    I've been thinking about what Nick said in the NH podcast about releasing a 'Best of' but re-recording the tracks to make it a bit more interesting. I thought it might be an idea to give him a pointer as to which tracks people would be interested in hearing on such a release.

    Here's a list of most (all?) of Nick's songs to get people (blue sky) thinking..

    _____________________________________

    Some of my favourites are: Shadowlands, Smithereens, No Truth Up In The Mountains, Lily's Song, The Kissing Gate, Bloom, Evo & Simple so I would go for those as a start point. I've purposely avoided the songs on 'Double Life' as releasing tracks 3 times might be a bit much, but I think there will inevitably have to be overlap.

    Anyway, I'd be interested to hear other people's take on this.

    Best,

    Uriel I've got a zappy little nappy

    I vote for Radio Silence with Gomm guesting, if Saturday was anything to go by!

    And another track with that lass from Real Life singing again wouldn't go amiss!
