15 hours to SLANG! with you, we don't wanna get our hands dirty.
Somewhat interested in hearing Disc 2. I have the Japanese Deluxe version, that included Move With Me Slowly, and the six song acoustic from their single day world tour. Always liked the alternate (Original) version of Truth? Saw the band in Sept of 96, just after Sav cut all of his hair on the None More Black tour. I think Work It Out, Slang and Deliver Me was all they played from the album. There was a tour book with if I recall, mention of Joe's two black dogs, and of the good time they had recording the record in a house in Spain. Someone behind me stole it during the concert. It would be cool if there was a scan of it out there somewhere.
Now the part that truly peaks my interest is digital distribution on iTunes. This is Slang entered on to iTunes for the second time since all albums were removed due to negotiation issues between the old record label. It would be interesting to know what (or who) gave in...
Nice to hear Phil mentioning Calgary on the interview!
I'm one of the only people my age that listens to music older than me....cant wait for Slang!!!
OH MY GOD! Can you buy this "JOE" Doll? I WOULD LOVE ONE. My email address is: Paulalinthorne@gmail.com I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! EXCELLENT JOB, WELL DONE!!!!!!!! :D
I can't wait to revisit this album which is one of my favorites. I was 21 years old when this record came out and was also into much of the 'grunge' coming out at the time....Pearl Jam, STP etc. This album plus the Retroactive before it kept the Leps relevant for me while many of the other 80's bands starting dropping out of favor. I felt they kept their 'Lep' sound but had evolved at the same time. Looking back this still could be my favorite album….although sometimes it depends on my mood
I think a lot of fans that didn't like this record the first time around will be surprised how much they may enjoy the re-issue. At the time this album may have been too much of a departure for many, especially those still hoping for a resurgence of 80’s metal. Getting close to 20 years after its original release, it should be easier to digest and hopefully be appreciated for how good it is.
I've heard a few of the b-sides ('Can't Keep Away From the Flame' is one of my all-time favorites) but looking forward to all the extras they have included with this re-issue.
I wonder with a new album possible next year, if this re-release could be partially done in order to monitor the reception to this style this time around. I would love a new album that picks up where this left off....hint hint
I LOVE YOU STEVEN MAYARD CLARK YOU ARE THOUGHT OF OFTEN BY ME AND OTHER FANS WE WILL MISS YOURR SMILING FACE FOR THE REST OF ARE DAYS.
