My Kingdom for a Horse

Post by CanadianKid » Tue Aug 23, 2011 3:57 pm

Hey Frank,

I noticed that in your European Tour Diary part 3 you were playing a clip from your song "My Kingdom for a Horse" while Matt acted as your new guitar strap. (around the 3:30 mark). I've seen a few of your sets over the past couple of years and that song never seems to be on there. I was wondering if you have any plans on throwing that one back into the lineup some time?

I really think you should as it's a cool song and quite reminds me of Neil Young.

Cheers,

Brad

Would be really cool to hear some of the songs on SIFTW which aren't played much... Romantic Fatigue, A Decent Cup of Tea, Must Try Harder etc.

I, for one, consider this to be very good news. Easily my favourite song from that album.

me too. playing old songs is fun sometimes. it is also more interesting for me to be playing newer stuff as well, mind.

One of the very few Frank songs I've never heard live is Must Try Harder and I love it, so play that one Turner!

Surely the SIFTW songs will show themselves on the special guest set at Leeds which you are quite obviously not performing.

I really love Wanderlust at the moment. Gorgeous song. My mum is really into One Foot Before The Other. Facts.

Hey Frank,

I got tickets for your upcoming show in Glasgow on the 25th of November. Any chance "My Kingdom For a Horse" can find itself into the setlist?

Cheers
