View Full Version : Starsailor + Phil Spector = Aaargh!

Aren't you happy when... Phil Spector comes out of retirement again?

Aren't you worried when... He still shows signs of mental illness?

Aren't you terrified when... This in a new turn manifests itself in him picking Starsailor (http://www.worldpop.com/alternative/news/news_story.cfm?id=800) to work with?

Starsailor played a couple of songs with Donovan at Glastonbury. They must have a thing about old guys...

15-07-2002, 11:12:50
Which ones are Starsailor? Did they do that alcoholic song?

That is such an annoying song.

"Good souls", on the other hand, is great.

15-07-2002, 13:15:36
They've got that on the website, I'll give it a listen.

15-07-2002, 13:17:56
It's better, still got that guy's annoying voice.

What? Even me? Who bought the album?

15-07-2002, 18:52:39
Good question, who did buy it?

15-07-2002, 20:38:02
Definately not me, they suck more than Funky's mum.

I listen to it while i'm with Funky's mum.

16-07-2002, 16:27:03
She said you've never got past the intro to the first song.

The Shaker
16-07-2002, 16:29:23
She's that good.

I bought the album.

16-07-2002, 21:37:22
Why did you ask then? :confused:

If they were really "good souls" then they would know when to shut up...

17-07-2002, 14:31:46
They don't do it for me

17-07-2002, 14:40:56
Aren't Starsailor and Oasis having some kind of verbal war?

Stupid publicity stunts :rolleyes:

17-07-2002, 15:53:13

I didn't. The full quote was "What? Even me? Who bought the album?". The second question mark exists only to match speech patterns.

17-07-2002, 21:45:10
Yes, I know I just have a really crap sense of humour.

17-07-2002, 21:54:00
I can’t believe Funkodrom didn’t declare 100-0 there.

17-07-2002, 22:02:46
It didn't seem fair.

What can I say? You do "a bit slow" so very convincingly.

Anyway- I can understand people finding his voice a bit trying. He tries to sing like Tim Buckley, but just can't pull it off. Still, if I can put up with JJ72 I can put up with this.

18-07-2002, 23:44:43
Thanks, I work hard on it. :D

Why would you buy an album that you only put up with?

Did JJ72 do 'Oxygen'?
I really liked that song.

Lazarus and the Gimp

The JJ72 album has got three killer tracks, and a load of pooh. Fortunately, those three are good enough to justify the album.

Yup. They did "Oxygen". And "October Swimmer".

The singer's voice is the only grating point about Starsailor for me. I think the songs themselves are strong.

The voice is what sold it to me.
Guess I must be weird.

3 kiiler tracks is more than most albums have got nowadays (RHCP)
