  1. Making Records

    I wonder if this is slightly autoboigraphical, (or as its not really a story i spose i mean personal). we know that many of regina's songs are not necessarily 'about herself' in the conventional sense. the only one i can think of atm is rockland county, but making records might be. the lyrics are amazing, and it seems to talk about things that, as a songwriter/performer/general all-round genius, she might feel. anyway, i dont no whether it could be or not, but it is such a brilliant song, and the lyrics are so funny. i just felt like i needed to talk about it for a while. i'd be interested to hear what other people thought of this song (as from what i can see its not been the subject of very much discussion so far) "I know that I am lucky I make shit up all the time And I start to believe it myself Just 'cause it rhymes But I'm so inconsistent My handwriting changes every other word"

  3. Favourite Regina Album?

    Its very close between songs and soviet kitsch for me, but i think songs nicks it just. Lacrimosa, Lulliby and Lounge are so beautiful, both musically and lyrically. ALso Daniel Cowman, Oedipus, Prisoners & Bon Idee are amazing! And Ne Me Quitte Pas is a lovely little light-hearted ending. If i had to put the albums in order it would be (at the moment): Songs Soviet Kitsch Begin to Hope 11:11 I reckon her next album will definitely challenge for the top spot tho. Some of her new songs are sublime!
  4. DUDE! the next album!

    i am so excited. syringe if this is true this will definietly be her best album so far. human of the year is such an amazing song, as is blue lips, man of a thousand faces, loveology & dulce... id love to see devil come to bethlehem on there as well tho. that is such a beautiful and meaningful song.
  5. Human Of The Year

    i think she will release it at some point, cos she asked people not to record it etc... it is an amazing song. try here... http://brottishluv.multiply.com/music/item/1
  6. Tears and Regina

    there are a few songs that affect me, though they dont necessarily make me shed a tear or two. rockland county especially. i was walking home along a main road the other day listening to it on my ipod, and there was a little group of trees over a fence next the pavement, and i just climbed the fence and sat there for a while. don't know why. the song just affected me in such a way. somedays affects me aswell, and human of the year. i heard that for the first time live and i fluctuated between smiling, laughing out loud and being very melancholy. amazing song. ghost of corporate future is one of those that just makes me reflect on everything. but there are also so many funny songs that i find myself laughing at. the end of daniel cowman is so funny, and baby jesus and bobbing for apples live are hilarious...
  7. Bristol Trinity Centre - 10th Feb

    I saw her in Newcastle on the 18th, and the set she played then was pretty much the same, except she played human of the year instead of man with a thousand faces. Amazing gig!
  8. band on tour

    it was just your regular guitar, bass and drums/percussion. i saw her on her birthday in newcastle, and she played your honour in a ver kill kenada-esque way, but also did "better" and on the radio and all that with a band. was really good. it added a different atmosphere, though still as intense and brilliant as she is on her own. stuff like love(you're a whore) was amazing aswell, and they even had a xylophone (though i think it was a synthesiser) on apres moi, and had that werid synth sound in 20 years of snow. i saw her live in london last summer without a band, and it was brilliant, and ive seen her last week with a band, and it was brilliant. every artist needs to change and develop, and this is a step in that direction for regina...
  9. EXACTLY how i feel about regina..

    That quote is brilliant. Sums it up perfectly.
