Ok, it's bad, getting a naughty copy of the album but I'm seeing her live next Thursday and I want to at least know the songs a bit better than I used to. Most I've heard before, live and on video (she's been releasing WKAP videos on Youtube) - but - fuck me; I LOVE THIS ALBUM.
I didn't want to be one of those 'Amanda I love everything that shits out of your arse' kind of fans that seem to populate message boards etc. but right this minute, I'm sure I would love everything that shits out of her arse. Because this album is so godamned good.
To dispel those rumours I've just started about me loving everything that she shits out of her arse, I hated her version of 'Everybody Hurts' - so I don't love everything.
But this, this album?
You've guessed it ... I'll say it again ... I love it.
And I'm SO intrigued now about the video forLeeds United. I went out with Steven (Danger Ensemble) on Saturday night, and he said they were starting rehearsals this week for the video, with a famous burlesque troupe. However, the only thing he could find, with the name of the troupe (I've forgotten their name) on the internet is a bunch of grannies or something. Which I think could be awesome, however the film-maker wasn't too amused apparently.
Anyhoo - I'm going to continue listening to the album - then St. Vincent. I'd forgotten how much I love Annie Clark's voice.
