  1. I'm always uncomfortable watching those pictures... you can see that they aren't happy to be there.
  2. Yeah I had the same reflection. Plus he has now lost his two parents. I really hope he's OK.
  3. That's strange. I see it's on Spotify but both In Love With a Bad Idea and Buffalo Seven are not available...
  4. It was for AOB. He had throat surgery to remove nodules on his vocal cords and couldn't speak/sing for a while. The first song he wrote for the record was Tripoli which he had to sing in his head because until he could sing again. I don't think the singing lessons were an idea of his then girlfriend. I remember him saying he had to re-learn how to sing after that and since his nodules were cause by the way he sang before, he had to learn to sing correctly. He recorded AOB with this new singing method which is why there's no hard screaming on it like on previous records.
  5. Matt didn't tour the record. He did do some shows in 2002 indeed with his new band but there was no tour as such. In this 2002 interview he says he started writing it in October 2001 and finished in February 2002 and the recording was planned for June/July. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dedSkvsGZr8
  6. Yes, this was confirmed by some news outlets https://www.kelownanow.com/watercooler/news/news/Okanagan/Kelowna_resident_and_former_Matthew_Good_Band_bassist_dies_at_52/ https://www.iheartradio.ca/kfun-99-5/music-news/canadian-musician-rich-rock-priske-dies-at-52-1.12952187
  7. That would be great! Any information is gold to us MG nerds I didn't know it wasn't on the vinyl. That's such a shame! It's one of the best songs from that record. I remember when people were talking about it online (because before the internet it was hard to say what that song was) and I do wonder if it became such a classic because it was hidden. We had to dig to find the title, make out the lyrics, talked about why it was hidden, how different it was from other songs on the record, how similar it was to the Lo-Fi B-Sides/Beautiful Midnight era and so on. And as you said it was a niche thing in the 90's and it kind of made fans feel like they knew a song that no one else did, much like people who knew Endless Nameless from Nevermind. Like Matt was interviewed in 1999 saying that he loved album tracks more than singles because it somehow makes you feel like you're the only one in the world who knows those songs. Maybe that helped it get the... well somewhat cult status it had before it was readily available everywhere.
  8. Thanks again for the answer and the insight! It's not rare for Matt to reuse things he wrote and didn't use throughout his career indeed! He did it on Moving Walls recently. Omissions definitely deserved to be more in the spotlight with the other songs rather than hidden in the end. Why was it decided to be put there? I see Haven't Slept in Years as the opening to the second half of the record but to me Omissions is definitely an album closer (maybe just because I'm used to it that way).
  9. Thank you for the detailed reply! It's really appreciated! In your video you mention "I Dream of Dolphins". I'm guessing that became The Sharks of Downtown? Was a new version of Dancing Invisible ever recorded?
  10. Those are amazing! I wish Matt could see those and consider your work for his next record!
  11. From what I can recall, Carmelina, at least the first verse, was partly inspired by an event, I believe it was a murder but I'm not sure. So the first lines would actually be about a stabbing and not sex. But don't quote me on that.
  12. Hi John Thank you so much for this! We MG nerds love that! From what I understand from your video, the transition to the MGB with Ian and Geoff was actually more gradual that it seemed on the outside. I believe I saw that Ian was with the old lineup at some point until they left and Geoff joined. Is that right? How involved was Dave in the making of the record? Given he joined as a permanent member afterwards, was he there a lot during the making of the record or did he join after? How did the transition between the previous material and the new material happen? Was it just that Matt started writing in a different style or was it a conscious move? Why was LOTGA kept as a name for the record if the title track was scrapped? It's a good name but I remember how surprised and confused I was when the pre-LOTGA demos were leaked online and I learned that LOTGA was actually a song. I'm confused about the "Lost Album". Who was the lineup record? Was there anything saved from those sessions? Did any of the songs recorded for that session make it onto LOTGA? If not were they on the History Teacher bootleg? What style were they in? The pre-LOTGA folky style or the LOTGA more rock style? Were the songs from Raygun already floating around during the recording of LOTGA? Sorry for the 100,000 questions Thanks!
  13. Hello John, Welcome to The Bored! :) So, to answer your question "Perhaps I should?" YES!! YES PLEASE!!! That is all, thank you! PS: If you can include stories about everything you've done with Matt, videos, pictures, storyline, etc. That would be amazing.
  14. Wow... this was published less than a week after AOB came out... His mind was made up pretty early!
