Forgotten while you’re here
Remembered for a while
A much updated ruin
From a much outdated style…

Best I could do. I’ve got a superlative live version from Apple Music but I cannot find it on YouTube.

I bloody love Jellyfish and the work of pretty much anyone who was ever involved with them – Roger Joseph Manning, Jason Falkner, Jon Brion, the production of Jack Joseph Puig, Imperial Drag etc etc. It took me a while to get into them, but I’m now something of a completist. Live versions of The Kind is Half Undressed are always mind blowing, as are the vocal free ‘Stack-o_tracks’ versions of the albums.

I was very lucky to find a copy of a boxed set a few years ago, called Fan Club – it has 4 Cds.
Worth looking for, but expensive.

Hey @TrypF I just found out this mornin’ that this was released earlier this year. Now got a copy wingin’ it’s way to me. Yeehaa!!

Looks great, I’ll put that on the list. I’m most excited about the forthcoming Pugwash album, which is Thomas Walsh and … Jason Falkner. Badlands, I got the Fanclub box set, for an eye-moistening price which I split with a fellow obsessive. It was worth it.

In the breathless hush of 4 a.m.
In the dark sits a sad cliché
Cloaked in the navy blue of slowly fading stars..
(Glutton Of Sympathy)
Brilliant band – love them!

Ok, we’ve referenced The Hooters, Rainmakers and now Jellyfish recently which is certainly a flashback to the group’s of my late teens that made the cut and still get played. If someone posts about Chris Whitley, Burning Tree, The Unforgiven, Love & Money or The Black Crowes in the next 24 hours I’ll start to get worried!
Jellyfish are / were wonderful and here’s a concert that’s on youtube.
The Grays album is great also.

Ah, Love and Money . . . they were a good group @ne1, part of Glasgow’s Park Lane Studio rooster*. I have a few vinyl and CD singles by them (“Winter” being a particular favourite) including a four track EP given away with Cut magazine in ‘87.
Bass player Bobby Paterson was in a band called Sandy McLelland and The Backline. I bought their 1979 LP because it featured the Kokomo Voice Squad and I remember from a thread some years ago that a well-known Afterworder is namechecked in the credits (I’ve just looked and it’s true!). Maybe he will read this and tell more . . . .

Hi Peanuts, thanks for the info, that compilation looks interesting and the credits story sounds intriguing.
That winter track is a good one, for me Strange Kind of Love is the album I return to most often.

Holy crap. how did I miss this band? They are awesome.
I was going to ATM to ask which album to buy then after some research I realised they’d only made two so I got them both 🙂
Thanks for this, Afterword

Am I alone in being put off by their haircuts?
