  3. band on tour

    i missed regina on this tour of uk. i heard that there was a backing band on one or more of the songs. was this the cheesy string section or the magnificent kill kaneda for your honour or both? steve abandondrugs www.myspace.com/abandondrugs1 for samson remix

  5. thought that would grab your attention. unfortunately its the same remix that was going around 6 months ago. to hear the audio version go to www.myspace.com/abandondrugs1 johnnyc - you probably just about remember making a video for my samson remix with a robot baby. i lost it again. if you can be bothered i'd really appreciate it if you can send it again so i could put it up on youtube. thanks very much steve
  6. Regina Demographics

    i'm 28, but i have a massive feeling that the average age went down by probably 2 or 3 years since begin to hope came out cos of its commercial sound. ..... still a bit bitter.. sorry steve samson remix www.myspace.com/abandondrugs1

  9. WHOA! SAMSON??

    great lebowski mash- up also just to put those conspiracy theories to rest: regina, leonard and bob as we've just agreed, the 3 best, most peotic lyricists ever, are all jewish, . david berman (silver jews) and steve malkmus (pavement) are close behind. so lets all wish regina happy new year (shana tova) for the end of the month steve www.myspace.com/abandondrugs1 = samson remix

  17. when i saw regina twice about a year ago and also a year and a half ago, she played the song 'begin to hope' and it was instantly in my top 3 of her slow songs. which is another way of saying i loved it beyond belief. so i went and downloaded a shabby live version of it off the internet, and despite its bad recording, listened to it loads and waited for the day i'd be able to hear it on cd, sounding perfect, just her and the piano and no background noise. then when the name of the album leaked a few months back, i was finally going to get my wish. then, as we all know by now, the song isnt on the album. had it been it might have been slightly worsened by the polished commercial production, but that's another rant. so why the hell isn't on the album????? maybe part of the answer came last night when regina played in london and a girl called out "can you play the song begin to hope?". now this to my absolute dismay is what regina replied "i'm sorry i dont know how to play that anymore", or words to that effect. now what the hell is going on? was the album title called begin to hope just a ploy so we would begin to hope that begin to hope was going to be on it? or was the album going to include it originally and seeing as regina didnt know how to play it anymore they scrapped the song but kept the album title. or, please, please, please. please if youre reading this regina, the plan all along was to release it as a single, bare bones, piano and your beautiful voice, in the not too distant future and it was going to be the biggest and best surprise? who has the answer to this mystery & who will back me on the campaign to release it??? steve www.myspace.com/abandondrugs1 - check out my samson remix
  18. covers?

    hey - that was me who asked her to do a cover at the barfly in '04. not only did she say she didnt know any, but i got booed by the crowd. i felt so small, and since then she's gone and done beautiful covers of hallelujah and chelsea hotel.....they wouldnt boo me now. steve check out my samson remix on www.myspace.com/abandondrugs1

  22. my samson remix link - what do you think??

    last year i spent 3 months on a labour of love to remix samson before i saw our gorgeous regina at the secret garden party in england. there, i gave regina the cd, and handed a few out to people in the front. after sporadic attempts to get the ok to use it or publicise it to see if regina and her peeps mind or they are happy with it, i've decided to put it on the board here. i hope this is ok. i'm not that familiar with board etiquette when it comes to these things. anyway, please come to my website where you can download it for free... http://www.abandondrugs.co.uk/process.php?PHPSESSID=e8a...CategoryID&AlbumID=3 click "free download" in the bottom right corner and listen and (hopefully) love. please let me know what you think by replying to this thread or posting on my message board. http://www.abandondrugs.co.uk/board/ enjoy, and tell regina to get back to me on it. steve
