(I'm resending this posting, as last time I forgot to transfer
to ASCII format, sorry.....)

ust a few thoughts on the Banshees new album.

I was at both the Grand gig and the Reading Festival gig
last August, and would say the new songs they played were
far superior to the material from Superstition. Back to the
classic Banshees formula !!!. I also feel the new stuff had
"JuJu/Dreamhouse"ish feel to it, with a bit of PEEPSHOW
thrown in.
(Let's hope Jon Klein's guitar work can match John
McGeogh's excellent guitar work on JuJu & Dreamhouse [IMO])

Fingers crossed the Banshees keep this rougher edge on the
album, and don't let Polydor bully them into watering it
down to follow the main stream success that Superstition
had in the US.

Also let's hope they do a complete tour to promote the
album this time, with loads of gigs in Ireland & Britain!!!
It's been NINE years since they came to Ireland (when they
played three amazing sell-out shows to promote Tinderbox)
and they haven't done a decent tour of Britain in about six
years. Go on Sioux & Co., Your Public Awaits !!!!.

BTW, is the Release date for Polydor & Geffen the same, or
might the album be released in Europe earlier?

Bye for now



I'll post you the Wild Things lyrics and the list
sometime next week.
