  1. @Scotty: awesome FLACs, thanks a heap!

    Regina would be proud you know; I spoke with her at the Edinburgh gig in 2005 and when I said that I'd acquired most of her stuff at that time from the internetz she basically said "cool" and was really annoyed at the record company insisting on the FBI warning on the newly pressed Soviet Kitsch CDs.

    BTW I have got six legitimately purchased items of hers, so I hope I've put some good money in her dear pockets.

    @clementine: big points for scoring 11:11 ! have you managed to scan the cover? Apologies if I've missed a link somewhere if you have...

  4. the Camden gig was good, but i thought Reg was very quiet between songs. i saw her at CabaretVoltaire in Edinburgh a few months back, and she was really chatty and interacting with her audience much more. both were great gigs and i was chuffed to be there.

    i thought Matt Pond PA (the support band) were pretty good. i spoke with the drummer and lead singer after the show, we did share a mutual admiration of the fantastic Spoon from Texas. look 'em both up.

    thanks

    and regina will slap you!

    hmmm, that's kinda harsh!

    funny story: i was at her Edinburgh gig and spoke with her after her show, having just purchased Songs and Soviet Kitsch at the stall.

    i admitted to her that i had, up until then, pirate mp3 versions of all three albums, and she actually said that sharing music (including her own) was cool and should be encouraged.

    she also said she fought very hard with her label not to include the sinister FBI anti-piracy warning on the back of her disc, but they insisted. she was very annoyed about it.

    i'm still glad i bought her CDs, cos she signed one for me :-)

  6. i downloaded the flacs ok, ued two progs to convert to WAV to burn to CD: first was Audio Conversion Wizard v1.8 and that choked on most of the flac files, for some reason. just terminated with no message.

    the other was it's big brother: Advanced WMA Workshop v2.1.1b that now supports flac conversion. it happily converted all the files. go figure.

    anyway, thanks *heaps* to whoever recorded this show: i was there, standing precariously on the benches at the back ! (i'm about 5'5" or therabouts, in fact, about the same height as regina, judging by the photo of her and i from meeting her after the show, although she has a *lot* more hair than i do ;-)

    i had thought i'd missed the first 15-20 mins cos i was eating somewhere :-( so i really appreciated being able download the show. as it happens, i only missed the first two numbers. it was a really chirpy gig, lots of fun, regina chuckled a lot, and heard some fab new songs, especially liked the two last ones, Silly Eye Colour Generalizations and Baby Jesus. what a hoot! and Us just sent tingles right up my spine.

    i agree with her anti-protest-protestors: Regina Is Awesome!
