  1. Can't believe nobody else has posted about this...

    Did any other Brit see Regina on TOTP2 last Saturday performing FIDELITY live in the BBC2 studio? Correct me if I'm wrong, but was this her UK mainstream TV debut?

    It was superb, of course, but suffered from being the last act on (w/subsequent end credits over her performance). Plus the fact that she was credited as 'Regina SPECKTOR' in the Radio Times. Tut, tut...

    But still....a landmark appearance nonetheless.

    Can't attend the Astoria concert next month, as I'm on stage myself (had to miss the Joanna Newsom concert for the same reason this month - grrrrr!!). Have a good time, all of you that are going!!

    thanks

  3. Regina was interviewed by Andrew Collins on BBC 6music live from the Truck Festival last weekend. The piece ran for about five minutes, during which Regina performed 'That Time'.

    You can listen to it again until Sunday 29th at the following weblink:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/6music_aod.shtml?6music/6m_andrew

    It comes in at roughly 2 hrs 25 mins of a 3 hr programme, in case you don't want to listen to the rest of the show.

    thanks

  5. This goes out to anyone who was at the second Queen Elizabeth Hall gig in London last month. Whilst Regina's guitar was being tuned off-stage by her roadie, she said she would treat us to a tune that isn't normally heard outside of her shower.

    She then sang a song about the colour of boys' eyes, but gave no title.

    If you've ever shared a shower with Regina, and can enlighten us further, can you please do so?

    Thanks
