    Having just noticed iGAV's sig.
    I'm wondering how many more PWEI fans there are on the Macrumors forums, and are you going to a Reformation gig?

    I am.

    Brum Sunday and London Monday :D

    I actually have a spare ticket for London on the Monday, ground floor standing if anyones interested?? £25 squid. ;)

    Been a Poppies fan since the very early '90's, seen them... counts fingers

    Phoenix '93
    Aston Villa Amalgamation weekend X 2
    Phoenix '94
    Leeds '94
    Coventry '95
    Leeds '95

    And I'm sure I saw them in '96, but I can't remember... as '96 was a totally alcohol fuelled, orgy frenzy of a year. :D

    So I've been reading they've been working on new songs as well!! :D

    I'm still waiting for them to add a Manchester date to the tour...

    Saw them at the Nation in Liverpool - '94 I think. Knees are still shot from the pogoing :D

    They need to rerelease the back catalogue too. All my stuff is on tape, but the CDs are too hard to get now.

    I've been a fan since the late 80's.
    I can't remember how many times I've seen them:

    Loads in Coventry and Brum
    A couple in London
    and a couple in Cardiff.

    I'm going to the Sat Brum gig, I can't wait!!!

    A new album this year would be nice, a vinyl release of it too for continuity of the collection.

    But how would you rip it to iTunes..?

    A new album would be good - I liked the heavier sound of Looks/Lifestyle and Dos Dedos, maybe bringing in some of Clint's scoring for a new twist. Really liked what he did for Requiem for a Dream.

    Easy.

    Either:
    Via iMic using Final Vinyl then convert to MP3 on my Quicksilver
    or
    Straight into Amadeus II on the Powerbook.
    or
    buy it on CD too!

    Requiem For A Dream is a fantastic soundtrack

    The stuff they were working on in '95/'96 just before they split was soooooo good, very dark and extremely heavy live, songs like 'I am the father' and T+A=$'. :D

    Whether they'll still be in this mindset who know's... Graham left and went all ambient, Fuzz went funk, and Rich went big beat with BRA... only Clint seemed to have pursued the Industrial sound with his PETA stuff, NIN collaborations and his own sound track work (Pi, the Hole etc etc).

    I just hope they don't just churn out all the 'hits' like a jukebox, the poppies were always pushing forward and taking the pwiss, if anything... with commercialised boy band pap like Greenday doing the rounds, we need the poppies more than ever now. :D
