I have to throw in and say Lungfish are without a doubt my favorite band and have been for many years. Unfortunatly I discovered them about a week after they did their UK tour with Circus Lupus, about 1993, circa "Talking songs...". I had to wait until 2003 to actually see them, when I was in San Francisco, obviously a bloody amazing gig. This was just before the release of "Love is love". Nathan Bell had just left and Sean Meadows had re-joined, therefore pretty much all the material they played was stuff Sean had previosly played on: "Sound in time" and "Indivisible", which although odd for band to be touring playing only (almost) 10 year old material, was fantastic as those two albums are very very good! By the time they made it to the UK again in 2004 the set was still largely those two albums plus stuff from "Love is love" and did anyone notice the cover of "Well alright" (a Buddy Holly song more commonly known for the version by Blind Faith)?
Every new Lungfish album offers something new while remaining very much in the Lungfish mould, rather like the Fall I suppose. some of my fave moments incluce, "Instrument" from "Rainbows from atoms" (pertty much the perfect song), "X-ray the pharoah" from "Sound in time" (have they ever been heavier?), "Computer" from "Pass ans stow" (where the drums come in!), "My fool heart" from "Talking songs..." (they still used verses and choruses back then!), "Space orgy" from "Unanimous hour" (what an album opener, especially after the slightly patchy "Artificial horizon", this track was like "we still own it!"), too many other to mention.
I have to say i've wrestled with "Feral hymns" sicne it came out, it doesn't keep my attantion, perhaps the production lacks something? Theres some great tracks there tho.
Can you really be sure of the goddamn time of day?
