Been listening through Tighten Up again (Marky's mix of course), and just what a great album. I say it so much but really, its my favorite BAD album. I would've loved to have heard more from this 88 tour as well. St. Georges and the Assembly Rooms shows are maybe two of the best BAD shows I've heard. I also rewatched an interview with Mick yesterday from 88 and he was talking about how they had plans to tour all around Europe and do this whole tour based around France and all that. I actually got a little mad thinking about this, just because of how sad it was he got sick so soon into the tour. I'm sure those Europe gigs would've been amazing.
I remember when Mick got ill. My friend Roy and I were planning on seeing BAD at the T&C Club (my fave venue at the time). Roy came into work and told me he had just heard that Mick had died. I couldn't believe it thank fuck the rumour was wrong and Mick survived the pneumonia virus.
Damn, it must've been crushing to hear, rumor or not. It makes sense sadly of that going around, considering just how actually close he was to dying.

I know its been talked about too, but the fact that he was able to pull off what he did with reunion tour vocal wise was amazing. I never thought he would be able to sing stuff like V Thirteen or E=MC2 (higher octave) again. He sounded really damn good on that whole tour.
Yep he was brilliant on that tour and the look of sheer joy on his face was worth the price of admission all on it's own.

I am pretty sure that Vitamin C was inspired by Evidently Chickentown by John Cooper Clarke , sounds like it could have been sampled a little as well.

I've said this before but Around the Girl in 80 Ways is just marvellous in every shape and form.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Man, the chord change in the "chorus" of Medicine Show is awesome, and when it does its first run as an instrumental section it grips me.
Inder:
Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)
Boogie With Your Children

Is that the "It was really vile weather" bit?

No, it's the "we took the tube and the high plains too" part. I suppose it's more of a prechorus now that I'm thinking about it.

I thought you must be talking about that bit as that change always gave me goosebumps, especially live. It is just a simple chord change but I think it's the release of tension that really makes it work.
