What I want for Christmas is.......
« on: April 22, 2008, 07:58:49 PM »
Well a new Man album of course. Plus, as George has suggested there'll be no tour of Gremany this year, it had better be a good one.

How about trying some of the material out live, before recording it? Apply the law of the jungle to evolve a better album. A proper 40th anniversary tour, covering the Untied Knigdom, Gremany, and as many other countries as can be accommodated.

Onstage I'd like Man to be more flexible in the approach to arrangements. Build a solid platform for sure, but then be willing to reach for the stars and experiment. Allan mentioned the Paget Rooms version of Romain in another topic, extending into a proto-Bananas. Call Down The Moon being birthed from C'mon during the mid-eighties is another example. Learn to fly, but land safely.

I'd also like an apple, a tangerine, a bag of chocolate coins and a pocket torch with a leaky battery.
Boldly going.......

Colin,

I sympathise with you, I had to wait 4 years for an op on my ankle after tearing ligaments. I kept falling over each time I put my foot on uneven ground (and it wasn't the drink!!). It will work out eventually..

This is where I get confused with the new site, where do I put this posting? someone suggested talking about other music. No disrespects to the person who put the posting up but can't trawl through all the other features on this site to find out your name. It's an extremely good idea. Don't know if you were referring to Man related items, there are myriads of music topics we could discuss. From decent music we've come across over the years to venting our spleen about music that basically although vogue is absolute crap. Julian please set up up another heading...
