    Having heard both versions of Bed of Thorns today, I think the demo version is at least 10 times better than the album version. The demo, for me, is one of the best I've heard from him in years.

    No not that I know of. I just meant the version from Ghost in the Shell. It's on youtube it was released a few months prior to the album. The album version has too much going on by comparison IMO.

    The North American tour is looking pretty nice and hefty. A friend of mine and I will be at the Atlanta show; this will be his first time seeing Gary and my second time.

    In case you couldn't guess from my avatar, I'm kind of obsessive about that album.

    They're including ALL the other bonus tracks from the remastered CD, too, which has me very excited. The title track has never appeared on vinyl before.

    He's playing in Lancaster?

    I can't imagine that show being anything other than like 3/4 empty. I hope to god I'm wrong.

    don't know if it's the purple vinyl, but the remastered 2xLP is finally up on amazon and it's a much better price (especially with free or cheap shipping)! - https://smile.amazon.com/Dance-Gary-...an+dance+vinyl

    Had a fantastic time at the Atlanta show last night! It's been since 2006 since I've seen Gary live (and not on a DVD). Gary played a nice set and he graced the crowd with I Die: You Die in a second encore. I was able to buy up some good merch; signed poster, signed deluxe CD, regular hoodie, green premium hoodie, t-shirt (for a friend), and tote bag. I may try to post pictures of each item here but we'll see; I know I'm horrible at getting pictures to hang up here. Anyway, I know there was a black premium hoodie available last night in select sizes, vinyl, CDS, and Deluxe CDs also available to be purchased signed.

    Me Not You was also a great support band! Female vocals + female drummer = AWESOME. I thought about getting some of their merch; they had 2 shirt designs and their EP on CD.

    Some of the songs/performances that I was really glad to see/hear live...
    Ghost Nation
    The Fall
    Pray for the Pain You Serve
    Love Hurt Bleed
    A Prayer for the Unborn
    I Die: You Die

    So we've had Dance re-released on to a 2xLP package. What do you all think of it?

    Personally (because of course opinions matter in this day and age) I think it's a good update from the original. Some original tracks featured low volume mastering (at least with my US copy) and the remaster cleaned them up. I should mention that having Dance (title track) and the b-sides in the same package is a great idea! I've longed for a proper release and since I've had the Beggars issued CD, I'm glad they finally made it to vinyl.

    Question: Do you think Beggars will re-release I, Assassin (or even Warriors) after this effort of of Replicas to Dance? With Gary's new popularity it may be something they'll look in to. I know the record store guy I spoke to had never gotten into Gary's work and he was pretty blown away by Dance.

    As far as great finds go... I did find Hybrid on 2xCD at a record store in Asheville, NC for $10. They also had Savage there too (on LP and CD) but I've already picked that up.


    EDIT: Here's a link to an article about the Dance re-issue...

    Looking forward to seeing Gary tonight at Portsmouth. Last time I saw him here was back in 2006.

    Listening to him now being interviewed on local radio. The presenter is giving a good natured argument about nostalgia and so on, grilling him on why he won't do the 80s retro circuit. Probably nothing new for anyone, but it's nice to hear him speaking passionately and having a bit of a laugh. They're playing new songs as well.

    Thinking about the new record... personally I can't help wonder if he might not benefit from working with somebody different in the studio. I'm really enjoying the new songs, but some of the production feels a little familiar now.

    Saw Big Gaz tonight in Edinburgh. Blew me away.

    Seeing the Savage tracks live was something special. When the World Comes Apart and My Name is Ruin were definite highlights in a two hour long highlight.

    What a show.

    Just to join in with the pictures:



    Quick review too then: Sold out show, which is always nice. Missed the support act for cheap beers down the road. Solid performance, as always. Gary didn't say much, but seemed in high spirits. The lights / screens looked ace. New material works so much better live, for me, than on record - In fact I felt the old stuff interrupted the vibe for the new stuff. The encore seemed a little odd too. Nice to have him mess around with the standard set list, but missing out Prayer was a bit of a shame. Just hope he feels able to tour so extensively in the UK in the future. So used to having to travel to see good artists, but Gary keeps it real, which is much appreciated.

    I'm not very good at describing music with words, but this song has something I can't put my finger on that makes it almost addictive. Everything about it is perfect.

    it's unique in gary's catalogue for a multitude of reasons - it has a groove that's not usually present; it has a flirtatiousness in the vocals that's very rare; gary's playing bass and paul gardiner is playing guitar; his voice isn't following a keyboard line, it's just doing its own thing; idunno, everything about it just makes it really interesting and fun and rewarding to listen to, so i love it.

    "Stormtrooper" is a BANGER. Really pleased with the Dance reissue.
