Matthew Good - Hospital Music

Recommended Posts

Beyond excited for this one. Not too concerned about the lack of Can't Get Shot. I mean, it was good, and IS good... But the recorded version isn't too shabby in quality, either. Maybe he's just going to let that one lie, & I'm fine with that.

 

Glad to see "She's In It For the Money" on there, and "The Boy Come Home"

 

Wonder if "When Hollywood Runs Out of Indians" will show up in another form somewhere down the line.

I dunno... was that even really a song or more an experimental intro to Metal Airplanes?

I'm looking forward to this 'Street Team' thing, as well.

 

I can do Mississauga and probably Toronto, Meg and I can do Hamilton...

 

Gotta spread the word!

I disagree. I think the quality of the "Can't Get Shot..." recorded (i have the one from the NF store, dunno if there's another??) is pretty crappy, even for a demo/b-side. It would have been cool to get a high quality version.

 

I'm also upset that "If I Was a Tidal Wave" got cut. Its my favorite demo/b-side Matt has done since WLRRR came out, along with Black Helicopter. I think its an important song, its a wonderful protest song for our time. But the demo he already recorded is of excellent quality so thats great, but Black Helicopter was also recorded very well but its still on the album. Maybe Matt chickened out about releasing it because it is so political, as he mentioned once before he played it live.

 

For me i'd like all new tracks, unless a certain demo song was recorded poorly (like a live track). But "If I Was A Tidal Wave" is one of those songs that i don't want on the album for me (since i've already got a great version), but for other people to hear when they buy the CD. btw i don't really like "The Boy Come Home".

 

I'm down for this "Street Team" thang. I think an internet campaign would be great too. I'll be putting tracks, album info etc. on my MySpace page to get the word out! Too bad Matt took down his official MySpace page. Calling radio stations & MuchMusic/'MTV Canada' (if there's a video) will be key too!

Matt "chickening out" of releasing a song because it's too political seems VERY unlikely. Listen too "Pledge of Allegiance", "In A World Called Catastrophe", "21st Century Living", and almost the entire White Light Rock & Roll Review album.

 

He has his reasons for not including the song and I'm sure they're good ones.

A deluxe edition for hospital music maybe......... Didn't he say something if you couldn't get a double cd he was going to stream the others songs on the site (or something along those lines)?

By the sounds of the title of the record, a lot of the lyrics were probably written while he was in the hospital last year, so I'd definitely say it's a more personal album than a political album like WLRRR was, which I think makes cutting Tidal Wave, Can't Get Shot and Breath of a Nation an understandable thing.

Yes I completely agree. It's a personal album for Matt and I think cutting the political stuff was a good choice.

It's likely it will lead to a better listen this way anyways.
