with Joni Mitchell's song Amelia, after mentioning that you had tried to write a song about Amelia Earhart for the album. Joni's song is arguably as much about herself as it ...

No Man’s Land

Really enjoying the new album and podcast. Feel like I’ve learned a lot already, and the tunes are great to boot. Early favourites are Graveyard, the Lioness and Catherine Blake (the latter has to be one of the most moving and original love songs I’ve heard in some time). I was wondering if there we...

Re: Tales from No Man's Land

Same here! A really cool idea for a project and the podcast is very interesting. I'm wondering if the format of the podcast might have been inspired by the podcast 'I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats'.

Sam Cooke

I've recently discovered the brilliance of Sam Cooke, and I understand from reading some interviews that you're a fan too. I recall you mentioning a biography of Cooke that you highly recommended - please could you remind me which bio it was? Also, out of interest, what are your favourite songs of C...

Yesterday film

I saw a trailer today for a film called Yesterday in which The Beatles and their music are suddenly erased from history, leading one man to claim their compositions as his own: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-jkkdhxx4o This immediately reminded me of the lyrics of Hey Judas. On closer inspection t...

Re: Poetry of the Deed performance

Brilliant. I for one would love to see it. Your most underappreciated album, in my opinion!

Poetry of the Deed performance

LE3 looks amazing - though unfortunately I won't be able to travel to the States for it!

Are there any plans to perform Poetry of the Deed in full in the UK, much as Love Ire & Song was performed in the US following LE2?

Re: Is anyone out there?!

It's a shame this forum is inactive these days. I've always much preferred this forum to Facebook groups or Reddit. A nice little community, with the added bonus of Frank (and sometimes band members) contributing. I do think the generic phpBB theme that's been in use for a while may be offputting to...

Re: frank vinyl

Got a new code from Xtra Mile and had the same problem - when I clicked 'Download Zip' I got the message "This product is not yet available - please come back after its release date has been reached." However I found a solution - by clicking 'Download' next to each song I was able to download each t...

Re: CDs

There were a few things missing from the Third Three Years though, so you'd need to get the deluxe Tape Deck Heart with bonus tracks, plus the Polaroid Picture EP, and also the Mittens EP which came after.

Re: A few quick questions

Thanks for the reply Frank. I used to administrate phpBB forums many moons ago, so could always lend a hand with the design if needed. The Facebook group has never appealed to me particularly. Have always enjoyed this little forum community and the fact that Frank can just join in the discussion wit...

A few quick questions

Hi, Are there plans for any more London shows this year after Lost Evenings? I have tickets to the LI&S show, which I am very excited about, but I realised too late that in order to hear your new material I should have bought tickets to the other nights which are now sold out! Secondly, are there pl...
